I really want to learn to draw Tigers 🐅. This was my first attempt yesterday. And Yeah IT looks like shit 💩- but thats just part of the process . I used a image of a real tiger as reference. 🧟‍♂️ I Hope IT evolves to my own styled oldschool Tigers someday 🙏

Untitled -2018

First time I took a garment construction class, I did pretty poorly. Like, I remember pricking myself with the sewing machine needle and bleeding over the first assignment. It was awful. BUT. Of all the things that went horribly wrong for me in that class, THIS...this...went right.
.
My other garments were messy, had crooked stitches, were incomplete, etc etc. But THIS VEST, THO. This assignment basically told me that I was not a complete failure and that I had the competency to follow basic directions.
.
(hopefully I'm not the only one that feels this way but) I generally hate reading sewing patterns because the instructions are sometimes too vague for me to understand. Or the grammar is off. Whatever. I think this contributed to my doing poorly. When I sewed this vest, for whatever reason, the directions didn't seem so confusing.
.
Perhaps the other biggest thing I have to attribute to my success is that I chose very thick fabric (cotton wool). Some of my classmates used medium weight cottons, but for the season (took this class in Autumn), I thought a heavyweight would make more sense.
.
Not sure if all wools sew this way, but this particular fabric sewed like a dream. It didn't shed (side eyeing you, polyester), cut very cleanly and was generally easy to maneuver. Only issue I had was being able to see my stitches.
.
That class gave me so much anxiety, but whenever I look at this vest, I know I have potential.

Did a quick thing just cause I wanted to test out a technique, but idk if I’m into how hard I went with the highlights, whatever though! ✨

One of the topics that we are excited to explore on Same, is Friendship. How each relationship that we have with our friends plays part in ones self-realisation.
We are thrilled to explore this topic through the friendships between Erin,Louis,Sophia and Elizabeth! 💛

This lovely lady saw 3 portraits of herself for the very first time at the Urban Art Fair, after sitting for the artist. While we were taking pictures of her next to the art and with the artist, 2 little girls were looking on open mouthed. They couldn't believe that someone who looked like them was the subject of art. Such a special moment! Representation matters - particularly in the arts where we are currently underrepresented. Please support artists so we can change this. 🎨
