I’ve been feeling off lately.. just generally dissatisfied and stuck in this weird slump. But tonight as I was laying in bed trying to fall asleep I finally had one of those lightbulb moments - something clicked and I think I’ve figured out the last component of my storyboard for a side project / collaboration I’m working on.. I had to get up and scribble down my ideas and now I’m totally awake feeling inspired and motivated.
This project is an exciting one and really personal to me. My good friend has asked me to make a video to go along with a song she’s written and recorded. The song’s already done - and it is amazing - so I definitely feel some pressure to make sure that the visuals are on par with the soundtrack. Also, the song is actually about our friendship over the years (I finally got a song written about me!) so I kind of have a personal stake in this. :)
I want to go out a lot more as soon as it starts getting warmer. This spring I’ll hopefully be out on Newbury St. in Boston selling prints every weekend that we have good weather. :) Last semester I was only able to make it out there for a couple weekends in October before it got too cold / my workload got out of control.
