Jonathan Adler is my hero.

Exhibit A: Excerpt from Stacy Wichelhaus’ (of Hello Cupcake) interview featured on Papernstitch.

SW: Did you ever have a moment early on in your career where you were asked yourself “what the heck am I doing”?

JA: Every day. Every single day. I can’t count the number of times I would just lie in the fetal position on the bed. The numbers of screw ups that have happened over the course of my career are of such monumental scale and capacity. I’ve had so many of those terrible moments. I think doing your own thing, especially when it’s as weird a thing as a creative business, it’s a preposterous undertaking and you have to be slightly delusional and you need to fully believe that something as crazy as what you’re trying to do can work even though there is a possibility that it may not. You need to be incredibly resilient and hard working. But don’t take yourself too seriously and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. I wish people weren’t as hard on themselves as I was on myself.

(Read the whole interview here. It’s worth it.)

Exhibit B: F*** it and giant brass bananas. (I almost wrote it as ‘f*** giant brass bananas’ but realized that it might not be read the way I intend) This video is amazing and must be watched. Must be watched. Must.
