They’re back!! No matter how old I am, each time I see fireflies it makes my heart beat faster, just like when I was a kid . I always think that feeling is gone forever and boom, it comes out of nowhere again and again. Kind of cool.
Close friends. My images tend to be fairly straightforward, but
sometimes I think they turn out to be metaphors. like this one... Very
often I feel like I’ve run out of ideas, that I have nothing left to
draw, that I’ve simply lost it( or worse.. I never really “had it”) and I
feel down and just.. kind of let go. And when I do, I relax, and open
myself to totally different experiences ( in this case feeding the
birds) and all of sudden.. ideas come back. But if I try to hard to
catch on, they’ll fly away, like the birds. It’s probably better to just
let the idea come to you and work with it and respect it. Feels like
you never OWN an idea, they just go from window to window, from season
to season and all you can do is hang out with them for a bit, enjoy the
experience and do the best with the time you have with it. If you hang
on too hard to it , you might be stopping other ideas from coming and
you might crush the one you already have. Again.. this is just Monday morning thinking. #pascalcampion
Pop? yes max? I’m sorry I broke the umbrella. It’s ok Max, I’m sorry I got upset with you. I won’t do it again. You
know Max, it’s by doing stuff, trying new things that you learn and you
grow. I don’t want you to stop doing that, just be more careful. Do you regret doing things like that when you were a kid? .... You know, I regret most the things I DIDN’T do then the things I actually did. What does that mean? Its
mean that I’d rather you try things and experience the world and make
mistakes sometimes rather than you never trying anything.. it also means
that I love you a lot. I love you too. #pascalcampion
There is something about slowing down that makes
you think differently and when you think differently your senses pick up
the world around you in a different way and you literally see a whole
new universe of colors and forms and sensations. I use to think the
world was just ONE way but I’m realizing it really is a thousand
different ways #pascalcampion
-I am lost...can you help me?
-I’m lost too...
-I’ve an idea!
-How about if we are lost TOGETHER!
That way, I’d feel less scared.
-wow.. it’s actually fun to be lost together.-yeah..doesn’t really feel like being lost at all!
Somewhere, right now. I’m always thinking that everybody is the hero of his/her own narrative AND a secondary character in someone else’s.. The
idea that incredibly powerful and life changing stories are happening
right now probably just a few moments away from where we are is always
mind boggling to me. #pascalcampion
-.. I love you too Daddy... -..... _ I know, I know.. I will give mommy a big kiss for you. -......
_ I miss you daddy...

parents divorced when I was very young. I remember talking to my dad on
the phone every Sunday night. Most of the time it was fine, but
sometimes I just missed him terribly. Nothing that my mom could do about
it. Now my dad is passed away and I’m a grown up.. but I still miss that call on Sundays.
Compartment. I was trying something different here, AND I was
planning on doing some animations with this.. but I can’t figure out how
to animate in Photoshop properly.. if anyone has links to good
tutorials.. I’d love them!
-Trying a different style?
-Yup...what do you think?
- I like it.. it’s different... and you keep making me too dark.
-Ah... I just need to practice, that’s all.
-.. I know, I know.. you have to allow yourself to not be as good in order to learn something new.. I know...
-..Wait..did I say that already?
- You did.. By the way, there is something else that you could try to work on so you could grow that skill too.
-.... Oh yeah.. what is it?
- Oh yes.. it’s called.. doing the dishes!
