Tired

Every day I get up and go to a job I DESPISE, just to stay alive. I have nothing going on, no real friends. I love to draw and I like sharing what I do. I sometimes get commissions and the people that contact me for commissioned work know what I do, but still, expect me to do something based on what someone else has done or wants me to do something I do not want to do. Or even worse I'll get people that want me to do a picture so they can share to their instagram or FB just for likes.
Likes weaken my soul. People don't share they like or ignore. I know I'm not all that but I'm tired.

Blake and Alexis Carrington

Growing up, my favorite TV show was DYNASTY. The story lines were way out there, the costumes were over the top and the one-liners were worthy of using on a real life enemy or two. Here's my vision for Blake and Alexis' Wedding.
