Creative Income Streams – Online T-Shirt Store

As an artist, I have a lot of drawings and sketches laying around not going to much use. I’ve decided to put a few of those designs on clothing, canvas prints, posters, and other products, such as coffee mugs, key rings, and postcards. The art products are branded under the name Technick Designs, products for a creative lifestyle.

I have a few other ventures happening right now, such as my creative startup company, so I wanted to ask a few friends for help. We are going to compile our designs and divvy up the profits.

One of my partners, Joshua Sanchez, helped with the graphic design for the header image on Google+, Facebook, and Zazzle Store Front. Check out his design portfolio on Cargo Collective and the Visual Vantage website to see other work that he’s done.

Calming Your Creative Space with a Meditation Art Sculpture

I’ve been meditating for years now and along the way I have developed a skill for creating harmonious meditation sculptures. These sculptures carve out a relaxing space for meditation in a living room, bedroom, or study. Meditation sculptures are arrangements of  buddha statues, crystal spheres, polished stone, candles, artwork, and other items. There are guides to Feng Shui, but the type of sculptural artwork described here is personal and subjective because it is meant to aid in meditation, relaxation, and calm reflection. Although each sculpture will be uniquely manifested by the creator, I’ll describe the method and thought processes I go through to create my meditation sculptures to help give you some ideas about your own!
