my heart is breaking
noonewould asked: if you were stranded on a dessert island, what would you want it to be made out of?

aleksandersamuel asked: Do you find the time to play any video games lately? I think you'd appreciate Guacamelee.
I don’t really play video games at all, but lately I’ve been playing a farming game called hay day which is really cute and addictive, the company is a client of ours so half of the office have farms now I love it
Anonymous asked: Do you like to be nude?
I actually don’t at all, I am very uncomfortable about it and I feel like when you sleep naked your limbs all stick together
I do like taking off my pants though that is a good feeling just a tshirt and underwear and socks all day like a toddler
ambling asked: Do you consider yourself an introvert or extrovert?
actually a little of both, I think in general I am emotionally split and my friends would agree. I can be extremely outgoing, I will do ridiculous things in public for no reason. and then I will go home and not talk to anybody for a day and I go to the corner for something to eat and I forget how words work and the cashier just stares at me
realindevelopment asked: you have a great overall vibe man and i hope life is kind to you
thank you! it’s a little bit curated of course but actually I just try to be super honest to the point of over sharing because I think in this post internet whatever phase it’s about real connections instead of #influence and brand engagement. of course it’s still also that.
it’s actually extremely hard being this self-aware you guys
Anonymous asked: how do you stay a positive/lighthearted/encouraging artist when things aren't going great
I don’t, I just try to keep that negativity to myself
I’m a real person so of course there are days when I feel like a ziploc bag full of warm milk dropped on a sidewalk slowly leaking out of my sweatpants, but you just gotta keep your chin up, make some stuff you like, or watch ten episodes of something on netflix until you feel better
a bunch of people on tumblr look to me as “an artist” and “inspiring” but that’s because we are trained to look at others. what I am trying to say is DONT LOOK AT ME because YOU ARE GONNA NOTICE THAT IM KIND OF SHITTY SOMETIMES TOO
continuants asked: hi adamjk! i hope you are having a great day. do you have a favorite artist or art genre?
:) I am having a good day! I’ve been in excruciating pain and wearing my old back brace all week and then today I had an epidural and now my spine doesn’t make me want to die anymore!! :)
I don’t know how to answer that question, I usually hate museums and it’s hard for me to focus in spaces like that. I think I digest art incorrectly. actually I think everything is art. I’m really into a lot of this super meta contemporary stuff that people are doing. I have friends who make amazing stuff and I’m just like “………..”
i will say that I went to Dia:beacon last spring and I had an amazing experience, also god is an amazing artist and I love all His work

I would eat sour patch kids until they killed me (approximately 2 weeks)
Anonymous asked: I'm sorry if you've been asked this before but I thought you were married to a girl?
it’s a long story that makes sense if you know us, my friend sarah jean alexander and I both had siblings get married that summer and we thought it’d be funny so we went to the Baltimore city courthouse and did the paperwork and had a backyard wedding party with all our friends, then went on a “honeymoon” roadtrip.
I still wear my wedding band, but we didn’t mail back the signed form so the thing legally never happened.
