Anonymous asked: Do you have a picture of the self portrait that you gave shia? Thank you for sharing the experience!
Yes, you can see it here: http://canvasopera.blogspot.com/2009/12/save-me.html It’s very hard for me to give away any piece of art I do, and I have absolutely no foundation to reason why I decided to gift him such a personal piece, but it seemed right to me. I felt like he would take care of it.
Anonymous asked: Please be honest, what do you think is going on with Shia? :(
Honestly, I don’t know what is going on. I don’t think many actually do. I think, as a whole, a lot of us forget that we are not limited in freedom the way that celebrities are. The luxury of being able to say whatever we want or do whatever we like without regard for who hears/sees it is something we take for granted. When someone’s words and actions are constantly being monitored & then when a backlash hits because of them doing something out of what is expected of them.. it can affect pretty harshly. Everyone, media and public alike, need to act decently, regardless of what the situation is or how the person of circumstance is acting. I suppose only time will tell.

Anonymous asked: Thank you for describing your experience with Shia, and thank you for being such a good person. It brought tears to my eyes and I wish I lived closer so I could tell him he isn't alone and that everything's going to be okay. I can't pretend to know what it's like to be a celebrity but I can imagine being in the limelight all the time is incredibly hard and damaging.
I am so flattered by your kind words & appreciate them greatly, thank you. I’m glad the story connected to you, too, and you’re right about celebrities. I think a lot of people forget that they’re humans, just like us regular folk, at the end of the day.
