Believe in Yourself

Believe in Yourself

This started innocently: a group of friends, a Friday night and one of our mutual favourite activities, watching a film! Our hearts were set on a film which at least promised to be interesting, The Wiz.

I remember learning about The Wiz when I read a comic book version of a biography of Michael Jackson (when I was probably about 9 or 10). And recently, in an innocent charity shop, I found the DVD of this legendary film. I was blown away by the cover and even more by the cast: Michael looks like a disturbing rag doll, Diana Ross as Dorothy, Richard Pryor as Oz and Lena Horne as Glinda… Lena Horne! This was so unpredictably strange, I wondered why I never tried to watch it before… When I told the others, we all got so excited!

And then we started…

This unforgettable experience had to somehow be documented. This is a pencil drawing including glitters and even some blood of the artist. Pencils remind me of colouring times before I could even read.

the whole song, only for the brave!

Warning! The following video might make you sick.

The Lost Lil’ Gal

At the edge of the forest, innocence embarks on a journey which will transform her into a force of nature…
But she doesn’t know it yet.

“Let go of the hand that led you, lose yourself on the obscure paths of truth.”

From the R.F Bernard collection

Birdy Bird

Birdy bird on the cherry tree.
Birdy bird please sing to me!
Birdy bird a song of sweet melancholy.

The bird on the cherry tree branch was a deep meditation on what it means to be at peace…
