My cv is almost written. I sincerely wish that after art school I didn't fall off the planet in a series of minimum wage jobs, as there is a huge gap in my cv and it is almost impossible to find all the information from 3-7 years ago of exhibitions and publications I've been in. But alas, now I am motivated and poring over e-mails from half a decade ago. That was the point of moving to Ontario in the first place.
I also started a painting last night, on a nice 2.5' x 3' canvas, and it is one of the first paintings where the preliminary drawing on the canvas clicked and then I had to pick a paintbrush up immediately. I'm really excited about this one.
I also wanted to share this article by John Cheese, my favorite writer at cracked.com called 9 youtube videos that prove anyone can get sober. Mind you I am not addicted to anything (well except smoking, but that's more a lifestyle right? Hah.) But I think this was inspiring more in the sense for me as someone working a crappy job with a dream of making money doing something creative that I love.
After quitting drinking he leaves the crappy job he worked for 14 years and ends up becoming a comedy writer and making way more money at it than this other job. And this is something I've done for a few years, sit around and feel sorry for myself knowing I CAN be an artist, but not doing it. So now, ladies and gentleman, after a series of moves, courageous changes and the like I am getting off my sorry ass and getting out the door and no one is going to stop me. If you want any motivation for anything, check out those videos.
Anyways, off to work I am. More updates to come!
