Updating my site as a way to loop back around to having an art practice outside of being obsessed with electronic music gear. I’ve been watching lots of movies on STARZ which may be a good north star.

a brooklyn-based publisher who is into doing the same thing over and over again until it goes from being boring to being funny to being pathetic to being funny again? maybe? — Used to be really obsessed with drawing and the internet now is just hyped on the internet […] Still draw sometimes, but more and more is getting into like “one-liner” or “?far-side?” art; don’t know where that will lead- also into being a painter sometimes wishes he could make big sculpture again.

think via materials
don’t try to be clever
distrust what comes easily
plan for the possibility that your work will be damaged/lost/sold/given away
a work is finished what you can talk clearly about it
