California Dreamin' - Guest Post for The Explorationists

So earlier this month I wrote a guest post for my friends The Explorationists about moving to LA, starting over & facing your fears. This was the first time I took a shot at writing, usually I prefer to just have the visuals speak for themselves, but the whole process was really satisfying. Not to mention the great feedback! So I hope you enjoy it & feel free to tell me what you think.

Kaleidoscope Stickers

The first batch of kaleidoscope stickers are in & are prefect for sticker bombing things (your unsuspecting friends, ugly buildings, or anything for that matter). Now comes the fun part. Packaging design & branding & soon they will be up in the shop! 

Walt Disney Concert Hall

This place was a geometric/line heaven & pretty much blew my mind. Here are a couple pics for you to enjoy & if you ever get a chance to visit this concert hall, do.

To the West Coast

A couple weeks ago I packed up all my things & moved across country to the Golden State. A total of some 2,800+ miles over 6 days from Greenville > New Orleans > Austin > Marfa > Albuquerque > Phoenix > LA. It was one of the most amazing & daunting road trips I've ever taken in my life because I stubbornly decided to make the drive by myself! But broke up the trip with stops to see friends & family along the way & of course some beautiful sights like White Sands, Marfa, Montezuma's Castle & the Prada art instillation.

100 Day Project: Round 2

About a year ago I joined Elle Luna's 100 Day Project on Instagram & decided to start making geometric patterns. It ended up being such an amazing outlet that I turned those patterns into framed prints, sold the rights to one & even started a few collaborations with other designers. So many good things resulted out of that last 100 Day Project that I decided join in again for round 2.

Yesterday, April 6th, was the beginning of the second 100 Day Project where Elle Luna teamed up with The Great Discontent. So join in, it's not to late! 

This time around I'm going to be making Metaphorical Collaged GIF's. So we'll see where this goes! Good luck & let me know what you end up making.

West Coast Road Trip

I recently took a solo road trip up the West coast & was blown away by the beauty, architecture & colors that surrounded me from LA > Big Sur > SF > Portland > Seattle. Specifically in SoCal/LA, every day held a new adventure. Traveling solo was such an amazing experience too, it opened me up to the journey that came my way, something I've never quite experienced when traveling with a friend. 
Here are some of my favorite shots.
