I am sometimes aware that ooh la lapin can be a tad shall we say ‘girlie’.

“I think that I’m getting to that point where I’m starting to wonder what those other things I do are,” Vernon says gently. “And I’m really wanting to round it out a little bit. But then I also think ‘Isn’t this what unmeetable joy is like? Where you just do what you want all the time?’
Austin Stephens is one handsome guy, I love him because he has made a career out of what he loves (skating), he is a lesson in motivation!
on a day-to-day basis, it’s just going out and skating. There’s not a responsibility. I don’t have to check-in with anyone. It’s up to me, basically, to self-motivate and make sure I’m productive and finding spots or calling up photographers. Working on interviews for magazines, things like that. Sometimes it’s just, “yea, I might skate today” or you don’t have to.
Love the illustration work of Adam Hayes, please do check out his blog Today is a Good Day, his text work in particular I adore.
