So much of all I do is mixed in with the culture of my surroundings. My neighborhood on the right day is so flavorful. The food smells are almost sexy. There is this food truck across the street from my studio and a Bodega next door. The languages dance across the streets at stop lights. I love how kind everyone is. It has this 8...

There are those moments when you feel like you are in a David Bowie lyric.

Like if you were watching an Indie movie in a movie montage.

I started a secret tumblr page with unseen sketches for my Patreon page.

super busy week.

Great things but super sleepy.

So in my family, the men either have thick hair or no hair. My hair inspired my niece to dread her hair and my nephew to grow a long mohawk at 5 years old. I feel honored.

This is how I felt when I was their age.

I have been pulling out a bunch of old records like and I feel inspired...

For YOUR sanity, I think it's great that YOU know when you are through with something and then move on.  It would be incredibly unfortunate to succumb to the comfort of staying with a subject or style that you have tired of.  A clay artist in my community was very popular for his glazed clay steam engine trains.  They are wonderful (I have one. Of the 80 or 90 pieces of art in my home, it is one of my favorites and it will always be out on display.).  They were his most successful work and also became his most frustrating legacy.  He kept trying to move on to other subjects and techniques but commissions (as in the money to pay bills) were almost always requests for more trains.  His most well known work was, for him, a mixture of love, pride and regret.

@glass42 Thank you, fo always seeing passed my panic. These last few shows have put me a little on edge. I didn't realise how much until this afternoon with my wife. I made a bunch of mixtape prints and cut my hand cutting them with this paper chopping blade and didn't even react. I'm fine but I don't even feel it. Part of me is shut off from it in the midst of making. I remember in art school we would always call it "going full Van Gogh/ Jackson Pollock." It feels silly to fear the idea that one day I will make something so good it will haunt me and yet I do. I don't feel too humble to admit that. I will get lost in making for hours and waking up sort of from it to go to bed and start over the next day. I want that feeling of being completely wrung out by it. I never feel like I'm making enough when I see my heroes make thing while I sleep. I'm not sure how to attack the situation. 

I made another mix tape for you all.

@miiel :) I hope every one will too.  Thank you

So I'm back to one video a week and I feel like I was in over my head filming. I wasn't making at my speed. I am again and I feel so much more energized.

I'm always envious of the gorgeous story telling of @radeo and @bully . They have these flowing songs of blogging. I just don't know I have that much to share because I share so often.

I wish we could (Alec and I) sell this place and move West now but we have to wait a few years.

I'm think this year I'm
