when the mill turns for the better

in the midst of several creative projects, my daytime job has meandered into a full time occupation, spread over a 4 days week. i need not explain the hectic change this brings along. yet, also a good change.

i'll be getting the builders in, instead of me trying, and failing, at doing it all. combining a creative ambition, a house renovation and life is a losing game, and anything that feels that heavy needs reassessing.

the decision making pained me nonetheless, but while i can, i want to bring in a little more loot and be done with tying up many loose renovation ends that have been irking me. seven+ years of trying is a long time.

i've done good, i'm happy with all that i have done. it was a wonderful trip too, but it's dragging now, and i want to live in a house that welcomes me on a calm clean and warm note, rather than eyeballing faded walls. 

exhibition place, september 9th
i'm finally tying up exhibition preps too. in the july i'd unexpectedly accepted an elaborate illustration job, which busted up most of the summer. great learning curve, froze up my agenda completely though. 

wijk-aan-zee sea shell!
the light at the end is now within reach. that second weekend of september seven new drawings will be first shown to the public and i actually can't hardly wait. i'll make sure to post a bit more towards the date.
