Fingers uncrossed. I didn’t get it. 

It’s alright. Something tells me that a better option is already in the works. 

I like going to the studio space and like that I’m going to be staying there. I’ve been comparing myself to a chameleon and I think that it makes sense. A shape-shifter is probably more what I prefer to call myself. A person can wear many hats, metaphorically and literally.

 Writing should be honest because it’s a chance to connect in a way that images aren’t able to.

I must keep this short because my head is full of fuck today and I am prone to write on about nothing and everything and that would not be good.  

Give me the new RDJ album and give me the fall. My focus is already headed there.

The workload is increasing. I’ve been listening to dubstep. It just sounds like power music and it’s helpful to listen to when producing work. Music plays an important part in my headspace, which is my most valuable asset. I need the music to keep my mind in the right state of mind. I rely on it for inspiration and as a tool.

On the Max Line today, I looked out the window at all of the people on the sidewalk downtown. The morning light was beaming through the buildings and on the street. It has a golden haze to it and everyone looked so beautiful. In the lense of morning light, everyone was equal. Suits, blue collar, no collar, all types of people—-all on the same human level. We are all just beings starting a new day and preparing ourselves for what is to come. Morning means that all is forgiven and it is new again. 

What, me worry?

Fingers crossed.

Probably will find out this week? 

I purchased a larger-than-average sketchbook a month ago and now it is what I prefer. The space is more for your hand/mind to roam and get lost in ideas. On a tiny sketch pad, there are more limitations which can be good for a lot of people. It’s just fun to let my hand roam free and draw whatever it wants to. Sketches can sometimes be more interesting than a well produced illustration. They both sort of inform each other though. 

Going back and forth between mediums and styles is a good way for me to work because I like to explore. I think that is just part of my personality and it can come through in my work. I get obsessed with an idea and I will see how long I can ride that style. I like beginnings more than middles or ends. Beginnings are exciting because they happen all the time. Every day is a beginning and I work the best in the morning. I like the freshness of a beginning. It’s inspiring.
