Man I love that mostly all of my friends are pursuing their dreams. This is my buddy Rhyan Santos and he’s an amazing photographer. Next week he’ll be showcasing his artwork for his “The Things We Carry” photo exhibit. It’s in Fullerton which is a long ways from me so I’ll be happy for someone to join me so we can roll in the carpool lane- let me know.
Yesterday I spent most of the day fabric shopping and I’m very happy with my results…now let’s see how quick I can bring this garment(s) to life.
The “TEM Logo Tee” releases in 24 hours exactly.
I’m ready…are you ready?
Two of the biggest things I’ve learned (and still learning) throughout this whole journey is: (1) to “respect the progress of a baby-step” (<adopted from a Kendrick Lamar verse) and (2) to really understand that just because something isn’t produced/presented on/in a large scale that does not equate into it being insignificant.
See, it took me forever to realize that it’s the small (intangible) steps that truly lay the foundation for (tangible) progress/success. So now when someone asks me a question like “how come you only have 3 items in your store” it doesn’t bother me
as much because I know that I’m only laying my own foundation.
Great news!!! The TEM Logo Tees are finally complete. And prior to this brief lunch break I just took, these last few hours have consisted of me ironing each shirt (next investment…a steamer), and packaging them individually. Yeah- I know, i’m a straight intern right about now ahahaha.
Fun Facts: The TEM Logo Teewas designed, made, and printed in the USA and it will be available Monday, April 2nd at 12p (PST).
You remember that fabric I got the other day? Well today I dropped it off with my sewing contractor and he told me that I will have some results in the next week or so. Here’s a sneak peak of what I’m working on.
(Sidebar: I’m getting pretty good at these CAD illustrations- huh!)
Literally- a few days ago I didn’t know how to create CAD illustrations from scratch…look at me now. I guess the old adage is true- “anything is possible when you put your mind to it”.
I’m up trying to break this learning curve of mine, and really master how to produce CAD illustrations from scratch. A few years ago I learned how manipulate already made CAD’s, but I never learned how to make my own from scratch. Here’s my second attempt…this time around I tried to make something a less complicated. Not bad for an amateur.
Up early and I came across a lil’ inspiration that I wanted to share with my fellow creatives…have a good day everyone!
