I’ve noticed that the majority of my ambitions seem to be so strange or just impossible to most people, but I have this weird thought at the back of my head that says, “Dude, you can do all of these things AND more!”
There are a few things that I like to do, being music, writing, drawing, working out, etc. So naturally the following would be rational dreams for those interests, but then there are others…
- draw for the Sunday paper
- make a name for myself in the literature and musical worlds
- be a fitness trainer
- own and run a bakery
- go on a walkabout in Africa
- be 100% self-sufficient
The other day, my boyfriend had a grocery list with things he wanted to get and to make things interesting I drew little funny pictures next to his items. For shredded cheese, I drew an electric guitar made of swiss cheese. That sort of thing.
So today I was looking up my favorite cartoonist so I might be able to find something new to get me back in the groove of writing and possibly start a little something, something online. I found out he had a new (ish) book for cartooning and immediately I got on amazon and bought it. It’s the first thing I’ve bought in a long time if you exclude groceries.
I plan on getting a sketchbook and dedicating some time to practicing and creating characters then putting them on photoshop, editting them and posting them to deviantart or something. It’s been a long time since I’ve dedicated any time to drawing, but when I’ve got something in my head nothing stops me.
