1. What one thing did you do better today?
I made two illustrations for Katarina, the amazing girl behind Wildthing Love Yoga, who then with the help of Pirate Piska printed them on organic and ethically made t-shirts using only sustainable energy. T-shirts are available in black color, one with this illustration combining the love for moon and plants and one with paws.
2. Has doing so made you or someone else feel better?
I was so happy to meet Katarina and work with her on this project. She suggested with each sold t-shirt we donate 5 eur to Moroccan Animal Aid and Ims’ One project to help support their NoMad dogs project in Morocco.
3. Has it brought any new realisations?
It feels good to do good and to give back in whatever way you find suitable. I know for myself when I find ways to do so with my work, I feel amazing. I have always done at least one project a year pro-bono, to help either a person or a new brand come to life. I believe the talents we have are not to be used just for personal satisfaction. Has it not been for my parents who fully supported me when I decided to go to study in the UK which was so much more expensive compared to studying in Slovenia, I would probably never be where I am today. Also to all people who have crossed my path and taught me great things, I am forever grateful. I believe once we come to a point where with the knowledge and skills we acquired along the way we can pay it forward, it is time to start giving back. It doesn’t have to be to the same people who helped us. It can be to someone else being in need or at greater use of your skills at that moment. It can be something small but still of great meaning, like to me creating these t-shirts feels.
