I guess apart from the base levels most people work to scale up their lifestyles. Contrary to that for me its about making sense of myself.
I don’t mean to sound existential but if my work or self isn’t being useful to others around me, I find it hard to fathom my own existence. So for me design and illustrations are a meditation in usefulness. Some days are great others at times not so much.
Lastly making it is a subjective thing. What I want today might change when I finally achieve it.
Anyhow thank you for sharing these with all of us.
