One more class to go and I'll have my degree.  Started out in scientific illustration and somehow ended up here.  Like drawing, it's helpful to think of biology as a complex 3-dimensional puzzle.  New stuff in the works!  Still drawing/practicing every day. #biotech

-- Three years ago I worked at a pizza place in Woodbridge, VA.-- I had an incomplete biology degree.  Student loan debt.  No car. A history of unfinished projects, failures and half-assed attempts.

During this period I stopped creating.

I lost interest in drawing, writing, designing, sculpting, programming, soldering, sawing, hammering, taking shit apart. BUILDING.

I lost interest in the one thing that enabled me to MYTHOLOGIZE MY LIFE.  The one thing I had complete control over.

Instead, I consumed.  I read everyone else's​ opinions.  Watched everyone else's shit.  Used technology created by someone more intelligent than myself.

I began living someone else's myth.

One day at work I made a STUPID BET with my friend that I could take a random word - "Peargorg" or " Pear Gorganzola" (the name of a pizza we made) and turn it into a recognizable brand name/style.

We laughed about it.  He probably forgot about it.

I couldn't stop thinking about it.

What kind of person would have the willpower to follow through with something so improbable, so ridiculous?

For months, years on end?

I had no idea. 
But regardless of whether I failed or succeeded -

I NEEDED TO BECOME THIS KIND OF PERSON.

PART 2 COMING SOON. #sketchbook #moleskine #sketchbookpro #micron #drawing #motivation #persistence #keepgoing #inktober

Drawing bigger these days, helps with the subtleties of line weight.
