Adobe WTFIT :: Hubris Atomizer

  • #WTFIT

    Adobe invited me to participate in the WTFIT challenge! They sent me a magical box of seemingly random items with an inspiration word to illustrate using only the provided objects, paint, and glue. 

    check out the article on Adobe:

    Here’s  how it works:

    1. You’ve received a box on unrelated items 
    2. Find your word on the back of this card
    3. You have 1 week to create something that represents the spirit of the word.
    4. Use every item in this box in your creation. Add only glue and paint. 
    5. At the end of the week, photograph or oil the results and post them as a new project in your Bechance profile. Include any in-progress images
    6. Tag the new Bechance project with WTFIT
    7. The results will be published in Adobe Create Magazine

    Traditional interpretation has led to the belief that one must play it safe in life, obey all authority without question, not to fly too high. Modern reinterpretations points to the other part of the myth’s warning: Don’t fly too low either. 

    We all need to spread our wings and soar, embrace talent, pursue passions, find purpose in life. Aiming for the stars and walking with head held high is a good thing. Push against the walls that confine, and make self-love a priority while helping others.
