2017 Horoscope Series | Taurus

In creating this series I've found every month brings a completely new piece. Each and every muse(s) bring a totally new influence and life to their piece. Taurus was inspired by my good friend and muse, also the previous muse for Hotel Cali - I loved so much creating this, it was a piece of wonder, inspiration (inspired by Esra Roise) and experiment.

2017 Horoscope Series | Aries

Next up we have Aries - featuring two present and past legends, Lady Gaga and Heath Ledger. This was a piece very close to my heart (more than most) and something that will come up during this series for the year with a few others.. I had a very strange encounter with Ledgers passing and hit me very hard. This is piece is inspired by the fire in both Gaga and Ledger - it's speaks to rebellion, passion and their very raw, unapologetic personalities.

Welcome to the Jungle

I have finally (FINALLY) finished my Frida inspired piece. This piece was the perfect example of progress and learning. Not only did I start this piece entirely different but had 2 attempts before completely scrapping it and rebuilding until it felt right. I couldn't let creating this piece go after researching Frida, I decided not to take the defeated route and rework the inspiration.

2017 Horoscope Series | Pisces

Beyond excited to finally show you this next piece - mainly because it's completely inspired by my homegirl Ecca Vandal and starring RiRi. This was a piece celebrating strong women, experimentation and COLOUR. The end result is raw and (I feel) sits perfectly inline with both ladies killing it not only in their industry but specifically their genre.

The Never Ending Series - Cj Hendry

I don’t know where this edition of The Never Ending Series went in my mind but Cj Hendry for me was a big part of why I kept going and the way I have. I started watching Cj create through IG as early as her white spray painted objects, when I had the chance to see her talk (which also led me to discovering Jasmine Dowling) I jumped at the chance, and taking in every word she said from how she started to her process and leap - I thought. This is it, this is why I’m going to keep going.

Social Media vs. Me

So.. I think this can be a touchy subject - where I’ve seen it’s easier to talk to friends about it or open up a bit about it during conference speeches but generally not something you see ON social media - as it’s really ALL ABOUT social media. I honestly read this over and over, more than usual before posting because just thinking about this shit makes my head spin.

Welcome to the Jungle

This is a piece that’s been marinating for some time - after hearing Welcome to the Jungle by Tash Sultana I instantly needed to illustrate what I felt from it, soon enough Frida Kahlo was coming to mind. I didn’t have much knowledge of Frida but knew her iconic look, after watching the documentary Frida it really showed her rebellious nature, especially for her generation. She was fiery, against the grain, dark mind fuelled by tragedy and pain.
