The poster “The Optimst” it’s a self-ordered poster made for fun in the playground of imagination.
“I had felt in many situations no matter what’s happening and how people react around me, that it’s important to always stay positive and optimistic but that is not easy. Like a knight defending himself with a smile against negativity and obstacles in life. It’s hard to be thinking hopefully all the time when you see bad news in the social media or people around you are toxic. Optimism isn’t only wearing the pink glasses when it’s needed it’s having faith and fighting for the better day you believes in. I wanted the poster to be dynamic and somehow involve the viewer directly into action “says Ivan.
