But that’s only assuming that I was actually missed lol. All jokes aside- it feels good to be posting again…I have so many updates. For those of you who have been with me throughout this journey know that I have been building a brand from ground…up. You have witness my trials and tribulations- and now it’s time for me to share some of my triumphs. Just recently, I was selected amongst 350 designers and artist to participate in this design show by the name of UNIQUE LA, which happens to be the largest independent design show in the country, and the only show to focus on modern, curated MADE-IN-AMERICA goods. This was my first time participating in anything like this- so I was extremely nervous. After months of preparation leading up to the 2-day event- designing, creating, editing, adding, subtracting, and editing some more…I was finally ready for the world and I am so thankful that my hard work was received well.
Thanks again Aisha, Marat, and Sonja for giving me the opportunity to shine. And thank you to all of my friends, family, and everyone else who came out to support me and my brand. And last but not least- a special thank you to Traci Alexis for helping me throughout this whole process and being there to make sure everything went smoothly.
Day 1 Recap
Day 2 Recap
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to shoot some promo visuals for Paisley Sockwear. Her are a few of my favorites.
Thanks again Maceo for the opportunity. And I can’t forget Russell and Aisha- thank you both for coming through in the clutch and loaning me your time.
I just released my first product of the year and I can honestly say that it is only a small indication of what’s to come from TEM in 2013. Just stay tuned and I will try to follow up more regularly. But for now I would like to direct your attention to the new ‘Essential’ Tee that I released this past Friday.
It was made and printed right here in Los Angeles (🇺🇸) from my original pattern using a super-soft combed ringspun cotton and it is slim-fitting. I didn’t over-think this one during the design process, and you shouldn’t over-think it when you wear it. The ‘Essential’ Tee is a versatile no-brainer. Hope you enjoy!

Today in the mail, I received a limited edition poster from UK artist Adam Grüning from his first solo exhibition “Designed For Life”. I plan on getting it framed this weekend along with the 3 postcards he sent of pieces from his exhibit.
Thanks again Adam!
And the journey continues. This year should be real interesting to say the least.

Not quite the Mackintosh I’ve been dreaming about, but this will definitely suffice for now.

Doesn’t she make the TEM Logo tee look good?! Thank you Sabrina for the support- I appreciate you!
Fun fact: Last week I had the opportunity to spend a brief moment with Iman while shooting her portrait, and though it was our first time officially meeting…she has the type of presence and spirit that makes you feel as if you have known her for years- just a good person to be around.
I love what she represents and her mission as an artist resonates with me. Iman is definitely someone follow. Check out here interview here: CwG- Iman Milner
