David Hockney and Shrimps: Paving Your Own Path

 Very few things come close to the consistent sense of joy and endless inspiration you feel upon discovering your passion.  I find myself daydreaming about potential collaborations, photoshoots, and material for this site pretty much every second of the day. AND. IT’S. AWESOME. In a time where it is incredibly difficult to even find a survival job, I really believe now, more than ever, individuals have to use their creativity and talent to create a job that allows them to pursue what they love.

 As a visual representation of this idea, David Hockney’s work, “Queen Anne’s Lace Near Kilham” not only displays an interpretation of the bountiful opportunities that can arise from unchartered territories, but Mr. Hockney is an iconic example of an artist whose ownership of his authentic ideas and self, has made him one of the most sought after, successful and influential British artists of the 20th century.  In the fashion world, Shrimps founder Hannah Weiland is actively pursuing this idea of making your own success, and quickly taking the world by storm. She is creatively and colorfully exploring the relatively untapped world of high-end faux-fur, and absolutely killing it with her original line of impeccably designed and executed pieces.

 If you can take one thing away from the post it’s this; Find your passion, love what you do, and your authenticity will make it possible to live out your dream every day.
