Being open-minded is usually a good thing. But I take it to the next level. My philosophy in life is: never stand too firmly behind an opinion because you will be proven wrong and then you’ll look like a total ass. Basically, no opinions are ever right, so why have any? I once spent five minutes in Walgreens staring at a jar of pickles in my hand and debating whether or not I should buy it. I can’t make up my mind about anything. In my entire life, I have never been sure about anything except one thing:
An artist’s greatest fear is living in a cardboard box in some dark alleyway and getting stabbed to death by Patrick Bateman. Or at least, that’s my greatest fear. To make sure that never happens, I’ve decided to take an active hand in getting my artwork out there in any way possible. This includes selling my soul to the interwebs.
The internet is a scary place. It is to me what Mirkwood was to Biblo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and his company of dwarves. How frightened they must have been, traversing that dark abyss… On top of this Tumblr, I already have a Facebook, Youtube, LinkedIn, and (as of yesterday) a Blogger. Every new online persona is a new mask I must don, each avatar a new child I must care for. How deep can I go before I lose myself in the sea of fake me’s? Only time will tell.
As of now, however, my primary concern is getting my work noticed. This blog is not meant to be a formal portfolio (I have yet another website for that). It’s more like a mental dumpster of sorts, a place where I can post thoughts, ideas, sketches, and whatever cool stuff I find that inspires me.
Busy with finals lately, so I haven’t been able to put up any artwork. But I’m finally done and I have a whole month before I have to go back to school, so expect some new content in the near future. In the meantime, I’m gonna keep posting old stuff that I’ve done. Enjoy.
Just spent hours browsing through the thousands of Tumblr themes. The theme really doesn’t matter at all. What matters is the content of the blog. In reality, I just wanted to kill some time on the internet, as always. Expect some artwork in the near future.
