Cool little animated video for “God Loves Ugly” by Atmosphere..
Dope lyrics. Feeling the beginning..
“I wear my scars like the rings on a pimp,
I live life like the captain of a sinking ship”
and the ..
“appears more clear in its simplest form,
nobody sees tears when you’re standing in a storm,
abandoning the norm, and handling the harvest,
measuring the worth by the depth of the hardships,
I welcome all the hatred you can aim at my name,
I held on to the sacred ways of how to play the game,
when the soldiers started runnin short on rations,
I began tappin the egg, to spark the hatchin,
make it happen,
and take this captain to the gallows,
I keep steerin us into an area thats shallow,
talkin to my shadow, he advised me not to worry,
he said I should plant my tree and let it rise out of the fury,
so give me some light, a little love and some liquid,
I’m gonna creep through the night,
and put a plug in the spicket,
and when the water grows,
and the dam starts to overflow,
I’ll float atop the flood, holding on to my ugly”
A few months ago, this girl says to me “Don’t you get sick off drawing the same thing all the time?”. And it made me think.. is it all the same? Am I just repeating the same subjects, styles and color selections on all these individual pieces? Or are artists just working on something bigger. Each “piece” is literally just that.. “a piece”, and “the big picture” is really.. “The Big Picture”.
