I was talking with a friend about starting a blog / attaching one to my current website, and I was going back and forth about what I should write about. I don’t consider myself an expert in any field, really. I’ve been acting “professionally” (meaning, I get paid, not that I’m union - but that’s a whole other conversation) since I was 17 years old. I’ve been creating digital art in some capacity or another for even longer than that.
But I’ve never really felt like any of it was good enough to shout about from the rooftops, and I certainly didn’t feel like I could write a blog about my process or aesthetic or interest. And so I asked her what she thought would be ‘good content’ for a blog for me, and she was like “I don’t know how you come up with the things you do. Write about that.”
To which I replied, “I don’t know either. It’s like art vomit.”
So here we are. It’s 2020 and shit’s hit the fan and I’m stuck at home, like so many of you are, constantly trying to figure out how to grow despite the new limitations that we’re all trying to figure out how to navigate. And so here I am, writing a blog. I’m calling it Art Vomit. Because a lot of this is going to be me word vomiting attempting to describe a process that I’m not even certain that I understand. If that’s interesting to you, AMAZING! I hope you’ll stick around and comment and let me know what you think, and what you’d like to see, and what you’d like to read.
I think sometimes I’ll talk a bit about normal life “stuff”, what it’s like being a freelancer full-time, and my experience as an actor, too, because that’s been such a massive part of my life, and even though to me, the process makes me feel more like a cog in a machine than an artist, at it’s core, the craft of acting is a beautiful art too.
So that’s it. That’s the introduction. Check back soon for some actual Art Vomit.
