I came home last night and was all fired up to start designing. But since I haven't really done anything lately, I ran into problems immediately (can't spell and you all know it by now). I was blank. No ideas at all. So I started to read and go thru all my magazines and books...but nothing triggered me. So there I was feeling like a complete dumb ass, drowning in magazines and books.
I usually have tons of ideas, but this time I have to get my ass ready for a very important thing. But when I get told what to do...I go blank. For some reason I get stressed and can't function, but this only happens when I have to design something. Others have this problem with everything. I remember in Milano, when I was able to just do anything and was good at doing what I and my friends were doing. I could sit up for two days straight, pimping wine and cigarettes, eating Parma ham and candy like crazy. Then without sleeping for two days and on the third day do a presentation. Those were the days. Maybe I'm just getting older...not really... or I'm just a sorry little designer, who is on a down low. Hahahaha.
But today here at work, I got my grove back (lame I know, very 70s). I managed to plan and design what I needed to do. Thank the karma Gods that the American economy is in the shitters, people aren't calling in as much as they normally would. Funny. It gave me time to acctually do something that I felt was fun! No freakin' clients for the last hour, but very nice designs. I have three things that I have to post tonight, so I'll talk to y'all later!
PS. Last night I just emptied one bottle of champagne just to get me started, but...I fell asleep ;P So much for being productive...hahahah.
