New kind of makeup I want to do…Paul and Linda McC.
I am a very passionate person.
But I realized I haven’t stumbled upon a wonderland.
Is it because I feel like I need to create it myself?
But that leaves me without knowing the pieces that make that wonderland.
Complex question as I figure out my existence as a creative.Simultaneously I’ve had thoughts about my “style,” which I was told by artists that have clear styles of their own as something you find and wanna keep creating. I want to find my “style” but am less concerned about it. Regarding food, clothes, friends, and whatever else, my personality in general is all about variety. Kevin Barnes, my idol, definitely isn’t pigeon-holed into a style or genre -on surface at least. He has a style in terms of the topic his music evolves around (I.e. personal life), but his style changes depending on what he’s drawn to at the moment. But he does have his rabbit hole, which is how to use various instruments. I suppose I just gotta learn my weapons well….how come I don’t sound enthused about this? If you have a suggestion/ outlook/ insight for finding that rabbit hole, please send it my way.
Some people put “filters” on their personalities and self-expressions.
Especially when they first meet. Parties are filled with filters, so drinking helps, I suppose.
Same in the visual culture.
“Filter” as a concept has become mainstream since its introduction on Instagram.
It is a little different from film development, in that although they’re both to alter the original, “filter” can be previewed before the decision is made with a single click. The reception moment is just as quick as the development process. It’s all instant appeal.
I’m not making any concrete statement, but I guess that’s the point.
I highly appreciate filter, there’s definite beauty to it. But I’ve always just been #nofilter, and I’m having an appropriately momentary thought about whether I should put a filter at least for that “instant” moment before getting to the depth.…eh.
Like usual, I’m exciting myself with half-baked analogy, that’s all.
#1 a rolling pin
First I had to look up what it was.
(Ahh. I know what it is.)
All I can think of is: what if the wood itself is rolling out into a plywood?
Oh and only a bear would do such an act in a log cabin.
(Would be better with color, but not right now. It’s only 1 out of 642! Can’t wait to have free timeeeee.)

My First Animation with Modul8
For the first time in my life, I encountered a program I like / have the urge to teach myself: Modul8 and MadMapper.
With these programs, the goal is to create projection mapping. There are endlessly diverse possibilities here, in terms of the application and creative process. One main reason for me to learn this is so that I can make the three-dimensional space move in sync with music. Before I get my projector, I will focus on creating quick animations by learning tricks in Modul8. For starter, I am just going to make a sketch for each song in “Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?” by Of Montreal, which I have been religiously listening and drawing to anyway.
(yes I am breaking the rules I made for myself two days ago that I won’t embark on creative endeavors until Japan Day… but hey, this is a sketch.)
