If its not fun, why do it?

The goal in life is to balance out the good and bad days. Why spend time doing something you dont want to do if it doesn't make you happy? Of course there are logical explanations as to why we do things that dont make us happy, but is it worth it?

For some its hope of a better future, a life of happiness all the time. But what price are you willing to pay to enjoy life? Of course we want to create more good days than bad, but in some situations this isnt always the case. Life happens and unexpected circumstances may bubble up and take a turn for the worst, but in that moment of darkness, light is right around the corner waiting for you to come through. Dont hope for happiness, just be happy! 

 

TGIF

Beats are flying left and right. With Drakes latest album dropped out of nowhere, the SRP crew is feeling inspired and ready for more. If you and your friends haven't already listened to "Gone with the Rising Sun", take a listen right HERE. Stay tuned for more hotness :o), but for now, here is a daily dose of inspiration by The Classy Issue. We just can't get enough of it. tumblr_nk74l3TREA1rx9tato1_500 tumblr_nk9tfnoRlF1qa3sufo1_500 tumblr_nk9mbvNgkI1rd1tu1o1_500 tumblr_nk0jat51MJ1sfgfh0o1_500 tumblr_njvv3eso281tlvyjjo1_500 tumblr_n57q6qEwA21r4xe0so1_500 tumblr_n8ty7ho4vl1qdydnyo1_500 tumblr_n7jhuvTkkf1qg0h2uo1_500 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA tumblr_mgzmkiG0oU1qh5n07o1_500 tumblr_m9gfmiJFem1qcu8tmo1_500

What Are You Chasing?

Climbing to the top

0da682547a0e3a5c6741b0bb75b18e29 While trying to stay out of the winter cold, we had the great fortune of meeting Yulia, founder of ArtCase Production, to learn a little more about their exclusive hand painted prints, the persona behind ArtCase, and what the future might look like.

With a love for freedom, adventures and, believe it or not: mountains, Yulia started up ArtCase years ago, without any scholarly or professionally trained background. The mission has always been to get as close as possible to the customers' dream t-shirt or sweatshirt. ArtCase represents all that is unique, free and original, and Yulia proudly speaks of the limitless:

Imagination and creativity are endless, so I will say that our goal is to go into your head, understand what you want and make it look greater than you can imagine.

A lot of the inspiration comes from the hip-hop culture, graffiti and street art, but Yulia also finds here artistic vision being influenced by nature. She explains that sometimes all you need is a breath of nature, to escape the city, and the inspiration comes flowing by itself. Although, for Yulia, there is no greater source of motivation than people, people falling in love with the art that she creates, happy people.

My favourite part is when you are concentrated on the idea, brush, paints and material at the same time, seems like nothing exist, just this moment and you are so much into it. And I love to find a color solution for the work, gradients, shadows etc. And the best feeling is when customers are happy with their clothes of course.

We have all been very curious to hear in what direction ArtCase will go next. Although they already are shipping their production worldwide, and currently working mostly online and through their social networks, they are looking to move in the direction of selling in stores in Paris as well, to find new and exciting customers.

Here is a sneak peek of some of ArtCase's pieces from their latest winter collection. Which one is your favourite?
