Every once in a while I get lost in my own thoughts. When this happens I tend to fall into the black hole that is the internet and read a ton of philosophical articles. In recent times, mainly within the last year or so, the question I've had to ask myself is 'what is my purpose'? Now, there are those who don't believe that such a thing exists, but I would disagree. I've done art all my life-changing at least as far back as I can remember, so I had a feeling that if I did have a purpose, art would be a part of expressing it. Sounds simple enough, but this is a concept I've struggled with for a very long time, exacerbated by my personal experiences and pitfalls.

Midsummer Update

Midsummer Update

Welcome back! I hope you all are enjoying your summer. As I type this I am taking what is sure to be a brief but well earned vacation (and the first in maybe 10 years!). I’m going to Washington D.C., this trip with family, but as I have some free time, I think this would be a good opportunity to go over how my summer updates have been going. Let’s get to it!
