WISE WORDS & SOMETHING FOR YOU


Graphic by me

It's incredible how much good movies can inspire me. In fact, i dare to say that it's a good 70% where i absorb ideas from and get my inspiration. Just a couple of days ago, we got to watch The secret life of Walter Mitty and boy oh boy.. that movie is a gem. Already on top of my favourite movies list. 

The moment went magical when Sean Penn said "..beautiful things, don't ask for attention". And it just hit me that very second. Fell in love with the creativity, music, scenery, originality, plot, ending, extraordinary quotes and life messages. It's a must see for all of you creatives out there. A movie that i call, bucket full of lessons and inspiration.


And of course just like any other time, i have to treasure this amazing quote on my desktop. The movie itself left me full of optimism and somehow colours.. So here i am, working on my handwriting and playing with some colour combos. You can choose the one that suits you best. Enjoy!
