Sick but still alive

Hello everyone. I just want to say a few things… first, what a sorry ass week of posts it’s been here on Joewriteshiswrongs.

I apologize.

I’ve been in a zombie like state all week because of this god for sake influenza or whatever it is I have.

Our housing unit is like the walking dead…a bunch of half lives with no brains, aimlessly staggering around looking like death.

Then again, it looks a lot like that, even when everyone isn’t sick.

Being sick in prison sucks.

It really sucks.

It’s probably equal to being sick in a third world country where medical attention is virtually nonexistent. Find that a little hard to believe..?  Well maybe you never read some of my older post about the medical department of correctional facilities… If you haven’t, I highly recommend you check out “The prison dentist fiasco,” or even more so, “A brain tumor test…Incarcerated.”

They will add a little insight to just what it is I am talking about.

Thanks for the “likes and well wishes” during my time of illness. That really means a lot.

Hopefully, I will get better soon and I will be back to my usual awesome self again.

Enough with all that, though.

All this sick talk has got me sick of sick talk!

In other news the giant mural I have been working on for oh, I don’t know… seems like FOREVER now! Well, that is finally winding on down and approaching its end.

Wait until you see just how awesome this thing is when it’s done.

It’s almost there now and I swear this is probably like a $5000 job in the world! But here in prison, I have been paid .45 cents an hour to create such a piece.

Oh, and by the way, to my good friend Justin Young… I’ve cursed you many of times for leaving me this project…

But seriously, for such an innocent little children’s piece… this thing has been a fucking nightmare.

For those of you who may not know, Justin Young was a mural painter here at the prison also. A great one at that, who was a big part of the reason I was hired as a mural painter myself. He was just recently released and is now home perusing all that he hopes to accomplish.  But before Justin (Well Q as he is more so known) was released, he drew this 20+ foot wide, 8ft tall children’s piece-monstrosity-in the gym. It’s for the kids when they come to visit here at the prison.

I’ve been painting on this project here for over 2 months now. But it is finally almost done. I wish I could show you all just how big this piece is in its entirety. But at the moment, I can’t.

I do however hope to show you the full piece in its entirety by the end of September.

What I can do now, is show you a few pictures I have taken with Jen in front of it, over the course of the last 2 months. Hopefully that will give you an idea of the progression I have made with this piece.  Those pictures will be included here as well.

That’s all for the moment.

Have a great weekend!
