Totally overwhelmed trying to finish stuff before the big artz-n-fartz week. By that - I mean both YART and a solo art show hanging at Savages Alehouse. Both on the first Thursday of October. Both very important to me. I’ve slacked on working hard on art since becoming obsessed with deejaying. But really - if feels kind of nice to have a fresh restart on a few projects.
Reflecting on art in my life in general:
I know this will sound like some desperate attempt to glean Adderral from someone - but I feel as though I’ve developed ADD. I get so many ideas going at once, full speed, in my head - that execution of any of them becomes this insurmountable task that, once started, I quickly find fault with OR become bored. I have no discipline. Would I have acquired discipline in art school? Maybe. But I’m almost 30 and don’t have the time, baby. Or the student loans left for using.
As a result of all of the above - my studio space is a WRECK with about 20 different “projects,” going on at once. Our living space is a hodgepodge of music equipment, books, magazines, abandoned coffee cups, unopened mail, and my toys are everywhere. Wires and cords go everywhere like aimless electric snakes. And the ashtrays…always emptying….over and over.
Is this the inevitable end to the creative people’s week - every week? Wrecking the house to create and then purging the filth? Or should I just put my goddamn cups in the sink and try putting newspaper down before spray painting in the house. Whatever. I think I’m gonna go play guitar. GET ALLLLLL THE PEDALS OUT. SPREAD THEM ON THE FLOOOOOOOOR!
