First off, my apologies for the very late posting today. I usually prep these things in advance, but school has been taxing and I have been spending time with visitors. And I procrastinated, and let’s be honest, it’s mostly that.
I was having a hard time figuring out what to write about today, and I didn’t just want to slap up something pretty and call it a Friday. This has been a great, but really challenging week. I am being pushed in a lot of different directions with design, and each class is a whole day of things I don’t know how to do. Turns out, fashion drawing with pencil is not my thing, but using ink from a well really, really is. In anycase, I have needed a bit of a boost this week, and music is great for that. A few weeks ago I asked Tiff for some music recommendations because I still listen to Roxette and Paul Simon most of the time. She told me about Bleachers, lead by the dude from Fun, the band that makes jump-around-power-ballads, and Lena Dunham’s boyfriend, Jack Antonoff. I have been listening to “I Wanna Get Better” on repeat the past week and it is officially my art school anthem. It’s fun but smart, and catchy but deep. I can’t help but swagger walk when it comes on. I love it so much, I hope you do too.
