Dating site fails tumblr drawings
launched in February 2009, as a place for me to show artwork that “made me jealous”, in a bad, toxic, soul-crushing way.
I was literally getting stopped in my tracks every time I saw work that I loved. But now, over seven years later, that “jealousy” has turned magically, wonderfully, and into inspiration… In all seriousness, I’ve realized that jealousy can actually be turned completely on it’s head, and used as fuel to get back into the studio. That’s when the magic transformation from jealousy to inspiration starts to happen.
Granted, when I find work I love, I still find myself saying “Damn, I wish I thought of that” … As I move forward with the site, I’ve realized that what I’m most interested in is, of course sharing/exposing the work of talented contemporary artists, but I’m also absolutely fascinated with the self-doubt part – the insecurities, inner-critics, creative blocks, and of course the jealousy that all of us have to deal with at some point.
I have just finished writing a more in-depth follow up book, titled “Your Inner Critic Is A Big Jerk”, which will be released Fall 2016 both as a hardcover and as an audio book., and a post-grad in design.
I’ve worked as a designer and Creative Director for years, but have never stopped loving and creating art.
After decades of looking at beautiful contemporary art and thinking “Damn, I wish I thought of that”, I decided to say it out loud, and was born.
Every day since February 22, 2009 I have written a daily post showcasing artwork from around the world.
Dating back thousands of years, this is the oldest technique for manufacturing sculpture.
