They say fall is a time for reflection. The falling leaves, shorter days, and colder nights remind us of the constant changes life brings and just how quickly time can pass. I was recently organizing old H.L.O.S. photos and it made me realize just how much the practice has improved since it’s embarkation.
This was one of the first records I ever painted and damn does it show. Vinyl is still easily one of the most difficult substrates I letter on regularly. Paint pulls into the grooves, modulating the letter form’s edge and the lyrics always seem to have more to say than 12 or 7” circumference wants to allow. But time and missteps have vastly improved the craft and it’s enlightening to see where you started.
So take a cue from fall and reflect on how far you’ve come. Whether it be personally, professionally, or academically, I’m sure you’ll find pride in your progress.
Now back to your regularly scheduled potty mouth. 🚽
