I have been fatally distracted by tumblr and also website-building, but EVEN MORE EXCITING is my other fatal distraction, which is that I joined up with a co-op, and we're opening a store.
The co-op is the Portland Artisans' Co-op Team, and our store (fingers crossed for an April 1 opening) is Artistic Portland. I've spent a great deal of time trying to build the website & manage the Facebook and convince people to donate to our IndieGogo.
I feel like I lost touch with this website when I lost touch with my art -- but we've not reconnected here like I have in my studio. The last few days I've been trying to find the ease of production that I had in college. How was it that I filled four sketchbooks in a year, kept up with all these things? How was it that I wrote so much and so easily?
I think that "growing up" has instilled such a powerful fear in me -- a fear of failure, many kinds of failure. But I am trying to find the right feeling again, and I am working whether or not the feeling comes.
But you guys have been on my mind -- I feel like a jerk, having just disappeared like that. How are you doing? What have you been up to? Please tell me about your adventures. <3
