the most amazing canvas you have is your life &
it should be your greatest masterpiece.
the box is stupid & unimaginative.
don’t live in it.

the magic is in the making.

live work create by samantha margalit

The magic is the process of creation. We may live and we may work, but oftentimes, even as creators we forget to create. To produce. To finish our starts.

Here’s a little reminder for all of us.

If you read this and think, “Oh, well, I’m not an artist. This doesn’t apply to me.” It does.

Yesterday’s #notetoself: your life is your message and you are your masterpiece.

but that it is too low and we reach it.”

Ambition Over Adversity

Take one’s adversity
Learn from their misfortune
Learn from their pain
Believe in something
Believe in yourself
Turn adversity into ambition
Now blossom into wealth

What’s ridiculously popular yet under-respected at the same time?

Comics.

Reading them will give you a brand new appreciation for illustrators. I can draw basic shapes…expecting anything outside of that is probably going too far. Still, I’ve always wanted to be able to draw well. See…anybody who can hold a pencil can draw, but to do it well is an entirely different story.

One who does it very well is none other than freelance artist Ron Ackins, whose work has been featured in Kicks and XXL magazines, as well as on Nike (soon!) and UndrCrwn tees. Chances are if it was a UndrCrwn shirt you really liked, he did it.

For more of his work and contact information, visit Behance.net/RonAckins. Good…I’m inspired. Not to draw, but to do what I’m good at.
