this is beautiful.
Also does anyone else notice that each of his eyes are colors from the rainbow?

"There is nothing to fear but fear itself"? this quote is one I love because if you deeply think about it's true everything we fear from sharks to everything those are all fears so when John F.Kennedy said "There is nothing to fear but fear itself' I believe that that quote is telling us that all our fears are fears itself.I would like to add that even if we are all afraid of things and changes we all need to remember that fear cannot control us we control it so never be afraid of change and things.Man what a sad, and jacked up we live in seriously though, please face your fears never ever run away from them cause one day it will come back to get you.I hope that all of us can face our fears and won't run or turn away and ignore.Trust me I know that it's really tough but if you have faith and perseverance YOU CAN DO IT if you you won't run or ignore.Don't worry there are people who will support you and help you through this.

This made me sneeze in the best way possible.

What scares me here isn't what they have done or will do. It's the number or people I've run into that seem to be accepting this as the new status quo, my self included. That I wasn't fully shocked or enraged by what happened, numbed to it, that I was more of the mind set 'well that's who they decided to go after this time'. I hope that it is not a slow acceptance, but rather just being at a loss of what to do.  --- When I look at this art I see tears of sadness, but eyes enraged and full of purpose. In the world of art mimics life, and life mimics art, I have seen that face before. Well done.

This is definitely true and something I can relate to. I think we just live in a numb world because we're exposed to everything, we have to be numb to an extent.  I think that's why art is so important to me, because when things like this have happened I do have a sort of cold outlook towards it. I don't immediately cry, I don't see it as the worst thing that's ever happened and I know it will happen again. But through art I can kind of attempt to express those feelings, which may have been buried or numbed, to the point where sometimes when I am drawing I actually cant stop crying.  When I read or hear that it touched other people too it makes it even more worthwhile to me. I really appreciate this comment (:

Hypocrisy is what defines you all this rotten site. Why are not brave and say who was the author of the massacre, or are afraid to take a pump Alá in the ass. As always, they will want to crucify Christians for this.
Christians aren't the only ones being targeted, and it's high time the far right understood that.

What about you? If you care so much about defining who was to blame why not say so in this comment? Are YOU not brave to say it? Cause apparently everything has to be a source of info.

I'm not the media and am no news source to. I'm an artist and this is my reaction from the event. You want to blame me with bs reasons look at yourself. You're mad I get it but taking it out here whilst being hypocritical yourself is definitely not a productive use of your time.

Alright, the "author of the massacre," by my estimation, was a fundamentalist who held only to the extremes of his religion.  Like any asshole who bombs an abortion clinic.  Like any asshole who claims that women behaving differently should be burned at the stake.  Like any asshole who tortures people to force conversion.  Like any asshole who claims that only their religion has good people following it.  That is who the "author of the massacre" was, a man very much like you.
