When I Was Young, I Wanted to be a Scientist

 

“This is the story of a child who dreamed of becoming a scientist but ended up as a street vendor instead.”

“When I was young, I would write down my dreams on pieces of paper, that when I grew up I would become this or that. As time passed, one by one these dreams faded away, until all I was left with was a plain, ordinary life. How many people, in order to have a stable life, have given up their dreams? When we can no longer bear the mundanity of our daily lives and we curse ourselves for giving up those dreams, there is hope left still.”

Wang2Mu is a Guangzhou-based illustrator known for his signature ballpoint pen style. Using only the colors red and blue, Wang2Mu commonly explores themes of childhood nostalgia, as well as Guangzhou’s domestic culture.

“这是关于一个梦想成为科学家的孩子的故事, 他最后成了街头小贩。在我小时候,我会在纸上写下我的梦想。”

“当我长大后, 我可能会成为这样或是那样。随着时间的流逝, 这些梦却一个接着一个消失,直到我只剩下眼前枯燥而平凡的生活。 为了能拥有稳定的生活,有多少人放弃了他们的梦想? 当我们再也无法承受日常生活的索然无味,开始诅咒当初放弃梦想的 那个自己时,这就表示一切还有希望。”

Wang2Mu(王二木) 是一位居于广州的插画家,以其标志性的圆珠笔创作而著名。 他通常只使用红色和蓝色两种颜色,主题围绕在童年的怀旧, 以及广州的在地文化。
