Above is Cowboy and below Doc Jay…only Animal Mother to go now and I’ve got all eight of the guys on those two fateful missions. It’s been good to discipline oneself through the deadline of the opportunity to show. I’ve always been sluggish in seeking opportunities to show work and rather relied on what’s come up fairly naturally through contacts, work etc. as I move into old age I’m beginning to see that it’s not just ambition that drives some artists but these deadlines that force you to resolve things that might otherwise simply kick around the studio. Of course the converse can be true too…with stuff being pushed out before it’s good and ready…but if you get it right it increasingly strikes me as a positive rather than a negative.
