Interesting things happen when you decide to sketch for an hour or so before bed, instead of consuming YouTube videos. When you decide to work instead of play. Things get done. The ball moves forward and you are that much closer to a goal.
I should do this again and see if I get similar results.

A lot of late nights, accumulating into a collection. A conscious effort to accelerate the very thing that occupies my everyday mind dream. I walk a path, I make the journey… the journey makes me. Not stopping when I’m hurting, just attempting to bear fruit before the curtains catch me.
Recently started dabbling in streaming my creative efforts (https://www.twitch.tv/thefro3po come check me out, I’m streaming Tuesdays at 12-4pm MST and occasionally during the week when I get off of work 11pm to 12am MST ). A scary and exhilarating experience, but one that has been most rewarding. Here’s the broadcast of my first stream saved onto my YouTube account. I’ll be looking to do some time lapse versions of these in the future whenever I dust off my Premiere knowledge and stop procrastinating.
Sleep beckons me…
“When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain. From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.” – Rumi
I’ve reconnected to the digital realm via an actual computer… love the ability to post on the go and the options mobile devices provide. But I’ve always had a computer since 2005 and I’ve grown quite attached and comfortable with it (and the ability to actually type out a whole blog #heaven). Glad to have it back.
The main reason though I’m super stoked about having a computer again can be summed up in one word. PHOTOSHOP!!! Although, I’ll still be working in the traditional mediums, I’ll be moving the ball towards my 2017 goals so I can get back on track for completing Phase I by October.
I just recently had a schedule change at work, so my weekends are now Tues/Weds, so this first week will be a little weird as I adjust. But I’m stoked for late March/Early April. Some cool stuff going down.
Step two will be all about setting up a streaming work space (new desk, webcams, lighting, etc) and to begin actually streaming consistently. I have a ton of ideas on projects to stream and I imagine their will be an interesting learning curve as I stumble into “A Whole New World.”
For now, It’s grocery shopping and then I’m off to see Logan.
