Let Your Imagination Speak…

1 Mar

… is my design for the collaborative contest with Threadless and the You Are Beautiful Campaign.

I forgot when I stumble across the You Are Beautiful campaign, it was a few years ago and  I am so happy that I found it. My very first “contribution” to this campaign was simple. I was sitting on a plane either heading back to school or I was coming home, I took a piece of paper tore it into a smaller piece and wrote “you are beautiful”; either on the same side as that or on the back I asked that whoever found the paper leave it somewhere else for another person to find. A simple gesture that hopefully has made other people smile and made them feel loved and beautiful.

Being beautiful has always been a difficult thing for me to feel and so was being confident with myself. I don’t expect to be the best at every thing but I feel most of the time my ideas and words and thoughts are constantly cast aside…  But no matter, I keep picking myself up back away from the things that sometimes hurt and I figure out how to grow.

The one thing I will always have is my imagination and my thoughts. Most of the time they are totally unrealistic and pretty much leave me living in my own world but at this point in my life I really don’t care. With my imagination I can create beautiful pieces of art and write poetry and stories for others to look at and for one thing I can be totally proud of.

So here I am and here you’ve made it to the almost end of this post. I hope as a supporter of my art and my visions I hope you vote for my Threadless and You Are Beautiful t-shirt design. I am including two links the actual page of the design and the general page with the designs on it. I am doing this because their website is still in wonky beta mode. The highest vote is a five and lowest is a one. To vote it works best to go to the general page the design is on and place the mouse over the image and choose the number score. You will also have to create a log in to the Threadless site.

*THE NUMBER SCORE IS IMPORTANT BUT SO ARE THE COMMENTS!* Comments are just as important and can really help the design get printed.

The contest is with threadless and the You Are Beautiful campaign, I’ve been following this campaign for years and have even attempted doing a small project for it a few years ago. i hope when I post the links you all will help me out by voting and sharing the designs with everyone you know, unlike the Sony and Threadless design, I am truly passionate about this campaign. So get ready friends! Love to you all!

The eyes are a window to the soul.

1 Nov

I am not sure how many of my friends know this or how many people I have spoken about this to… but I think all of you should know the multitude of which I find inspiration in music and sounds. Everywhere I turn, every quiet forest, every bird, every gentle breeze, every storm, every rainfall, every snowfall, every story I hear… those are my inspirations. I find some form of inspiration everyday… but it takes years to gather enough moments of inspiration to create art that I can truly be proud of and the last piece I was excited about happened to be my senior exhibition project which was almost four years ago. That was up until Sunday night… well before that but Sunday I finished and sent in a design to Threadless for one of their challenges. Yes for people reading this and that have been loving keeping up with the posts on facebook. And if you are thinking this is silly or a pathetic way of getting people to vote, you can think what you want. But I want people to really understand that my art, when I am truly happy with it an excited to show people, that it’s important that everyone in the world has a chance to see it. Many people have said this: “Your eyes are a window into the soul…”. Well this design I am giving the world a chance to see into my soul a bit, at least for the moment the joyous and inspired part of my soul. My soul takes me into galaxies far beyond our own and allows me to dream up things in my imagination that I can never get quite right on paper… That was until I read the challenge presented by Sony and Threadless and my hands and imagination immediately figured out how to work together.

So if you have read this far, I thank you with every morsel of my heart. And I ask that you if not before this please vote for my design and make sure to leave an awesome comment on the design page, and if you have voted but decided to not leave a comment please think about leaving one. Comments are another way a design gets chosen. And then if you could share either this blog post or the link on my designs page with all of your friends, I would be eternally grateful. This isn’t really about winning, it’s about everything I wrote before this, winning would just be an added bonus and to say that I actually won something (which I’ve never been that good at anything). Yes, this may be a bit of a bribe..(but also a brilliant idea from a lovely friend) every comment/ vote I get I will bake a cookie. At the moment for comments (6? cookies) and votes (140 something?). I also bake really delightful cookies. =]
