Rhyme and Reason: What are you REALLY willing to do to become Yourself — By Principle not Profit #PrimeNYT

Bless up from your feet to your headtop

We Go Again,

Do people know they can be an artist without being a celebrity and full blown tour entertainer ?

If your role in life is artist you should be very happy with being able to live off the land travel and be a human person not bonded by the prism of how we should be.

Isn’t being an artist not needing to be held by the standard of economics people think they should live by.

I’d go as far to say you would be very being a bum (by social standards) than having to conform to social and economic norms, because you are very happy producing art

This ideal goes the same for soldier, policeman, teacher, fireman, social activist And everyone else who lives by a moralistic standard and not economic one

Certain jobs don’t arise for economic purposes they derive value from how they feed you as a person and come from core beliefs and principle… The only question is how far are you willing to go for those?

This is not one of those times where I say “maybe I’m the weird one” . This is truly the understanding of living by a standard of morals and upholding principles of it than succumbing to economic ideologues who say ‘… should get paid more than footballers’

These professions aren’t about the money they are about the principle and by principle economics does not dictate how good this person is at their job

Rhyme and Reason: Where does the Light giver turn to? God is the one I turn to #PrimeNYT

Bless up from your feet to your head top, keep your neck up,

We go Again

People have often asked me “if you’re everyone’s person, who do you turn to” my answer has been silent for a long time.

That absence of an answer has left me longing for a human connection with someone that understands me, who I am & what I go through. For so long I had asked myself questions; deep penetrating questions since I was a kid. I would talk to myself everyday trying to figure it out and of the parts I did have figured out I would share it with people.

This had people coming back to me for some time but it would not have them respect me as a person I would be someone they take from but would never feel a need to give back to. I would shield them from forsakers when they were not looking and I wouldn’t look for thanks I would want them to be good.

As a person I would expect them to be better humans because no one was coming after them, instead they felt untouchable and that they didn’t need me… my own folly. The day they left would induce a fall from grace, I never liked that not ever.

In 2016-2018 I found myself being the weirdos amongst artists, no one really to relate to, no one who understood me, no one to challenge me or to channel the energy I put out back into me.

So I sit in my room and contemplate my existence hours on end searching for reason and meaning bringing myself to a place to that I can say I like, the meaning I sought after has taken me away from vices and certain toxic behaviour and brought me to a calmer status of life.

The only person I can truly talk to is myself and the only person I lean on is God.

‘Lean on me when you’re not strong, I’ll help you carry on, for it won’t be long till I’m going to need somebody to lean on.’

Such a statement on the world I can’t help but think about while writing this, I ask and God responds. I just want to be a better person for myself and for the people in this world and I find the questions I ask no one, not one of my contemporaries can answer; there is no peer or mentor who feels to seek within themselves a better them in this life. Some of us seek money and admiration, I seek myself on my time on this Earth.

Funny thing is I know exactly who I am and exactly what I am supposed to do I am really just compelled by human persuasion thinking someone like me can’t be accepted by the likes of them. Most of all the people I look up to have been killed by humans, what type of future does that bode for someone like me?

So I turn to God, ask him why me, why this way, why love, why do so many people despair, why can I wash it away, why does speaking to me make other people feel better, why can I draw out somebody’s greatness. The questions go on and on and they roll around my mind seeking to be answered now not by man but by God, I know exactly what I’m capable of why can’t I be selfish with it. Why don’t I care about money or admiration or love of people who are not God? I have no idea how to answer those question and I know those questions aren’t of this world either.

Culture and Camaraderie Podcast: Ep7 — The Events We Make Important (@camaraderiepod)

Hello Comrades

We kicked it off talking about how our weeks went Tyler has got a new job and is exploring new territories in his life, while I see this we speak on what these new factors involved, when we speak on #30DBC and all that it took Tyler to accomplish what he did and having it stop so abruptly having to get to the real reasons that happened and how we’ll be about to move forward from it.

