Heart on his sleeve like a badge of honour.

I got this surprise in the mail. How awesome is this?
The artist Ted Basdevant sent this original artwork to me, just because he’s an excellent person. So generous. I only mentioned that I liked his art and he donated it to me. Amazing.
It’s a truly beautiful work and it looks even better in person, I really love it. Can’t wait to frame it and hang it on my wall.
I encourage you to follow his tumblr for more and support artists on tumblr.
Glad it has found a good home on the other side of the world !
Moments are only that. Gone before our eyes. Flashes of contentment. Hollow, empty and uncertain.
But uncertainty is one of the few certainty. I know that I don’t know. I’m not ok with it but it is what it is.
Overwhelming lies we are told, that we so desperately want to believe.
I don’t believe but I do hope … sometimes.
Happiness is a reblog.
Anonymous asked: I love your work, especially the mixed media stuff, something eerie that really appeals to me. I noticed a lot of your "people" have blanked out out white eyes, does it mean anything ?
Thank you. But why ask as an anon ?
Anyway, good question that I am not sure I can fully answer. I generally don’t really like to impose my interpretation on the viewer. I like to let people decide what the picture is telling them; but there are some vague answers I can give you, I guess.
Not seeing or not wanting to see, hiding the real world … whatever that is… or maybe it is to hide FROM the real world.
Anonymity that is the norm for most.
I don’t know … what do you reckon ?
