“You do what they instructed you to do. You be what they expect you to be.

The whole thing is staged. Questions are pointless.”

Fakeland Rhapsody is about a life without question. A life where you pretend to do what they are told to tell you to do. Not because you are forced to.

But because you don't know you can think.

“Those who can give you life’s important lesson won’t be the one living in heaven. They will be the one living in hell.”

"You can do it!" by Pruch Sintunava

Never get what those feel good positive books says along those line “You have to tell yourself you can do this. Tell yourself every morning.” Stuff like that.

Now, really. Sorry to be that guy, but if you have to tell yourself that, you probably can’t do it. Whatever it is.

Courage is how you are being able to move forward in total darkness with your heart crippling in fear legs shaking to bones.

Your determination is determined by how much you are willing to sacrifice to go further. You know the price and accept it.

It’s more about “it’s okay if I fall or die trying” than setting up for an impossible bullshitting yourself you can do it over and over, then fail and hurt later looking like an idiot.

And seriously, who does that anyway? Who wakes up saying “I can do it!” Every morning? That’s just weird and creepy. Just tell yourself to go get a coffee, sheesh...

Sadness by Pruch Sintunava

I’m not sure why would you value sadness. I don’t. Sadness is an attention whore. It demands your full attention but gives nothing in return. My life is shit and my art is sad as you can see. But that’s about it. It’s just a part of life. I paint to get some of it off my chest, and you look at it so you might be able to feel the pain.

But I don’t polarize it. I don’t glorify it. Don’t do it. Don’t side with it. Sadness is beautiful and it knows. It will seduce you to stay while you try to move on. It will do nothing but slow you down and cloud your judgement. It will pretend it’s here for you, while crying like a baby when you turn your eyes away.

Sadness is just an ungrateful bitch that doesn’t deserve you. But you keep it around anyway, because you’re a nice human being that can accept it for what it is.

I missed you Laura by Pruch Sintunava

Found this kid. From my sketchbook 5 or 6 years ago. When I was bored out of my ass in my office job, I’d grab a brush and draw whatever I want away.

Funny thing is I don’t do that anymore. Because I dedicate all my time making art now. Everything has to has purpose and professionally represented. But I sometimes miss drawing silly things without caring a damn.

Is this irony? Never nail this word down properly. Hope I did it right this time.
