What if you could wake up every day and do something you loved? For years I wondered how this would feel. I would daydream about working for myself and doing something Ioved. When I first started freelancing I didn't know how to manage my time well. I didn't realize that I needed to book myself as a client to create and paint. If I didn't book myself as a client, then there would never be time. I've used this time to revisit my childhood dreams.
Since I was a kid I've always sketched and painted. As a teenager, I got into Lowrider Magazine. I saw guys who were airbrush artist full time. The lifestyle seemed so cool but out of reach. I couldn't afford an airbrush and I didn't know anyone to teach me, so I would hand paint model 64 Impala's with a paintbrush and rattle can.
At this time I also started painting old sneakers. I would tape them off, repaint them, and make custom designs with a sharpie. The shoes never came out as dope as I envisioned them. I wanted to design and create a shoe that I would wear. Something comfortable that would look good in the morning at the coffee shop on the beach, or in the evening at the lounge spot downtown.
These shoes will be available soon at the online store. Sign up for my email list to be alerted and for a discount code. Leave some feedback in the comments below. What’s the dream that you’re creating? What would you spend your perfect day doing?
