Yesterday and with no warning whatsoever, my friend Jeffrey posted one sentence:
Things are going to change, I can feel it.
Besides getting the song in my head (arg), I’ve adopted that statement as my personal mantra this week. I am so very close, I just have to take it one day at a time and keep things in perspective. (Insert additional cliche affirmations here.) But since impulse control has never exactly been my specialty, I awarded myself extra special props for not jumping the gun or acting before thinking through the consequences. So yeah, go me.
In other news of things on the horizon, albeit with a bit more content than the paragraph above, a couple of my pieces (probably printmaking – I haven’t totally decided yet) will be up for auction at this year’s Rock the Streets on June 12th in East Liberty.
There is an incredible list of musicians and artists involved, and I am humbled to be included. Tickets can be purchased at the link above, and 100% of the proceeds benefit Community Human Services. Hopefully a bunch of yinz guys are already planning to attend.
One of my plans over the next couple weeks is to get our third floor studio back up and running, giving both Avi and myself a place to “work”. Yes, part of this plan includes purchasing a small air conditioner if we’re really going to make use of the space this summer, but that’s my serious intention. I have three illustration projects and some independent layout/graphic work I’d like to get a move on, so hopefully once the studio project is complete the motivation will follow.
