These past two years have been interesting — not for anyone following me on social media, but in real life — and I’ve noticed it hasn’t shown much through my creative outlets: this blog, my twitter, instagram, and portfolio. Specifically, the past two years have been interesting for my personal growth, perspective on life, and struggle with where I want to be. I’ll admit I’ve been very aloof because of a mixture of things: I want to be perceived as elusive, I am scared to publish my work, and I want to be awesome. I know, all three of those things contradict each other in some form or another. Today, it stops.
I’ve been slowly working on a new book for 2014. Let me tell you a bit about it. I’m exploring my inadequacies with being an artist, comparing myself to others, my struggles with my relationship with my girlfriend, social expectations of my career and personas, and how to reconcile all of these things in a neat and organized manner.
I want to share these things with you throughout the upcoming new year. I want you to write about how you like or dislike my work— or whatever feeling I provoke (though I’m most scared that it provokes nothing from you as the viewer) — and build me up or down as I complete this new book.
Thanks to all of you who have decided to follow me. You’ll see more of my experiments and writings on your dashboard soon enough.
That being said, I have no idea what I’m doing.
