Yeezus Tour

Hello All,

I am a lover of Stylesight.com.  I view the website and blog often for trend research, as well as street style in fashion.  So when I saw the latest post on Stylesight's blog, I had to comment on it.

The "Yeezus Tour" is a 5-day pop-up shop which is located on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles, right next to his fiancĂ©e, Kim Kardashian's Boutique, DASH.  It does not surprise me that he would have his pop up shop next to Kim Kardashian so they could both reap every type of fame possible, but what does surprise me is what is inside of this pop-up shop.

The shop houses baseball hats for $35 (shocking), sweatshirts for $80, tote bags for $20, and t-shirts
with the old Metallica logo from $35-50.  Why does he have the Metallica logo? No one will ever know.  What really surprised me was the Confederate flag was the inspirational motif of this collection. He even took it s step further by hanging actual Confederate flags around the shop, with the caption, "I AIN'T COMING DOWN!" To me, this is very offensive, and quite crazy for West to have this flag as a major motif in his collection.  To every person of color, the Confederate flag shows a sign of segregation and racism.  If West actually knew his history, he would not baste his collection on this flag, but knowing Kanye, it is another publicity stunt.  If you want to view the pictures of the collection, please go to http://blog.stylesight.com/travel/los-angeles-yeezus-tour

If you actually want to travel to LA to see this collection, by all means, go ahead! The world is free.  If you do not want to travel to LA, or attend one of West's concerts, you can view his collection on the Pacsun website, www.pacsun.com.

Until Next Time

I hope all is well.  I have been quite sad for the past 3 days.  Sunday morning, I was working on some sketches, and then went to bed.  Later that night, I opened my laptop, only to see that it would not turn on. I called HP, but found one rep to be very rude! After looking for more solutions on Google, I took it to my cousin the next day. The crazy thing is that after putting Adobe Suite CS4 on my sister's computer so I can continue working on illustrations, her laptop did the same thing as mine! So now, there are two laptops in my household, with Adobe Suite CS4, to be inoperable!  Am I jinxed? Are my fingers cursed? Is it that every computer I touch freezes?

I am frustrated because I have work to finish, and I am unable to continue because of this issue. What makes it worse is that I am in an area where no one has ever heard of Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop, there is no computer available with this software, and I am afraid that if this is not fixed, I will not be able to create my magic. I pray this can be fixed because there is no way I can afford another computer! It is not in my budget right now. Help!

I need to breathe, pray again, and have faith I will be back in business!

Until next time!

New Illustrations

Hello All,

I know it has been a while since I posted something.  I have been super busy living in my creativity.  It is awesome doing something you love.  My loves are fashion, art, and illustration, and to have the talent to use all three creative genres at once is amazing.  While I was away, I started doing fashion illustrations of some of my favorite celebrities.  Here are three illustrations I have already finished.

Sanya Richards-Ross

Tamar Braxton

Toni Braxton

I am currently working on a fashion illustration of RuPaul.  I will post it when finished.

Also, I am in a art/design competition.  If possible, I would like for you to vote for me.  Here is the link:
