Just a lil snippet of what goes on in my head lol! I call this “Disco punk” - This represents both sides of my personality, The very girly side, and the “Tom-boy side” aka the punk side of me. - I’ve always had a huge appreciation for colors, it’s honestly one of the best gifts Jehovah has given us and it blows my mind that colors give you happy feelings, or at least that’s how it is for me! Jehovah’s work is so amazing 🌈
- If it isn’t obvious, I’m very into the 60s-70s, which is what the flowers and disco represent - Being raised by my mom, who was very much into punk, all different kinds, had made me grown to love it as well. In this drawing, I tried to include the beautiful things about punk! First off, the checkered print— checkered print was actually something Ska-Punk had brought into trend, which was to represent blacks and whites, literally just all people of any color! Ska originated in Jamaica, Punk in the UK. Secondly, the yellow shoelaces on docs— this represents anti-racism. Colored shoe laces on boots were a huge thing in the punk days! It was to show which kind of punk you identified as, the other colors don’t represent such nice things... but yellow or black were the most common, which is why docs come with yellow laces when you buy boots, the company is showing which punks they like to represent! #punk#60s#70s#disco#hippie#colorful#art#adobedraw
There’s too much beauty in the world going to waste.
Too much talent going unnoticed.
Too much creativity crushed beneath the wheel of corporate branding and what’s trending.
But it’s time to wake up.
And I looked into the eyes of people and I saw helplessness.
I saw hopelessness.
I saw humans searching for a way out.
Because when those Fascist dictators posing as righteous men come for you with their big leather boots to shut you up,
To put a gag in your mouth,
To send you away to a penal colony,
You better be prepared to fight for what you believe in.
Forty three years ago this week my faux husband(Michael McDonald) and the rest of the Doobie Brothers released “Takin it to the Streets.” I was 6.75 years old. I can’t remember the name of my first kiss, I don’t know what happened to my first boss but I can smell my Dads Oldsmobile station wagon, I can smell the heat of that NYC summer and I remember how my head bopped, my body danced and how loud I sang every time this came on the radio in 1976. I hope 43 years from now the Youngs have music that let them time travel to joy! #thedoobiebrothers#1976#genx#music#joy#michaelmcdonald#nyc#disco
