Artwork Collab: TashLeake X Jarid Andrew

Yayyyy so this is the start of something spectacular lol. Jarid and I did our first collaborative piece. It was very spur of the moment and we've been talking a lot recently about collaborating on a photography/fine arts piece. I had some art supplies in my room, so we just put our heads together and came up with this :) . Check the progression... LOVE IT! This might have to stay in my room lol

We started out with a blank canvas (18x24, I believe) and 4 pieces of foam.. 2 were taped together the long way.

Then we began to cut. I should have taken a pic of the make-shift exacto knife we made. It DEF did its job... even tho I got cut lol. This was fun because we pretty much free styled the whole thing. 

The next step was the paint job. The colors were carefully chosen because you have to have the right balance of emotion when choosing them. I started from one corner and Jarid started from the other... and we met in the middle. You can see how our two styles collided. 

After the paint dried, we assembled our foam pieces on top to create a bold contrast with the color. I think it came out so DOPE. Both of our foam cut outs were a result of creative expression and there's some meaning behind some of the shapes. There's even a couple subliminal formations there that may have to be pointed out if you don't catch them right away. We did this pretty quickly... I don't think I've ever done this before haha... I LOVE IT :) Can't wait to do some more!

For those of you who don't know Jarid Andrew, he's a VERY TALENTED photographer.. and just an all-around great person with crazy positive energy. Follow him: @JaridAndrew ... His portfolio site is launching soon, so look out for it.

[Random Useful Knowledge] "The most wasted of all days..."

Laughter is said to be the best medicine. I know I'm in a great mood, this morning, because of it. I blogged about how laughter in the past... maybe a few years ago, but I never really went in depth about the benefits. Here they are, to list a few: 

1. As a person laughs, a number of changes occur in the body. The muscles in the face and body stretch and the rate of heart beat rises. Laughter also causes a person to breathe faster, which in turn brings more oxygen to the tissues. Helping the body fight certain diseases, laughter reduces health problems connected with strokes, high blood pressure, ulcer, and arthritis. 

2.  15 minutes of laughter equals the benefit of 2 hours sleep.

3.  Laughter is good exercise. you can get the same benefits from laughing 100 times a day, as you can from 10 minutes of rowing.

4.  Laughter releases endorphins into the body with the same exhilarating effect as doing strenuous exercise.

5.  Stressed individuals have higher levels of a hormone called cortical. Studies show that laughter lowers cortical levels in the body, which makes laughter a natural stress buster. Much of the stress we experience is related to how we think. Laughing after an embarrassing mistake you made, for example, is far less stressful than losing sleep or remaining stressed over it.

6.  Laughter increases energy levels. Feeling tired or run down? Have a good laugh. Laughter is a natural pick-me-up, which may provide the energy and time needed to do things that might otherwise be avoided. 

If anyone has any funny videos they want to share, I'm down to watch... this is the funniest one I've seen in a minute so I thought I'd share (even though I saw it a while ago... thanks Blogzworth) lol
