I love to create original clothing. I am a design guy. Not too long ago I took the time to hand paint a whole bunch of plain clothing that I picked out. For some of the garments, I created stencils so I could reuse my choice of design. For other items, I simply created something one of a kind.
One of my goals is to have my own clothing line. My strategy to work towards this is to make a living as a freelance artist. I am experienced in doing graphic design, illustrations, murals, painting, custom clothing and creative writing.
Everyday that I pursue this independently I learn a little more about the challenges that I will face. I have met a lot of people that already have their businesses underway. A lot of them have years of experience on me and it tends to make me even more anxious to get something going for myself.
I love being creative. A great privilege is to be able to make something that other people can see and appreciate for themselves.
