Inspiration For The Nine-year-old
I took the kid to school today, peeking inside his locker, wondering what items or images of inspiration he held dear.
The above was taped in a prominent place. I like that he puts emphasis on keeping calm, or at least feels that zambie (this is not a typo, rather belief that the zombie apocalypse will occur only in the American South) killing is best done with a relaxed mind and bearing.
This reminded me of BFTSM, who takes inspiration from a mashup of dramatic lines from the 1992 film "Last of the Mohicians." The actual lines are: "No, you submit, do you hear? You be strong, you survive... You stay alive, no matter what occurs! I will find you. No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you."
I can't say that I have a similar catchphrase or artwork that I turn to for inspiration -- feel free to make a suggestion. The closest thing would be my current signature graphic, which is, indeed, epic.
