Day 28 of #Recovery: #Loyalty & #Love Not a long story at all. Just what was on my mind at the moment. I grabbed my #SketchPad, doodled some little images as they came, scanned them into illustrator, traced them, added a #PaintBucket that I found, reworked and gave some threshold value to, threw the #ROSESandDAFFODILS color swatches on there, scribbled a background, and Boom, #FIN. Thank you all for coming, #GodBlessYou / #GoodNight.

Day 21 of #Recovery: #BLANKSTARE What will we do when/if technology ends? There’s a little bit of irony in this piece, seeing how my work is being displayed via internet. However, I still question it, “What will we do when/if technology ends?”. I can almost surely say that more than 80% of the people in the world invest most of their day on technical devices. From #VideoGames, to our #CellPhones, to #Computers, to #Television, and on and on… #Technology has become somewhat of a #ghostly figure of #worship. We have become a generation that lives by it, like #Zombies. While this is all a part of #evolution, don’t forget, #God is still the reason for it all. He deserves some of that daily investment. Just write yourself a reminder to thank him everyday. I say #Alhamdulillah (All Praise and Thanks to God), some say #ThankGod, #PraiseJesus, some praise #Jehovah; what I’m saying is, whatever your faith is, just don’t let technology detour you from it. Remember, we live in a world with a system, a system that operates exactly how they want it to, and we subconsciously fall right into it, every time. Just stay aware. Peace & Love.

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

Day 8 of #Recovery: We live in a country where it isn't ok for us kill in defense, but it's totally perfect for us to be killed just for not walking on the sidewalk, possessing candy, speaking our mind, and being a minority/middle class. If the outcome of standing your ground, or simply doing act's of defense or innocence will conclude in you being killed, then I say SHOOT BACK, It's the only logical option. The Jim Crow Laws are still so very much alive, the only difference with the modern Jim Crow Laws than the 19th Century laws is they don't have a southern barrier, they're now nation wide. We as US Citizens will NEVER have power in this nation, no matter how much voting, picketing, rioting, or petitions we get signed. They do what they want. They kill who they want. They get away with it all. #TheyDontCareAboutUs #ItsNothingNew #RacismLives #NoJustice #SadButTrue

Day 6 of #Recovery: Throughout my life, "creativity" feels like one of the only things that I've ever completely connected with. Which makes it my "Way Of Life Forever"... The ironic part about this acronym is that I actually LOVE wolve's... so it was only right that I used WOLF in the meaning of today's piece. I hope you enjoy. Spread the word.

Day 2 of #Recovery, still painful... However, I was able to sit down and actually draw a little. My wife bought me some colored pencils yesterday and a sketch book... I figure, why not get right to it. Since most of the pain now is in my neck, front and back, I wanted this piece to reflect what's going on inside of my body. Screws, Titanium, Pain. But all is love. Thank you for viewing.
