Since I left my job and started working full time on GIVEGIVE, but even before that – long before that, come to think of it – I had been feeling very dissatisfied with my creative brain. Every time I painted, I felt like I was just going through the motions. I liked print-making, but honestly, the way I do it, is just an extension of doing graphic design/typography work. There’s not a lot of hand-skill involved. And I missed that.
So at the beginning of the year, I decided to make myself a little Tumblr for creating something daily. It could be drawing (as it has been lately) or it could be prints, knitting, or even baking a loaf of bread from scratch. It’s just about MAKING, and it’s been fun so far.
