Self Portrait

As fashion week approaches, I feel a bit all-over the place and it’s almost as though I have to work harder to carry the pieces around. Hence this self-portrait I made today, first by doing the hand-drawn sketch, then editing and coloring it up in Photoshop.

Here’s version 2, a bit more violent, but as a co-worker told me, “you don’t need to go there, version1 is cool enough by itself.” What do you think?

      Thanks so much for your opinion! I feek ok, I tend to thrive under pressure. Just feeling scattered, like my attention has to be divided in too many places. Working on correcting this by ultimately achieving my dream- to run Undecillion full time! But it takes many years to build a brand, I think, and quite a lot of investment. Thanks so much for your concern!

        You’re welcome. Try to work with different todo lists and switch the context not more than every half hour. Multi tasking is brain f*ck and makes you unhappy and exhausted. By the way, have you read Loyalty 3.0 by Rajat Paharia? I’ve shared some of his insights on . You might find it helpful to build up your brand πŸ™‚
        Wish you success and if I can do anything for you or if you have any questions/things you want feedback on, feel free to contact me.
        Have a great day,

        Thank for the book recommendation! I will definitely purchase this on Amazon! I have quite the book collection now on how to start a corporation, how to sell your line to stores, books about branding… this will be a nice addition! Now if only I could find the time to read them all! Ha! It will make for great train reading! Thank you for caring about others, it’s a quality that’s rare, but the more we do it, the more contagious it becomes πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        You’re welcome πŸ™‚ Yes, my reading queue is quite crowded, too but some train reading will do, too I hope. And next week, I should find some holiday time to spend on reading πŸ˜‰
        Yesterday, I was at the summer party of the company I work for (which celebrated its 40th anniversary) and its founder, GΓΆtz Werner ( told us that we should see everyone as a customer and if we couldn’t satisfy our internal customers (co-workers) how could we ever satisfy an external customer (“real customer” who buys something). Lucky me we manage quite well πŸ˜‰ And he also told us that only if we invested ourselves into the company, we would make a change and use our lifetime (he has a quite similar view like me and says that it doesn’t matter if it is spare time or work time because it’s life time you should spend in a great and useful way) the right way for us. Very inspiring!
        Have a great day,

        GΓΆtz Werner is a wise, wise man! That’s exactly how I live! Extracting the meaning and usefulness from every moment! Making it count! How exciting! Life is always exciting when you live this way! Cheers!
