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…
“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…
It’s been a crazy last few days for me. Over the weekend, I went to my first ever Agrofest. Three days of nonstop standing and talking to people…it was hectic, but enjoyable. I realise that I have a LONG way to go in terms of my confidence when it comes to approaching people about what it is that I do. (photo compliments The Zana Series: … Continue reading And other stuff!
Just thought I’d give everyone some insight into my work process. As convenient as getting my shirts printed was, I would’ve had to sacrifice a fundamental part of the design to keep my costs down. And as an artist…convenience over craft doesn’t sit well with me. So I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands, literally. So to get a consistent design, I decided … Continue reading Stencils!
There is something very strange about doing things on purpose. It sounds like a weird statement to make, but I’m finding this to be increasingly true in my life. I’ve always been adverse to planning. From very young, I’d decided that I was going to be plan-free. I would go where the wind took me, instead of bashing my head on a wall every time … Continue reading Deliberate
As the old saying goes: “When God shuts a door, He opens a window”. Without getting sidetracked by the “Is God really a He?!” conversation, I have to point out that this has been quite a comfort to me recently. Why? I recently lost my job. It’s a reality that one has to be prepared for as an employee, but that still doesn’t make it … Continue reading Open Window
Last weekend I ended the Business Boost 2013 seminar in an attempt to get some ideas on how best to proceed with my freelancing/business endeavours. It was a great little overview on all aspects of business: the organisation, marketing and financial management. When I make the time, I’ll post up a little overview of my experience. Long story short, I’ll be trying to streamline and … Continue reading Moving forward
Can’t wait til I can upload some artwork on here! I definitely do need to make time to update this blog though…the inconsistency is a little unbearable. But pleasantries and self-deprecation aside, I had something on my mind that I thought might be fitting to share with the internet. The Dark Knight Rises. If you haven’t seen the movie, and get precious about spoilers, watch … Continue reading Without The Rope
Busy, busy, busy. Confused. Tired. <—-This has been me for the last week or so. I hope you wonderful people have been well. I have been on a roll in terms of appreciating life. Trying to keep my head above water, trying to stop negative thoughts from smothering me and most of all, trying to figure out what is the best way to proceed with … Continue reading Life and New Promo
Been way too long since I last blogged. Work commitments increasing, freelance workload full to the max and I still want to do some “rebranding” for my page. Well, I say rebranding, but I just want to streamline it. Eventually I hope to have the page and artwork divided by my entrepreneurial efforts (customising clothing, Society6 and whatever else I come up with) and freelance … Continue reading Illustrator Adventures
