New Chapter by Darius Frank

I have begun conception in a series of seminal works, depicting those closest to me, in idealized scenes of my own make. At a creative precipice, I have found myself looking to learn everything one can in the design field. The determination to meet that goal has also motivated me to create work that means more to me. The pursuit of knowledge and personal fulfillment has me turning over a new leaf. Finding hope in what I create, now that I am truly creating with no other purpose than to create. 

leaving social media in the way that I have, I find myself making things, for me and less for content on one of many social media outlets. It’s a nasty habit I have come to find out a little late in my opinion. But an issue I am looking to fix. So with that, I’ll be posting more in progress posts and explaining my process and generally musing as I have been. I’ll just be doing it with a little more zeal.

My childhood pact involved becoming something huge in my early 20's so I die an enviable tragedy by 27.

Did You See That? by Darius Frank

I find it a treat when an artist is that transparent. My laziness won't allow me to contribute to such an endeavor, regularly. With the invention of social media, we get this look into artist's process. Without noticing, we take for granted this insightful offering. When you watch an artist talk, or explain on IG story. When you see someone cry on snapchat. Whenever you watch a vlog on Youtube of a figure workshopping new material. That should be cherished.

Starting Life Crisis by Darius Frank

Just fucking get over it. You're older, not old. You're not dead, just dying. Work harder, smarter, faster, and more often. Create to have something to leave behind. Remember that though being young was fun, you wouldn't have gotten here, without the subsequent years in which you found yourself aging.
