Ah, it feels so good to have created successful self-portrait, after 2 long months of failed attempts at doing so. I also find it funny that this is pretty much the exact opposite of the last photo I uploaded.
That being said, this photo is part of a new series I'm starting, based on motion and energy in photographs. It started with this photo of my friend Brendon.
As you can see, I've shaved my head. I've also started working at Chipotle (I have my first shift ever in about 2 hours, haha), and I've decided to take a some time off from school to work, travel, and make art. My goal is to increase my clientele over the course of the next year, and I have plans to move ~somewhere by next fall. I'm thinking Oregon, if only for six months, for a change of scenery and fresh perspective.
I've been working hard for the past few weeks to better myself as a person and artist, starting small by getting a job, eating healthier, and working out. I'm hoping that these small steps will help me along the path to become the best person and artist I can be.
