To-Do List

Being a clumsy artist with a type-A personality is a confusing combination that often gets me in trouble. As an overachiever and perfectionist, I obsess over details and have a naive hope that I can make everything go perfectly. This can be seen best in my notebooks. I make regimented, repetitive, organized lists assuming I have complete control. This of course is never true and I instead chronically spill coffee, burn things, and splatter the paint on new white clothes. This piece is about the contradiction between being an artist who makes mistakes and the robot I try to be.
