Making Processes…

Hello everyone!!

It’s a VERY hot day, where I am, but thank god there’s air conditioning:)

Here are couple of collages/collaboration processes from my creative painting process, enjoy!

Everything has Beauty…

Hand lettered and digitized -equinco-all rights are saved.

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 !

I only miss you when I’m Breathing.. aaah.

Hand lettered in ink on paper and digitized caption “I only miss you when i’m breathing”

Proceeding with song lyrics…

Today’s song is “Breathing” by Jason Derulo. I’m all for listening to mainstream radio and pop music at the moment, so, sorry this is all you get guys.

🙂

But I do like the lyrics of this song, and you can listen to it here.

I have felt like I miss someone like, as I’m breathing, every second. I know lots of people who have felt the same, so this gooey romantic piece goes for all of us 🙂

Not necessarily suffering, though. You can still miss and love someone without the pain and the drama, just sheer joy and sweet blues when you are not around them. (You know I like to keep things light’n’happy, come on.)

So, enjoy today’s drawing!

Cheers and happy week!

Happiness !

Today, I’d like to put emphasis on happiness, and happiness only!

Just stop for a second. Stop what you are doing and be happy! Don’t make excuses, don’t hesitate, don’t “but, bla bla bla” Just be grateful that you are breathing and be happy!

Try this at least twice a day, you *will* see results!

Art! Do you think this one is?

"Art is what you can get away with" lettering in pink, yellow, purple and red, on pink cotton t-shirt

A famous quotation by Andy Warhol, “the pop art king” per se, contributed in numerous speculations about contemporary art, classic art and a little bit of mockery about “naked men sitting on rocks”. For me, Art has no rules, what pleases the eye, is worthy of display and/or usage.

Some die hard scholars might disagree, that the classic form of effort bearing art with golden rules and whatnot deserves all the credit, while a mere soup can is unworthy of any attention.

But Typography and lettering came a looooong way from what they have been, too.

So has illustration and digitally altered imagery. They used to be all rules and they got evaluated as “good” and “bad” but now, universally, most types of “art” is appreciated. Even to the point where uneven, unclassified, material-free installations are applauded by art experts.

I, myself consider this t-shirt a work of art! What do you think, does it aesthetically please you?

Here are more “Art” for you to have a wonderful week!

I’d love your feedback.

and this.

Cheers!

Hands up in the air, People who don’t Work!

 

A job you love=never working another day
caption in color ink

 

There is a famous Turkish actor that once in an interview said, “I have never worked a day in my life.”
He  enjoys what he does and it obviously shows as he is very good at what he does.

I also always hear my father saying “I am having fun. What is this, work? We don’t work, we live, we enjoy what we do and make a living out of it.”

I must state that although he is an architect and the most artsy person I know, he “works” very hard. He is always on the run, always productive and creative. If that doesn’t teach me the key of life, I don’t know what will.

🙂

Being blown away with the invention I just had; I doodled something at the office, only to realize, this *thing* I love passionately should give me the life I deserve!

So here you go; the text should tell it all.

 

Anyway, though, I am still very young and working at a design office *as well as* making free lance work is not tiring me at all ! Not yet anyways, but I would definitely want to resign. Making everyone so happy with my t-shirts so that I am very happy with my creations and earnings! That’s the goal 🙂

Have a super nice week, everyone!

 

 

Bang bang!

For those of you who are as keen on classic songs as me, this print goes for them.

I used to love the soft voice Nancy Sinatra, but I do appreciate the lyrics, so every cover is fine for me ! The original of the song is by Cher, written by Sonny Bono and released in 1966.

You can listen to this beautiful song here.

Although it is a sad song, it bears some kind of romance and beauty. Anyways, I like the lyrics, a lot, and due to the fact that I illustrate quotes I find meaningful, this fits perfectly.

Have a nice week everyone and enjoy!!
