*taps mic* Is this thing on?
After four years of blogging on Blogger, and then moving over to Tumblr for four years, I decided to come back to Blogger as a space solely for projects in process and my own writings. It's clean. It's quiet. It's a starting over, of sorts.
I liken it to coming back to a library to sit, research, and be still after a few years of partying with the art and theater kids in their crowded, smoky lofts. I'll still be over there though. It's good to diversify. But it's also good to break apart from the noise.
The above photos are outtakes from a portrait series I've been working on for a group show opening next month. I'm actually really excited with how the series as a whole has been turning out. I am always nervous before a show opens but more than anything I'm just excited to be creating. And the work always takes on another dimension when presenting it to the public, when people can engage with it up close and personal, rather than on a screen alone.
