At the risk of sounding incredibly pretentious,
my creative process
is affected by the
following tenets:

  1. Trust your intuition.
  2. The indomitable human spirit will survive.
  3. There is good in humanity.
  4. There is evil in humanity.
  5. There is a neutral force in humanity.
  6. Art is inherently political.
  7. Do good in this world simply for good’s sake.
  8. Everyone and everything makes art.
  9. The Altogether Beautiful resides in all creatures
  10. We all search for solutions elsewhere when we already have the answers.
  11. New life and death reside in us all.
  12. Nothing matters therefore everything matters.
  13. Escapism is a double-edged sword held by the blade.
  14. There are people in this world that can change.
  15. There are people in this world that will never change.
  16. Your mind doesn’t tell you the truth.
