Art, process and design blog of an aspiring industrial designer.

“We’re all the same people we were when we were children.  We’re just bigger and we pretend that we’re not.”

I’ve always been a big fan of this etsy artist, and by now he’s done some fairly high-profile stuff, but he still keeps his sweetness, and honesty and vulnerability in all of his work.

This video for the Etsy Handmade Portrait series is just uplifting.

“A big part of my work is about seeing and appreciating the beauty in the everyday, to make people see how beautiful the world is and how beautiful their lives are.”

“My work is about being alive and its about being being human and about being a person.  And then of course this this other thing, and its Love.  Its a funny thing, there’s something about art that Love is almost a taboo subject – its almost to obvious to make work about. And to me its the most natural thing.  The need to love, to be loved, and the connections and the relationships.”
