I can not believe today is the very last day of the Oprah Winfrey Show! I knew this day wass coming because I was watching when Oprah made the announcement back in 2009 that she was ending her show, but still... I know I'm going to be sad and need to mourn a bit. I was tearing up watching the shows on Monday and Tuesday. My weekday afternnons will never be the same.*sigh* I'm going to miss her show, but I guess OWN is something bigger and better. Quite frankly I am freakin' estatic that a self-made billionare black women OWNs her own network! Gives me that much more incentive to get my serious hustle on and become a part of that exclusive club. Lord knows we could use many, many...MANY more women of color in possitions of power and influence in order to counter a lot of the negative propoganda aimed directly at black women ( Talking to you Psycology Today!), but I digress...
Cheers to you Oprah!

I was walking through the maze to the train at 34th street to take the A train home when I saw or rather heard this. It was such a pleasant surprise. They started off next to one of them doomsday people who say the world is going to end tomorrow *rolling eyes*. They moved to this spot where I was able to record them. This gets people to drop bills. I saw all the bills when I dropped my dollor in thier music case. This is one of many reasons I love New York!
Below are some pics of another illustrator that inspires me, Arturo Elena. He's a self taught illustrator from Spain. I'm not all that keen on the extra elongated skinny style, but his color rendoring is exceptional. I'd have to be drugged to have the patience to be that precice.
