This is my little slice of the internet where I can show what I do, I hope you like it. :)
When you’re lying in your death bed, will you look back on your life and say you did what made you happy, you took the opportunities, and you did what you loved and wanted to do most?
Looking forward on that point I don’t really know what I will think, all I know is that following the path I’m on now, it will lead to a 9-5 job where my creative side will wither away to a shadow of its former self.
So much so that today I’ve even been looking at different career paths. the practical side of me is saying ‘this is your second year at university, your committed to this now, it’s too late to drop out and change’ and my heart is saying ‘you have so much more to give this world than a string of meaningless numbers, don’t waste yourself on something someone else could just as easily do.’
Looking at some of the most successful people in the world today and and people who have been, they have taken the biggest risks, they have gone into the future not knowing, going out on a whim and following what they love to do the most and they got it right. But the question is, do you take the risk?
All I can say is that the course I’m on now is adequate.
And that is what is making me worry. Do I want to look back and say yes, my life has been okay, it’s been alright, and it’s been adequate?
Of course not, I want to work towards building something I can be proud of and say ‘Yes, I gave it my all and what a ride it was.’ I want to feel alive while I’m still alive. I don’t want to sit at a desk and put numbers into equations repeatedly day after day.
I’ll leave you with a quote from Steve jobs which has really struck a nerve in me, because I realise that the answer has been no for far too many days now.
‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do today? And whenever that answer has been no for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.’ - Steve jobs
I’m Lewis, I’m 19 and Live in England and hopefully this will be the start of something Awesome in our relationship. I intend to share my work, thoughts, processes, Inspirations and anything I can come up with. I’m one of those creative soules who appretiates the little things and I say Awesome waaay too often… or maybe not enough.
I like what I do and I create because its fun, I try not to take my creative side too seriously so as you might see with a lot of my works, some will be damn right bizzarr, some will be clever and some might get you thinking a bit.
I’ve recently bought a Wacom Tablet, this is one of those things when it arrives, you think ‘F**k Yeah!’ I’ll be creating with this pretty soon so watch this space. We’ll see what I come up with in the next few months :).
