i am still in awe that we are already at the end of 2010! its really unfathomable to me! i’m so excited for what 2011 has in store!
it has been a whirlwind. i’ve been jumping around for a bit and 2 weeks ago, i was able to go to hawaii for my very first time. what a beautiful place!! i went w/ robert maxwell and we stayed in the north shore. it was mostly all work and very little play, but when your office is in paradise, you don’t really have a right to complain. i had 5 min. in the water during our lunch break, but i’m happy i got to experience it on someone’s else’s dime.
after that, i came right back to LA and started assisting nadav kander on a 5 day ad gig. i’ve always wanted to work w/ him. i find his imagery amazing! so it was a great experience to go thru and see his process of shooting.
i’ve had some days off now and have been catching up on my lack of sleep. i’ve also gotten a chance to do all my holiday shopping. i’m gonna take the time i have off to do some more tests. i updated my website recently w/ some new work. but adding new work makes me wanna have more work to put on. its an endless cycle. and i want to be a part of the cycle if i want to stay relevant.
“i never want to take this for granted, so i try to keep my motivations simple, real and positive. if i only scrape a living, at least it’s a living worth scraping. if there’s no future in it, at least its a present worth remembering… i feel genuinely lucky to hand on heart say i love doing what i do. and though i may never be a rich man, for if i live long enough, i certainly have a tale or two for the nephews.”
