What We Knew When We Were Small
Toy Stories: We all remember playing with our favorite toys and creating stories from them.
Sometimes we were the hero, sometimes the villain.
"In a castle high on top of a hill lives an inventor's greatest creation - Edward, a near-complete person."
2013: I originally did this one for my last art show but decided it wasn't good enough to
include. I used some of the little Kam characters that I have drawn in previous drawings

I am not only physically tied to HIBM on a full time basis while learning to cope with the
constant progression, but the pressure of being public, fundraising, sharing, advocacy and
constantly talking about HIBM in order to raise awareness looms over me.
I feel responsibility and accountability on my shoulders even though I would rather

people did not know me for my HIBM.
It is an inner tension and personal struggle between what I want and what is deeply a part

something I so deeply hate or the subject of a drawing is often times unbearable and

intended to live life to the fullest - and the Kam that has HIBM.
They are very different characters, yet the same.

I am being pulled in by the waves of the inevitable, and my next (major) milestone is drawing nearer.
Sometimes it makes me sad but I have to maintain balance, not only with my physical shell but on the inside.
"It is something that grows over time...A feeling in the heart that becomes stronger even stronger over time.
The passion will soon blossom into a righteous power and through it, you will know which way to go"
