a traves de mi.

Uncategorized

I used to write a lot of stuff in Spanish… poetry mostly; there was a time that was the only way I felt safe connecting with that part of me; in private – in notebooks. I found something late last year that while unpacking a box from my childhood home. It was a draft of something I never really finished, but it somehow survived my creativity destructive phase in college. It tore me to pieces […]

SxSW: What to put in my bag?

Uncategorized

Here are some things I’m putting in my “Carry around” bag: A Big Bottle of Water – this is technically a no-no. You’ll need it to avoid insane convention center refreshment monopoly surcharges, though. Trail mix or other keep-me-going medicine (see above) Gum / Mints / sucking candy (since you’ll be talking to so many people, your throat is going to get sore, right?) Cell Phone w/ my # on speed dial: (512.275.6202) Notepad / […]

Blog updating like mad

Uncategorized

I spent the whole day doing blog updating. I’m kind of getting excited w/ the way it’s turning out. In particular, I like the /archives page. The homepage is pretty slick, too. You can follow along with the progress here The big thing I’m working on right now is fixing up all the old content to get weird of odd formatting and severely broken links. Also trying to categorize old nodes. When I get to […]

Early Drawing

Uncategorized

I just posted a set of drawings I made a while ago as I was really starting to find my stride. I always enjoy the messy, charcoal life drawings… it was always a process of the art kind of “emerging” from the muck. It became a lot less about drawing exactly what I saw and more like drawing what I felt I saw. Which, incidentally, actually makes me a TERRIBLE sketcher and is severely limiting […]

Much better

Aside

Man. What a difference a full night of sleep makes (I didn’t set the alarm and I woke up about 8 and a half hours later… ahhhh…) Icing on the cake: giving myself a VERY GOOD shave (i.e. no blood, not feeling like my face is on fire when I am done… just smooth and clean. ahhhh…) Now it’s time to take on the world. Oh wait. That’s what got me in trouble in the […]
