If you’re an artist, or just enjoy entertaining new ideas, I think this is a cool series to watch to really get you thinking more about the impact of colour. It’s already got … Continue reading Color Psychology – Part 1/3
Doing some sketches for a shoe I’ll be painting soon. Mega excited! One of the things I really look forward to when creating new pieces is the idea of “blessing” them. Imparting some kind of positive energy on the material through the symbols used or ideas expressed…and I do love me some symbology. Some of my favourite symbols to use are the adinkra symbols from … Continue reading Adinkra!
A house divided against itself will only ever fall. I write this to say that if we are constantly fighting ourselves, we leave no time or energy to accomplish our goals to our fullest capacity. Trust me, I know this. So what divides us against ourselves? Doubt. Good, old, run-of-the-mill self-doubt. Time and time again, I have done battle with self-doubt and – once again … Continue reading Don’t Stop Believing…

What does this brand mean to me? And how can I make it better? Someone posed these questions to me recently, and it got me thinking. About progression, mostly. Where I am now, what I’d like to be producing in the future. That sorta stuff. I was told my wear was good. Which is awesome. I was also told that it’s not as good as … Continue reading Better. Bigger.
“Love is simply what is when your heart is open. You could love your husband, your dog, your mother, your car, a book, your child, a painting or the seashore – or all of them at once. Love is simply the opening of your heart. When your heart is open, you love whomever, or whatever, is in your life. Love is the union of you … Continue reading “Love is simply…
I’m a Pinterest enthusiast. That’s a nice way of saying that I could easily spend hours on Pinterest hoarding DIY tips, recipes, clothes and other things that I find interesting to look at. Don’t believe me? See how far the madness goes. Any way, ever so often on my hoarding sprees, I like to pin things that I could use to enhance my line from … Continue reading Tank Experiment
