The Security Blanket
“You’re not going to cut my blanket! It’ll bleed!!”
-Linus van Pelt
I get it Linus. Cutting up your sense of security seems crazy. It’s like a part of you is dying within the transformation. You’ll be vulnerable. Lost.
This weekend I removed all of my plane drawings from their sketchbooks and placed them in one 3″ binder in preparation of photographing them for a future coffee table book. These sketch books are time machines and I enjoy looking at them from time to time and recalling moments that define who I am. And who I’ve become.
Cutting up my sketchbooks? Linus, It was anxiety filled to say the least.
I just have to trust that something better is coming out on the other side.
