Q: What’s the most inspirational thing or experience you’ve ever encountered?

"The most inspirational experience I had was travelling by myself when I was 19 years old to an electronic music festival. Making new friends, experiencing new ways to think and live, listening and dancing to good music barefoot all day. After this voyage I was never the same person again and my true love for life and arts flourished. Just remembering it all puts a smile on my face." Buy this tee now!

“When I was very young, my mum wanted to show me how to draw the scenery in front of my home. After a lot of sweat and tears, I managed to draw several deformed triangles that kind of looked like mountains. I think this is the oldest memory I have that pushed me to develop my passion for drawing and creating.” Buy these tees now!

“The most inspirational thing that I’ve ever encountered was learning that my grandfather built his entire two-story house with his own two hands without help from anyone. He set out to do something and he just did it. He always taught me that if you work hard, you can accomplish anything. I’ve followed that ideology my entire life and it’s proven to be true. He also said, ‘If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself!’ This is why I have been and continue to be my own boss. It’s amazing how a little drive and determination can get you so far in life.” Buy this tee now!

“A book! Well, not a specific book. Any good book will do. I love the fat ones and the skinny ones, the ones bursting at the bindings with illustrations and the ones without any pictures at all. If humans have souls, you’ll find them in our books. What could be more inspiring?” Buy this tee now!

Blair: “Seeing Big Daddy Ed Roth drawing in one of my dad’s magazines, when I was about 7. From there it was no turning back on drawing.”

Rafael: "I can’t remember a specific time where I felt really inspired. There are so many… watching movies, listening to music, visiting art exhibitions, etc. Every moment can bring a situation where I feel inspired in different ways." Buy this tee now!
