It's time to bring back the fun into the creative process
to stop being the wise old adult all the time
to reclaim the kid inside of me ( and us )
and so much more
To really feel ALIVE!
I picture myself reading my own stories, from my book(s), intercut with shots of my hands working on illustrations ( drawing, painting and lino carving, inking ) and then, sharing this process on the blockchain.
The videos will last as long at it takes me to read my story or not ( I won't make any rules and if I would, I aim as break as many of them as I can, every single time )
I also see myself talking to fellow creatives and friends on the creative process while they either work on their craft or show it in any way possible ( reading fragments from their finished or unfinished books, playing the guitar or any other instrument, singing, rapping, beatboxing, painting, illustrating, dancing, juggling, clowning* and so on and so forth ).
I am done with just sharing my own creative process ( although I will keep doing that too ), it's time to spread the love to fellow creatives and co-creators in a more active way.
THE TIME IS NOW.
And then I went on a walk and read my first story, afterward and made this rough cut, that is also kind of meant as a teaser to get you interested in my book ( if you weren's already one of my fan boys or fan girls ).
I decided that I want to give away ( as much of ) my first book as much as possible, even though a bunch of you already told me that they want to buy it from me for the amazing price of 22 ( my favorite number ) Hive or HBD.
TO BE CONVINUED...
*Talking about clowning. I discovered a very enjoyable series, a month or so ago on exactly that subject. It's called 'Baskets' and tells the story of Chip Baskets ( aka Baskets the clown ) and his polar opposite, his ( not so ) identical twin brother, Dale. Both brothers are played by the same actor, Zach Galifianakis, who had his breakthrough in The Hangover ( 2009 ), a movie that I forgot soon after I watched it in cinema.
Chip and Dale ( pronounce as... )
They also have two DJ-ing ( adopted? ) identical twin brothers who basically live their own lives - while the other twins ( Chip and Dale ) find themselves stuck at their mother's house, over and over again, eventhough they are in their mid 40s. Big momma ( hen ) is played by the amazing comedian Louis C.K., who passed away at the start of this year, 2022. And then there's the very dry ( funny in her own way ) sidekick, Martha, played by Martha Stewart and some other more or less likeable characters. I think it helped that I didn't know any of the cast members, when I started watching this. Aside from that it's just very funny, an awesome blend of comedy and drama, just how I like it with pretty strong acting.
