Man, some days you don't even know what you want to write about, but even that will mess you up – it's like art – when you force something out, people can usually tell. You need to have something that you're passionate about and just RUN with it. What do y'all think – do you still have any passion left when you get to that quarter life crisis? Yeah, I know – there's people out there who'll tell me that they still have passion and they're twice my age or that I'm spoiled. I'll take those as valid points – but I'm talking about a quarter life crisis in the context of my environment and my time, where oversaturation of media leaves too many of us jaded, skeptical and cynical of just about everything. I feel that one needs to make an active push beyond their boundaries and comfort zone in order to figure out what really matters to them.
I spent much of today just inking work and clearing things up. Let me show you a shot of my working area to give you an idea of whassap.
Yeah, so as you see, I keep myself busy. Mostly work-in-progress pieces, but I've gone back to inking with felt pens and just trying to establish more character in my sketches 🙂 But man – I need to figure out what my passion is – one of the important things to consider when starting one's blog (learned from Jessica Schroeder's What I Wore, who mentions some general tips and kinda knows what she's talking about [just maybe, eh?!]) is to find a community that's interested in the same things that you are. Okay, that's fine and dandy if you have a specific focus on what it is you're interested in. Uh oh. Yeah, that's gonna take a little work. For now, you're getting random collages and montages of what I'm up to, and I hope that'll do for now. I'd like to thank Jon and Simone for talking me through my blog woes earlier today – I'm going to try the au naturel route of blogging for the next bit (don't take that TOO literally – I'm not about to blog naked) and I hope you enjoy what you see. If not, that's still okay – this is more of a self-exercise right now to track how I'm doing, what I'm doing, all that. Let's have fun with this 🙂
