Not 43min. I'd stopped to watch House.

I think others got it wrong when they believe 'all goodness' can be attributed to 'God' while all the bad stuff are attributed to evil. How about this: We're put on this planet; regardless if it's good or bad, it's what we make of it? It's all human preception. Right?

What other explaination can anyone offer when confronted with childern trying to feed themselves in a city dump just outside of Phenom Penh? They deserve it? Why? They're being punish? For what?

A recent survey, in order to be ABOVE 50% of the WORLD (the 6billion people), one must own about +2,500US$ worth of goods. We westerners do own that...+1,000.00 computer & software. +150.00 music player. +2,000.00 car. +5,000 worth of books, art books, clothes, etc. ...and just because Bill Gates walks in the bar, it doesn't mean that OUR average income rose!!!


Back to Oekaki... Sorry, I didn't do a guy. I didn't do too much out of my comfortzone with this sketch. It was an excersize, life the first sketch, in order to break out of my frame of mind. Maybe 'to break into a differnt frame of mind'.

After I excersize some of my feelings in sketches, then I can concentrate on drawing a guy or two. Maybe some yaoi-ish type stuff.

*sigh* forgot to asign this sketch to the Doodle room. this was more like +2hr... *think* I'd visited Mainland China, the rual area is very similar to Appilachan USA, poverty stricken. I don't know what to say..... The child exhibits the classic sign of malnutrision...the body spends more energy growing the brain/head, while conserving energy in the growth of the rest of the body.

Good news, one of the craphead in charge during the Cambodian genocide had been charged.

Maybe I want to be driven (in my life)...maybe it's to take on some of the burden for having the luxary to develope my art skills while others struggles for a meal. Maybe I'm trying to draw for them.

There are bazillions of organizations that you can volunteer your time and energy towards helping those in need. :)
