Credit is mine. Steal and return later.

Days ago, I did a sketch for everyone out here who’s feeling faithless, worn out and thinking of quitting.

For those times I was down and needed inspiration, I often played ‘Encore/Dumb’ if I wasn’t playing Eminem’s songs.

Played this over and over again, so here are my favourite lines and they’re from Linkin Park:
“I’m tired of being what you want me to be,
Feeling so faithless lost under the surface,
Don’t know what you’re expecting of me,
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes,
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow).

I’ve become so numb I can’t feel you there,
I’ve become so tired so much more aware,
I’m becoming this; all I want to do Is be more like me and be less like you.”

Today, become more of you and less of the image the pressure cookers – and career manipulators – are cooking you to be.

Move those feet and hands for what you love. Don’t stay numb.


I did a sketch of Linkin Park’s live performance for you too because live performances make much sense to me than the songs.

Be progressive. Encoré!
