Stock photographer, abstract artist, feature writer and major heart attack survivor who is getting too old to ride fixie bikes and love French women. However, I have 25 different Tumblr Buzz themes ranging from Arts, Cafés & Nudes to Nikons, Leicas & Volkswagens, all with visually stimulating images. You can also follow me at "Ed Buziak / Fotoformat" on Facebook.

Hello! I’ve created this poster as an announcement that I will not be offering my work to clients that approach me with empty pockets in the future. I did it in the past, mostly after finishing my studies on Illustration, but now I understand that this does not help our profession. I’ve come to the realisation that the best way to practice and promote ourselves is through developing personal projects, creating our own stories and then, why not, edit them ourselves. If customers don’t arrive right away, that’s fine! The key is to draw, draw, draw and create from within ourselves, so that we can give our best out there.
From now on, I’m expecting to receive only paid offers. If none arrives, I should focus on my personal projects, or even drawing under a tree.
I will also limit the time I spend on the internet, as I’ve discovered it absorbs way too much of my time. There is something dark and magnetic going on with social media, something that draws me from my creative process, and I don’t like it at all. From now on, my time here will have a concrete purpose.
I’m sharing this letter just in case someone feels similarly, or gets any inspiration from it. Big hug to everyone!! :)

unravelingsanity asked: i'm glad to know that something within my ramblings is relatable. thank you for the kind words, i appreciate it. i hope you are having a good day today.

Thanks Kavita… I’ve entered my second life having survived a major heart attack in April, after my wife passed away in November. So, a very telling year gets better every day… and so, yes, every day I now have is good. Ed B.

Spatial Concept “Waiting” - Lucio Fontana, 1960.Canvas, 93 x 73 cm, Tate Modern, London. Source.
This is an example of one of Fontana’s Tagli, or ‘cuts’. According to the Tate, these ruptured canvases help to bridge the gap between two- and three-dimensionality. Some of the Tagli feature a painted surface, but this particular one has been left raw and bare.
