I am a firm believer that everything around us exude beauty. Not the limited, one-way kind, but beauty of all sorts, all forms and shapes.
So as the cliche goes, “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”, I do agree to this whole heartedly. The description of beauty is as limited or as broad as the observer/describer of any medium.
This is a famous quote by Confucius, a Chinese philosopher and a personal inspiration to me. Check out more about him and his inspirational quotes here.
I will go a pinch further by saying what may or may not be right or wrong, beautiful and ugly, good or bad, we simply don’t KNOW! Seriously, far far back, society enforced some kind of rule book to decide which is which. (which, by the way, has restored faith in humanity by constantly expanding and taboo breaking by the day) (
As in a more spiritual way, I can say that If one raises oneself to see the most extraordinary beauty in the most ugliest person (figurative speech! As I, don’t even believe there is such thing as UGLY!) than that means humanity has come a LONG way, and there is hope for peaceful generations and prosperity.
I came to realization that world, as we know it, has been constantly changing towards a more perceptive way, rather than solely relying on physical features and monetary success.
This, eventually contribute to evolution process, and we, humans, may have a tiny hope into ascending towards manifestation of great things.
My lettering is an artsy way of merely symbolizing my “heavy” friday post… :)))
I am feeling a little emotional *especially* today, folks!
I hope you enjoy today’s lettering and have a LOVELY weekend !
This just in; Ekin creates this ‘order’ in the lack of a plain t-shirt !
Luckily it turned out great and the client loved it 🙂 The pocket detail was a minor one, and I thought I could still pull of a little line *and* have a great design in the front.
But I didn’t want any fuss at any point of the shirt, so I thought “why not include it in the design?” The zip acted like a cute mouth to the monster and It made the client want to throw some actual cookies in! At least that’s what She said !!
It’s officially summer, everybody! At least here, where I live in Izmir 🙂
It has been a hectic road of thunders and rains not long ago, but from couple of days on, the sun is shining!
The good weather effected my creativity, as well, I think! I was inclined to make anything joyous and fun. I got orders on the “owlsome buddies” but I kindly asked them If I could do a slightly different version that has been stuck in my head. Both my clients said yes, I mean, when someone says ” Hey, I have more elaborate design with more figures in it, ” you say “Go ahead!”
Anyhow, here are the final products! :
How do you like them? Any feedback is very much appreciated.:)
and remember, they can be yours, too!
This authentic original equin-co owl designs are here to make your day better 🙂
Ok, as I promised (better late than ever! ) I am posting more birthday photos. I mean, regarding design.. This one, I got so many orders, from fellow year-mates (if it is such a word :)) I was exhausted making 25-year-old t-shirts!
I basically wore this one three days in a row. All weekend, to all kind of family, friend, work celebrations:)
But, I didn’t make it ALL about me. (hard to believe, huh?)
I made these to my cousins to wear all together. Thanks to their unlimited contributions to my line of clients and their inner glow, they gave me enormous energy!
In another news, you can go to my instagram page, to purchase my artwork now!
I patiently waited for my gallery to open, apparently there has been people wait listed, because it ain’t that easy to get it. 🙂
Additionally, my two cents about the ongoing arguments whether the instagram photographer is a “real photographer” : I, personally think it really is questionable if *everyone* on instagram is an artist. Don’t think so. But, and that’s a big BUT, there are some very very talented people on there, as well.
I am a little out of the subject to talk, because I don’t shoot landscape, or portrait or anything photograph-artistic worthy, I shoot my drawings, or collaborations (i.e. pretzel owls) so that kinda makes sense in a pop art form.
Although I agree with people that stand against *everyone* who has a smart phone to act like an artist and sell their crappy shoots, I support this kind of attempts, because you never know, maybe everyone really IS an artist! I mean, who and what defines Art, anymore?
I talked too much today:)
Have a lovely week and hope everyone has celebrations, birthdays, etc to have fun on this week!
