This feels like a joke to me. I mean, I don’t mind it, but it feels like a joke, right?

What?!?

How The “Tiny WPA” Is Transforming Neighborhoods, With Help From Teenage Girls

Young girls are designing public infrastructure for their cities as part of the Tiny WPA project. In South Chicago, teenage girls made an impact that adults couldn’t because they were from the community and seen as unthreatening to gangs. They ended up inspiring the entire neighborhood.

"Augustus Waters," I said, looking up at him, thinking that you cannot kiss anyone in the Anne Frank House, and then thinking that Anne Frank, after all, kissed someone in the Anne Frank House, and that she would probably like nothing more than for her home to have become a place where the young and irreparably broken sink into love."

I was there the day they filmed this, and after every single take, I would be like, “THAT WAS AWESOME! ALL MY DREAMS ARE COMING TRUE! MAKE THEM DO IT AGAIN!”
p.s. People have been asking why in this shot she isn’t wearing her cannula. It will be obvious when you see the movie, but fear not: She has her cannula in the whole time.

"It Was Time to Do More Than Protest": Activists Admit to 1971 FBI Burglary That Exposed COINTELPRO

Jan. 8 2013

One of the great mysteries of the Vietnam War era has been solved. On March 8, 1971, a group of activists — including a cabdriver, a day care director and two professors — broke into an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania. They stole every document they found and then leaked many to the press, including details about FBI abuses and the then-secret counter-intelligence program to infiltrate, monitor and disrupt social and political movements, nicknamed COINTELPRO. They called themselves the Citizens’ Commission to Investigate the FBI. No one was ever caught for the break-in. The burglars’ identities remained a secret until this week when they finally came forward to take credit for the caper that changed history. Today we are joined by three of them — John Raines, Bonnie Raines and Keith Forsyth; their attorney, David Kairys; and Betty Medsger, the former Washington Post reporter who first broke the story of the stolen FBI documents in 1971 and has now revealed the burglars’ identities in her new book, “The Burglary: The Discovery of J. Edgar Hoover’s Secret FBI.”

Happy New Year, folks! It’s been a while since I’ve posted some process art. Above or below, I present to you my Superman Unchained variant cover. This was particularly fun to do for multiple reasons. The first, I was able to choose a Superman from any era and put him in any situation I wanted. Pure freedom. The second, I got to stretch out my coloring muscles (which is always a treat since I’m a control freak). Lastly, much like a lot of people, my love for Superman goes far back. It’s always an honor whenever I get a chance to contribute his legacy.

I also wanted to thank you all for sticking with me. I promise, 2014 is going to be an even bigger year!

The creative process is so cool to see :)
