I am having one of those years in my life where all those dum mistakes I have ever made make a little more sense now. Like I finally got something right even if I didn't know it. All those moments of folly finally added up to something in me that is logical. Mathmatics makes more sense now, is more useful to me; I can look back and see why I made mistakes and how they affect me now. I can use those tools to excel without losing myself again. You know all those equations that are supossed to add ...

Getting started hanging my newest piece 'the chandelier' Have the lid up right now, going to work on getting it lit sometime soon. Then I will add all the tendrils. I have one clear straight one for the middle, and then the cobalt tendrils will surround and fill out the rest of the sculpture. So excited!!
my new favorite!

A risk. Finding a program you like and staying until the people there realize you are there. Putting yourself in a place that you like, and realizing you're the person you like. or finding out you can put on a show doing what you love for you know money... 5 dollars at the door. grinding gears wondering about the same things pays off when you are somewhere you can ask. then frustration. can't even get a solid line in illustrator... submit!

Love school by the way. Finally got into this program and now I am sitting in this design class, finally somewhere I can kick it with a computer. It just makes more sense whether I am just drawing or designing or zoning out being somewhere else. Finally feel like I can take a breath from all the mayhem. This summer was awful... To much about money not enough everything else. Got into the swing of teaching and loving it. 2nd graders are the cutest and 5th graders are so much smarter than anyone...

Glad to be out and about this summer. Doing a lot of shopping for showing spaces, while still hanging at the Public Library. Painting is looking less daunting; trying to unpack the layers in my own artistic talent and then translate those ideas to the canvas. Also find myself finding lots of old frames, all headed towards the garbage until I get to rescue them victoriously for my own use. Its great realizing that people before me did some of the same things as me. That I can keep doing these ...

Glassy business talks today. feels like I can never get enough. Talking about the biz is so enthralling. Copying vocabulary makes me feel like a student again, is good. Finding my niche here is going to be the hard part, yet the reason to wait as well. The horizon feels closer in my mind, which is always a good feeling. Sales gotta be coming up for everyone because its been a long line of production. I wanna store. Somewhere we could have glass all the time. We could screen applicant ...

In the act of 'Fine Art Post Graduate Schooling' and 'sceenstering' I find myself. With a degree in philosophy from UCSD it is hard to deny myself the revealing experiences of my art practice. I tell myself it’s a Palomar MFA to give myself the proper kick in the rear. Hounding everyone for movement towards the next project and blatantly self-promoting myself everyday never seems to feel like a crime. Trying to figure my style into the world of art is always challenging; yet all I can get out ...

of nonsense, of not getting hired, of paying all my dues and just having to wait. of seeing others getting what they want, then hearing it's not what they want. pay me already. can't start anything without support, money please, job please, so i can pay for my bills. the end;

I am 25. Looking for a place to belong; a field to cultivate in myself. I want to be in a place where I am needed and respected. There are a few options that I am looking at as probable. Both look fun. HR. Education. I am finding myself being very positive about both. This is great! However, this positivity coming from both sides makes it harder to secure one in my head over the other. I love interacting with people. I have 6 years experience in a restaurant atmosphere. My parents ar...

Recently, I have been trying to understand the dealings of the city in artistic affairs. It is proving to be rather difficult mainly because there are no laws, regulations, or personnel high enough up to actually have any say for there to be a big enough umbrella to cover all sorts of street activity. The problem that we are dealing with is the illegal removal of permissioned or commissioned work. Most credible teams have attained Public Liability Insurance which should more than cover th...

I am involved with this gallery in my home town and recently our roof caved in! How diabolical it is that the roof repair man said there were already 6 existing holes in the roof that lead to the leakage and eventually to the collapse. Went to the City to get approved for repairs and it looks good so far. Now the only thing we have to worry about is a takeover! This brewery called Mother Earth (they're great) want the space next door to us but it's hard to seperate the buildings from one anoth...

hmm. I want to think really hard about what this means because it is one of those huge issues that is not gonna go away anytime soon. I think that the responsibility of being involved with the internet is multifaceted. There are people who use images illegally (meaning without permission and for their independent benefit) and there are people who use those images to convey feelings and emotions that could otherwise not be accuratley represented. For example Tumblr... I know that PIPA is espec...

One of the best websites for looking up collaborative efforts to advance the muraling community. I love the light they shed on this growing scene. Being from a town where half of the old town is covered in murals it is inspiring to see new work being done. The skill involved blows me away every time and honestly I am looking forward to tyring my hand at the craft. Legality needs to be taken into consideration since I can't really invest in getting arrested to gain some street cred. Just go...

Probably the easiest time of the year. Everything is supossed to be new so it is. the old fades gracefully, antiquating itself as new becomes more intriguing. all take comfort as the ideas of the radical dominate everyone's minds. The time of the year where it makes sense to move on. Anything new is a promise of saying goodbye. Luckily not everything dissapears.

hm well being stolen from, especially art is quite a new experience for me. Seems to happen more oftne when I leave stuff out which makes sense. I do like the social and creative commentary of stealing. It seems like it emphasizes the importance of ownership, but also the value of the peice. Like anywhere there is something you can save online isn't that the naturalist form of flattery and admiration.
on staying put...

IN genre and living spaces it is always a challenge to accept a stagnant concept. My idea is to cultivate my own reachings within the realistic bounds of life. Only the bounds you create for yourself can be in herently creatively realising. Self realization being one of the most challenging concepts to forsee; claiming one's own space is just one of those steps to becoming everything you always have been. The blank slate of being has been with you every moment no matter how fleeting. An...

so I think I want to write a thesis on my own time... How lame is that? Topics: How art is changing with the new abstract movement being so solidified in painting. How Fine Glass Art work is evolving past the functional. The new street art movement that is permeating past the street and moving onto the canvas and the significance of it being able to do so. Should we be moving it? What is this street canvas going to perpetuate? Is the street really the only place for art; and if so sh...

More blatant self promotion; but this time you can do it too =P Just bragging mostly because I am a part of this little Gallery in downtown Vista. Totally non-profit and amazing. We have a huge warehouse next door for classes and random rompings. Had a space for spraying plywood with random artistic creativities...what could be bad about that. Would love to have more people involved because then its just a party. We have these great receptions once a month and of course refreshments, tehe....
