It started with several harrassing emails from my boss telling me I should start a blog. And so, exactly a year ago today, I started shape+colour not really knowing where it would go or what would happen. I never would have thought that, 450 posts later, shape+colour would evolve into such an important part of my life: I’ve met so many crazy and inspiring people from all around the world, had the thrill of talking to some of the artists I’ve blogged about, been sent so many cool messages out of the blue, and experienced an incredible thrill over sharing, at the end of the day, basically whatever I think is beautiful.
To everyone that comes here and reads shape+colour, I want to say thanks. We may not all know each other by name, but wherever you are in the world, if you’ve been here more than once, I’m hoping it’s because we share the love and desire, curiousity and amazement, and never-ending possibilities that lie within our collective drive to create and experience art together. And that is pretty fucking awesome.
I’ve got some goodies in store for 2009. Thanks for being here for the beginning.
