The internet is one crazy place to be sometimes. I can go from watching videos of 'Mothman' to listening to obscure 1960s psychedelic girl groups with a singer who has epilepsy. It is kind of like time travel. A good thing happened to me tonight on the internet. I got a personal email from none other than Tavi Gevinson from the blog 'Style Rookie', asking me to be a weekly contributor in a new project she is developing - an online blog/magazine. I will have my own column where I can write about whatever I want, and am submitting 3 drawings a week for use in the publication. I will have deadlines like Carrie in Sex and the City and I couldn't be more excited!
Tavi 'the new girl in town' knows what's up and it will really really cool to work with her on this! If you don't know her blog you have been living under something heavy and hard but here is a link for your convenience www.thestylerookie.com
I feel like I'm slowly getting closer to 'the dream', maybe being an artist/writer/person who makes a living off creative things that I like doing anyway is really possible. I'm thinking seriously about it now, I want to get a proper website, business cards and all that professional jazz and really give it a proper go. It's so romantic. So, I will keep you updated on this new and excited project I am involved in and let you know as soon as it's up and ready for your scrutiny.
Love and gurl power,
