Got inspired by some early Basquiat I saw at the University of Michigan- Ann Arbor art museum. Shit was just so simple. Im tryna do my thing with patterns and colors right now. I also feel like tools could become a subject of mine, what with all the importance of “http://www.areyoumyother.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/IMAG0269-800x478.jpg” Max and I believe in. These aren’t finished works, just ideas I wanted to share. Here I am. Giving you an open book into my process. Giving you my unfinished works, and in a way revealing myself to you. Look, this stuff happens one step at a time. Now, share yourself with me, brother.
on the image below: just a small thought that there is not enough legitimate tracking or reporting of small progress in our world. of course, there would be no reason to create widespread conversation about everything that any one person does, but it could be effective and important to be conscious of the ways in which we communicate small, more personal landmarks of progress. i think that it is important to create things and share them effectively. if we only depend on the systems of sharing and reporting that are currently in place, we will not likely find happiness in the steps taken toward improvement on a personal level. whether it is a creative outlet, an academic endeavor, or a social question you seek to communicate, form your own versions of ‘news’ and share them, sometimes selectively and sometimes blindly.
Just trying to get better at graphic design and my eye for choosing colors. For whatever reason I find myself designing a lot of animals. Particularly birds. Think I’m going to start making multiple variations of one subject or idea. Trying to push myself.
