Wow, it's been a month already! I'm gonna keep it going with a few changes to the format. Check back tomorrow for some Sweet Nothings updates.

Today my Sweet Nothing is borrowing from a pose I first masterfully crafted for Fist City's Volume 2 zine. Look below for a detail of "Playboys" and a detail of "Chair" from the aforementioned zine. Fist City co-founder Lomaho Kretzmann produces some cool stuff in his own studio practice AND he also helped me stretch all the paper that these Sweet Nothings are on. Peep his work here: http://lomaho.tumblr.com/
Pretty busy today so I had very little time to do this lil guy. Quite literally this is the first thing I drew. Sometimes I have a plan before I draw these, but in this case I just had to go with it due to the time constraints... so, here it is, an entry into my subconscious, kind of.
Dear Journal: Day 2 of reduced audience. Really testing my interest in doing this daily. I've heard the question asked before- would you still create work if you were stranded on an island? The dilemma of course being whether or not you create for the sake of creating, or is the art secondary to vanity. Hmmm... let's see how long my lil' Sweet Nothings can go on my personal drive alone.
Perhaps I should prop a Wilson volleyball up next to my drafting table as I work.
Welp, Instagram sure was fast to remove posts, AND apparently they're equally fast at deactivating accounts too. So, that ends the 3 week long journey of Sweet Nothings on Instagram :( I guess there's always the lawless land of Tumblr of which I'm very unfamiliar. But maybe they'll have me. Of course, I'm always at home at my own site, so, consider subscribing to my RSS feed- though I'm not really sure what that means for you or myself.
Only 21 days in and I've already been stripped of an audience. I've grown dependent on all these endorphine-rich "likes" and "followers" that social media provides. Their removal has left me feeling neutered; sure, I have some of the tools, but no real power! So, make a poor boy feel LIKE A REALLLLL MAN and like ME. Like and comment to your heart's desire (right now I'm averaging a robust 1 like for every post, fingers crossed I can push that to 2). Share the page even. Tell a friend. But at the very least, enjoy the continued Sweet Nothings.
Happy MLK day, y'all!
