Stop. Adventure Time.

Storm clouds rolled away and I'm in a very happy place. Why? Personal stuff. Artistic stuff.

I complain a lot about my corporate day job, but hell, it allows me to support myself, feed myself, put a roof over my head. And beyond that, it offers me gracious benefits like a PAID, FOUR WEEK SABBATICAL that starts this Friday.

Thus: Adventure time.

What does that mean? Headed to an amazing workshop at Arrowmont in the Smoky Mountains next week. A full week studying under the amazing artist Lauren DiCioccio

There, I'll turn the self-portrait above into a embroidered portrait. It's a new world for me.

Beyond that, I'm going to Montreal with my mami and a road trip with my squeeze. 

Who the hell am I to complain about anything? I'm lucky, mofos.
