Morning routine is the most important part of the day?
Yes sure first you have to get a good sleep, but morning routine... It’s something that fuels your whole day. It’s true and you know it!
Get up and go instantly for a little meditation like 5 minutes, set up your goals, get ready for the day, do a bit of sport to wake your body up 10-15 minutes just a stretch is ok... and still... don’t touch your phone! Go wash your face, get a breakfast and wake up your brain, like brain gymnastics (there is some great apps for that) train logic, reflexes, memory etc. Get something to read if you have time for it!
And now your whole body and mind are ready for the day! Short routine 100% helpful
And don’t forget... now yes, you can take your phone :)
Have a great day ya’ll <3
“Why are you painting your tree fluorescent green ?” When I was studying art and design at college I started making papier-mâché items for set design, one piece was a giant mangrove root that I could literally crawl under and paint and sculpt from underneath.￼ It was a fantastic time, getting paint in my hair and everywhere else. I was painting my tree whilst sitting on the floor in the middle of the studio and the rest of my group could see what I was doing from their desks. I was really keen to get a really cool textured bark effect on my model. So what I did was - I found this really old paint in a hardware store that was kind of gone off and lumpy and was basically scraping it onto my model with a fork to create texture of bark. But this paint was bright green and people were looking at me funny.. When the green paint texture layer had dried, I painted it brown and then did a really light brush paint over the top to create a lighter colour and the bark looked amazing.￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼ This was a very important lesson for me in my creative career, realising that people will see an unfinished product of yours but you have a vision in mind - stick to that vision and it doesn’t matter how it looks when you want to talk about it halfway along the process. This idea is something that has stuck with me throughout my whole creative career, to be confident in your end vision, open to feedback and to share work even if, at that moment in time, it doesn’t look quite right 😊 embrace the fact that it is a “work in progress” and you want feedback but also have confidence in your own creative vision, the end goal.￼ I always think of my green “work in progress” tree when I have to share draft versions of work to clients, even though what I am showing doesn’t match my end vision, I want to bring my client on the creative journey with me 😊 x
I’m so happy to finalise this music video project, and one of my first fully realised creative projects that I can share. A turning point in my creative career was my decision to move away from corporate work and focus on ART. I had 6 years corporate design under my belt and NO portfolio work that I could share. I spent a year of self study and have initiated a few projects now making videos for musicians .. I realised I didn’t have to play this corporate, idealised, robotic role anymore and could be my full self !! It is so fricken fun !!
