Of puppy meat sandwiches and prose.

mercilessly

Following your “most intense obsessions mercilessly” sounds cooler to me anyway. But then again, I just want desperately to draw every hour of every day. If your passion is perfecting the puppy meat and pickles sandwich, I would beg you to reevaluate. Or at least to keep your studies philosophical.

Kafka is a well known writer who started out writing short stories in his spare time and for “the rest of his life, he complained about the little time he had to devote to what he came to regard as his calling.” I can totally relate to that.

The later the hour – the lovelier the lunatic.

Everybody might be crazy lately, but can anybody survive it? When you have a vision that won’t let you sleep, you might as well make an effort to make a success of it. Let the sun set on the sane, the later the hour – the lovelier the lunatic.

“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep. You must ask for what you really want. Don’t go back to sleep.” – Rumi

Some early randomness to get you through the very first hump-day of the new year. It’s scary how few people are aware that matching your socks is speculated to be downright unhealthy! For more important human stuff read your rights here.

I am an artist…

I trade in

 

Ralph Steadman‘s  famous for illustrating Hunter S. Thompson‘s trippy travels.  I am pretty damn sure he had dark visions and impossible situations to spare when on assignment with Gonzo! But that’s what makes art so awesome, it doesn’t have to correspond with any reality! And as creatives we’re truly lucky to have access to such incredible imaginary worlds. I often take my imagination for granted. It only takes one night out to remind me of the boring worlds other people get themselves stuck in. With a little creativity you can explore limitless identities with a few weird wardrobe choices. Or build entire empires with dining room furniture! Why would you want to sit at a bar and scream at a television if you have minions to master?!
