Can you please tag in any of your friends or family who you know deserves the attention. Whether they are an artist, musician, rapper, chef, actor, poet or anything else they’re ambitious about. I would love to go show them some love. Maybe we all can.

Im just saying to give the creatives work some more time. And, I'm not talking just about myself, and I'm certainly not talking just about Illustration. Being around so many creatives within the industry, I definitely see how much planning, orchestration and commitment it takes to see an idea come to life. I think the emphasis lies in taking just a little longer.

Don't see something for what it is. Go a little deeper. We're all accustomed to sip and swallow only what we believe in and it can become satisfyingly comfortable, but why do we need to scroll by what doesnt make sense. It's true, what may have taken you five seconds to pass by, may have taken five weeks to produce. While dancers, singers, poets, chefs and artists continue to put their heart and soul into their passion, give them further reason to continue. Not all of them require the attention and not all need that supportive whisper, but giving it anyway can never be a waste of your energy. The more we share, the more we have, right?

What am I trying to say? Well, to all those watering ideas, know that not everything will be understood, but thats okay. I know the best is yet to come and while everything is serving its purpose the reality is, everyones a critic and sometimes you get what you don't deserve. And for the audience, either support them with your time or wear the invisibility cape ...you decide. It goes a long way to let each other know you're there. We've lost the art of sharing and caring and I think we need to bring it back - because its cool. It's always better to give than receive. Try it.

Look around you and look inside you. How many people do you think are settling? I will tell you: a hell of a lot of people. People are settling every day into okay relationships and okay jobs and an okay life. And do you know why? Because okay is comfortable. Okay pays the bills and gives a warm bed at night and allows one to go out with co-workers on a Friday evening to enjoy happy hour. But do you know what okay is not? Okay isn’t thrilling, it isn’t passion, it isn’t the reason you get up every day; it isn’t life-changing or unforgettable. Okay is not the reason you go to bed late and wake up early. Okay is not the reason you risk absolutely everything you’ve got just for the smallest chance that something absolutely amazing could happen.

Find balance in your life. Work hard but don’t let work take over your life, you will lose yourself. Love, but love for the right reasons. Life is too short for anything mediocre. Know who you are and know that you worthy of reaching your dreams and that it is never too late to start creating that life you have always dreamed of. Do not compare yourself to others, that’s just deadly. No two souls are the same. You are your person, you are beautiful and you are unique. Put your trust in the universe. Some things are just meant to happen, and some are not. Let go of whatever is stealing your happiness, it’s hard but it’s worth it. Embrace change. Embrace life. Everything happens for a reason, sometimes you just need to breathe, trust and let go. (2018)

#ThursdayThinks Revisit | 58 | People Pleasers
—————
Having met a fan on the train I was in conversation and reminded of a Thursday Thinks in relation to becoming a people pleaser.
—————
There have been times, where I have been out of ideas. I was stimulating my creativity, but it became what the public desired rather than what I as an artist wanted to share. Theres only so much joy 'likes and retweets' could give me and pleasing people made me happy until it became desperation.

It took me some time to realise that its not about the outside and the inside is where the core of growth lives. I decided I wasn't going to please people anymore and start doing artwork for myself. And so it became that. My artwork became my visual diary, my experiences, tackling the norms of relatable social visuals in a complete different light.

What am I trying to say? The second I started doing artwork for myself, I stopped feeling redundant. The same way others can by doing whats true to you rather than the whispers. The more I became honest about my artwork, the more of an honest audience I received and Id like to think you're reading this because you genuinely relate in some way rather than just enjoying bright colours. Don't worry if you don't fit in someone else's box, you don't belong there anyway so don't be afraid to disappoint. As Eleanor told me, 'do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you'll be criticised anyway.' Expression is a beautiful thing. Can you relate?

It is our own mental attitude which makes the world what it is for us. Our thoughts makes things beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly. The whole world is in our own minds. Learn to see things in the proper light. There are two types of people, which are you? (2018)

I feel the artist is so undervalued. Theres a certain level and skill it takes to become one, and Im not talking about the skill in brush strokes or the precision in detail towards our work, I mean the skill it takes to courageously put forward work relative to emotions and experiences.

Artists are probably the most dangerous beings when it comes to sharing an experience or telling a story. As someone who has indulged in the Arts all my life, sadness and heartbreak can be an excellent motivator. I've always felt expressing my emotions were best released through creativity than tears. Sometimes its excited me to be hurt, is that weird?

See we the Artists have a way in showing what matters and what mattered, how we conquered and how we escaped. What helped us survive and how we got back up. But it comes down to you giving us your time. We can convert any tragic experience into a visual beauty and we can translate a negative emotion into something out of this world. Don't overlook those close to you creating. Word of advice, watch out for the artist, we're ready to pull the trigger on the brush if need be...

What are your views on Mr West? Genius amongst us or has he lost the plot? Discuss.

I am learning to say yes. To be daring and spontaneous, to hurl myself into people and places and moments without hesitation or second-guessing myself - to challenge my anxieties, to confront my fears and trust unwaveringly in chance and fate to lead me to where I am supposed to be... and that is all explained in this Illustration from 2015 titled ‘Lemon And Lime’.

I've mentioned this artist before - he is a source of motivation for me and his work intrigues me due to the depth of his vision. One of his latest pieces co-incided with my birthday message perfectly - read his explanation (it's worth it). The universe is always watching and working 🙏🏽

Check him out if you haven't already 🙌

The Bigger The Moon The Bigger The Memory (2018)
.
"You might think you don't matter in this world, but because of YOU someone hears a song and it reminds them of you. Someone has a favourite mug to drink their tea or if each morning that you bought them. Someone has read a book you recommended to them and gotten lost in its pages. Someone's remembered a joke you told them and smiled to themselves on the train. Someone's tried on a top and felt beautiful because you complimented them on it. Someone has a memory that makes them from that involves you. Someone more like themselves that little bit more because you made a passing comment that made them feel good. Never think you don't have an impact, your fingerprints can't be wiped away from the little male of kindness that you've left behind."
