You can brand anything

I'm taking a small "creative break" because I can't seem to collect enough juices to come up with something fresh right now. So I spent some time yesterday reading on the net about everything from skincare to fashion. You know how the creative bug creeps up on you when you're not exactly doing anything design related. Then I came across this. (check above) What first intrigued me was the fact that this woman had on the same black translucent shirt I've had my eyes on at the store and underneath ( because I'm such a sucker for details), the exact same black body suit with weave pattern paneling that I had my eyes on from Nevermind that, she was leaning on this lamp post. See anything? A CHANEL lamp post. Okaaay...maybe Chanel is taking over the world but quite frankly, I realized, " You can brand anything!" And how successful your branding is, is what determines how successful your business will be. You're selling people an idea. You plant a seed of an idea and it takes over them like a virus. And how "infected" they are, all depends on the strength in that little seed you created. Quite simple no? But so fascinating. Well, something else to ponder about.

ps: I watched inception 2 days ago. It was brilliant.

Nike 6.0 Mogan Mid artwork 2

Hello all

This is the second version I've done for another customized sneaker. You'll notice this one's a little darker and that you can now see "all" the paint splashes. I like the little touch of sand colored paint on the sole...that keeps it a bit quirky; A bit me.

My Nike 6.0s...customized by myriadmedia for Missotten&Frances

Hello all

I just finished this yesterday and it should've only taken me 20-30 minutes max. to get this done but I was being too much of a perfectionist (i took half a day instead). I know....I can hear the whole design crowd going, "Booo~ What the hell?!" Anyway, this artwork was created for my customized pair of Nike 6.0 Mogan Mids. I like the way the paint looks like its splattered and poured, as if trying to say creating this shoe was like fine art: A whole harmonious mix of color. I'm in love with this model and a couple others....I'm such a sneaker junkie.

People collect Barbie dolls and comic figurines. Well I collect sneakers =X I'm getting married in my very own customized white sneakers. Booyah.

ps: The logo in the bottom right corner is the a sneak preview of Missotten&Frances' new logo. I think it kick's ass.

EXAMS! They were over with slower than they arrived

hello all,
I have to apologize for disappearing and not posting..I've not died yet; I was out of my mind busy with exams! I had my entry exam for graphic design on tuesday and with good news too (i'm so happy). But here, the above drawing was a pictorial presentation of who i am, how i am without being literal. Take note of the style used and color placement ;)

This one here was the 2nd assignment I had to prepare for the entry exam too and it's my interpretation of a tree. My idea of a tree ( again not in the literal sense) after doing a little literature research. The dutch phrase translates to " absorbed by wrath?" My interpretation of the idea of a tree from a poem by William Blake:

A Poison Tree by William Blake

I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

And I watered it in fears
Night and morning with my tears,
And I sunned it with smiles
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And it grew both day and night,
Til it bore an apple bright,
And my foe beheld it shine,
And he knew that it was mine.

And into my garden stole
When the night had veiled the pole;
In the morning, glad, I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.
