this picture should have more then the amounts of notes it has, this shows us that not ever thing is “picture perfect” and that behind that smile and those eyes there is fear . So i beg you to please reblog this instead of a pair of shoes, someone smoking a blunt, and clothes … because this picture is literally worth 1,000 words
This is insanely powerful.
As someone who grew up in an abusive household, I will never fucking fail to reblog this. People pull bullshit all the time over people getting abused. They make it to where it’s covered up, the victim’s fault, or they don’t care about it. This is happening RIGHT NOW and could be happening to your own neighbor, mother, sister, brother, grandparents, teachers, mail-deliverer. Anyone. IT is a nightmare.
And don’t forget that it isn’t always physical or visible.
A new piece I created for Julia Rothman’s upcoming book The Who, the What and the When: 65 Artists Illustrate the Secret Accomplices of History, (Chronicle).
I was assigned Maurice Sendak’s brother Jack, a writer, collaborator and extremely important figure in Maurice’s life. I can really relate to those magical, safe spaces siblings create together. My own sister has been such a big source of inspiration, I quite literally don’t know who I would be without her.
BIG thanks to Julia for asking me to be a part of this project. I am so excited to see all of the amazing contributions come together! I am already so WOW’d by my friend Jensine’s piece.
