Give Your Brain Some Love
This is the 20th issue, I can't believe it's been that many already. Thank you all for reading this and I'm very grateful to have you around. Much Love!
One of my favorite designs I have made recently is now available as a print. You can buy it HERE or click the link below. I also just wanted to take a second to thank all of you beautiful people that have boughten prints. When client work is dry it really helps out financially and just the fact that people want my art hun up in their own creative spaces brings me a lot of joy. THANK YOU!

The Hellscape that is Instagram
Instagram continues to dive deeper and deeper into a shit hole of a platform. All my favorite designers and creatives including myself are experiencing massive drops in reach. I've had success posting reels but it's not very fun and only attracts an audience who wants more reels putting you into a cycle of bullshit. I know It isn't healthy to care about these things but when social media is a part of getting food on your table it is easy to obsess about "data". For now, I am detaching myself from the metrics and just gonna post my designs, and if people see them cool and if not oh well, blame Zuckerberg. In the future, I am def going to be putting more time into Twitter, TikTok, and Patreon so feel free to check my stuff out on there,
Thrifting and Collaging
Lately, I have been getting a lot more into analog collage. It has been fun to take the analog aspect of design to another level and remove the computer from the process. I have also been loving the entire process of it, like scouring thrift stores for old books and magazines. It is almost meditative to search for source material for an hour and then spend a few hours cutting stuff up and arranging it freely. The computer offers you unlimited resources so it can sometimes be daunting, a little restriction usually breeds the most creativity. Be on the look out for more collage from me online:)
I made a tweet about this recently because I was sitting in my office and it just hit me. I am very fortunate. I get in my head sometimes and compare myself to others (which is never good) and it just brings me down. However lately I have been feeling very grateful. With all the horrible stuff going on in the world it really puts your life into perspective. I really just get to do design/art most of the day, creating fun YouTube videos, talk to other amazing designers, and work from home. It also doesn't hurt to live in LA. This is not me bragging either I am just trying to stop and appreciate what all my hard work has gotten me. I want you to stop and smell the roses every once and a while. Go for walks, journal, read more books, and try to give your brain some love.
Stuff I currently like and stuff I'm looking forward to!
