This was the most imperfect year ever, but that’s ok.
For the first time in my life, I got to live and acknowledge all the insecurities that a young artist can ever encounter when getting into adulthood. First jobs, first deadlines, the first real epic fails and the real-life encounter with pain.
What did I learn from all these setbacks?
Hehe, what I learned is that there is never a right answer to our lives. It is a meander that develops and grows with us. Similar to an airplane setting off from LA to somewhere – the destination and the path that we decide to live in will change and depend on what we do with our actions. Setbacks will be there to challenge us and really make us think deeper of who we are and what we are in this world. Although, for the 99% of the population thy existence does not acknowledge the matter for the 1% is what makes us want to try again and challenge all the nos until finally, we get to the path we all dreamt off. So the setbacks have truly helped me to acknowledge my power and the sheer need to be more, and share more of my goodness.
Where to next?
This blog started off with a mandatory assignment that I had to follow. Although four years ago I did not understand the fullness of this journey, today I feel that I can use this as a way to filter and find answers for my inner self. I want to create more visually compelling work, that I can express these emotions, find the power to touch people and find solace in what I create.
Today it was a huge struggle, I found myself in some dilemma and keeping my threshold high can at times, be a trigger for me to actually feel annoyed and at times upset.
Some things that I should keep in mind to move forward, is that all things that are new can be a huge struggle at first, and Rome was not built in a day, but through small steps I can achieve big heights.
To this I will keep you with a small thought for today. I came from nothing and wherever I’m going I don’t know, the challenge that I have in front of me is something that I have to conquer to move forward for my dream.
Off to challenge myself one more time.

The narrative that I am currently exploring is emerged within the development of a character that is finding struggles within the inner self. The idea behind this narrative is about how this struggle will take this character into places and with some perseverance and obstacles a long the way he will define and transform into realizing the definition and permanence of being in this world.
A very brief synopsis but to some extent this character is still an unfinished development and I am still letting my thoughts breath within this brainstorming.
The visual attempt to this approach is one that is mostly taken within hybrid formation of different media and development. In this manner I would be allowing the definition and understanding of these chaotic thoughts to have their freedom and expressive freedom.
In this work i have explored the mundane and vernacular feel that the initial part of the text alludes. The idea of confide spaces opposing to the limitless possibilities that the other environment provides, shares an important understanding to the way that I wanted this work to evolve in. Through various variants and ideas of how I could handle such a work, I looked into providing the viewer with the uneasiness that the persona feels within such a mundane and mechanical state of living.
In all these illustrations I have worked within providing a clear idea of my reaction to such a work.
