About the Book
A Daydream a Day is a collection of fifty cute drawings and inspirational poetry about growing up, defining success, and falling in love. The black-and-white, cartoon-style drawings will fully immerse readers in the daydreams of a young adult trying to make sense of life.
The collection is divided into five parts—on a continuum from being lost to facing inner demons and finding a life direction. Each drawing and poem compel readers to consider life, extracting simple but profound truths through visual art: pursue your dreams, stay humble, and never give up.
Along the way, readers will encounter a vast expanse of cartoon characters—a skydiver; a big, furry bear; and a boy catching feelings. In addition, the collection serves as a reference and inspiration for digital artists in search of new ideas on brush/pen, background, and shading techniques.
Ivan Tu’s collection is perfect for young adults searching for happiness in a confusing and competitive world. Ivan discovered how to be happy in the act of creation, and hopes his words and drawings leave a smile on your face too.
From identity, purpose, and love and loss to stress, abuse, and guilt and temptation, Ivan Tu brings the joys and struggles of young adulthood to light. He fills the pages of A Daydream a Day with thoughtful poetry and quirky illustrations that are unique to his own style and ever so creative.
Reading this collection of poems felt like playing a round of The Game of Life because, after all, these poems are just that: thoughts put into words for the journey that is life.
