In my spare time I'm working as artist on a webcomic series with a writer who lives just outside Chicago. I work on other illustration commissions too, and I get paid a little to write comic reviews. Experimenting on my own art when I can make the time. I'm slowly learning French via Duolingo, and trying to be healthier. Moved to a new apartment in Ravenswood, new things to explore, new gym membership. Always busy but I guess I like it that way.
Thanks to Netflix, I'm constantly finding good TV though. I have the habit of listening to television while I'm working on my art. Latest hook is Steven Universe. For real, it's great.
Books? Kobo Abe, Tennyson, Poe, Shelley, Blake, Pessoa, Mishima, Baudelaire, Rilke, some classical epics (The Ramayana, Die Nibelungen, etc.), some classic scifi here and there. I'm trying to read more non-fiction, particularly relevant to the history of art.
I read a lot of comics and graphic novels too, both for pleasure and to review. I'm pretty open minded with the medium and I think I have fairly diverse taste.
I can appreciate a lot of different kinds of music, though, I primarily listen to a few kinds- I listen to a lot of gloomy 80s goth-rock and bouncy synth-pop. But I like diversity. In the winter I like folk, in the spring I like pop, in the summer hip-hop, and in the fall I often feel like prog. Lately lots of Vashti Bunyan, Young Fathers, Yes, Goldfrapp.
I love food in general. I have opinions on good and bad, but I can't bring myself to claim favorites on styles of cuisine. I've been cooking a lot of salmon this year, and asparagus is my new favorite thing. Just bought a little grill.
2. Optimism, hope for the future.
3. Good memory.
4. Creative outlets.
5. A library card.
6. CTA card.
I think a lot about my art, and my future. Society. People. Big ideas, little ideas. I think a lot about a lot of things, and I'm always thinking. Post-war Japanese literature, Vedic myths, hermetic alchemy, comic book theory, continental philosophers, the role of the artist, patriarchy and cultural hegemony, scifi technology, character designs, evolution of fictional creatures... The list is always growing.
