Today is an incredible day.
For the past two years Colossal has been written and published in coffee shops, at dining room tables, on couches, in restaurants or hotels, and once from a fishing boat in the Gulf of Alaska. I’ve written a handful of articles from the passenger seat of a car, one from a CTA train car, and few while in flight. Because of my full-time job, work on Colossal started hours before the sun rose, as I poured entire pots of coffee on myself with barely enough consciousness to muster the thought: LOOK AT THIS THING. For 30 months Colossal was never edited from a normal desk during “business” hours.
As of now, that changes. I’m stupidly excited to announce that Colossal has grown enough that it now supports my family. Today, for the first time, I begin editing full-time. This abundance of time will let me focus on regular daily updates as well as a clogged pipeline of new projects and collaborations that will roll out over the next few months. Thanks to everyone who has clicked, tweeted, bookmarked, emailed or otherwise shared links from this blog, it’s because of you this is all possible.
OF NOTE: One of the main reasons Colossal exists is through limited advertising in partnership with Nectar Ads, an ad network for the visual arts. If you’re at all interested in getting your company, gallery, or event in front of millions of artists, photographers, and designers, please get in touch.
