week 3 topic (sorry I'm catching up)
Living in California has a strong affect on my art. California is its own world, and you can't live here and not be affected by it. Considering the art I've been doing for class, the physical environment has been an influence, the weather and my surroundings, etc. But the things that are down here, like the movie industry, has had an influence on me in small ways. I'm doing work and trying to be original and sometimes panicking because I'm in Los Angeles and everything can be so overwhelming. I've learned that to make it down here you need to focus, and while outside things can affect and influence your art, it's not always a bad thing, as long as you don't let it consume you.
