Farewell… and hello there.

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

Hello friends,

It has been almost a year since I last posted on here, I had a lot to figure out in that time and while It has been a wild ride, things have started falling into place quite nicely. In the past year my family life took a wild turn into an unknown dark place where we quickly moved on from as soon as we figured out a few things. Dark places are never fun but sometimes a visit to them is necessary to realize what you are missing in those warm, well-lit places. I am happy to say my wife, daughter, and I are doing great, stronger than ever and making up ridiculously silly songs almost daily.

Not only was my personal life suffering but so was my work. I was in a stale, unmotivated place in life where I was making almost nothing new, that I was stoked on, for long stretches at a time. So I quit my day job a couple months ago and started working out of my studio. I call it The Kevin Munoz Studio. Here I am able to make stuff for clients and for personal pleasure. I also get to practice shadow puppets for as long as I want without anybody telling me not to!

In other news, a few months ago, I dusted off my old 35mm SLR cameras and have started taking pictures of things, people, and places around me. I am addicted to shooting those beautiful old minolta cameras just as I was nearly 10 years ago before they became bookends. This town is filled with so many amazing people and things to take pictures of. I sometimes feel like a curator of a grand art show or exhibit that everybody/everything is a part of. To view a little bit of that show click here.

I have started a new blog which you can find on my new website and I will not be updating this blog any longer. I hope to make what it was initially supposed to be, a growing collaborative art project instead of my personal blog.

All in all, I don’t think I have ever been happier than I am right now. I learned a valuable lesson and that is that life can get really fucked up and the best thing to do is communicate with others, especially those close to you.

Thank you all for the support. Again, you can visit my new website here which the wonderful Renee Fernandez helped me set up. Also, feel free to email me, I’d love to hear from you.

Stay swell,
Kevin Muñoz
