I’m slipping into a creative black hole

I’m powerless

I can’t produce fast enough

These things I make may not measure up

The art-everything wants me RIGHT NOW

I can’t do it all

I am not a fisherman either

Through art school, I made more writings in my sketchbooks than drawings. I've been making records of art thoughts since 1999. These recordings are from what I remember, and some pieces of what I forgot..
Thanks -Phil
