I took my pills today.

This day and everyday.

Breaking down my studio corner today, it’s that time of year. Sadface.

But I’m super happy to be setting it up again in the next couple of weeks in my new park studio space!

  • jessicahaltermanSometimes you'll pick something up expecting that one person made it only to find out someone else did. People have tried to copy mine and best of luck to them, because mine will ALWAYS be more badass than theirs. That's just how it is. Most of them just like my work and want to make something cool or really don't understand. If these people are trying to sell then they are heinous individuals and should be chased from town with flaming torches. Haters gon' hate. Crappy situation, good luck!

    Haha first of all, you are fantastic, thank you. Your message made me smile! Second, thank you for reaching out, and your right, it’s going to happen… And can happen to anyone. But in the end, it will never be the same.

    Furthermore, to truly understand the inner workings of form and technique is what separates the original maker. A person making a representation of your work can’t understand these things. I saw a lot of people talking recently about artist statements and for me that includes working with intent (not that there isn’t room for experiment and danger). Under this constraint, making something like yours that happens to come out well is like someone snapping photos with their phone and processing the crap out of them calling themselves an artist because they got lucky.  

    Keep on being a badass.

    This is (probably) the end of my rant.
