‘I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan- like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion. For most men, it appears to me, are in a strange uncertainty about it, whether it is of the devil or of God, and have somewhat hastily concluded that it is the chief end of man here to “glorify God and enjoy him forever.’
Thoreau, Walden (1854; selections)
madeorganic asked: Not sure if you got my last message. Wanted to know how difficult it was to get your work noticed although I suppose it helped working alongside Foals. Could you take a look at my work and give me some feedback if there's anything I could add to enhance any qualities and any advice to go to the next stage with my artwork etc. Cheers
Hi there sorry I did get your previous message. I read all of my messages I just dont get a lot of free time at the moment.
Its very difficult to get noticed, im not sure how noticed I am still!? But FOALS obviously helped. But we built it all up together and it took a long time. Also i dont know how it looks from the outside but i dont really have very much money.
Your work- its good but i think you need to concentrate on doing some drawing also, maybe add photo elements to your work? atm its quite pattern based but if thats what your after then do it! it definately shows promise! i wish you luck in your future career.
Big love x
