Beginning of September

To want, to need, to get.....

I haven't done any personal creatives in a while.  I really do miss it.  When I first started I was literally shooting every other weekend....sometimes both Saturday's and Sunday's in a row! Occasional passersby at the studio would comment that I must be living there since they saw me there so often.  I couldn't help it.... it was like a drug to me.  Of course, it was long nights planning, retouching, assessing, griping, moping, being disappointed, being happy and by the end of it all.... being satisfied with the end product.  Till I realized that it wasn't good enough and felt I needed to improve for the next shoot.  I slowly, but surely watched myself and my work improving.  Maybe it's the trait of being a perfectionist of wanting to improve because the previous work was just not good enough.... oooooor maybe being a masochist and liked the idea of torturing oneself by inflicting challenges on a regular basis.  I think I'm more of the latter part.  I'm not really a perfectionist, but I do pay a lot of attention to detail...on days I'm not feeling lazy.  I'm also a workhorse.  I'd say that's more of a family trait from my mother's side to which I'm very thankful for.

SO.... what are my plans for the coming near future????? Why... planning creatives of course!  That is the remedy for me prescribed by my own self-person.  Time for me to really get my creative juices flowing and allow myself to be open and inspired by all things expose to me and around me.  Also, I've been very fortunate to be in touch with people I haven't spoken to in a while and who are extremely talented themselves.  They have asked me to work on creatives with them.... I take THAT as a sign from various gods and start utilizing with the opportunity given.  Only you can make things work for you because no one else will and nor will they happen on their own.  That's my motto and have stuck with it. 

The autumn season is arriving (my favorite season!) and with it comes a fresh start of great many things to come.  Time to roll up my sleeves and get my lazy ass back to work and become the vessel of some great art work for display to all while working with some wildly and innately talented folks whom without this wouldn't be possible.

Stay tuned as the journey continues... As I tumble through the rabbit hole only to be dumped into some weird world formed by Tim Burtons himself where oddly formed apparitions and creatures motivate me to come up with something .... well I don't know.... just have to wait and see ;)

Cheers for now...
