ERIKA:

Ladies and Gents, please let me introduce you to an amazing fashion designer Lorena Saravia who is based in Mexico City.   

Such is life.
Sometimes you don’t know how much you ask for something until you have it and your heart stops aching because you have arrived.
I admit lately I dress like a bum. I haven’t shopped for clothes in ages, I have put all my money into classes, art supplies and upgrading my workstation. 
This makes me happy, I can stay for years in this tiny space of the world. 
I paint and draw and obsess about it.
It doesn’t matter if I’m good or not. 
The thing is I’m better than yesterday.
I’m learning about color with Sabina Radeva. 
I had been eyeing her classes since this summer. They are pricey but I was very lucky to win a spot in her Color Workshop and it’s one of the best classes I’ve taken. For someone who knows nothing, nothing, nothing about color, this is amazing.
I just completed my first assignment and I’m so pleased with it. 
I’m learning several things at once, as usual, I’m in a hurry, as usual, I’m obsessed, as usual and in danger of burning myself out trying so hard and feeling like I make no progress. 
I will have to discard some stuff. 
I’m never good at renouncing.

If I look around me, not much has changed.

Scattered Forever

I began Je Suis Éclectique as a side-project to learn a static site generator.

What started as another website to maintain and without knowing what I could do with it, it’s slowly documenting my process from no drawing to drawing and to wherever that takes me.

I started it as a home for a book I’m writing but it’s turning into something a little out of what I normally do. 

I realized how many people are stuck in the “someday” mindset. 

I realized that my pinboard with “things I would like to learn” would be yet another testimony of the damage of information overload, the self-defeat…

In a completely different tone of voice, calmer, I write down the process, the trials, the errors and I document how I learn. 

I want to nudge those people who are stuck in a place where they think they can’t create or can’t make art into a place where an hour or an hour and half a day makes a huge difference.

Nobody has time for “someday”. Either you do it now or you discard it.

For this I opened an Instagram account.
