I miss you. I just want to scream it out loud. I hate not being near you. Not feeling your touch. I hate not telling you about every detail of my day. I just want to skip the bullshit. I just look forward to the weekend. TO sitting on that bus and tapping my finger anxiously waiting to hold you. My art is not enough to get me by..I need you.
SO lately I have just been really getting into this era. The way the men were, and the idea of how men should carry themselves. Art, music, the way life seemed back then just seems like something out of this world. I performed last night with my girlfriend at this small coffee shop, we are a kind of 50’s imitation band playing tunes like Johnny Cash and June Carter. We even dress the part.
Well friends, it comes that time of the summer when its almost August. College is around the corner. Its a bit intimidating thinking about going back to art school, getting my shit together and drawings for the next century in a half. (At least it feels like it!) Anyways of course I am excited to see all of my wonderful friends that I made in my first year of college and I am even more excited on meeting new people. But I cant say that I am happy that the school year is approaching. I mean this has been the best summer of my life, spending all day with my fantastic girlfriend and then as the sun comes down I begin to illustrate until it rises again. This has been my routine for about 2 months almost. She inspires me, as well as you know all the masters and mucha and Art Nouveau pioneers. I am very confident in my skill as an Illustrator right now, I think I am in a good place and I cant wait to see how much better my class mates have gotten. (Its kind of a sick and twisted competition in where every artist wants to win but we all respect each other.) I am blessed to be in the same classes again as my best friends Michele and Melanie. Those girls get me through my semester when the work load gets rough! Anyways traveling every weekend by mega bus up to skidmore to visit Michaella is actually sounding very exciting. I love the city but going up every weekend and spending time in her luxurious new house and getting away from the craziness that is 27th street sounds like a fantastic idea. This year is going to be good, many challenges await. But I hope all keeps going my way for once, its a fantastic feeling. Good night everyone.
