Feeling rather removed from everything.
-It’s a Vashti Bunyan sort of morning.
-I’ve been using the same set of colored pencils for five years now. Sky Blue is winning the race.
-It’s important to love the people you love.
Strange places. The oddest room I’ve ever been in was the shower in a very old hotel in Montreal. It must have been retrofitted from a service staircase or something, because it was less than three feet wide but almost twenty feet high. One had to step up into it through a very low doorway and the only light came through the skylight at the top of the precipitous walls. It was February when I stayed and the light had this odd green tinge by the time it made it down to the floor. On the plus side, the shower head was high enough that I didn’t have to bend down to get under it.
I went stargazing tonight. There was scotch, and insect repellent, and darkness.
1500 light years isn’t so far.
-I have deep-seated fears that hipsters will ruin my limited fashion options again. They did it in 1995, and once more I’m hearing jokes about beards and flannel. This is the only look I have, damn it.
- “We can’t offer you payment, but think about the exposure!”, is something that never gets mentioned to doctors or lawyers, but if you’re involved in a creative businesses you end up hearing it from the spouses of doctors and lawyers. A lot.
-We’ve started watching Hannibal. I get distracted during the many scenes filmed at my school. “That’s no FBI building, that’s the ventilation stack over the cafeteria.” etc.
During October I’d like to draw a few creepy things. What I’d REALLY like is to try and illustrate some people’s nightmares. Hit me up if this sounds intriguing. Also let me know what to tag them with if you’re sensitive.
I used to play a lot of chess. For all its complexity, at the highest levels chess games are almost never played through to completion.
