At the Monterey Bay Aquarium they have this amazing overhead exhibit of sardines circling your head. It's like one continuous silver streak that shimmers and moves.
There's always a rebel fish trying to go the other way. That might have been me at one time, perhaps in the seventies ( or eighties or nineties!)
But sometimes we just have to put on the brakes. Put that puppy in reverse and see what happens. Did the world stop?
Um, no. I really didn't think it would. Not for me anyway.
Here's my worldly advice for what it's worth.
Be true to yourself.
Dream your dreams.
Swim, swim, swim!
Even if it seems the other guys are going against you, stay true to you.
How can you lose?
Look at the date on this sketch! Done in my very first Moleskine, 2007, for Illustration Friday's word: backwards.
Seems to work for reverse as well, no?
