Marian Call Shares Her Art

It is hard for me to explain the emotions I am feeling right now. There are a lot of things in this world which send my thought process spinning off into an orbit of pain and dread. I want to believe somehow, someway, humanity will pull its collective head out of its collective ass and […]
