Jan 1, 2013- New Years day:
I decided that I was going to make 2013 heavily weighed on making personal work. Committing time, effort, and personal funds into it, whatever it would take, I decided it was a must. I truly feel that going to focus on creating a project or body of work and to do it well is so important. Then I further realized the underlying feeling: over the course of my career, it is more important to me personally, to be creating work that is respected by the people and artists I respect rather than focusing on trying to bill out a million dollars per year. shit- thats just me though.
Jan 15, 2013 I took off to Iceland for 30 days with no plan, contact, obligation, or fuckin clue. All I knew was I wanted to go post up somewhere for 30 straight days to do nothing but explore, experiment, and create new personal work. Over the course of the next week I will be releasing parts of that new body.
