Just downloaded the Frenden Real Photoshop Pencil brushes and they really are amazing. They work perfectly in Photoshop CC 2014 on my Surface, btw.

Healing my relationship with food - Part 1: The apology

I think anyone who has been concerned with their weight has to admit that they have a problem with food. Call it a bad habit, or maybe an addiction —all i know is that my relationship with food has always been a tough one.

Unlike most people I have to think about food more than I’d like to. I have to analyze every bite I take and plan how much medication that I need for each morsel of food.

It sucks. 

Now that I am 30, I feel the effects of aging a little more quickly that my peers that are not diabetic. I know that I will probably also have a thyroid problem when I’m older…which is getting closer and closer. I know that being overweight is something that runs on both sides of the family. But I also know it’s something that can be overcome with hard work. It doesn’t have to be my fate. 

I joined Weight Watchers about six weeks ago. I have been losing weight. But this last week I gained some back. [In case you couldn’t tell, this post is my pep talk for getting back on track.] Although I thought I stayed relatively within my Points budget for the week, I admit that I opted for the non-vegetable food groups more. Oh, what a difference.

I’m sorry I abandoned you, vegetables. It’s difficult to live with you 100% of the time, but I’m getting used to it. I promise I won’t stray as far next time.

I forgot Donald Duck was quite a womanizer back in the day.

Summer surf ladies

*yes, this is a repost of my work…had to delete the original post.*

I challenged myself to make five 15-minute sketches in one week. I chose “surfer ladies” as my topic. Gets me in the mood for some beach time (FYI I do not surf).

I did things in my 30s that were ignored by the world, that could have been quickly labeled a failure. Here’s a classic example; in 1974 I did a movie called Phantom of the Paradise. Phantom of the Paradise, which was a huge flop in this country. There were only two cities in the world where it had any real success: Winnipeg, in Canada, and Paris, France. So, okay, let’s write it off as a failure. Maybe you could do that.

But all of the sudden, I’m in Mexico, and a 16-year-old boy comes up to me at a concert with an album - a Phantom of the Paradise soundtrack- and asks me to sign it. I sign it. Evidently I was nice to him and we had a nice little conversation. I don’t remember the moment, I remember signing the album (I don’t know if I think I remember or if I actually remember). But this little 14 or 16, whatever old this guy was… Well I know who the guy is now because I’m writing a musical based on Pan’s Labyrinth; it’s Guillermo del Toro.

The work that I’ve done with Daft Punk it’s totally related to them seeing Phantom of the Paradise 20 times and deciding they’re going to reach out to this 70-year-old songwriter to get involved in an album called Random Access Memories.

So, what is the lesson in that? The lesson for me is being very careful about what you label a failure in your life. Be careful about throwing something in the round file as garbage because you may find that it’s the headwaters of a relationship that you can’t even imagine it’s coming in your future.
