it's a confusing time and, you know, there's a lot going on. not too long ago, my ambitions centered on my craft, my portfolio, the brands and companies i worked with, getting clout for "cool" and "innovative" work, being "the best," etc. etc.
now where do my ambitions lie? becoming less angry, and more patient? making people laugh? trying to fix this dang mess?
for better or worse, i still define myself by what i make. i still love to make. i just care less about the thing and more about the consequences now.
if you have ~10 minutes, you can read about how i've changed in 2020.
