I'm switching sides. Sorry Minneapolis you have too much hustle and bustle for me. I'm going to your twin, the nice older St. Paul. Where it is greener (for now), and much more quiet.
Bonus: I found this old illustration in the closet, its been in there for many years. I used to hate looking at it, now I see it with older eyes. A much younger artist with a lot more ambition. I need to capture that spirit again.
Hopefully with a whole new room dedicated to my art will help. I've been creating art the last two and half years in a space which is essentially the dinning room of my apartment. It kind of throws off the mojo so to speak.
The coming Fall/Winter really helps my work ethic here in Minnesota. There is really not much else to really do... then to hunker down and create.
