4. You have worked with many different people/ companies on projects,
what has been your favorite so far?
I've really enjoyed them all, collaborating or being commissioned by companies has always presented great challenges and pushed me in directions I'd never have gone in otherwise. I've especially enjoyed working with DanceJa and it's founder Latonya Style, she's such a creative and motivated person, it's great when you can get that energy and vibe going.
5. How did you fall into the line of work you are in now?
I've always loved drawing and working with my hands so it was just a natural progression I suppose.
6.Is there anything that would surprise someone out side of your line
of work that occurs sometimes or that may have happened to you?
I'd say a lot of people seem to be surprised at how much discipline I have to have. I have to be very self motivated and the pressure at times can be intense when I'm working to a deadline, so time management is a very important lesson I've learned.
7. In your line of work who would you consider the "top dog" ?
There are loads of top dogs in the art world. My list of personal heroes is massive, here are a few off the top of my head - Tony McDermott, Sheppard Fairey, Ferry Gouw, Steve Powers & Mr Nurse of Nurse Signs
8. 5 years from now , where do you see yourself career wise?
Doing what I love best :)
9.Is there anything different about some of the projects you've worked
on that you would want to do differently?
Not really. Every project offers a learning opportunity. I try not to look back on projects and say what could I have done better, that will just drive a person mad. I prefer to look at them and reflect on what I learnt and how I can apply the lessons to the next projects.
10. What some advise you would give someone who aspires to do the same
thing you are doing?
Be self motivated; Use fear and uncertainty as creative fuel; Keep going.

You just got paid and your super excited because you can finally pick up the new Fenty X Puma collection that you've been waiting for since last year. BOOM BUT THEN bills bills bills coming in like Destiny's Child and you realize you have about less then 30 bucks left and you still need an outfit for back to school party on the weekend. I'm here to help you with all that with my 4 tips on how to find the perfect outfit for back to school,a bashment or just taking a Lime Rude gyal style.
Never Underestimate the power of your friends closet. People gain and lose weight all the time that's life and of course everyone has friends of all shapes and sizes. If you have a roommate this might work better but ask a friend if they have anything they don't wear anymore or if you guys are the same size borrow the worse they can say is no and if they say yes maybe they have a bag full of things they don't want and you didn't even know. Now you have free pants.
Tip Two If hand me downs aren't your thing,SALES SALES SALES . Never underestimate the power of a sale. Even if the sale rack has things from the past seasons. For me the best deals happen when you buy off season sale racks. Of course finding your size may be hard but your wallet will thank you.
Value Village is LIFE!. Again this isn't for the people who can't handle the second hand ting. Value village has secret gems you just really have to look. Think of it as a thrift store version of winners. There will always be a deal on something great. Both of my outfits below feature items from there
REWORK! This is huge for me majority of my old tshirt that were too big for me i converted into crop tops. Jackets can be patched ,jeans can be made into shorts and the list goes on there is tons of DIY on youtube (be on the lookout for mine). Unless the item smells or you really just don't want it in can always be worn a different way.
Hopefully that helps you on finding your perfect outfit pon a budget.Hit me up and let me know your Tips!
