In Bacardi Legacy I didn’t make it as far as last year, but I did get collaborate with Cassie and spend time in Taiwan (first time in 8 years) share the rich culture and attempt to sum it up in my Adelante cocktail. Cocktail competitions are a thrill, as it really is a way for me to see how hard I can push myself. Cheers to everyone that supported me and cheers to @marlowejohnson as he heads to the finals! You’re gonna kill it bud! Even in the darkest of night, Always Forward, Always Adelante! #bacardilegacy#alwaysforward 📸:@craftedcocktail
i was curious as to what the history was of an african doll. i found that traditionally, dolls were passed down from mother to daughter as a charm to ensure fertility. depending on region, they were made from beads, leather, plant fiber, nuts and shells. the nuts and shells used for the purpose of having a similar shape to the male sex organ and often seen worn around the dolls neck.

I’m getting back to the basics.

I’ve been offline the past two weeks cause, to be completely transparent, a lot of not-so-great stuff has went down that I wasn’t expecting. But I’ve been really sick of focusing on the negative aspects of these problems and have started focusing on the positive side of things. They’ve made me re-think what I’m doing and what I actually need to do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s basically been a total wake-up call. I’ve been clearing a lot of my calendar, giving myself a ton more me time to be able to explore creatively and actually paint. I’m currently in the middle of a re-model for Gutzi Design’s whole entire business model as well, which is actually super fun and will help streamline the process more for my future and current clients. I also fit in time to actually breath, rest, and get healthy so I can keep up with the workload I do have. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I guess what I’m trying to say is you can either let things weigh you down or propel you forward, Good or bad. And I’m going to take these lemons and make something fantastic with them. 💙💛💚⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here is one of my favorite acrylic paintings I’ve ever done, and there will definitely be more to come. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
