Very briefly, I love my sport almost as much as I love making art, and the intersection where they collide is kind of magical for me.
Below you can see the progression of jiu jitsu belts from day 1 as a white belt (so… so unaware) to the vastness of growing knowledge represented by the black belt. There’s blood, sweat, tears, more sweat… lots and lots and lots of sweaty love.
I created this for a training partner firmly in the brown belt stretch. He is incredible at what he does on the mats, and he’s also an amazing dad, doctor and medical professional. It’s a reminder to me that we are are riding a spectrum in every endeavor we undertake. Progress!
