inspiring words

When others doubt, be confident in your vision. Stop waiting for the perfect time to do what you want to do. Just go for it and do it now.

Don’t’ follow fashion trends. The most fashionable thing you can be is to be you. Travel the world, live in other cities, learn cultures. Learn because it keeps your mind young. You don’t need a university degree to be successful, although it may be helpful, but don’t do it because your parents – or you? – have status anxiety. Stop whining about it.

But what you do need is vision, tenacity and confidence in what you do. Do what you love now. Listen to your heart, it knows what makes you happy.

If your job sucks, stop blaming others, your boss, your parents, the unverse. Just quit and take responsibility for your own choices. It’s not about the sucky job. It is about you being in the wrong place. There’s never a better time than now.

Start doing what your mind has been ticking away for you to do for years. Take risks. Be in a relationship that flows effortlessly. Trust your gut feeling. Intuition is strong and powerful.

bambi eyez: new artwork 'sunken treasure'

new artwork by me! i called this one 'sunken treasure' after the song of the same name by wilco. The lyrics to that song kept running through my head as i was creating this, but i never knew the actual name of the song until i googled the lyrics. ha ha! I used watercolour brushes and a nice thick paper texture layered under the illustration. i have been inspired a lot by vintage photographs of late so i think this shows in the piece. a cannon is next on my 'to buy' list!! hope you all like :)

lyrics and type

I am often inspired by lyrics and use words within my work to help convey a feeling or message. I stumbled upon the website for LYRICS AND TYPE - an ongoing international type and illustration initiative founded by Timba Smits, the creator of the award winning arts culture publication Wooden Toy Quarterly. The exhibition was held on the 8th April 2010, in East London, in Brick lanes very own East Gallery. check out the new wooden toy here!
