Last year I participated in a hashtag driven challenge started by local artist and acquaintance Matt Plett. He dubbed it #creative30for30. It challenged all participants to get creative and complete something each day. Last year was super hard for me. I never felt like I was keeping up or giving my best. I still didn’t this year, but I did do more than was required. I did all 31 days of July even though the challenge only calls for 30 days. I did more than one thing on several days, and not as a means of making up time. The culmination of it all was an audition. It was also meant to include a stand-up set, but the show was cancelled. Here are my additions for this year’s challenge in, as best as I can muster, order. Some times I didn’t post anything because I wrote jokes or worked on a now cancelled project. But work was put in every day. I’m not proud of every piece, but I am proud that every day I put the work in.
Floyd and Animal are recreations of previous projects that I’d given away. I wanted the whole band back together again.
The above was preparation for this.
