When I really want something, I am willing to go to really dark places mentally to get it. I am willing to go to that psycho place. For me, it’s a mental place that I am willing to go to where I am willing to accept a lot of pain to get what I want. The 2012 Olympic Marathon Trials was the perfect example. I had not done the proper preparation to be on that team but I went to the dark cave in my head. I just accepted the pain and the dread and the agony.
I can’t actually remember the first time I saw Leah Goren's work, but you know that feeling when you see something you like, and then suddenly, you see that thing everywhere? That's what happened when I started seeing Leah's beautiful and sweet drawings all over the design blogs, Pinterest boards, and illustration websites I frequent for inspiration.
