Centering of the century

The rants and ramblings of a crafter/student/hiker/nature lover/life appreciater/dreamer/artist and more...I still get excited over the little things...(dirty I know)...I will eventually be posting my arts/crafts and various other projects I'm currently working on as well as posts related to or supporting any cause I am interested in or am wanting to raise awareness of.

I believe in progress not perfection, learning from the tough times and hakuna matata...

I choose to stay positive though not unaware of this world that is falling apart all around us.

"Eggplant is an Indian crop, so [Monsanto does] genetic engineering of eggplant. They could have chosen 500 vegetables. Why don’t they choose potatoes for India? Why eggplant? Because it is native to India and we have 4,500 varieties. Why do they want to plant – by bullying – on six million acres – GM corn in Mexico? Because corn is the sacred crop of Mexico and the Andes. So basically, while the justification is, “We are doing science,” the reality is they are unleashing a war against our sacred cultures."

I’ve loved this quote since I was a boy. Made sense to do this illustration. Thinking of hand printing a few to sell online.

A new piece from Chiara Bautista

Dear You,


I will always love you and I will forever stand by you.
I will protect you and support your thoughts and words.
No one is like you and no one can replace you because you are perfect, just the way you are.
You are flawed and you are insane, but that doesn’t make you any less amazing in my…
