The creative role...
Stay true to who you are. Why would you change for others?
Reinventing oneself, an endless rain.
👋 Hello enthusiast, how are you doing today?
The creative power to stay true to who you are and not change for others.
For several years, I have been told my work is diverse and multi-faceted. I used to think it was a problem but I let go of that etiquette and kept on creating following my intuition and hunches. Everything I create and make tangible has a common ground: my intention is always constant.
Traits are repeatedly associated with my work, and I have made peace with how my work is perceived today. I am glad my projects move forward and exist no matter their pace. I value each one of them at each stage: idea, concept, creation, making, and feedback in the hands of people.
I cannot undervalue the work that has helped me be who I am today. I am even more motivated because what I create today will birth an evolved creative.
As a creative entrepreneur, do not change for others, mature and grow for yourself. Your body of work speaks as a whole and each of your projects, business ideas, and ventures speaks within a whole. All of them led you here: to who you are today.
Mindful Sunday vibes 🌞
Coup de cœur typo: Mat Voyce

It is just a joy to watch his animations and positive messages. Viva typo!
