The changes had me

The changes had me wondering about things I never had to stress too much about, like how I was going to get food from the supermarket, pay bills, stay safe during the madness. Kaer 20 Montana Cans Lockdown on lock

12 “Los Angeles had its waves of lockdowns and curfews that were implemented. Painting has been a sort of push and pull situation. Mostly due to the fact that I have a family of my own and am the head of household who is responsible for holding shit down for five people. So, in the beginning, we were being super careful about everything we did. As time went on, the confusion progressed. And being sort of a street person, so to speak, being home for long periods of time, really took a toll,” Kae continues. “The uncertainty of what was coming was very confusing.” All of a sudden, Wane wondered how to organize everyday basics, “the biggest struggle was not necessarily having to stay home, but the uncertainty around some of the most basic things we were all so used to. The changes had me wondering about things I never had to stress too much about, like how I was going to get food from the supermarket, pay bills, stay safe during the madness. But perhaps most importantly, it had me wondering when I would see my friends and family again.” What once was normal apparently changed into something challenging. LaFranz continues to emphasize the lack of external stimulus: “Without being able to travel and to paint with your friends, and without all the events and Graffiti jams, it’s hard to feel always inspired. I do not live in a big city, so it was not so easy.” In lockdown periods, new routines had to be established. Former variety exchanged for monotony. On the contrary, time, which is usually scarce, was not a limiting factor anymore. So, how to turn all of this around and regain confidence? Without being able to travel and to paint with your friends, and without all the events and Graffiti jams, it’s hard to feel always inspired.
