So you’ve reached that goal in your creative endeavours and you’re wondering, “What now?”
I realized I’ve asked myself this, about two years ago, when I reached a feat on a professional level and wanted to pursue something more challenging–that’s when TRIM came into the picture. A year went into planning and saving up until I finally tackled my doubts and fears and leapt into the unknown: creative freedom. This didn’t come cheap; many hours of labour, financial backing and moral support helped secure TRIM’s foundation. After a year-and-a-half of working as its creative director, I feel I’m back at the starting point again asking the same question.
I found that the best cure to my internal conflict was not to focus on eliminating my doubts but rather, focus on other individuals and their stories. So I began communicating with people…The meetings happened and then the ideas flowed in, then finally: the drive was there! I didn’t need to solve this myself, the answer came to me through conversations, questions and laughter with peers.
Today, I met with Joy Yiu, a cute-as-a-button Vancouver blogger. We had coffee and indulged in a brief drawing frenzy. We shared our love for design and publications, one of which is Acne Paper. To top it off, there was plenty of discussions about life, dreams and passion. Oh yes, all those cheesy stuff! But you know what? Cheese is good. My tank is almost full and I’m eager for a run…
Who’s up for TRIM Phase Two?!
