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!

For those of you who can’t survive without Coffee.

 

I used to drink a lot of coffee when I was in college, but now I am trying to cut back a little. I’m also a big fan of tea- any kind; green, black, herbal- so it is not a big problem when I cut on coffee, as I have an alternative to abuse .:)

But I know a lot of people who can’t face the day of light without a grande americano, including my mom! She makes a huge pot every morning, believe me, even the smell of it is enough to wake me up!

My coffee habits are  now limited to some caramel macchiato every two or three days, in the afternoon, when I am in the mood for some chilling.

What are your coffee habits? Are you a coffee person? I’d love your feedback,

Cheers!

Owl is funny… So is my sketch.

Ok, remember the time where I had an epic fail trying to draw neat lines with a marker -without a pencil outline-and that “sketch” turned into a marker drawing?

This is the very place where I had a relatively post success regarding the creation of this cute little bastard.

Enjoy!

I personally find this “Week” very happy and energizing! I quoted week, because it is too early to evaluate since it’s only monday!!

Even though I am pretty busy at work and my best couple friends are getting married this weekend, and I am the maid of honor (which means a huugue load more work!) I feel euphoric 🙂

Hope everyone has had a nice start off to the week.

Cheers!-

If You Are Stressed, Turn it Around, You Have a Cupcake!

lettering -ink on paper

We have a common notion, us humans. Whenever we are stressed, we get more and more and more stressed ! Then we can’t solve problems *because* we are stressed, we get even more frustrated because we can’t solve a problem. It is all a chain reaction with stress.

But I believe (and it is encouraged) to stop for a second, hit the pause and *then* analyze the situation. Most the time it isn’t half as bad, besides, when you take time to observe the ongoing situation, you have a clearer view and more peaceful mind to deal with the issue.

Of course, same with everything, practice and persistence makes perfect.

“It isn’t so easy!!” you may yell over there, hey, no one said anyone gets off without practicing.

But let me put your mind at ease, it ain’t so hard, either.

Everytime you are “stressed”, try to flip the words, you get a sweet sweet “desserts” ! 🙂

That being a metaphor, my point is, life is in perfect harmony, every single being, occasion, place has its perfect balance of good and evil. The choice is ours to make. One can look at an issue and see it as complete disaster, while another person could see the opportunity and blessing at the exact same subject.

Try, you’ll see, it works wonders!

Good day to you all:)

Oh, and don’t forget to wear it around, maybe it’ll get easer to see things sweeter.. 🙂

Pretzel Power!

Owls being delicious

I was having a snack couple of nights ago while I was drawing. So being the awesome person I am, I decided, “hey, why don’t I combine these activities all together?”

Ended up with this piece.

Lately I figured I really am obsessed with converting words into completely different ones, i’m especially nuts with inserting “owl”s. Well, let’s see how that turns out to be.

Enjoy the deliciowlness!

World’s Social Problems

Socially awkward

Having the social media at our fingertips, even more than ever today, makes us struggle a little in the material world. Being the “social” people we are in Facebook, twitter and whatnot , it seems to me that we forget how to act among the “friends” we so often interact via web, but not in face-to-face contact.

That, of course, results in awkward silences, not so fun moments, and most saddening of all, leaving us wanting to share a video to break the ice.

I would love to wear that shirt in public, maybe that’ll bring us something to talk about in case of emergencies!

Oh, there is the tshirt !
