Day 17 of #Recovery: #selfexplanatory #NoJustice #NoPeace. I will attempt to get back to my regularly scheduled art installments tomorrow. These past few weeks have just been kind of... you know.

Day 16 pt2 of #Recovery: I had to do a part 2, as today’s display of #NoJustice has been on my mind. Quoting #Jdilla from his song “F@#K The #Police”. Just #expressing how I feel. Here are a few lyrics from the song.

 

“And all a ni**a see in the news

Is cop corruption

Ni**as gettin popped for nothin’

And ni**as get stopped

And cops pull out glocks and buss’ em

Yall need to get shot for nothing!”

Day 16 of #Recovery: #JayWalk #ColorOutsideTheLines. Today’s piece sort of has a double meaning as to why I did it. I wanted to do something with shapes and that’s kind of outside of my character as an artist. I believe as an artist, there shouldn’t be any lines. So if I want to do something very in depth one day, and something extremely simple the next, it should be ok… I’m allowed to. We all are allowed to do what we want, to do what we feel. Our only restriction is our own doubt or fear. The other meaning kind of revolves around what’s going on in #America (aka #Amerikkka) today. I kind of feel less and less like abiding by the “systems” rules. I feel like #JayWalking… without the risk of being #shot, #choked, or #beat for it. I feel more and more like having my rights. My rights to be a #human, to be #equal, to be #free, to #express myself… and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. P.S. My surgery incision is healing pretty well.

Day 15 of #Recovery: #Respect Yourself, #Invest in Yourself. This doesn't mean go out buy new outfits & shoes everyday.... Invest in your mind and spirit. Having nice things is always good, though lately I've been trying to think smarter. I could go out and buy a nice new shirt, or I could stay home design a nice new shirt for someone else to buy from me. I'm a full-blooded creative being... I'm constantly thinking about what I could do to enhance myself creatively. Whether it is new equipment, learning new software and #techniques, working on practice pieces, etc. I've never been too big on trends, extensive/expensive fashion, or much of anything outside of #creating. Most of the time, I feel like whatever's out there in the world isn't anything that I couldn't produce on my own. I'm not against supporting brands, I support them often; I'm just more into developing myself into all that I can be. How do you think all of those brands & companies that people support got to where they are? #SelfFocus #Invest

Day 14 of #Recovery: I'm still not 100%, however I have been given the release from my surgeon to go back to #work (my #dayjob). It felt good to go back, it felt good to be #able to go back to work. Today was day one of work & recovery project in the same day, along with all the other little tasks that I take on. I think this piece is pretty cool... it's #simple, it delivers the #message, and that's it. Oh yeah, I think it's cool how the slant of the keyboard gives the #illusion of the frame being crooked. I hope that the post isn't too small to read. Thanks again for all of your support.

Day 13 of #Recovery: Like I mentioned at the begining of this project, I'll pretty much just be doing whatever I feel that day. Today I just felt like doing a #KarateKid vs #Jordan piece. #Kicks vs Kicks, Why? I have no idea. I guess that's the mind of an #Artist, we kinda just project stuff. However, I hope you all enjoy. I think it's kinda funny and cool... at the same time.

Day 12 of #Recovery: TRY TO #CARE. We live in a very #careless world, which is the number one cause of all negative things that surround us. #Caring isn't a difficult effort, in fact, it's a natural instinct that we were all born with. To not care is to consciously resist that instinct (in most cases). In other cases, amazingly, there are really a lot of #Heartless people on this #Earth. Today, I'm just thinking of everything that goes on in this world, and a lot of it is a result of #Carelessness. I just put in my request to #God for more #Care, #Love, and #Support. We need it.

Day 11 of #Recovery: #MyFather, Winston David Butterfield was the best man ever invented. He passed on July 1st, 2014... He's now my #GuardianAngel, I feel him everyday. His spirit was with me during my surgery, just to keep and eye on everything and make sure they did everything right. He takes every step and every turn with me. For him, I will be more than ALL I can be, I will be #Magnificent! Daddy, I love you sooo much!!! I wear your necklace everyday, I keep you with me 24/7. You have always been my #Hero, I'm happy that it was you and mom who raised me, Y'all did the most perfect job. #iMissYou #iLoveYou #MyTeacher #MyHero #MyDaddy #Dad #Father

Day 10 of #Recovery: #HappyThanksgiving!!! I'll leave out the stories of #Squanto, slaves, lynching, etc. And focus on the important meaning that our modern world goes by. Today is a day to reflect on things that you're thankful for. The number one thing on my list will always be #God. No matter how tough life gets, I look back and remind myself, at least I have life, and a healthy one at that. There are so many people in this world who are fighting to survive, whether it be on actual life support, or sleeping on a bench in these cold winter days. We have so much to be #thankful for, and I believe that it starts with #Life & #God.

Day 9 of #Recovery: Today I went for my surgery follow up... the doctor say's I'm doing pretty good. My recovery is going well, my spirits are a little less than that, seeing all that's going on with the publication's of our kids being shot and killed. There has to be some kind of #Change that is possible to put in action. #MarvinGaye said it best in one of his lines fom #InnerCItyBlues... "Crime is increasing / Trigger happy policing / Panic is spreading / God knows where, where we're heading" This is the world we live in. #TheyDontCareAboutUs #ItsNothingNew #RacismLives #NoJustice #SadButTrue
