Everyone of us have something what makes his heart beat faster,
what makes him keep motivated
and what pushes him to hard work.
I have a friend who always wanted to be a fireman. As many of boys dream in the early age. About his fire brigade and the shiny fire truck. Cliché, heh? Not this time. As he got older, next to those dreams, he dreamed also about rescuing people and saving their properties from being burnt. The childish dream became his biggest aim. It kept him motivated during years of mental and physical preparations. He knew that struggling with the element require huge skills and continuous learning, so every training improvement, every success, even the smallest one, made him determined with achieving the aim.
So have I. What I'm gonna say might sound irrational, illogical and crazy and you may call me workaholic if you want and think that I have the symptoms but please be forbearing! Because probably, for most of you, the success and the aim are the most motivating factors. Of course I don't want to say that for me those are not important. They are! It would be just weird if they weren't. Luckily I'm not insane that much. For me, there is one other extremely important motivator which I can simply turn into the slogan:
Just do not stop! One good idea just entails another. I keep myself in a creative mood by doing sketches, putting on paper everything what's in my mind, developing what I've done, and breaking all rules I've submitted before. When at the end of the day I'm able to see what I've done, immediatley I get more ideas! I want to bring my ideas to life, to see them created, no matter if sawn, painted or drawn. The result of what I do doesn't need to be breathtaking. Moreover, it's shi..y quite often. But it is. I can see the result and draw conclusions and go further.
That's why you can see the variety of sketches in here so often! They're quick, they allow me to note the idea and to move on with my work. As you could see on my Instagram where I showed you my prototypes of pillows or jacquard labels, and as you could read on the blog some days ago when I talked a little bit about Breka, I've been working on several conceptions for my collection of interior textiles lately. Still a bit unfinished and imprecise, with some smudges and ragged edges but I think it's all going in good direction. It's moving forward, and that's the point!
