Fabian Ciraolo...

This is the coolest form of fashion illustration I've seen in a LONG time!
I only wish i stumbled upon FABIAN CIRAOLO when i was still learning to do illustration.
 I never found a specific style that related to me but for some reason this particular style of illustration is strikingly mysterious. 

They evoke the curiosity in me...

What does each one mean? I have no clue...
How exactly has it been done? No clue...

What I DO know is that they are inspiring and make me incredibly happy. Illustration like this makes me incredibly excited for the future of fashion and art and what they do for each other.

Jules Julien...


The work of French illustrator, Jules Julien, is questions the reality of the world which surrounds us.  He puts in scene a world where the symbol blends with the anecdote and where the strange is concealed behind the images in his meticulously drawings.
An underground world where the super heroes would be called: Eros and Thanatos. Jules Julien started in 2006 a personal research through his drawings and designing.  Noticed by the press and different galleries, his work has been introduced in Europe, Japan, USA and Australia.


I realise this type of illustration is not everybody's cup of tea but it is just way to abstract and weird for me not to LOVE :)

I sound like a broken record..."I miss him"..."did i make a mistake"..."wish i knew if he still thought of me"!
It hurts so much when someone who at one point was your everything, is now gone. Love is one of the most complicated wonders of this world...
Im no expert on love but i do know matter how much it hurts sometimes, love is one of those things that i will believe in forever.
I strongly believe that the harder you fall and the more intense the pain, represents the intensity of the love that was shared...

If you allow it to be, love is the greatest healing force in the universe.

When most people end relationships they reject what they most
 love in order to avoid  facing what they most fear- themselves.

As they say, it is important to live in the present, not the past or future.
Yet, it is also important to understand the past- so you can avoid repeating the mistakes- even if those mistakes were an important part of your learning.
Healthy love must be nurturing. It is not only about what you are,who you are now- but what you may become. The potential of the human spirit for growth, love and awareness.

 It is an awareness  of your beloveds potential. I have seen relationshipswhere one or both people are choked - where their love has  become an antidote to the fear of being alone instead of a mysterious adventure. 

When we reject others- we reject a part of ourselves. 
When we seek happiness by rejecting love and losing our openness to others- we only delay the time that it takes to become fulfilled and truly happy.
Love is the unconditional support of someone’s soul.
 It is the unshakable desire to see them become what they were meant to be, yet accepting of who there are now. 
It is unmoving, and remains when all else is gone- whether that is youth, health, mind and even life.

I do know this...when i am luck enough to find that again i will be more in tune with who i am and what it is i want when it comes to this thing called LOVE...and so...I promise you this.
 Each day I will say I love you
- regardless of how sad, disappointed or angry  I become. Each day I will commit to you as if for the first time. An each day I will be thankful that you are with me. Each day I will remember how imperfect I am.

A relationship is not about you or me. It is about us.

Without the "us" there is no relationship.
To make one person the focus of one's love-may be the inspiration
 of many a love song- but in the end- that focus is narrow and selfish. If one loves, then one must love all consciousness- all life- and the full manifestation of this in oneself and others.
The essence of life and love is change.
My heart is open- but to be understood the other must be willing to receive-
to accept the offering.
Without commitment there is no possibility of change and growth,
 and without these things the relationship and the people in it will not heal and become healthy.
Often the ego's "self protectiveness" can be destructive-
 resulting in anger, threats and withdrawal. Yet sometimes there is a need to fight. A need to break the silence- to restore a balance- to unleash the truth.
To often people forget that life itself is a gift. 

True love is as constant as the North Star & as faithful as thesun that rises & sets every day. True love is unshakable. True love cannot willfully hurt

Running In Circles...

COLDPLAY was the most incredible concert! Not only did we have a lot of fun but it also seemed to be quite an emotional concert. 
Everywhere i looked people had tears in their eyes and looks of wonderment on their faces just trying to absorb the incredible energy and vibe surrounding us. 
One of the best nights of my life!

"The Scientist"

Come up to meet ya, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need ya
And tell you I set you apart
Tell me your secrets, and nurse me your questions
Oh lets go back to the start
Running in circles, coming in tails
Heads on a science apart 
Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start

I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart
And tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Oh it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I'm going back to the start

Ooooohhhhhhh [x4] 

"Fix You"

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down on your face
And I...

Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down on your face
And I...

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
