After doodling enough patterns, I wanted to attempt using my patterns. Wanting to keep in line with my new ‘quick first thoughts’ & ‘self-created’ motifs, the simpler idea seemed those random 1-word inspirational posters.. like those pictures of a fancy sky and white clouds with words like ‘Dream!’ Or ‘Inspire’. The issue was they all seemed too cheesy and/or insincere..
This exercise was WAY over my “under-10-min” rule just to think about a word that truly resonated with me.
I cleared my head again and the first word that popped up in there made me laugh.. – Unagi!!
And sometimes that is all the ‘life advice’ you need… And so it stays. Unagi!
