I have a tumblr:

  • In 2012 I started painting on Pokémon cards because I was sad about something and it was a thing to do.
  • As a kid, the illustrations on Pokémon cards were the first time it occurred to me that you could make a living at art.
  • So in that sense they had a lot of formative value to me as a medium.
  • I had been struggling for a while with the notion of how to "brand."
  • And I thought maybe it would be cute to make these little cards and give them out instead of business cards.
  • Most of them came out too pretty, and I would regularly regret giving them out to drunk people at parties.
  • This was my favorite and a friend made me give it to Tim Harrington at some dumb fashion party and I resented her a little for it.
  • We're not even friends anymore.
  • So I stopped making them and kept the ones I had left in my bag in a little card carrying case for a while.
  • Also. some kid got mad at me on tumblr because I tagged this one #softgoth and #lol.
