The next plan on my agenda is to wrap up some more stories born of illustrations I compiled between 2009 and 2010. I intend to keep writing and showing new work in galleries, as well as taking on a tattoo apprenticeship. My goal is that by the end of 2012, I can once again be financially independent enough to live on my own. Whether or not I decide to stay in San Diego is still a mystery to me- I’ve had inclinations to move up to LA or even San Francisco for a period of time, maybe even tool around the east coast or other countries, if they let me in... It might even be interesting to write a vaguely detailed story documenting the decisions and actions I've taken to willingly place myself in this predicament- then pray that my awkward bumblings will potentially translate into enlightening efforts and inspire those of us that are less inclined to blindly dive into our passionate interests.
