CMYK. No. Way.

Apparently it's a good idea to enter a magazine's call for entries.

Yours truly earned a spot in an upcoming issue of CMYK.
Somewheres in its pages you'll find this...

P.S. Thank you Mr. Jeffrey Nolan for lending me your face.

It's the weirdest thing to achieve something like this. I kinda thought about it in the same sense that i think about kids. Someday...way down the road. Haha.
Totally exciting. (The magazine, not the kid thing.)
Keep your eyes on the magazine racks folks.

Progress soon.

Hera + Akut = Herakut

Meet Hera:

And Akut:

An amazing boy/girl German collaborative graffiti team.
Check out an interview with them here.
And their website.
<3 <3 <3 them and the idea that two people can come together and create. Just. create. Each one as necessary as the other. Complementary. If you will.
I want to try something like this S-O-O-N.
Anyone willing to step up?

2008? Whoa.

When I was younger, 2008 seemed so far away - considering, that in this upcoming year, (god-willing) I'll finally be a college graduate. I've realized, I have a lot to do before becoming a full fledged grown up. I've always thought new year's resolutions were silly and far too overwhelming.
Therefore. I've decided to trick myself, take baby steps, and throw together a to do list.

1. Partake in as many adrenaline inducing, health risking, down right dangerous activities as possible before my health insurance lapses.
2. Really (really) learn to live without cable television.
3. Rid myself completely of my fear of sketchbooks.
4. Learn the importance of cleaning brushes.
5. Enjoy every last second of my time at CCS and what it has left to offer me.
6. Subject myself to some gut-wrenching collaborative work.
7. Convince myself that a 9 a.m. screenprinting class is far more important to me than sleeping in.
8. Refresh my memory as to what morning even looks like.
9. Do more life-drawing. Christian Slade kicked my ass.
10. Get real studio space, (no more dining room painting for me), with a person or two who are capable of an amazingly symbiotic creative relationship.

Wish me luck.
