#37 Have A Dream. Make It Real.

Life is short.  Have a dream. Make it real.  Don’t tell me you don’t have a dream. Everybody has one.  I have heard a lot of friends tell me how lucky I am to have a certain “talent” and a dream.  They tell me that as “normal” people who can’t draw, sing, or act, it’s very hard for them to even think of something to aspire for.  “I don’t know what to do with my life” is how they put it.

Right after highschool that was the same question that bothered me.  I ended up taking a course that I was clueless about although I don’t regret taking it.  I was already in junior year when I really told myself that I wanted to be an artist, an illustrator and a fashion designer.  But here’s the big realization:  There really isn’t a lot of difference whether you’ve set yourself a goal or not.  Some people set goals and never attain it.  Many visions remain just as it is.  What some of my friends don’t realize is, as “boring” and “meaningless” they feel their lives are, it is in much ways better than mine, or someone else’s.  God knows how much I envy my friends and their immature boyfriends, their psycho girlfriends, their homophobic dads, etc etc etc…

I have a dream.  Im working on it.  For now my sketches make them real.  Soon it will be further realized… it’s just a matter of time… just like everyone else’s dreams.

This is a snapshot of my dream…

* Today’s sketch is an illustration of Gareth Pugh’s Spring 2010 collection. His designs are not as glamorous as Balmain or Dior but they always manage to influence the next big trend.  Someday I’ll be doing that, but for now a feature illustration in Vogue will do. 🙂
