God’s way is better than your way. His plan is bigger than your plan. His dream for your life is more rewarding, more fulfilling, better than you’ve ever dreamed of. Now stay open and let God do it His way.
My series of paintings done for the Doctor Who comics series! (Well, the first three, at least… wink wink.) They are the covers of the #1 issues for each respective Doctor - Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth. It’s the first time I’ve released the artwork without the titles and whatnot - this was a MAJOR project for me this year, started all the way back in 2013 - I’m proud and honored to be so deeply involved with an official project like this. Here’s to more covers and Doctor Who in the future!

Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.
I began to lighten up with becoming angry with my father for how he phrased what he wanted to say. Of course, we should all learn how to communicate effectively, but it’s not as easy when you are working with a vocabulary that you didn’t grow up using. My dad is an amazing English speaker, but that didn’t mean that he didn’t have slip-ups at times. Certain cultures often express similar things but in very different ways. Since I began to understand his situation a bit more, I’ve tried to explain certain things to him, conveying to him words that are a better fit for what he would like to say, or terms that are more encouraging to the conversation.
For my dad, “yelling” probably just means being passionate about a subject, a characteristic I can identify in many Portuguese people. I know no one is perfect, but this made me rethink how I viewed my dad."
I’m so tired of people telling me German is an “ugly, angry” language. When my German teacher tells us jokes it’s the sweetest, happiest language in the world. When I teach my father the word for daughter he smiles, repeating “Tochter” to himself until he gets it right, and in that moment German sounds like pride. There’s nothing angry or ugly about a language that never says goodbye, only “until we meet again.”
