"I’m off to save the world but I don’t know what that entails; will my hands get dirty, why should I risk myself? My father told me before the day he died: ‘You may get dirty but you can’t live in apathy—cause hope is a beautiful thing.’"
I could save the world
I could cure cancer
I could do homework
But I think I’ll just sleep
Created a poster today, titled “Feed the World.” It was inspired by Swedish House Mafia and their song, “Save the World.” Their three members (Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso) are often represented by three dots.
I wanted to avoid having to pay for stock images so I drew the fruits’ cross-sections in Illustrator. Full size is 24”x36” (might want to print a poster and hang it up in my room).
Hope you enjoy!
I think it’s wonderful to save the world, but you need to be part of the world, too.

A friend let me do this. It’s so simple and I suck at editing. Someone teach me, please. :(
What probably makes me the saddest is that I cannot save the world. One little act of kindness to save the entire population from cruelty does nothing. And it will never do anything. We can kid ourselves into thinking we might be able to help, but really, what is one person going to do?…
when I was little I wanted to save the world.
silly aspirations of heroism and bravery.
they seemed so simple in my mind or paper
but with reality on me it feels like slavery.
now I have a new dream.
smaller in comparison sure
but in my mind it is more emense
then being the worlds savior.
my passion now
lies in seeing a smile.
it is setting my family free
from the debt that churns stomach bile.
I still want to save the whole world,
but right now I will settle for saving mine.
