Another New Year and much has changed for me. I find myself with new responsibilities and challenges. I grew as a person and as a professional. Making art is never easy but the reward is proportional to the challenge.

Forever Home

Forever Home is about loss, grief, and belonging. I have long been interested in the interplay between the city and the self as part of that larger whole.

Sometimes I think that I should just let the pictures speak for themselves but a blog is a space to practice expository writting, even if it is bad.

I've been inspired by the authors whose newsletters I read to just make more and to not sweat the mistakes.

The End of the Year

2021.12.31

Is this supposed to be a living document? Is it a blog? It's supposed to be simple. Thought I know I'll probably be running into issues writing the raw html by hand. Just like years ago in high school when I tried to design a website. It's a look. A raw stream of consiousness. I should write them in text beforehand with a spellchecker. This is inspired somewhat about by the guy who has the paper blog service, where your photograph of text on paper gets converted to a simple website.
