Ok then, this will be my last blog for two months or so. Just getting myself refocusing on the blog and reflecting on a solid direction with this. Also few changes coming in my life. It seems like September to October will be busy. If miss my blog or you want to keep up, follow me on twitter! So cheers for now!
On Monday 13th of August, I had an opportunity to exhibit my artwork submission for Common Ground Church’s People Can Change Exhibit in line with the church’s series. It was a small occasion but a major inspiring evening to be involved. Getting to meet various creatives and comments from the people was a blessing. On the video below, have a look out for other creatives, also I am on it, describing for our artworks.
This exhibition is travelling on Sundays in various Common Ground Church‘s sites. Artworks on display before and after the meetings on the following Sundays: 26 August in Rondebosch AM & PM, 2 September in South AM & PM, 9 September in the InnerCity and 16 September in Wynberg.
My Submission: Step into the Light
Medium: Digital Mixed Media (Printed on Canvas)
Description: The step from the darkness to the light doorway is representation of a start to a change in the presence of God. Romans 12:2 (NLT) is the best description for the person stepping towards the light, ‘Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.’
Ok I’ve been absent for a while and it’s my 60th post. It’s been grilled at work at moment and weekends are resting time. Thus lack of my showcases lately but excited with my piece on the exhibition for Common Ground Church‘s People can Change series. I will upload this work soon. In a meanwhile, enjoy these inspirations!
In 2005, I initial designed Vukukhaye’s corporate identity. Vukukhaye is an isiZulu word meaning “arise and shine.” There are a public benefit organisation with a vision for upliftment specifically children. I was approached to work on their Vukukhanye Educare Centre’s logo. A center focusing on quality preschool education to children. For more information or donating, please click here.
My Coat-of-Arms is actually an updated version to my original artwork I did few years back. I felt the original coat of arms needed to be a fresh, clean and solid line work. The Don’t Panic Coat of Arms Submission came at the right time.
So here is the overview meaning of the my Coat-of-Arms. The Zulu shield and fighting clubs represent the strength and history of the my Zulu culture, also a representation standing up to obstacles. The crown and cross on top of the shield, are the wisdom and faith that kept me grounded or turn too through hard times. I’ve always liked the wing shapes, shown of the side of the shield. To me this shape represent a journey or travelling, adapting and growth. All this things incorporate within my own life. My motto in my life is ‘Faith, Love & Hope,’ which I try to live by them.
So please vote for my Coat-of-Arms design here. I would like to thank Robyn (Vote her Coat-of-Arms too) for pushing for my submission. Lastly thank, Kers and Carl, who have been great inspiration and awesome true friends.
