Sometimes you just got to stop and think about how awesome Al Green is. In all likelihood, God sent Al Green to this world to tell the rest of us not to stop stressing out and start loving each other 'cuz everything is gonna be just smoooooth. I mean, he's pretty much the human incarnation of suavity and romance. Right? Earlier this year I made a series of construction paper portraits with the hopes of selling them for $10 a pop and making a quick fortune. I'd hawk them on eBay or Etsy or what-have-you and settle into retirement at the ripe old age of twenty-three. But after I made this portrait of Al Green, I looked down into his squinting eyes and realized, this isn't what Al Green would want me to do. He wouldn't want me to be making money. He'd want me to be making love.
So thanks Al Green. For helping me get my life together. I hope you're doing well.
