"Air Force" - A3, Original Ink On Paper
I used to buy at least one pair of sneakers a month. Most of the time that would be the first thing I would do during payday instead of going out for drinks. It would bring me joy and excitement to wear new kicks at work the next day.
But since I decided I was done working 9 to 5 for someone else’s dream I spend most of my money investing in myself buying art supplies or new tools to experiment and create everyday.
I cannot afford to get sneakers whenever I want anymore and this is exactly why I started drawing pairs* I like. I wanted to confirm what I knew already, you don't need a lot of external things to bring excitement into your life when you spend your time, money and energy doing something you truly love.
