Right now, my life is incredibly imbalanced. If I told you what I do all day, you'd probably think, why don't you have more time? I make art all day. And, I know it sounds like that shouldn't take up much of my time. But, it is an all-consuming VACUUM of time/energy. All I want to do is finish, and every small thing takes 4 times longer than I plan. Also, every small thing usually spawns at least 3 other processes/things to do. I love it. It keeps me joyously awake at night. I don't even know how much time is passing. An 11 hour day in the studio feels like 4 hours. I don't like talking about how much I actually get done because it sounds miniscule to someone who isn't there witnessing the process. I don't like talking about it all the time because most of the time I'm cognizant that I'm spending extravagant amounts of time making something that might be really really crappy. I know sometimes I blog about stuff because it was one day where I got to print something bright and large, something that didn't have to be perfect. But most days I just want to leave the studio and go back first thing in the morning to keep working.
I also know that there may never be another time in my life where I'm allowed to work like this. By the end of January, I need to have 9 projects completed. Right now I am not even half way finished.
Shoot. Please forgive me if I forget about things.
