1. What one thing did you do better today?
The small, better act of today was actually an accumulation of a series of events that happened over the course of the past ten months. Let me start with today. A stationery collection I designed, illustrated and art directed for Lepa Afna has been launched. A beautiful, private event was held at Lolita to present the collection to press and influencers. I felt so honoured to be there, to see the results of my work and on the funny side, to literally eat my illustration for the first time (it was printed on a macaroon).
2. Has doing so made you or someone else feel better?
So many people that gathered today and hopefully many many more that will get to buy the collection we wholeheartedly worked on and really took care of every little detail.
3. Has it brought any new realisations?
It was overwhelming, to see this forever inspiring proof of what a great team can achieve. After the introductory talk, I talked to Lea’s mom and when she mentioned Lea has always had this performance side to her, I remembered it was Lea whom I asked to be the speaker at my first solo exhibition about four years ago and it was her that hosted the launch event when my book was published in 2017. Why? Because I knew and I still know, she was the best fit for it. Not due to her followers or her recognition but due to her beautiful character, openness to people and their stories. It brought tears to my eyes, realising I have the opportunity to work with and for such people I not only get to call my clients and co-workers but friends. Lea, from the bottom of my heart goes the most sincere thank you for your trust and the opportunity to create things I am proud of. It makes my heart sing watching you grow and fills it with excitement only imagining what great stories future may still have in store for us.
