For good and for bad (mostly bad) I have been saying this a lot lately. Made in Illustrator from hand-drawn sketch and animated in Photoshop.

Mini Manifesto

I do know I want to be a good person. I get fulfillment and satisfaction from doing good. I understand the importance of growth and I consider myself to be always growing and learning in life. My wisdom comes from my experiences and observations. If ever someone chooses to teach me something that can help me be a better person, I welcome it. I am established enough to take criticism.

I do know I’m not perfect… Nobody is.

I don’t know all the answers… Nobody does. (FOLLOW YOUR GUT)

Nothing will get better until it is addressed. If I mess up I want to know how I can improve in order to be a better person and prevent future complications. If I think I can teach you something from an occurrence, (something that I have learned from experience and/or observation) then I will share my wisdom as way to help you in the same way that I would like to be helped. This help I may offer should never be confused as me trying to change someone. People can only change themselves (this I have learned from experience). I do know I am passionate about my beliefs. I will always stand up for my beliefs because I believe they are for the greater good. I will continue to stand up for these beliefs until someone else can teach me otherwise.

Some of the banner’s I designed with students in The Art and Archaeology of Me 2013 class at Discovery World. Banners were designed with personal elements students created and gathered throughout the class. The final product was a part of two inspiring outdoor installations called The Milwaukee Observatory.
