I was recently interviewed for the SaveTheArtist.net podcast. The final question in the interview was, “For an artist just starting out on their first big project, what’s the one piece of advice you’d give them?”
The only answer I could come up with was something I talked about last month that I haven’t been able to get out of my head. It may just be my phrase for 2012, and it’s simply this:
Forget what you know, and dream big.
As life has recently thrown me some lemons, and if you’ve listened to my last month in review, you know that I am on an exciting journey. Nothing to me is more fitting than dreaming bigger. But I know I’m not alone in my struggle to dream bigger, so as of right now, I’m issuing a community challenge– I challenge you to dream bigger with me.
As a way of constantly reminding myself to “Dream Big“, I’ve gone and created an iOS wallpaper that I will see every time I turn on my phone. And just because I want you to dream big also, I’ve uploaded it here for you to save and use on your iPhone as well!
On top of that, I created an alternate Android version for those of you who insist on having more complicated lives (I’m just kidding Android lovers– don’t go all “anti-apple” on me)! Have you ever thought about how difficult it is to create a quality wallpaper for a device that has so many screen resolutions and doesn’t just have one orientation?
Yea, me neither, until today. But I finally figured it out, and I’m now smarter because of it.
All you have to do is click on the images below, save it to your device, and set it as your wallpaper. Enjoy!
Thanks to Emilie Eggleston for helping me work out the Android dimensions! As a fellow designer, I knew she was the perfect person to test out the Android designs. I couldn’t have figured it out without her help!
