Or maybe it is too early. I've been on a weird hiatus from making work. I've been thinking a ton, working on some illustration projects, taking some drives, hanging out with some friends. The idea that everything that I have ever needed to be more successful was really in my depiction of my present state had never really occurred to me, but as I was sitting with my friend Ben tonight, I realized that that was where my only downfall had ever been really evident. Persistence and work will pay off, but the attitude in which you communicate that work to other people, the attitude with which you approach the inevitable pitfalls and tribulations will be read into. They will strike a greater chord than some of your positivity, because unfortunately everybody knows negativity and has a quiet, defined box in which to store it. Negativity is easily dealt with, even if dealing with it is merely to ignore it. Positivity is a difference in perception, sure, but also a difference in understanding and communication. More to come later....
now, here are a couple projects that I have been working on while I
have been mistakenly telling people that I am not working that hard. I
have been working. Hard.
