happy mistakes


You know, sometimes, most of the time the things we try to do in life, the things we are hoping for, the things we work for, they don't work out the way we want them to.

Ink gets spilled like blood and tears, paper gets torn like dreams and hearts, and things get shitty. Really shitty, and sad. But if there's one thing I've learned from my years of living and art making, it's that sometimes a mistake turns out to be exactly what you need and you learn from it, or, in art anyway, you try to do it again because it looks so damn good.

It's the happy mistakes that make masterpieces.
