When it comes to Creative work + Power/Money…
I’ve learned not to share ideas or concepts with anyone until they’re done and you have a platform to present them to the world, even if the ideas include the people you want to share them with.
Most of the time people with power and money lack ideals and creativity. They’ll suck you dry until your idea is weak and reap all the benefits.
Its better to have them pursue you, be it for legal action or for a collaboration. I’d rather get a cease and desist or go through the legal action, than watch my perfect idea poorly executed and benefited from without any recognition or compensation.
This is coming from a place of much experience with these type of situations.

I’m regaining my passion for all things. Fucks are being given, but in all the right places. For the last 2.5 years everything has been such a blur to me. I’ve been doing things because I’m good at them or because I can. I’ve not put any heart or passion into anything in a while. I just haven’t felt the need to. Things are changing….
I’m finally back to the point where I care. I care about how my future goes, I care about how my brands do. I care about putting out quality product and growing to be better. I care about relationships I have with people and fans of my work. I still don’t give a fuck about a lot of things I should but its a process.
I’ve been operating in IDGAF mode and still able to keep doing things I think are great, but imagine how much further I could be or how much more I could accomplish if I was as passionate as I used to be.
This may be a temporary thing that I’m feeling, but at least now I can finally say I am Feeling…something.
A lot of people have asked me about tumblr and if I had one. They asked me for a follow back. I’m one of those “I Remember Tumblarity” kids, so naturally I say I don’t have one or send them to my art blog. (http://mcfreshcreates.carnivour.us). [troll] It wasn’t until recently that I felt bold enough to share the most truthful representation of what I think about and what inspires me to the world. (http://deathofadesigner.tumblr.com)
What surprised me was it was something that people really enjoyed and wanted to follow. Its definitely not for everyone (Nudity etc) so that’s issue 1. Issue 2 is By it being something really dear to me and something that I do for myself to keep myself inspired and working, I neglect a few things that make social networks cool…Actually being social.
So Here’s my attempt at filling the void and being social. I promise no nudity this time (maybe) lol
