brother

Okay guys, I need your help - my brother, Will, is 10 years old and he LOVES to draw. However, one day, he just quit drawing. He said he didn’t know what to draw anymore.

So tonight, he told me that people on his YouTube channel were mean to him, and said that he should quit drawing and that he sucked at drawing.

I had no idea people were saying these kinds of things to him - and it really pisses me off that there are people out there who get off on discouraging at 10 year old from doing his passion.

He wanted to become an artist for a really long time, but recently stopping talking about it. I should have seen the signs, and asked what’s up. I feel awful now.

I think Will is REALLY good at drawing - here is one of the drawings of the Endoskeleton from Five Night’s at Freddy’s. He didn’t trace it, it’s all free-hand.

But Will thinks that no one likes his drawings, so he quit, even though I told him a lot of people who DO like his drawings - he doesn’t believe me.

PLEASE, if you guys could comment some encouraging words. Every reblog this gets, every comment - I will show him and maybe that will inspire him to draw again!!

Thanks guys!

Tagging some people, just to get his drawing out:

I don’t know who else to tag - but if you see this PLEASE reblog it. Get the word out that my little brother is a GOOD artist, and if he keeps trying - he’ll become great!

This is my little brother - Will, the artist. He is 10 and I am 20, but we have a wonderful relationship. I treat him like he’s my child, because I played a BIG part in raising him. My dad works a lot, and always has, so growing up - when my mom wasn’t watching Will, I was.

We’ve grown our relationship into something beautiful over the years, and seeing him upset breaks my heart. I love him to death, and I would do ANYTHING for him.

Also pictured in the one photo is our cousin Kristianna - whom I also consider one of my own. Kristianna and Will are the same age, so it’s almost like I have twins.

I was always watching them, and playing with them while they were babies. They are both wonderful people, and I can’t wait to see the awesome adults they will become one day.

Brother - NEEDTOBREATHE

This song has been such a comfort as of late. It reminds me I can ask for help. It reminds me that I can’t do life alone. 

“Face down in the desert now there’s a cage locked around my heart
I found a way to drop the keys where my failures were
Now my hands can’t reach that far
I ain’t made for a rivalry I could never take the world alone
I know that in my weakness I am strong, but
It’s your love that brings me home”

I need God. I need others. I need help. And it’s there, completely available to me and within my reach. I just need to grasp it. That’s exactly what I’ve been doing lately. I’m not even talking about praying more, because I have been praying so much more, but I’ve also learned that there are so many others invested in my life. There are so many others who want to see me succeed. I’m not alone in this. I can promise you that you aren’t either.

“Brother let me be your shelter
I’ll never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
And when you call and need me near
Sayin’ where’d you go?
Brother, I’m right here
And on those days when the sky begins to fall
You’re the blood of my blood
We can get through it all”

Know how I know that you aren’t alone in this? Because I’m right here. To all of my fellow brothers, sisters, and siblings in Christ, I’m here for you. I will do my best to let you know that you are loved. I will do my best to show you that you aren’t broken. Don’t forget that God’s always there too. Even when you don’t feel Him, He is there. He loves you. You are not alone.

To lose a brother is to lose someone with whom you can share the experience of growing old, who is supposed to bring you a sister-in-law and nieces and nephews, creatures who people the tree of your life and give it new branches. To lose your father is to lose the one whose guidance and help you seek, who supports you like a tree trunk supports its branches. To lose your mother, well, that is like losing the sun above you. It is like losing - I’m sorry, I would rather not go on.

150825 Brother: “Prioritized casting Jo Jungseok and Do Kyungsoo”

Actor Jo Jungseok and EXO member-turned-actor Do Kyungsoo will be working together for the big screen.

On the 25th, CJ Entertainment revealed, “Jo Jungseok and Do Kyungsoo are confirmed for the film Brother (working title), which is about brothers under unusual circumstances.”

In the film Brother, the brazen conman older brother (Jo Jungseok) who spent fifteen years away from home reappears without notice to the successful judo player younger brother (Do Kyungsoo). Their story is one of separation from an unwillingness to live together.

For Brother, director Kwon Sookyung of Barefoot Kibong and writer Yoo Youngah of Miracles in Cell No. 7, who made the nation laugh and cry, will put their minds together.

In it, Jo Jungseok will play the shameless older brother who successfully wins parole after being imprisoned for fraud by using his younger brother. Jo Jungseok established his presence in the films The Face Reader, Architecture 101, and My Love, My Bride, and with his latest drama, Oh My Ghostess, he demonstrates his diverse ability.

Jo Jungseok says, “I think every actor yearns to be a part of something good. So I readily picked this project, and I think it will be a charming, very human story that everyone can sympathize with. I’m already looking forward to it. We will greet you well, so we entrust you with a lot of interest.”

Do Kyungsoo will play the younger Dooyoung, a successful judo player whose life snags one morning before a national competition due to an unfair accident. Do Kyungsoo of the nation’s top idol group EXO revealed striking acting through the drama IOIL and the film Cart, and it seems he will take yet another step in his maturing acting.

Do Kyungsoo resolved, “Because this is a role I’ve never been able to try before, it makes me wish to do well even more. I read the scenario all at once and I got so nervous and expectant and excited that I couldn’t fall asleep. I will commit myself to acting without forgetting that feeling.”

Director Kwon Sookyung said, “It’s great luck that we could cast the two men we prioritized and the feeling is extraordinary. With this piece, we want to portray a fundamentally human story. Through the relationship of these two brothers who hurt and heal each other, we wish to look one more time at the meaning of family and be reminded of it. We will do our best to make it good.”

If the film Brother starts filming in October 2015 as planned, then it aims for release next year.
