Hi! I have moved my website energies to a new location: mothdrawn.com
I was missing creating daily updates, but feeling like the blog is a tired form. However, unlike with social media, I love that an individual’s website really allows you to enter someone’s world, to not just receive snippets that have that same feeling as other snippets above and below them. I still have blogs I visit because I want to fully enter these individuals’ worlds — to be absorbed by their language and imagery. I crave that, actually. So I’ve created a ‘daybook‘ with daily entries that don’t deal so much with the banal minutia of life as much as capture a certain energy I want to share with others. It is a way for me to study and to share beauty. It is still personal, but it’s personal like poetry is personal — hopefully more edited and refined than blogs tend to be.
New to the mothdrawn site that makes it pretty different from this site: I have created a small shop in order for readers to get to hold a piece of beauty in some form — currently there are drawings, photographs, and letterpress. I hope to add more work in the near future and for it to be continually updated. I believe that the online world can be as good a gallery space as any, so I choose to show my work there in a gallery form. I think the shop is then a way for people who enjoy my work to get to know it in a new way — to hold it, stick a photo in a book, frame it, or give it away. There is something wonderfully human about receiving mail, and I want to share my work in this way with people.
Thank you so much for taking a look at my new website!
