Hope you all are doing well this Sunday. NGL I'm not the biggest sports fan in the world but pretty excited for the LA Rams to be in the Superbowl today. I'm a Philly Eagles fan and always will be, but it's always nice to get a dub for the hometown. Today I am getting a bunch of work done in the AM and then going into Relaxation mode.
New Print Sizes!
I always wanted to make my prints affordable to everyone, so I have finally figured out a solution and will now offer 8x10 versions of all my prints at a cheaper price! I hope this will be beneficial to some of y'all who were unable to swing for the 16x20 versions. If you want to check them out you can click HERE or the link below:)

The Power of Ritual
Recently I recorded a Day in The Life video for YouTube (coming soon) and it got me examining my daily rituals and habits. I never realized how important all the small things I do every day are to my happiness and productivity. There is something to be said about performing the same types of tasks around the same time every day. I'm not saying you have to be rigid but it's nice to set some common practices in your routine. Every morning I wake up around 9AM, drink a protein shake, make pour-over coffee, and do my journal. This has been crucial to setting the tone for the rest of the day and making sure I'm productive. I encourage you all to find some things that make you happy and help start your day off right.
Finishing a good book or series always has a bittersweet feeling. I feel accomplished and satisfied but also a little bummed out there isn't more for me to read or that I can never read this book again for the first time. This past weekend I finally finished reading Y Last Man. It's this super dope graphic novel about this society where everyone with a Y chromosome dies except this one dude and his pet monkey. Don't wanna spoil it too much so if you are interested grab the first book Here. I had never really read many graphic novels before but the art style was amazing and really made for it to be an easy but engaging read. The power of a good book is priceless, whenever I am in a state of my life where I'm reading a book I really connect with for a few weeks it just puts me into a good headspace. I would love to hear any book recommendations from y'all and if you wanna check out some of my favorites I have a List HERE.
Design and Fashion 20 Year Cycle
This past week I recorded a podcast with the great Jeremy Dean. I am so stoked to release that episode for you all. He has designed for The Grateful Dead, a bunch of punk bands and did the amazing art direction for John Mayer's Sob Rock. Anyway, we got to talking about fashion at some point and this idea of how design lives on this 20-year cycle. it was crazy to me because you all know I love Carhartt and it's very popular these days, but Jeremy was telling me even as an OG streetwear head in the 90s Carhartt was big and he said this is probably the 3rd lifecycle it's had. I see stuff come and go all the time in design, fashion, and overall art but it's pretty wild to hear about it first hand. I'm curious to see how I'll feel as I get older and when more & more design trends start to "come back".
Stuff I currently like and stuff I'm looking forward to!
