art = love

A thought: Making art only for yourself is a selfish act. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! But if you keep it to yourself, if you never share it with anyone, it’s sort of masturbatory (again, nothing wrong with a little of that)! 😉 Which...
Wrapping the Present

Wrapping the Present

There’s something about the end of the year that gets me thinking about the past, planning for the future and trying to enjoy the present. This year, I collected memories and photos from the past 12 months and made a Christmas letter, harkening back to the...
