Boyz In The Hood


24″ x 16″ Handsewn Felt Applique

I would write all night into the morning, sleep, and wobble my way through a couple of classes. I didn’t have the money for everything, so I had to use the public computers at school to write. I sat two feet away from people writing their term papers, and I would stand up periodically and walk around and say, “I’m writing the f—ing best screenplay of my life.” People were looking at me like I was crazy. I was so obsessed with what I was writing.
