    Today is...

    (Edit, 2011: Today is actually Sept. 10th, but I think I'm going to spend tomorrow avoiding TVs, radios, and computers. Be good to each other, everybody.)

    September 11th, 2005.

    I painted this in December of 2001, but thought I'd post it today.

    Today is...

    Wow, that is really symbolically gorgeous Tristan, a beautiful homage to those who died.

    I still remember back to that day, it was unbelievable, like out of a movie or something, seemed so surreal.

    Amazing painting, Elwell; messages with it on so many levels. it's still very wierd to me to think back to that day and realize 4 years have actually passed since then.

    I can't beleive how long ago that was. I was still in highschool. I did'nt even realize it was the 11th. There's a marvel comics tribute book of comic artists drawing scenes to commemorate. some very touching stuff in there. I have to read that again.

    so? it's also many people's birthdays, many people's anniversaries, many people's dying days.

    i've just, never really cared. until i saw ground zero in new york. then i realised how big it was. but it's stupid that there're building a memorial tower there. it just hits me as wasted money and space.

    p.s anybody notice that the two towers' silouette spelled out the number 11? it's a little freaky.

    That what my father told my when I was ten and I told him I wanted to be an artist when I grew up.

    IDD. Conspiracy theory~

    It's still a tragedy though. That's a beautif design, Elwell.

    broken lizard,

    I see from yout profile that you just turned thirteen. Assuming that's actually true, allow me to offer you a little bit of fatherly advice:

    Shut

    The Fuck

    Up.
