    Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu (Happy Birthday, Mother Teresa!) OC

    "Don't look for big things, just do small things with great love." Better known as Mother Teresa, Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu was an Albanian born Indian Roman Catholic Nun, who from the age of 12 after being impressed by a group of missionaries, committed her life to serving Christ. She wrote to her Sisters, "To the good God nothing is little, because He is so great and we so small—that is why He stoops down and takes the trouble to make those little things for us—to give us ...

    Hunter S Thompson OC

    The quote lies in a book called Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-Crossed Child In the Final Days of the American Century, penned by Thompson and published in 2003. The quote was in a response to a story he tells about how when he was 9, he and his friends tipped over a mailbox in front of a bus (the driver of which was especially cruel to him and his friends). Tampering with mail, of course, is a federal offense, and it brought two Federal Agents to his door. They began questioning h...

    DeRay Mckesson (Happy Birthday!) OC

    I was literally putting the finishing touches this piece to send as a birthday present for my friend @DeRay late on July 10, 2016. Some people on Twitter sent me his Periscope to watch the ‪#‎BatonRouge‬ protests live. I watched live as he was tackled from behind and arrested. (Full video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwGlwyA6jNI) Brittany eventually got his phone, calmed everyone down, and started getting people organized. He was eventually released, but was one of hundreds of peo...

    Helen Keller (Happy Birthday!) OC

    "The world is full of suffering, but it is also full of the overcoming of it." This quote was in an 3-part essay Helen Keller originally wrote when she was only 23 entitled "Optimism." The full passage reads, "Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. My optimism, then, does not rest on the absence of evil, but on a glad belief in the preponderance of good and a willing effort always to cooperate with the good, that it may prevail...

    Four Wheels move the Body. Two Wheels Move the Soul. (World Motorcycle Day!) OC

    Pencil, then vector, then canvas. I drew a sketch of the engine of my 1981 Yamaha XS400 motorcycle while I was stopped on the side of the road. Years later, Gallery 788 in Baltimore held a Motorcycle Art show, and so I brought out the sketch, drew it in vector, and added the quote.

    Boarder on Rail (Go Skateboarding Day!) OC

    Boarder on Rail was done in prep for a cover for the magazine "Monopod". I really liked how it turned out as a sketch, and later scanned my sketchbook to create the vector. It was done hard-pencil; no sketching (I'm still trying to train myself to do that) completely from memory. I especially love the fact that his shirt meshes completely with the background, leaving his right arm floating in space. This later appeared in vector on my business cards. For those of you who might wo...

    Kerry Kleid opened the doors for professional women motocross riders by becoming the first woman to possess an American Motorcyclist Association professional motocross license, as well as being inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame. She applied for the license in the 1970s so that she could enter an all-male racing competition. Although her request was initially denied, she eventually received the license, and consequently succeeded in progressing from the novice to expert class in less than a year...
