Have The Courage To Be Disliked Sticker by Cat Rocketship
"Have The Courage To Be Disliked"
This is a 2.75" vinyl sticker made from a drawing by Cat Rocketship of Des Moines, Iowa.
"I don't know where I heard this sentence. I know there is a book by Ichiro Kishimi, but I have not read it. It sounds like something Brené Brown has said, but I don't want to steal thunder from Kishimi. Whoever said it, it made me think of a vulture. A vulture ain't pretty. But they are themselves. And when I need to do a hard thing, I think of the vulture, who is the way they are because that's who they need to be. They have a bald head so guts can't stick to their feathers. And they get the job done. Who can be mad at that? It takes such incredible courage to be disliked. Keep the courage."
"A lot of my work is highly graphic, uses bold lines and colors, and I love to use skeletons to remind humans how we are connected to other-than-human beings."
"I work with multiple mediums: digital illustration, traditional drawing and watercolor, and creating interior and exterior murals with acrylic, latex, and spray paint. I focus on stickers, prints, and murals in order to make work that is affordable and accessible to lots and lots of people."