I get into how looking for an event space went and how the conversations I like from other people go. I want to be spoken to nice and professional Tyler doesn’t mind. But either way if I feel my respects aren’t being paid we won’t be doing business and I won’t be bringing work to your establishment

Its really important for me for people to have care ad respect from the offset not everyone is good at it and some people may fall short, but as a man doing business I take respect, and take it seriously. You can’t treat me any kind of way or my money.

Mine and Tylers takes on business seem opposed or he’s playing devils advocate but honestly if I didn’t have business knowhow from the offset I’d be taken for a ride from the start.

A Note On: One Year On From Starting my website #PrimeNYT

Bless Up from your feet to your head top

We go again

It’s even been a year since I started writing articles. And 5 months since I took it seriously,bits been one heck of a journey like seriously I never thought a year later I would have a podcast or writing releasing my books and it’s all because I started this website.

Having this website to express myself is what allowed me to flex that muscle and really be one with my creative process. From the concept and planning of an idea and being able to flesh out an idea in word format all the way to presenting it for people once the idea is done to the state I appreciate.

I have recently started my podcast and my talking ability may be high but it’s not all the way where I want it but when it comes to writing a concept down and going through the process of editing and fleshing it out I have a real good idea of how to do that. Translating that into orator skills is my podcast job and just in there as I do here. I am just honestly thankful I went down this path.

 

I’m pleased to see how this grows, I haven’t been talking about the most zeitgeist things but I have been talking about things that are important to me and its amazing to see they’re important to others.

Talking about contemporary designers principles design ethics mindset and all that isn’t as sexy as all the mainstream outlets would have you believe but they are very important. I talk about designers that get little press but are positively amazing my most inspiring posts have been about Yoon of Ambush and Kerbie of Pyer Moss (who’ll I’ll be writing more on.); who have been read on mystic mortises than any designer, which makes me proud. I had a genuine interest in their greatness and it spread.

Thats the type of energy ~I hope to bring light to contemporary designers and better understanding of what it means to be an artist and have a philosophy. Those code’s will forever be shared as long as this forum exists and I am happy I made it

Stay composed and keep your neck up

OYOS On Top of Your Game

You said you were gonna do something and didn’t. Wow, there are no words for the thing I feel when I don’t execute. It has to be the most uncomfortable feeling there is out there. To say to yourself completely and wholly believe that I was going to do it. A man must take the utmost responsibility for who he is and who he portrays himself to be. You’ve created this image, this veneer, it is your responsibility for anything that comes your way.

Someone so controlled and excellent with words must be wary as their ability to string what must seem like the perfect sentence can come off as honesty, slight or anger when their intentions aren’t aligned with what they say. I cannot just be so cavalier about what I say – I can/can’t/will/won’t do -, this is your moment this is your time to make a mark, your words really do become opportunities. you’ve said you were good at this thing for so long have you taken the time to get great.

There have been really crucial moments where I have given my CV out and my qualifications and experience were perfect but my recent portfolio didn’t match, not because my skills are average but because my what I had to show for myself was. Whether or not I’m excellent, the business doesn’t care my work got deleted, whether my Equipment wasn’t running well at the time, or all the digital files for said work got wiped. It is still my responsibility to make sure that happens less and less. I take full ownership of my fuck ups because they’re mine and I do my best to find an equal or better solution to my problem.

With age comes experience – or people assume so. Theres going to be a time you won’t get that junior position phone call anymore. Your graduation date tips off your minimum age so people will be looking for more experienced work from you. Can you show it? Not saying your work must be worlds apart in the effort put in – we learn to work smarter not harder in an office space. You’re given a key role, does the story in your portfolio reflect that? I’ve noticed this isn’t just artistically, in creative studios. (Business smarts dictate you record how you made a business better, how many sales you made and your value to that company in the time you were there. A case study.) Is the freelance work your doing telling a story of you being able to give more & earn more? EVEN IF ITS FOR FREE! Are the case studies you put together going to pay off? Are your presentation boards in order? The Pitch decks, selling? Real questions you got to ask yourself. You better hope they are, for you not for them. As long as those are in order you will be able to accomplish all things, because when you have all of these things on record you gain something with leverage. Have you been in the position where the work you are doing for a job role is more than was required of you and wasn’t on your responsibilities list? See, that’s what I’m talking about. Now you’re thinking like a pro, that’s leverage.

