Side note: A lot can be accomplished if one decides to ‘listen’ to their favourite shows instead of ‘viewing’ them, unless you try to do that with Mr. Depp whose cheek bones will have you glued to the screen for life.
Amidst such and such, I decided to update this space with some of my new work, which is, in reality, from months ago. Although being unable to publish immediately makes me anxious at times, I also use publishing on a later date as a tool to decide whether or not I did well. Often times, work which stands the longevity of time turns out to be work I truly cherish in the long run. The opposite is true for work which makes my skin crawl with embarrassment only a few months after I thought it was the best I possibly did. What better way is there to learn, than pitting your old work against even older work, in a gruesome stand off of self doubt and self criticism? Surprisingly though, as the years have passed by, old work seems to embarrass me lesser and lesser, to the point where it has pretty much ceased to do so.
This, lack of embarrassment, is perhaps what it means to find your own in a creative space. What has been reduced down to the expression of ‘having a unique aesthetic’ or ‘style’, which I personally find limiting as a creator; is maybe, simply the comfort one feels with their skills after years of practise. It does not necessarily need to conform to a set of visual guidelines, instead be a confident presence of an essence that has been cultivated over time.
Hopefully, such a revelation will accompany my semi-existent hair colouring skills too, at some point, as I try and rectify the sins of my bleaching past, one hair section at a time.
