Sean Alexander

source, coyote source

I came a cross Sean Alexander's drawings one day. It was the coyote that caught my eye on pitch design union blog. I tried to find out more about him but when I went to his website, it looked like he deleted all his work. One page was titled "Talk to the Hand" with a picture of his hand and it said, "Erasing. Will post new work if I feel like drawing again".  Now I can't even find that page. I could be mistaken as there are a lot of Sean Alexanders out there on the web but I think this is the guy who made these drawings. In a way I kind of feel like him, I want to erase everything...my facebook, my blog, twitter...everything. I don't really know his story but for me I feel like being online presents a false reality with pressure to keep the online reality alive by posting everything I'm doing in reality so my online reality can keep going. At the same time, being online allows me to access so many talented and creative people which allows me to glean images for inspiration and ideas. It's a double edged sword really. How to strike a fine balance between being online and offline. I guess the question is what is really important? I think I choose real life. I want to live for the sake of living and not for my online reality.    

Will post more if I feel like posting again.

I can't believe this post exists...

I am going through the difficult/unenthusiastic process of putting my website back up right now, so it was a really interesting read.

The internet breaks my heart. Again and again.

Big ups from a stranger.
