I have always believed that there are people who you will meet, who will be a blessing to you or be a reminder of what your heart desires. More often than not, we tend to get too caught up with life or our fears, that we have a tendency to put our plans aside and simply continue with life’s daily activities.
It was during Dan Geromo, aka Spider-Dan’s talk last Saturday [June 12, 2014] at Asia Pacific College – The Art of Dan Geromo, And The Power of Disguise, where I was reminded about [if not yet fulfilling] at least actually putting into action on what’s been cluttering my head over the past months. Aside from my daily job of a life of an editorial assistant, I’ve been meaning on starting a business of my own. However, fear has been keeping me from doing it. The fear of being limited with my so-called “art abilities”. Meaning, I suck at drawing.
There were a lot of different aspects that was shared to us, but what struck me the most was when he shared with us a quote from the book, Steal Like An Artist.
Art can be in many forms and is not just limited to drawing. I’ve had a couple of light bulb ideas already, to which perhaps could work but admittedly, to which I haven’t done anything to start the project. In other words, it has been a stagnant idea for sometime. Okay, if I may justify, perhaps it was also because of anxiety too and finding the extra time to actually work on it.
Anyhow, the discussion was an eye-opener from what I want to do. And aside from that, I was lucky to have a photo op with the famous “Spider-Dan”. But before I share my photos, let me show glimpses of the said event during his talk. *all photos were captured with Samsung Galaxy Tab camera, hence the poor quality.
Many thanks to my SO for asking me to accompany him that day. I truly enjoyed Dan’s talk, sharing his knowledge, experience and showing us a glimpse of the book, Steal like an Artist. It’s a must buy / I want that book! He-he!
Right after his talk, we left APC and headed straight to Greenhills. To where my remarkable weekend ended.
Till my next post! 🙂
