Adore and Endure Each Other.

“let’s Adore and Endure each other” brain-storm sketch.

 

Hello everyone!

I, once again, would like to start the week with positive and enduring thoughts! Hug around, folks :)))

This last weekend, I had a friend coming over, who is quite the twitter phenomenon “celebrity” and has the ultimate publicity potential! Hah, not that, but I really wanted to give a gift to her, also because she had been following my posts and stating she wanted one, so I made it real!

The thing was, I couldn’t ask her what she wanted, like “Hey, any cool quotes in your mind for me to put on a t-shirt?” That would have ruined the surprise, so I browsed through her albums and tried to catch something that she might like. I saw this photo of  a quote on a wall in London, in a recent trip she had been, so I went with this!

I liked how it turned out, did you?

I wanted to make her more than one, so that she could “publicize” easier (!) but I had limited time, as I had other orders of clients lined up!

The thing about creative/crafty work is you want to give gifts to your friends and family, but the leisure joy of it vanishes when you actually make a living out of it and try to meet the deadlines, *while* being innovative and creative.

I steal time from my work, blur the line between work & play, and prepare some form of art – may it be cupcake decorations, home solutions or jewelry design- just for the sake of it, so that I don’t get carried away in the dull routine of work.

Oh, the deadlines I have to meet?

The clients are happily wearing their equin-co’s as I type. 😉

More posts on that later,

Cheers!

Change is Important!

Hello folks !!

Today’s inspirational quote is, “change your thoughts and your world will change.”

Lots of people are unaware of this simple fact, but it is so effective, knowing we stumble ourselves into the situations we currently hate, as a result of a once very needed occasion.

This “mantra” or philosophy if you will, like any other perfected habits, requires practice. Repetition and decisiveness are the key to permanent results.

I hope this inspires you to begin your own process of whatever-you-like !!

Cheers. xx

Imagine…

OK, I know lately I’ve been into “you’re amazing” and “always know you can” and be happy  and self-help stuff and bla bla…

I can easily say that I am not hardcore into these kind of stuff. But, (and that is a BIG but) I *know* you can improve a lot and achieve much better when you follow common sense and embrace an open mind.

Whenever I come across a self-help book, (you know it, I have read a dozen of those!) I immediately search the substructure of the whole idea. Be it the author, the geographics, the politics or the economic culture behind it, IF I find a connection that touches my heart and appeals to me, that means the *method* is right. Speaking of which, I am not into “methods” at all. To me, the ultimate positive thinking is really, really embrace the momentary situation you are in. Be content with it. Be content with yourself. Everything is not going to be okay, Everything is OK right now. I mean what excuse are you going to come up with to prove me wrong? Deep in everyone’s heart, I know all kinds of thinking and perceiving are positive, anyway.

The human nature is thought to be incapable. We practice our incapabilities everyday through media, health system, even through politics. The fact can not be further from it, the human race is capable of great things.

This is not faith, not a new age philosophy, nothing with a fancy label. Just common sense.

Anyways:) Enough with the seriousness, here is today’s drawing,

Remember: You CAN Imagine!!!

Don’t let you hold back yourself 🙂

Cheers!
