Hey guys. I previously started a collab that had some artwork attached that may be able to be absorbed into this one.
It was about a print I did called 'Small City'. I made it about 8 months after I moved to New York City. It was a reflection on my time here. I arrived in the city, like many who come from a smaller city, with a fair amount of intimidation about what the city had in store for me.
After a while, the excitement... fear... curiosity... all that begins to wear off, and life becomes a bit more normal again. You develop routines, familiarity, regular hangouts, etc. And the realization of all that, for me at least, was odd. It was something I was happy about, to have overcome my initial fear, but I was also a bit down about it because that exciting first kiss with the city was over.
Anyway, so thats the story behind this print. I suspect other people may be able to relate, and not necessarily with New York City specifically, but a move or change in any way...
So that's my story. Feel free to grab anything from the other collab if you see something you like. That collaboration is here: http://hitrecord.org/records/145122
Oh, and my handle is thatsthewayitgoes, but you guys can call me Derek.
