Settling Back In

I'm settling back home in Sacramento for a few months whilst I save some money and tie up any last minute loose ends between my portfolio, web presence, mailing promotion, etc.. I've given myself a time limit no longer than 6 months, so some time between the end of this year and January of 2010, I will be making a career move to NYC. I don't want to lose any of my steam so the name of the game right now is sacrifice & dedication. The last few weeks after graduation can best be summed up as extreme anxiety sprinkled with glimmering moments of sheer excitement for my future.

World of Slumber, the above piece, is one of my two pieces on exhibition at the Academy of Art University's 2009 Annual Spring Show and undoubtedly is one of my favorite pieces of my career thus far. The uncertainty of the disorienting environment with an overall sense of wonder - that's what life is like right now for many people, including myself. Let's all try our best to stay inspired even in the face of trying times. Enjoy.

World of Slumber is a fantastic, fantastic piece. Still makes my jaw drop, months after I first saw it. Congrats, good luck, and here's looking forward to your coming success!

world of slumber is my favorite piece you've done to date baby boy. i love it! i've already alternated displaying your grad invitation from my room to my cubicle, back to my room, and back to my cubicle. i brought it back to work, b/c it's so interesting to look at that i just stare at it to pass the time. i see and interpret new things every time i look at it.

and if you need company in the midst of your sacrifice and seclusion. holler at me. i'm not trying to spend any money either, but it's not going towards a grand new adventure. i just don't have any.
