Idea: An attempt to make a self portrait that speaks of who i am as a person.

The picture aims to convey transition. It strikes to show my interests in fashion and architecture and how both are in constant growth and mutation; developing and unfolding constantly.
It speaks of my interest in designing neckware and how i see spaces transition. It ultimate attempt is for it to convey what i am as a person.

Hidden in a cocoon...

The artist beautifully expressing human emotions and relations.
A baby until it is born is so safe, hooded by his mother in her womb from all the evil: from everything that could harm it. But once it sees the light of the day there starts a new circle from which no matter how hard you try you will still be sucked in. Have you ever thought that you wish you could sheild yourself in a cocoon just like a silkworm or hide yourself in your moms womb where everythign is perfect and beautiful.

Free Hugs

Its amazing how small actions can brings immense calm and joy. Just like it was the one thing that he/she needed for everything to be set things right, a remedy for all the upside down, just like its the key to everything to unlock all the happiness of the moment and to set you free. Just like your ready to fly just one more time.

Its amazing to think about how different hugs could be.
Think of how you felt after you just cried and someone hugged you
How you felt when you're father or mother hugged you? 
Remember your best friends hug?
And how about when your girlfriend or boyfriend hugs you? 
The hug which you gave someone when you were parting with, or the one when you met someone after a long time?
The hug that you gave a dear one who lost something or someone or the hug that was given to someone who achieved something?
remember that one hug when you just dint want to let go forever and ever?

A hug can be the best remedy to soothe someone from their pain and to comfort someone to tell them your there for them. I am not too good with words, i mess up in expressing myself but its this expression that never goes wrong, it speaks louder than words. Hug someone tightly with you eyes closed and with a smile and see your world transform and the best thing is you never give one without getting one. 

It just this one hug that i wanted to give to someone dear and that one hug i longed for recently. So its important that you express yourself because at times when your not close to someone and your not good with words and silence is all your left with. So hug your dear ones whenever you get a chance be it with a reason or without one.

Freedom, something so subjective, it means different things to different individuals. People are often a prisoner of their inner-self, others are restricted by outside factors, there can be just innumerable reasons for not feeling free.

As we drove the other day we came across these cows that were grazing in the field. They had little number tags on their ears and the grazing grounds were restrained by the barbed wire. They looked at us so helplessly i was saddened i remembered those birds that i once saw that had anklets to their feet since they belonged to someone. There are countless reasons of feeling enclosed and trapped and everyone of them wishes just if they were free.
I wonder too i had wings, just if  could fly away at times, go to that distant link to my homeland, ust If I could this one time.

So cherish your freedom because remember there are many who just wish they could.

Pendleton: The Portland Collection

The new The Portland Collection for Pendleton by Portland designers Nathaniel Crissman, Rachel Turk and John Blasioli certainly brings a lot of excitement in me. I am going so crazy for their bags in particular. N

The Port­land col­lec­tion promises is a more fash­ion­ably pro­gres­sive line than their clas­sic pieces steeped in Amer­i­cana. The idea was to develop contemporary but still use the tra­di­tional Pendle­ton pat­terns as a launch­ing pad for the pieces tar­get­ing a younger more urban bridge mar­ket. Above is the first sketch released to the pub­lic of the col­lec­tion and we can’t wait to see what else is com­ing!

“Perennial pleated skirts, wool plaids and Western wear are the heart of Pendleton, but The Portland Collection will have a designer feel, an urba
n sensibility and a versatility factor.”–Mort Bishop, Pendleton Woolen Mills President

The Land of Happy

 Shel Silverstein quotes

“Have you been to The Land of Happy,
Where everyone's happy all day,
Where they joke and they sing
Of the happiest things,
And everything's jolly and gay?
There's no one unhappy in Happy, There's laughter and smiles galore.
I have been to The Land of Happy -
What a bore!”

Happiness is often boring to the mind of a self-conceited person. There might be more drama attached to unhapiness but there can be nothing more marvelous, new and exciting as happiness. So as far as i am concerned i think the happiness and the happy land would be just the place id love to love in.And a just smile at every smile

Hybrid Digital Cadavers

Michael Reedy works form a fascinating mixture of classic portrait and an informative guide to the anatomy naturalism. Its very accurate, realistic, fun, ethereal, hallucinogenic. Just seems like you hold an glass and you can look through and see whats in you. My recent interest in human anatomy drawings makes me wonder when i will even get close to 10 percent of his perfection. Stunning work.

the pure innocence

As we grow mature and old the biggest change that comes in a person is that they loose that innocence and purity. Have you ever thought what a child thinks when he/she stares at you, i really wonder. You smile at them and they'll smile back, wink your eyes and they'll wink back at you: its just so pristine. It just seems that their world is magical, they sparkle in their eyes, the beauty of their smile; adventurous and wild.
So just when the word seems harsh and everything just seems upside down, don't give up. Just find the child inside you find you and let it be free and see everything fall in place.

try it on again and again

I often laugh about the little things that we like to do in life, some odd tendencies.

Being a shopaholic i love to get things most of which are tried and tested before they are purchased for perfection. But there is just so much joy in coming home and trying the stuff that you just bought again, modeling it for your family and friends. No matter how creased the clothing is, how stiff, or itchy at the tag i still would run right to my room and come out with a swagger. there is a high in this that i am sure many can relate to.
