Hahah, should’ve thought of this. Minus the “sorry” part.
“Still, I wonder. Why--how--have I managed to learn these things while others have not? Why have I managed somehow to leave behind at least for now what looks like wreckage, and shape something solid from my life? My prognosis, after all, was very poor. In idle moments, I still slide my fingers under the sleeves of my shirt and trace the raised white nubs of scars that track my arms from years and years of cutting. How did I learn to stop cutting and collapsing, and can I somehow transmit this ability to others? I don't know. It's a core question for me in my work. I believe my strength has something to do with memory, with that concept of fluid time. For while I recall with clarity the terror of abuse, I also recall the green and lovely dream of childhood, the moist membrane of a leaf against my nose, the toads that peed a golden pool in the palm of my hand. Pleasures, pleasures, the recollections of which have injected me with a firm and unshakable faith. I believe Dostoevsky when he wrote, 'If man has one good memory to go by, that may be enough to save him.' I have gone by memory."

When Lions fight they try to look big and powerful to scare off the opponent.
When Lionesses fight, it’s to the death,
And I think that pretty much sums up the difference between males and females. One tries to big itself up, one won’t back down.
"I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt."

I’m excited to finally show you guys the new San Diego Comic Con exclusive ASSASSIN’S CREED poster by Angry Blue and myself!
It’s being released this weekend, in tandem with the release of the animated short directed by Rob Zombie, with artwork by yours truly, finished by AngryBlue, and color by John Rauch, presented by New Science & Ubisoft.
The image features the game’s lead character, Arno, in a stained glass window composed of images from the actual animated short.
The print is an 18 x 24”, 3-color silkscreen print on natural toned paper, with a clear gloss overlay containing metallic flake, and is signed by both artists. The print is limited to a run of 700 copies total. 500 will be given away at San Diego Comic Con 2014. After the show, AngryBlue and I each will have 100 available on our respective websites.
