I’m sorry for being quiet for a while.
I wasn’t sleeping, I’ve been quite busy indeed.

One of my dreams came true, I spent a year working full time at W+K Amsterdam.
I made many badges, did some work for Coke and Nike Women, and met lots of interesting and talented people there.

Then I went home to chase another dream - to get this story published…
and I made it! I feel blessed to be able to draw what I imagine, to share what I experience. Thank you very much for your support and encouraging words!

I’d definitely love to share my new adventures with you here soon.

They seem excited, but I'm the most excited of all!

Keith called me the next morning as if he knew I drew them.
I organized and sent them the drawings immediately after the phone call.

Rabbit: Keith never said he wanted to see your drawings!

London 414

I was called to see different people in W+K office everyday while I was in amsterdam.
All of them were very nice. I like them a lot!
One night back to London, I felt like drawing.
At the end, I stayed up all night finishing
"My Journey to W+K Amsterdam".

London 413

Wow! I can't wait, though on the phone only.

Someone finds me useful eventually!

London 410

I get Lionel's email immediately after the call.
He has attached the picture he used to say a little something
about himself when he first joined AKQA.
Sweet! Although this is just a long-distance call,
I feel closer with him than with many people I've met in real.

Long-distance phone call, London, San Francisco ...
it sounds to be something cool;
however, the real picture is messy hair, pajamas and bare feet.

During my stay in Amsterdam,
I've been seeing lots of people and reading lots of emails.
There is so much information to digest. I'm exhausted!

With infinite courage, I use my last bit of energy to leave
a voicemail to Keith from W+K at Schiphol airport.
( My voice gets lower and lower... I feel embarrassed )

London 406

He is serious!
He even searched for my work on the internet. I'm touched!

London 404

It's bad news!
But I really appreciate that Penny hasn't forgotten me as a team-mate.

London 403

oh no, He is the guy staring at me in the lobby.
I regret having rudely stared at him back.

Strawberryfrog was always mysterious to me.
The mystery isn't solved after this visit.
Let it remains wrapped in mystery.

As suggested by Astrid, I go to the office again to
leave my books and portfolio before leaving Amsterdam.
She'll show them to ECDs when they are less busy.
I run into this Adidas guy at the reception.
"Again?", I guess he is Richard... is he?

London 398

Astrid brings me to say Hello to Richard.
I just show him my sketchbook.
He keeps rubbing the legs of my landlord!

London 397

To be honest, I hesitated to approach 180 when I read
what's needed to work there from their website:
three recent references and a list of international creative awards.
I'm afraid of those who always mention award winning.

Luckily Astrid was very friendly in emails.
When she is seeing my portfolio,
she yawns without incentive to hide.
She explains that she is just too full after lunch,
not being bored by my work.
This makes her even more friendly in person as you can only
be yourself when you're with real friends.

London 396

Astrid is the Creative Talent Manager of 180.
She must be brilliant as she is able to manage such an abstract concept
Both she and Keith at W+K have told me that they are good friends,
they must be very good friends then!

London 395

They are all in Adidas!

Dagmar is an art director.
She is the first creative who I've met in Europe also loves Japanese Ad. I'm a big fan too!

London 392

Alvaro is the creative director of Nike Team.
He is in Nike from head to foot!
oh, I've better to hide my Adidas watch.

London 391

Because of global warming, polar bears keep swimming
in water as he can't find any iceland for landing.
From Asia to Europe, I'm really tired ...
I wonder whether there is any wonderland for creatives in this world?

- He tells me " We want to make things, that's why Al and me are here."
I must speak out this time ...
