I Am Human: Sketchbook of an Addict
It’s NEVER too late to follow your DREAMS.
I Am Human is about our shared humanity: about dreams, and the sometimes tumultuous and traumatic journeys it takes to realize them. Sometimes the greatest gifts in life are disguised as the hardest of lessons tucked inside the deepest of healings.
This story really began the first day I walked alone to school. I remember it vividly. I was terrified to walk another step. When I reached the end of my yard, I was completely frozen, paralyzed by fear. But I knew the only way that I was going to get out of this was to take another step.
In 2001, after years of addiction, being arrested became the next step toward salvation. It was a turning point in my life. I had to unravel to get back to myself.
Figure drawing became my path. This is the thing: art is largely an exercise in self-discovery, in re-discovering the world around you with new eyes. Join me as I learn to see life and salvation through art.
Filled with over 100 color sketches and paintings.
