My mistake.

It takes courage to say you’re sorry. I’ve learned that the longer you wait  to apologise, the more difficult it becomes, and then one day it’s just impossible. Mostly because it will have become irrelevant. What ever you did no longer matters to the wronged party. Ironically, by that time, right or not, you kinda lose the argument by default. Because your “opponent” has moved on from what you still mean to make right. The sooner you begin to fix what broke, the quicker you can leave it behind you.

Very often adults/teachers/lecturers won’t admit to kids/students when they’re wrong. Google will expose you before you have time to edit the Wikipedia page. You lose your reliability as well as the student’s respect and trust. It tells a student the little bit of authority you have is more important than your responsibility to actually teach the truth. They realise that you would rather compromise their education than your ego. Would you pay any attention to someone like that?

Braaf wees.

Beetle juice.

Quote by P. G. Wodehouse.

We all tend to think we’re drinking from the overflowing cup of life Saturday night. It’s only Sunday morning that you see the beetle… My advice is, shut your eyes, tip the cup, don’t chew, just swallow – you could probably do with the protein.

A handy guide crammed full of top tips and quite interesting nothings such as:

  • Bat Country gained independence in the late 1950’s – it’s highest tourist figures were recorded in the following two decades.
  • Upon arrival each visitor is greeted by a vague sense of familiarity.
  • Although all the locals are lunatics, they’re very hospitable and incredibly creative.
  • The national animal of Bat Country, is not a bat as one would assume, but rather a white rabbit.
  • Weather is known to switch between extremes very quickly and without warning,
  • Jim Morrison teaches a popular cooking class on Tuesdays.
  • Tom Waitts and Nick Cave collaborated on the country’s anthem.
  • Does not perform well at international team sport events.
  • It is common place for doctors to prescribe books and albums instead of/in conjunction with pharmaceutics.

… and many other useful bits of information, sure to improve your trip through fantasy, fear and loathing.

Inspired by the life of Hunter Thompson and the work of Ralph Steadman, who was brave enough to illustrate Hunter’s insanity.

anger

Today’s doodle is inspired by a Basquiat quote. Basquiat’s one of the most prolific artists of the 20th century… that’s a lot of anger. Sometimes being able to paint/draw is a blessing for the artist, what would he have done with all that anger if he became an accountant? It would have done what it wanted with him instead! Maybe if more people try to draw through stuff the world could be a friendlier (if not only a prettier) place.
