For over eight years I have been putting myself out there creatively.
Reinventing, rediscovering, writing, talking, brainstorming, pitching, pursuing and pondering.
I have had some highs (mostly on Twitter with an account now defunct). I have had some lows (closet organizing company—what?). But overall, I have never ever stopped putting myself out there—in front of my community, friends, internet, social media—creating a mass of work that at first was terrible (terrible!) but has shifted its way up to pretty good and is hopefully headed toward really great (fingers crossed!).
And by putting out “a huge volume of work…[I know I] will catch up and close that [creative] gap”, taste and ambition leading the way.
