  • This is what the inside of my front door looked like at the beginning of the month. It doesn't look like this anymore. I took down everything at the end of March.

    The collage was up there all winter. It was kind of a vision board - a collection of experiences I wanted to invite into my life.

    I'm not sure if I believe all that New Agey stuff. All I know is, I used to look at lots of pictures of humble-yet-beautiful white interiors... and now I live in a humble-yet-beautiful white interior.

    I used to look at beautiful illustrations... and now I create beautiful illustrations.

    I used to think I was ugly... and then I started taking self-portraits of myself, and now I can see my own beauty.

    That's all I know.

    And so I keep looking at beautiful things...
