As we're standing on the threshold, about to enter a year of new beginnings... I find myself reflecting upon 2018.
Wow! What an incredible year it's been! There have been so many highlights! Especially since attending Awaken London - A Spiritual Awakening event in March this year. This was to be the catalyst for the avalanche of shifts that have been gaining momentum since then. It may not seem so from the outside, but my inner landscape is barely recognisable when I think back to who I was when this year began. Today, I caught myself wondering if I could pick a single moment that defines my journey for this year. Surprisingly... it wasn't hard! Even though there were so many special moments and things I've been so very proud of.
In March this year, I was approached by Lalantia to create her logo for her. We had just been through an amazing experience together in London, and I was absolutely delighted to be working with her. I get to work with DRAGONS! Lalantia is a Psychic Realm Channeler who works with all sorts of magical beings, so I was in my Element (pun intended!). I love doing my work, but when the subject matter is something I'm aligned with, it takes my energy to a whole new level. You can TELL when DeeVA has had fun creating something. This is why I've directed my business towards the Spiritual realms, because that's where DeeVA's energy goes into overdrive, and my imagination comes out to play. My point is... I was excited.
The way I work, is that I first let the energy of what is needed to sink in, and - for lack of a better word - percolate. I am not the traditional artist where I sketch things on paper... probably because I've not had the confidence to... but anyway, I BUILD them in my mind. As things take shape and I can see it clearly, I then start to transfer it into the real world. So, as all the others, the logo began to take shape. Then, it sunk in... Uh oh. HOW am I going to portray what I see in my head?! A common occurrence - I promise you! It's all fine and dandy when you have the image in your mind. It's another matter entirely when you have to get it down 'on paper'.
I remember the day clearly. It was time... It was ready to come into being. I had been putting it off, because I was afraid of not being able to create the Dragon. He kept nudging me, until I couldn't ignore it any longer. I believe in divine timing by the way... and that day - I had the full moon on my side. Even delays happen for a reason! Anyway. I had no idea how I was going to do this. I even contemplated patching a dragon together (shudder). I had no confidence at all! Then... somehow, I found myself with a pencil in hand. JUST DRAW it! By using some anatomy references found online, I just started, and an hour later I had my sketch. Jubilation coursed through me. I did it!! And that was the moment that I treasure the most over the whole year. Because that push, was all I needed, and 8 hours later, I was looking at the final result. This logo, nay, this piece of ART, is something that I will always be proud of and it will forever be one of the major milestones in my life, no matter what anyone else thinks. I know there will be more moments like these, but this has set the precedent for future growth, which is far more valuable that the logo itself.
So here I present... MY highlight for 2018
*Note: with DeeVA - I don't sugarcoat things. I am not this perfect machine that churns out logos. The reason I started out on my own, was precisely so that I didn't have to. I create, I don't 'produce'! And as with all things, there is an ebb and a flow. And I don't pretend that it's any other way. And I don't hide who I am either x I couldn't even if I tried... I'm an open book lol!
Magical Blessings for the New Year!
