As a creator, whenever I am in the presence of other creatives I always find myself digging into my bag of go to questions. What do you do? What are you working on? How do you do it? What are you into right now?… etc.
Now with the internet I don’t have to randomly stumble upon these awesome people at get togethers, meet ups, and conferences. Instead I can scour social media and pick from people I am genuinely interested in, from all corners of the globe. If I am going to do that then I might as well share my findings with everyone. This kind of short form questionnaire is a great quick look into the lives of other creative people and allows for repeat visits.

There comes a point where every designer types there portfolio website URL into the address bar at the top of the browser window and hits enter on the keyboard. After that key has been pressed you dread what loads on the screen in front of you. This feeling has been building since the day you launched the site 3 months ago. It’s crap.
I got over that feeling a while ago. Not saying that it is gone but just coming to grips with the fact that I can’t possibly keep up with my minds own need for consistent change. One way of coping with this looming feeling was to boot up a blog. My past attempts at a blog have been lackluster at best, what I have only begun to realize as lack of direction and focus.
Now, take that with a grain of salt. This blog will definitely be a bit scatter brain cause that is just how my mind rolls and to combat that would be foolish. The direction and focus will be on furthering myself as an artist by “writing” about what inspires me, showing my process work, possibly talking to other creators and whatever else I find myself getting into.
Bare with me as I stumble through this creative experiment. Hopefully you will find some nuggets to help you just like some many other creators blogs have helped me in the past.
