Do your thing. Do it every day. Do it ‘unapologetically’. Don’t be discouraged by criticism. You probably already know what they’re going to say. Pay no mind to the fear of failure. It’s far more valuable than success. Take ownership, take chances and have fun. And no matter what, don’t ever stop doing your thing. — Asher Roth

The last couple of months has been a roller coaster ride.  Testings, sketching, throwing ideas around, experimenting different mediums, meeting new people, failing, and lots of reading like - a lot of it!  Then there were a few moments that I was not inspired, feeling beaten up and doubting some things.  In my mind though and with Patrick's support, I know this negativity had to go, "it" can't live in me, it's all in our head (that's what they always say).  

So now here I am again, been waking up early, determine to change some of my bad habits. 

As we have mentioned last month, we are in a state of transition, changing things up a little!  We do feel like there is a need of balance in some of our products.  The change is not about changing all our products, but more like our approach, our way of working, our thinking but still staying true to ourselves.  We are very excited about our new projects, boy they do take time, we have been working on and still working on them!  There are small, medium and large things.  But hey it's all about progress, not perfection.  Let's just say it's back to ARCHITECTURE days again!

Reveurs of Wonder - our own MIMAW Times 

The 'newspaper' you see is made by us and my second attempt on gif image, better than the last.  The last was a mess, wasn't quite sure what it was, the sequence was not quite right.  That being say, I'm very happy with this piece, merging the real and illustrations.   It was a great fun making it, pushing my knowledge digitally.  There are some hints on what's to come on the newspaper!  Keep up with us because more info coming soon. 

I always seem to know what I want to do, learn, make (if I listen to my heart more) but sometimes it's easy to get distracted.  Here, a reminder to myself and any of you reading this out there it's always great to follow our hearts!!  

Anything magical and enchanting and imaginative and full of curious souls and most of all fun, these are the traits that I really want to bring to MIMAW.  Now I'm more sure than ever.  There are many books, the everyday things and movies that do just that. It's funny how some words, scenes, elements really excite me and I'm going to trust it more and more.  

You know that excitement you feel when you start a new project or fall in love with someone? You know that feeling I’m talking about? Bottle it up and get drunk on it everyday - Jules

Be curious, be excited, be grateful, be in the moment and be ourselves.  We will update and share more things with you guys in the next blog post & Instagram.  Have a great week!
