Waking Up From Work

Happiness Is The Focus, Challenges Are The Cycle W/ Digital & Mural Artist Durkish Delights

August 18, 2020

E71:

Today we hang with Mike of Durkish Delight. Digital art, murals, and lots more. Durkish is a networker by nature connecting with people around the world from IG, TikTok, and google maps while making art.

We talk on enjoying the process and seeing the light at the end of the 9 to 5 tunnel. We also go over our own tendencies as entrepreneurs and creatives to be cyclical in creating our own problems to fight away. I think all of us in this life do that to some degree. Come hang out and chat across mediums and lifestyle living a creative life full time.

 

In This Episode We Cover

  • Seeing a glimpse of full time coming
  • Transitioning from full time job to full time creative work

  • You don’t know what doors will lead to what
  • The world could end tomorrow

Quotes

I always try to think ahead to I’m gonna be old with wrinkley skin some day. I don’t want to be 90 and regret that I was too scared to take the chance on what I love.” - Durkish Delight

 

“In life there are challenges, thats always gonna be there so you gotta enjoy it as you go.” - Durkish Delight

 

“You can’t see it when you’re in it, it’s like standing too close to a mural but not seeing the big picture to understand the beauty.” - Host Dave Swillum
