Artist's Description

Go forth boldly in the direction of your dreams. -Henry David Thoreau

Written the day I finished this mixed media illustration:
“Today has maybe been the hardest day since I quit my job (over two months ago now) to pursue an art career. One of those “when it rains, it pours” days for sure. I started this piece in the morning, and even after thing after thing went wrong, I kept working on it. It’s 10:30pm now and I just finished it, remembering the whole time that this is my dream and it’s worth it. Moral of this melodramatic story: your dreams are worth it so please please keep moving, no matter how awful some of the days may be <3" -October 2012

When I first read this quote by Thoreau, I instantly thought of how awesome it would be to combine a dream catcher with a compass rose. It just seemed to fit his inspirational words perfectly. The day it was completed was a rough day, but I’ll always look at this illustration and smile, because it’s a beautiful reminder to me to just keep going.

A perfect graduation gift, or for anyone who is about to embark on a new journey. A little bit bohemian, a lot bit inspirational.