With age comes experience or it’s assumed to be. during this 23-27 period before you get your more senior /mid-level serious  job offers coming in only so much is asked of you, it is only for us to find out what that is. When you said you were gonna accomplish something for this particular position or path you chose remember you must work for your betterment as well as the betterment of the company. You don’t need to go it alone or Run your own enterprise to know you must be accountable for your own words, your own actions, when you said you were going to do something go do it.

There have been times where I took time off in my sales jobs. (My past doesn’t lie everything is recorded) my performance told me the truth at that moment, I was unable to repeat the results of the past. I didn’t know I wasn’t my past accolades, what I done in University was for them, what I done for my previous job was for them, what I do today is for me, its for this moment.

What I really mean by that is never lose the enthusiasm and never – by any means – rest on your laurels. When I learned this is when I started learning about personal production and positioning. To be able to create my own value just as I did like a spry kid selling chocolates out my backpack and Iced juice during summer terms, of school. I am to be the guy that always produced the goods in the moment I need them most. The best way to do that is to always be ready so you never have to get ready. Knowing my timings, assessing my skill level making sure my CV is up-to-date (as in I can still do all the things I said I could do) are all part of this game called Professional Careers

always remember,

OYOS Acres Of Diamonds

You live in your acres of diamonds

The only reason I’ve ever done as good as I have is by this one thought and philosophical context. However it goes never search too far outside yourself as what you desire might be in a place most familiar. The type of thoughts that run through my mind when people say; ‘maybe I should move out my city.’ Or ‘you could make more money doing this’.

It has been a tale that has been told time and time again that I always have the skills I need at my disposal. I don’t know if I was born talented or super smart but I do know where my strengths lie. My words, my creativity, my vision. Something that uses anyone of those is where my acres of diamonds lay, I have created opportunity after opportunity for myself using/displaying less than 20% of my capabilities. I often think to myself what if I dedicated myself to one specific area how would I feel, where would I bee if I did that for years on end, however I still have it in my mind all my gifts are mine to use and to continue using because they are the gifts granted to me. It really humbles me when I find some people don’t have any or don’t know what their purpose is. It give me more drive to move towards my purpose and create more opportunities for myself so I can soon grant opportunities for others. That is my true work thing ‘work so hard at my jobs so I can create more jobs’ and anything That will allow me to do that I will.

Back to what you have even though It’s minimal you can always do something. I remember when I was dead broke literally no money and my computer broke, all I had was a Mickey Mouse pencil and a couple felt tip pens. This led me to start my fashion Illustration career which I still practice and commission to this day, even though I’m a photoshop guy I decided to use spare paper around the house to hone my manual skills. I remember being broke in university and the only thing I had in my cabinet was corned beef, I whipped that up into gourmet level meal … yeah I said it … GORMET! Remember having no new Ideas and being in-between jobs, all I had was a lawn mower I decided to go round to all my neighbour and ask if they need their grass cut, this particular hustle earned me thousands.

At my ropes end I find I am at my most ingenuous creating some sort of creative endeavour to pursue. Not just in the creative arts but in sales/ online advertising and project development. When you’re at your most scrappy and enthusiastic negativity finds itself out of your way allowing you to open another opportunity. I know for me and my awkward life I have been down roads that I didn’t think would lead me to money or any type of success. As a creative I do what I’m passionate about and the little I need finds its way to me, the will be a time when I find myself in surplus! I feel it in my spirit and theres no way I won’t allow it to happen so I move towards it everyday – Because I need to – I have to – theres no way I cannot.

Creating opportunities is what I do best, I will always want to because it feels right find your own acres of diamonds where you sit right now its definitely there it just needs a little digging and refining. Opportunity waits for no man however when you’re feeling noble and honest within yourself True opportunity was always yours to begin with. It was just waiting for you to grab it.
