if you don’t love what you do you are doing something wrong. the great part about art is that it’s almost impossible to become tired of it. the only way you could be exhausted of creating is if you’re making too many commitments. while being a creator it’s easy to wear yourself thin wanting to take on the world and share your brilliant idea with everyone.
we try to promote a healthy balance. take steps back and set aside time for yourself. adventure. explore. try a new flavor. ride your bike. take a different route.
the most important thing is to never give up. continue creating and pushing that boulder. you will be surprised where dedication brings you.
you could be facing the line that could bring your career to the next level. save your money though, because it all has a price.
meet Brandon. we just recently became connected through the arts. right now he’s working at Fry and Pie. he really appreciates artwork and has began collecting work of his favorite artists and also having a few of them tattooed on him. we’re very blessed to have made the cut. it means the most that you’re grabbing some illustrations and getting them applied to your flesh. that’s incredible to even think about still to this day. it’s almost unreal. without souls like you, we would not exist.
there’s so much to creating art. we imagine the level of skill and dedication helps confirm where you place your investments and collection. thanks for connecting. we cannot wait to build a lasting relationship as time goes on. let’s ride bikes together.
life can be really simple if you want it to be. we over complicate a lot of things by over thinking them to death. hopefully these next few words can serve as medicine for getting your thoughts on a different wavelength.
yesterday we gathered to spend time together as brothers playing Yu-Gi-Oh! the trading card game. we sat for almost two hours going back and forth taking turns vanquishing each others monsters, falling into snares, and casting our most powerful spells. we existed in our own world inside the game and out.
we are a family. we have been growing together for quite some time. being able to spend quality time like this together makes life all the sweeter. the quality of life you desire can be met with intention. you are where you want to be. sometimes we get caught up asking for more, when in reality we have just enough all the time. it’s healthy to improve your way of life. it’s even better when you have friends that have the same progressive mindset.
surround yourself with the people who inspire you to be successful.
we found splendor through walking a block from where we sat and played cards. that’s one of the many perks of living in New Orleans, you don’t have to look too far to spot beauty or some form of art. its exists all around us. all the time. every dynamic.
we turn every moment into opportunity.
the sunset matched our iconic evening together. brilliance and bliss. this is what it meant to simply exist. shortly after we paraded to the Healing Center where we awaited the Monday night poetry. it’s always such a pleasing environment at these poetry night gatherings. you are literally missing out if you’re neglecting that atmosphere.
greetings and hello. we started our day by sharing our morning with Sanath. we planned our rendezvous at the Louis Armstrong park for a few photos to showcase our latest addition of color with the FIG WEAVER design. together we enjoyed a cup of coffee talking about the upbringing of cvlt aesthetics and how this project began. Sanath is a brilliant soul. our journey began crossing paths briefly while we were set up selling art in our usual spot on Decatur street. he actually reminded us this was how we met. we reconnected via email when he was inquiring about artwork about a week or so ago.
this morning we discussed how terrifying it could be embarking on journeys we were unfamiliar with. usually it’s in the most uncomfortable situations we find bliss along with our initial reason for seeking this higher plane. we talked about how our paths in life often meet at repeating crossroads, and the ultimate challenge is to overcome the emotion that steers this vessel.
we went on about how some things are inevitable -but they are lessons and it’s our duty to grow from them.
Sanath introduced himself at our #ARTCVLT gathering last Wednesday to promptly obtain a tee shirt, meet the artists, and enjoy the show. thinking about his sincere support for our project makes us really warm inside. it returns that childlike essence of a school crush, because deep down- we’re in love with everyone who goes out of their way to support this vision.
together we make this a reality.
