A bit of advice for my future children. 

Do you guys have any advice for them? 

I finally filled up a journal. Here it is:

For all us guys.

<p.s.a. start>PLEASE READ ALL. I don’t like when people believe my art is saying something it isn’t <p.s.a. end>

The Christian and the LGBT communities disagree. Christians view homosexuality as sinful. The LGBT community does not see homosexuality as sinful. 

As the discussion about gay marriage has heated up, I’ve seen a lot of emotionally charged, close-minded, and misinformed ideas and arguments on both sides of the discussion. This topic is very important and people should talk about it with those of the other side. However, we need to do so civily, having the mindset and attitude of a learner. 

So that’s all I’m saying. We should disagree and we should argue, but we can and should do so in the kindest, most intellectually honest way possible.

"i wish i were a bird."

 Remember your Creator 
   in the days of your youth, 
before the days of trouble come 
   and the years approach when you will say, 
   “I find no pleasure in them”— 
 before the sun and the light 
   and the moon and the stars grow dark, 
   and the clouds return after the rain; 
when people rise up at the sound of birds, 
   but all their songs grow faint; 
when the almond tree blossoms 
   and the grasshopper drags itself along 
   and desire no longer is stirred. 
Then people go to their eternal home 
   and mourners go about the streets.

-Ecclesiastes 12

An old one. 

I got this huge fly drawing and I don’t know what to do with the rest of the page.

We put on our imagination caps in art class and went on a expedition to my backyard to gather drawings of the remains of the exotic wildlife for a scientific journal.  

My cover art for Marshall Conn’s “Virtual Boy EP”.

Get ready world! Marshall Conn, front man of The Gott Mountain Boys, has been working on a solo project to tantalize your tastebuds! This acoustic set goes from La Dispute covers, to scathing criticisms of George Lucas, to emotional Pokemon themed ballads of tragic proportions. 

Hear what the critics are saying:

"I’ve never experienced anything as epic as Marshall Conn’s ‘Virtual Boy EP’." -Peter Jackson

"Marshall Conn is the voice of a generation!" -Deepak Chopra

"The tragedy of sin is not that you did something wrong, but that you left God"

The ultimate goal of Christianity is to know, follow, and worship God. The relationship between God and ourself is freeing, and intimate, and encouraging, and convicting, and purifying. It’s wonderful, and it’s terrible that many Christians, myself included, can turn our relationship with God into something that brings us shame and guilt. There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ, but instead of focusing on the love of God, many Christians use feelings of condemnation a motivator to live a holy life.

I pray we have the same attitude as Paul; “But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.”
