teenage dreams are hard to beat.
part is going to be about my friends, because i love them and they are all the most beautiful girls and they are fun and they totally animate my ideas. part about all the stupid things i read-- i read everything, nonstop-- because everything informs everything else and it's all more like a circle, truly. and in my life, design is synonymous with art and beauty and the natural world. it's about creating a face to present. it's a functional perspective. i grew up surrounded by a beautiful world, creating a face to meet the day on the other side of the gate, where the rest of the world keeps time.
partly it's a tremendous escape. a way of locking myself in for days, giving up the ghost and forgetting the world, focusing on the perfect cuts and stitches and lines and curves. of getting it right, of watching every single twin peaks episode, being in the room nine hours and just glowing because it came out aces. it is putting faces and arms on ideas and feeling.
