Of the personality disorders, the most common are performance anxiety and social phobia: both of which reflect a fear of other people, who are perceived as both evaluators and competitors – the only roles for society that market fundamentalism admits. Depression and loneliness plague us.

The infantilising diktats of the workplace destroy our self-respect. Those who end up at the bottom of the pile are assailed by guilt and shame. The self-attribution fallacy cuts both ways: just as we congratulate ourselves for our success, we blame ourselves for our failure, even if we have little to do with it.

Bullet Journal: An analog note-taking system for the digital age →

Scott Kubie recommended that I read about Bullet Journal. I organize my life in my sketchbook, but I am no so good at implementing systems, and sometimes the books get chaotic as I jump from project to project.

So, Bullet Journal is a simple system of rapid logging and signifiers. I start a new sketchbook tomorrow and I am certain using these ideas will help me make better use of it.

Who advises the advisors?

my advice for an advisory committee

What are trends of contemporary art and design?
  • Work with a clever twist in craftsmanship, e.g. these “3D paintings” 
  • Heavy intersection with/sourcing from pop culture. Very commercial, but also very much the most likely art to be shared by the layman. E.g. anything shown by Gallery 1988
  • Zeitgeists of dystopia, distrust, unity, nature, animism
  • Better representation/lots of interest in artists of Africa
  • And China for a while but that seems to be peetering out?
What are trends you see in your particular field?
Interest in lo fi techniques and even sloppiness. Rejection of the tech and expense that’s become associated with art and design. How can we make it easier/simpler/faster/cheaper/bigger? Experimentation with little concern for finished work or “product”. Punk still rulez: anti-establishment, pro-grassroots and homegrown.
How should we be preparing our students for the future as artists and designers?
Help them be well-rounded people capable of goal-setting and embracing failure? Tell them jobs are a lie and to drop out. Share poetry with them. Help them find other places to learn from, especially if they aren’t learning from you. 
Any other suggestions that would benefit our students to make them prepared for art careers?

Why does anyone think I know anything. `\_:)_/` Not to say I don’t mean everything I typed here, just recognizing that the girl who gets this thinks I’m super weird.

ringokotomi:

Have you ever just looked at someone and thought, “I really love you”. They’re just talking or humming or watching a movie or reading a book or laughing or something, and there’s something about them in that moment that makes you think, “I just really love you”

Yes. I try to say it when this happens because Gloom Balloon told me to
