Lived in Japan, traveled through Alaska and even spent six month in Denmark, but it doesn’t thrill me Half as much as collecting cutting and gluing newspaper cuts for a new illustration or a doll.
Loved the studies period and excited to study more, find the Internet a great place for being updated, but the real world is when I am going outside, talking with people, sharing a new idea, taking a good sandwich or a chocolate dessert and sitting with my friend in the park.
Some days are good, some are better.
If I am deep in a working process I don’t mind both.
