If you missed my first post on busting artists' stereotypes, it's here. I'm already back with part two because I like being able to share all the things about me, even the not so artistic parts.
Today I'm so excited that I'm having trouble focusing on anything. You see, the Kansas City Royals are in the World Series and it starts tonight. My Royals haven't been to a World Series since 1985. I was 9 years old then. I have lots of memories of going to see the Royals as a kid...Frank White, George Brett, Brett Saberhagen, loud fireworks, chocolate malts, and my family.
My twitter feed tells me that as an artist, I'm not supposed to be into sports. So much so, that many of my twitter 'friends' have stated that they unfollow anyone who tweets about sports. Boo! (oh, and I'm not supposed to 'boo' people. In elementary P.E. that would get me sent straight to the principal's office. Look at me breaking all the rules!)
Well too bad twitter friends, I have even more sports news for ya. I love watching football. I love it so much that I play fantasy football. I spend my entire Sunday watching football. And Monday night. And Thursday night. Sometimes I even watch college games on Saturday. I love my Chiefs but I like football so much I'll watch whatever game is on.
So there ya go. I'm good at math. I like sports. And I'm an artist. Isn't being creative about being different anyway? What sets you apart makes you interesting. What artists' stereotypes are you breaking?
You may have noticed a few changes here and there's more to come. As I said in this post, I need to simplify some things in order to have the time for more creative work. Yesterday, I removed the link to my tumblr of related articles and inspiration. The page is still there for now but I won't be updating it anymore. I put all those links in my newsletter each week. If you like the links I share over on there, be sure to subscibe to my weekly newsletter and you won't miss a thing.
