(heheh i love this lady's cartoony doodles.)
so i was thinking....are there any truly happy happy artists that make amazing art? Amazing clothes?? amazing jewelry???
i really wonder if great art ever comes from a place of laughter. I've seen the art of happy hippies and it's swirls and doodles and randomness that doesn't really communicate more. It's like it's an emotional inability to be able to represent your thoughts properly, but when you're dealing with whatever dark mind thoughts or issues or life experiences that aren't as peachy, the art becomes this untangled web of colour and narration that pleases the eye. It's like those bees that make beautiful amazing cocoons with their poop. Or something......
ANYWAY...............here's the giveaway...from now until the end of the month i'll take down names/nicknames on this blog on a custom hoodie. The way it works with my hoodies is that i recycles old clothing and turn it into something more awesome.
The winner will contact me and tell me what main colour they want...and the SIZE. And maybe for a girl thermal hoodie/shirt they can say: i want a small PINK long sleeve shirt with a HOOD and LACE modified arm cuffs. For a boy he can say: i want an extra large BROWN hoodie with a POUCH. The rest i will modify as my creativity takes me :) cool?
leave comment on this post and watch back at the end of the month to see if your name was selected :) ...or leave email and i will contact you
