Our Thursday update features architect, self-taught graphic and web designer, and photographer Allie. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us!
What’s your name?
Where on the Internet can we find you? (URL/Instagram/Twitter/Facebook)
Personal website: http://thefoureyedwonder.com
What would you like to be known for?
Smart, interesting, colorful art and design.
Something to look back on: What do you wish you could say to a younger self? If you knew then what you know now, what would you have done differently? Tell us more about this younger self, if you’d like.
I was always someone who coasted through school and got relatively well marks, and tried a lot of things but never stuck to any of them. I sometimes wish I could tell my younger self to work a little harder or have a little more focus, because it would have helped me hone my talents sooner.
Something right now: What makes you glad to be alive right now? What gets you excited these days? What is it about these things that inspire you? Feel free to tell us more about the things that excite you.
Until recently, it has been the Gilmore Girls revival haha! I have been getting more time to create and make things I love lately so I am happy about that. It keeps me motivated and excited for next projects and things to come.
Something to pass on: What piece of advice/words of wisdom have stuck with you all this time which you would like to pass on? Why are they memorable? Feel free to expound, if you like.
Stop overthinking and just do it. I’m the type who has to plan out everything in her head, and I usually end up getting frustrated and not getting anywhere. Sometimes it’s just good to jump in headfirst and then go from there.
