Such craftmanship & out of the box ideas.
Her works makes me to aspire to become a better artist …
To ignore limitations and bring a concept into reality …
And to create the best things I can.
Often, I worry too much about the wearability and the production cost of the item I design/create.
I also worry about the item’s possible shipping cost and whether I the item can be packed / shipped easily.
All these considerations tend to limit my creativity … and at the end of the day, I often realized that I did not give it my all … and that I did not bring my designs/ideals into reality, but just a blurry shadow of it. This realization – which I tend to push to the back of my mind – tend to nudge me with some pangs of dissatisfaction that sort of bothers me from time to time.
Angelica Brigade (AB) is a new and small independent company with no external financial backers or angel investors. In order to survive, and in order for that to happen, we need to make a reasonable amount of profit so we can get more materials to create more things and so on. I’m not saying that we’ve been a total sell-out. We aren’t creating anything that aren’t in line with our artistic ideals or tastes … we do … but, only in its lesser form.
So, does it mean that we’ll go crazy and create nothing but labor intensive, expensive to create, and fantastic yet unwearable pieces?
No … But from now on, at least 20% of the things I create will fall into that category.
Slowly, but surely, AB will try to grow into the kind of artistic brigade we aspire to become.
