Last week, Donald Trump came to my state shortly after I took a survey asking if I wanted him to come here. I clicked ‘Yes’. I didn’t think he’d listen. And I doubt I was the only one who took the e-mail survey from Trump’s campaign staff. He probably didn’t listen personally TO me. Who he listened to was probably a huge amount of people. But I don’t care. I want to thank him for making the effort, anyway. So I drew him a picture that I think represents who he is.
For you, my reader, I want to tell the steps on how I drew it so you can learn about my art. First, I drew a sketch from a variety of Trump pictures I found online. Using just 1 isn’t my style; I cross-reference up to 20 pictures to draw my own. I sketched the portrait on a blank piece of paper with an ordinary mechanical pencil. Then it was scanned in, outlined digitally, and shaded with an airbrush tool. At last, it was time for Kat to have it, making it look gorgeous with colors and polished lines.
Mr. Trump spoke about ending violence, political favoritism, and crime. It wasn’t the best speech I’ve ever heard him say, however, two actions he did said a lot about how he cares: he let the women of The Remembrance Project speak out on stage about their tragedies, and he let the border patrol men have a chance to say how dangerous the situation is, specifically down on the southern United States border. The danger of drugs is everywhere because there’s a major distribution center in Central Texas, selling illegal heroine nationwide. Seriously, search “The Remembrance Project”. You won’t be disappointed at the humanity you find on their website. Maria Espinoza is the Co-Founder of the project set on bringing justice to families who had loved ones tortured, raped, and murdered by criminals. It’s wrong they have to wait for fair trials, when all they’re asking for is justice and order, so violence can be stopped.
Back to Donald J. Trump, he is more than just a candidate for USA’s President. He’s a mentor to me as I watch his campaign. He may not know it, but I notice his personality to find out what kind of man (or woman) you have to be to make money in the industry of business. I’ll admit I’ve not been good at making money. That’s bad considering my goals. But now, for the first time, my self-esteem is going up thanks to Mr. Trump. I’m a patriot again.
Donald Trump may not be popular for these facts, but he defends the rights of the voiceless, promises liberty to citizens, and loves the country enough to fight for it in his own unique way. Of course, what he’s QUITE infamous for is the flaws: rambunctiousness, big talk, and bragging about himself. Ok… Let’s get real, though. Let’s get down and dirty. Nitty-gritty. Who is flawless? Who doesn’t make mistakes? Who tames his tongue 100% of the time? How would anyone act if the reporters and cameramen cut and edited one’s words out of context? Haven’t I gotten into a heated argument once or twice? (If you know me, you’ll know, yes, I have. Maybe you know how I feel?) Donald J. Trump is human and he’s not been a politician. We also need to take note that in business, bragging wins. Bragging is the strategy to get people to look at you and your products, whether to scrutinize or out of interest, and you WIN if you have what it takes to impress them. Because when BRAGGING is validated by SUCCESS, suddenly, that’s now considered BRAGGING RIGHTS. You go from BIG EGO to BIG GAME. That’s who Mr. Trump is. He’s a big game player. As the old saying goes: “Money talks”. He wants to make the American dream possible again by dealing with the national deficit and allowing cash flow to return to the USA and back into the American people’s pockets so they can start succeeding once again, and immigrants can start coming into a country worthy of their dreams.
