I'm having such a great time making these jackets for our brand, Young Denham. Every time I make one there's this funny moment for me once I've completed the jacket. I find myself thinking "Oh wow, that actually looks good!" because I'm so used to making abstract art all the time that I forget that I can make representational work too. And I think because I'm making these for other people, the stakes are a little bit higher. It doesn't matter if I don't make a good painting when I'm just working on art for myself, but it's a whole other thing to make a jacket for someone else that I have to make sure I don't screw up. So each time I make one, I feel like I'm conquering this little fear I have in my heart and that feels pretty good.
