I’ve had assorted creative projects and blogs over the years, but I’ve often succumbed to various artistic malaises — mostly procrastination and distraction — which usually leads them to fall by the wayside and suffer from neglect.
But over the past few years since I’ve moved to San Francisco, my life has become more stable and my desire to have an consistent outlet for my diverse creative pursuits has grown with each day.
My restlessness finally led me to launch a site can serve as a means of sharing my work and as an archive. Various social networks and Flickr have been the sites where I’ve regularly posted content over the years, but I finally have my own brand-new, shiny website with its own URL. While I’ll continue to post on G+, Twitter and Flickr, plattyjo.com is where I’ll be hosting my original photos, drawings, stories and random thoughts.
For now, I’m just slowly uploading small photo collections curated from past trips, cycling and my personal life. I’ll be adding more pieces over time as I go through my archives and create new stories and visual works.
