Day 10: 30 days of, you know, so here's the truth.

Today I did this:

Like a overweight football fan I painted my eye. Not to support a team with my fleshy brightly hued body, but to be creative for 30 Days of Creativity.

No, that's a lie. I did it not just for the innocent soul of creativity but to try to get listed as a highlight on 30 Days of Creativity. Everyday the website lists about 15-20 'highlights' of the previous day. Everyday I look for mine and so far, nothing. I want to be a highlight. I want the attention and recognition that the weird stuff I make is something too. (Look, insecurity, the mask slips, I am a honest person! Awards all around!!!). I like being noticed (see this self-centered blog post.

I like attention. I know it. I have a Twitter account and a blog. 

So I painted myself. For attention.

The photo above is sort of artsy, I thought people might think I took a photo of a dancer before an emotional emoting movement piece.

But it's my eye

and below my eye was a dinosaur.


Sad, weird clown am I.

You should have submitted the dinosaur! It's adorable, plus it makes your cheekbones less sapphic (no such thing as gay dinosaurs. Or maybe that's why they died out? Gay comet?)

But I like your mysterious eye photo too. Way to try to beat them at their own game.
