More on Catalog #2:
Not only does the catalog provide a snapshot of interesting discoveries, donations, acquisitions, thoughts and ideas, it provides a comparison point, a kind of yardstick to look at how things are progressing. The short video, above, provides that juxtaposition of then and now. The SWANS not-approved Allen Jaeger Jr proof in the top right hand corner of the page in the first catalog provides a reference point. To the left and below there is basically, nothing except the Pigface Welcome To Mexico tapestry reproduction. I love this huge piece. It is one of several I want to see displayed in full at some point – but over the time since the first catalog, Ministry, Revco, KMFDM, Pigface, NiN, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult and more have just overtaken the wall like the after part of a cautionary ad warning of the dangers of invasive species in your garden.
For myself, it gives me that 1970’s Newport Cigarette ad – warm fuzzy glow as I say to myself ‘you’ve come a long way baby.’
Reflection is good, (especially now as I slowly recover from hip surgery and can’t do much more than that) yardsticks are good. Especially in these creative business endeavors riddled with doubt, hype, more self doubt, risk, adrenaline, stress and the ever present imposter syndrome. Incremental, bootstrap growth is good but, when you are in it, it can feel imperceptible – like watching facial hair grow – you don’t see it until someone sends you the before pic.
