Description

Our people using terms like Sickler to define themselves as a Disease, this saddens me.

Why Sickler?

Stay Positive, don't allow ignorance to keep you down at an even lower level than your pain has kept you for so long. To overcome major difficulties you must be empowered do so. Words like Sickler does not define who you are... Demand that they change the language and allow you, your dignity... For in spite of your pain you are a human being worthy of esteem and respect due to any other. My body is not free of these chains and cycles of Pain but I can fight to free my mind. Let us equip and supply one another with the awareness and tools to gain the ability to live our best lives.

The responses have been amazing... people really surprise me. I did not think STYLE had so many enslaved mentally. I enjoyed the Harlem Renaissance Wall Street guy the most so far.

Please do note this is part of a campaign to raise awareness for Sickle Cell Disease so I am linking this feature all over the net... but as a painter this was an awesome experience. Yall crack me up.

Please read up on Jean-Michel Basquiat check out some of his video interviews on Youtube. Don't worry about your criticism of my Art, what can your criticism of my Style or Art do to me that Sickle Cell Disease has not?

This is for a much greater purpose.
