I was interviewed by Liz Griffin of Lark and Bloom - click through to see my take on art, photo, social, and some other things.

Anonymous asked:

Michael, I'm a big fan of your work, and I wanted to ask you for a little advice. I receive a fair amount of appreciation for my work, whether it be friends or colleagues. What I feel is a problem, however, is that I have a hard time seeing what they claim to see in my work. Some days I'll feel proud of my work, and other days I'll feel that I'm not good enough, and I lose my drive to create more. What is it that I can do to better appreciate my work, and feel confident enough to continue?

My friend, you’re not alone - I have felt the same things. Watch this video my buddy Christian made for The Music Bed.

Learning your weakness whilst not giving in to it - that is where the true reward lies. 

There’s often much temptation to throw in the towel when at one’s weakest. But if you’re smart, and you know your weakness, you will seek community. The right friend should remind you of the strength in not succumbing to your flesh - and the strength to be sought after in something greater than yourself.

I’m in a pruning season. Chicago’s urban atmosphere swording my weakest appendages.

Stuck in this weird sort of limbo. Between art and business. David Ramirez says that when you mix art with business, you’re just shooting an empty gun. Concur.

Need more passion projects.
