Hi yah kawaii + creative family!
Recently, I’ve been exploring my love for and interest in Japanese culture. It has sent me on a fantastically crazy journey of understanding what I would like to see for my future growth as I merge my career, interests & hobbies.
That way, life never gets boring that way. haha
At the moment, I don’t know that I will ever move to Japan to live (that’s a question I am asked a lot fufufu) or if I would like to be a nomad artist, exploring other cultures and artistic practices.
However, I have a list of things that I do want to meet during the next leg of my career:
🎀 create a permanent creative space to encourage pursuing creative dreams
🎀 give back to my community, IKB style and through art
There is a desperate need for creative outlets and better examples of alternative lifestyles & living your dreams beyond circumstances
🎀 bring kawaii presence to DC
Kawaii is becoming a symbol of a more understanding and affectionate society, says Sebastian Masuda And urban youth, especially, need something expressive, creative & positive to take hold to. Kawaii is just that!
My Japanese handwriting practice doodle from the other night as I was brainstorming this series. Pardon the odd look of the particle “で”. I forgot it and wanted to make sure it was there >.<
I want to recreate my studio in Japan! (that was my dream two years ago that I am forever working on, now!)
Whooo~hooo … ambitious and shy me wants to do business things in Japan. *eegads!*
But in all things inspirational Gurren Lagann “Believe in me … who believes in you” comes to mind and with that, I am doing my best! =^.^=
Now that I am actively working on this and enjoying the journey!
Thankfully, it’s always best to dream big and start small so that you can grow into them. ❤
Please allow me to share my dreams of working in Japan here in #DCtoJapan, as I actively work towards creating my dream creative space, Little INKPLAY Shop. I do hope you’ll enjoy~
Feel free to leave comments about your dreams and let’s trade stories. I’ll be waiting. ^^
