Great times in NYC

1 07 2010

So my time in New York has ended and I had a lot of fun. I couldn’t stress that enough actually. Being in NYC gave me an extra amount of energy and excitement. I find that I am really influenced by the environment I’m in, I wish I had control over that but I have none. I need to be inspired, every now and then I need a muse and there’s none greater than New York City. The cool thing about it is that inspiration here comes at every corner. The amount of crazy stuff I’ve seen here in this last week alone is insane, just the other day I saw a midget pissing on the street under full 5PM daylight at 6th av. Later in the weak I saw a woman at Washington Square Park walking, not a dog, but a pig. Right now pianos have appeared in places like Lower East Side and Bedford for people to play, and so they do. That’s pretty awesome I think. Places like Lower East Side, Washington Square Park, Bedford Av, SoHo and many others were part of quite a lot of my days. I hope all of that spilled into my work and made it a little better (except for that midget’s urine).

I feel like my work at the school in Brooklyn was really great and I have improved a lot. My focus wasn’t so much on art direction this time around, it was all about concepting and that’s absolutely fine with me. Those skills were sharpened thanks to some really great teachers. Luckily we also got to execute our best ideas and I got work for the portfolio. Hopefully it will continue like this in Chicago and I’ll have a great bulk of work by the end of this second year at MAS. In Chicago I will be attending the greenhouse at Draft FCB and I’ll have two classes at Y&R. I’m excited about it and hopefully I will get good work as well as some good parties too.

My intention is to come back to NYC on the last quarter and end it all here. If that doesn’t happen then at some point I’ll be back and reclaim this city once again for even greater times to come.
