I miss this place. I feel dumbed down for not writing as much as I used to. At least publicly, I mean.
I'm leaving this phase of making visual art since I am getting burned out from it. I can't make a drawing or painting lately to save my life. I actually don't even enjoy it much even. I guess that the whole One Thousand Thousand project killed off some imspiration in the same way that working for Barnes & Noble years and years ago ruined me for reading fiction until just recently.
The gallery opening is on the 19th and after that I'm writing again.

i go through internet/creative phases and am so damn fickle, it's really surprising that i've stuck with lj for so long. it must be the slightly random give-and-take interaction that's lacking (for me) in most other communications and creativ...ities
good to see you posting though, i dont think i've ever introduced myself- i'm alex, and you were on a couple of my old lj friend lists. i think faster_pussycat
but i'm not sure.
good luck w/ the gallery.
whatever you make is beautiful, no matter how long you cook it for.
In my head I'm making out with you right now. You're my pretend girlfriend that I have never even met before. [I love you for being so incredibly cool.]
I totally understand this the other day i was like why dont I just make jewelry instead.. The last evening i did disrupted me and clouded my mind of what I saw it not being. a new kind of failure that wasnt failure.
I am sinking in quiksand of titles for next evenings and eager oh so eager for conversations and community and collaboration. Blunt objects and jazz funerals.
Yet I need deadlines so i dont meandering in the abyss of process and the illusion that people will fins me and want me to be a part of their physical arts.
I'm doing fine, I actually made a silicone mold on another try. And Ice Cream Truck season starts up really soon and I'm very excited for it.
That sucks about the paintings, last year when we drove the ice cream truck it was really fun until Subway cut back our hours and we had to rely on selling ice cream for money, that's when you start getting frustrated and the beauty of selling ice cream and making kids happy is lost.
Thanks for checking in, your journal is a good read.

Hey, where can I see your images? I'm going the other way, getting tired of designing necklaces and wanting to get out my brushes and oils to see what comes out of my head. I'm not writing much, even in my paper journal, but have just bought a new pen with emerald green ink so we'll see. Black was for winter, I guess.
See how infrequently I use this anymore? I just now saw this from you and you can check www.anti-product.com/1000x1000 or, if ever you wanna, you can call or text me at 520-271-5289. Yup.
