Having a lot of feelings about this. It’s really difficult to put yourself out there in any creative form and to also weather the nastiness of neglect and misunderstanding.
I think social media can be great, but it’s also a regular recipe for false hopes and great expectations that don’t end up being met. It’s a goal of mine to remain more grounded in reality from here on out, where real relationships live.
I love being an illustrator and musician but shit no wonder creatives tend to be sad. Just going to try and continue focusing on gratitude and love for people who show up, routinely support our creative endeavors and actively give a fuck.
All being said, tonight was an awesome experience and I am grateful. Bottom of the Hill was one of my first SF concert venues and I feel so lucky to have played there.
