This is a story that was heavily inspired by David Lynch, so hear it from him. “…If they give you the right to make the film, they owe you the right to make it the way you think it should be. The filmmaker should decide on every single element, every single word, every single sound, every single thing going down that highway through time. Otherwise it won’t hold together. The film may suck, but at least you made it suck on your own.”
Somewhere around March at the beginning of quarantine in Hungary, a friend and I started to read Infinite Jest.

I had the idea of the first illustration to create long before it has arrived. I read a drama by one of my favourite contemporary Hungarian poets (Je suis Amphitryon by […]
Last week I wrote about putting together a list of the things that define me. I was in a really bad mood yesterday, so to absorb my negative energies I started to make a visualization out of it. I don’t think this could get any more personal, so I can only say: Hey, there! This is […]
Last week I finally received Mari Andrew’s book (not sure to mark it as treasure or golden), Am I there yet? and it got me thinking a lot about myself. There’s a section where Mari listed the things that define her and I sat down with a pen and a notebook to collect all the stuff […]
