Excerpts from my recent collaboration with @style_territory x @beautybytejj x @ethmalosa.
It’s rather difficult putting together a team of incredible people to work together on an idea, especially when you’re all “perfectionists”. Lol. Schedules have to find a way to sync, ideas get scrutinized from top to bottom, reshuffled, analyzed and eventually the end-product looks nothing like what you had in mind. It actually turns out even better. At first, it’s hard to see it, especially when you’ve been completely overcome by the way you envisioned the idea. But the real awesome part is, when you relax, take a deep breath and try hard to look at things from a new, different perspective, you realize you’re looking at an incredible piece of art, put together by the best minds. This is exactly how I feel, every single time I step out my comfort zone to do work. It’s an opportunity to see things a different way every single time, and learn while at it. I had an interesting time making these images with the team.
Thanks to the wonderful guys at Bottles Restaurant, VI, for letting us use their amazing space.
What do you guys think?
