Homwork #1 Remembering why you started
Amidst the trillion other things I thought would be a good idea to sign-up for all at once as the clock struck 2018, was a weekly lettering challenge by Lauren Hom. She’s a badass letterist and illustrator who’s work I’ve admired since her Daily Dishonesty days.
This week’s prompt was to write your name surrounded by your favorite things. And it really came at perfect timing because when you’re working for yourself, it’s very easy to forget the reason you started in the first place. You want it to work SO BAD that sometimes the hustle takes over the heart. Or you’re drowning in tracking hours, invoices, emails so you can keep working on the things you feel is most important to give back to this world.
Remember why you started
So, this was a good one to work on today. Because I kind of forgot that I LOVE listening to my blues records and why not play those more? Oh and a slow Saturday in Joel’s flannel with coffee and a good book like this one. All the more reason to finish up my work today and enjoy a relaxing weekend home. 🙂
You can also find each week’s lettering on my Instagram and portfolio. If you’re interested, join the creative challenge anytime and you’ll receive a weekly email from Lauren with the next week’s prompt. Sign-up here.
