“I don’t know what the hell is going on. Neither do you, and neither does any one else. We’re all lost and improvising, making things before we know what they do, and breaking stuff before we know what replaces it. We’re all tinkering and speculating, listening to see if our shovels hit something hard while we’re digging. I suppose that’s what world-building is, though, so let’s get used to it. We need to learn to tolerate ambiguity.”
Frank Chimero, telling it like it is. I suggest you read the whole thing. Here’s another nugget of wisdom:
Increasingly, our way is to fake it and assume that others are doing the same. We fein interest in work, speak sarcastically, buy things that are new reproductions of old things, and often presume someone is selling us something. Skepticism as a default state is a hell of a thing. We’re a hungry culture starved for sincerity, authenticity, and honesty.
What does fixing it look like? It doesn’t look cool. In fact, it probably involves being so passionately enthusiastic about something that it is the exact opposite of cool. By caring intensely, we can connect to one another in more meaningful ways.
Finally able to talk about this! The good folks at Umbra have chosen my designs as face papers for new picture frames they’ll be coming out with in the near future.
My two friends Kevin and Jordan recently collaborated to start a fashion blog called Twins in Town. It’s unique in that they bring their own talents to the table; Kevin posts his illustrations and paintings while Jordan uses the blog to document his adventures in the realm of styling.
I got to help them out with their custom blogspot layout as well as other general website stuff like obtaining a domain name and integrating social media profiles into the blog.
So far their posts have been exceptional and I’m so excited to see where it’s headed. Make sure you give them a visit!