Sanath is a martial artist and software developer. we give you our blessings as you bestow them unto us. we hope the leap to come to New Orleans was the right one. so far you have been enjoying it, now that our paths have crossed we hope to see more of you.
thank you for your time.
if you are on our mailing list please check your mailbox for “firstname.lastname@example.org” or “cvlt aesthetics” and add us to your contacts. right now our emails are going to spam and it’s making it harder to communicate we feel.
we live to create.
the mint green color for FIG WEAVER is one of the exclusive selections. we have vintage black available to the public currently. contact us if you want to claim a limited edition tee.
we are falling apart and decomposing each and everyday. every day we make the choice to contribute to the world or take from it- for the world will tirelessly take from you. almost every second. as we create, we are destroyed. we highly advise to not look in this as becoming a fearmongering concept. sometimes we need to be reminded of our mortality in order to achieve a certain level of success. we are gifted each waking day to impact the world in some shape or form. it’s what you do with your time here that matters the most. this project is aimed to bring this mindset to light- there’s a certain level of destruction that is healthy, and there is a certain level of existential dread that can bring about the most dramatic changes in your life for the better.
you are responsible for how you choose to spend your time- we spend our time creating… each and every day. seriously- each day we are crafting at head quarters in our little art house in New Orleans, Louisiana. you can visit- or even send us mail. (address is listed in the footer of our news letter, contact us before coming over- it’s polite) if you are having trouble coping with a few harsh realities of life, feel free to message us or email to: email@example.com, we are very responsive to email and we are wanting to develop a true artistic family.
thank you for your time, below are a few selected photos from creators we have been developing a relationship through the #artcvlt tags on instagram, or photographers we personally picked.
this is our official warped tour photo post and our story of how our paths crossed. Garrett Russell of Silent Planet stumbled upon our set up outside the gates for their show in North Louisiana. he noticed that we had original drawings for sale. when he asked why- the reply was to afford entry into the show.
making art and selling it has been the means of survival since 2014. making and selling art is the blood of this project. it was this day in March our lives intertwined. the genuine appreciation for both of our gifts has created a lasting relationship filled with inspiration for over three years. the muses. our lonely start selling artwork on the streets has shaped the entirety of this project. the songs of Silent Planet have influenced a majority of the artwork created here. in reality it’s only natural.
today we celebrated friendship in the heart of Houston Texas. it was a family reunion, the gentlemen in Silent Planet are hard at work all the time. Mitch being the melodic guitar witch, Alex being the astonishing metronome, Thomas being the heart and Garrett becoming the voice. together they have been breaking the air and opening hearts of many with each and every performance. i often wonder how the dynamic of that band works. they seem to be very well pleased doing what they do. as they make art and inspired the world, we make art and inspire as well.
the best thing that anyone can ask for are a group of friends who are willing to listen to you no matter what level of success. the conscious audience that gravitates around Silent Planet is a loving family, something we desire to create in exact image as them.
the spirit exists in their fans. their reach is incredible-with their combined abilities they change the lives of every listener while providing powerful and potent messages laced within each song.
it was truly an excellent adventure around the lands of Houston, TX warped. here are a few photos that marked the day.
we are in love with our friends and family who directly support us. literally in love with you. thank you for noticing the artwork among the many things taking place this day. thank you for taking the time out of your day then to talk and become connected. if you are reading this now please email us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org –
late summer nights staying awake with your weekend warriors. we own the night. we own the world. and in this moment, we are infinite.
our hands held high with our voices chanting into the moon. howling as if we are forest spirits dancing about a fire. rituals. magic. music. spells.
early mornings greeting the sun happen more often now. time slips by faster these days. living life in a creative project brings out new strengths in us that we never imagined possible. the direction and passion towards this narrative is meant to inspire any and all who cross our paths. we are far more than just trying to sell you shirts. we are an art society. a gang of friends who passionately create.
inspired by the wanderlust of existence. inspired by the collective conscious. we live to create.
this project only exists because of the outside world. we just create art, get invited to social gatherings and meet like minded lovers who find solace in our design. an appreciation of the arts. we expound on the phenomena of interpreting the connection that happens when you feel compelled to bring our illustrations home with you.
for we are all connected.
we are all a family.
everything is as it should be.
