Hello everyone, 

Its been a while since I posted on the blog and apology for that. 
As you probably know at the beginning of this year I graduated form my MBA in England. It was a busy but wonderful year and a half.

After that I had several issues I have come across with including the search of a new job. The journey has not been easy and I have not been feeling too positive about it, one would think that getting more qualifications and experience would make it easier, however I have found it difficult. Quite a few rejections, and way more radio silence from companies, with only the tag of 'Overqualified' and 'needs a working visa'   hanging from over my head. Or so that if what I believe since no one is giving out any real feedback. I have been patient, considering my job search has now  lasted year, but I fear my energy is low.

And I know that one that has suffered a lot form it is my blog, and although I do still stand firm on its beginnings, but I don't have the energy to carry on this. I still love art, and enjoy traveling and visiting museums as well as learning about new artist.  I don't believe this is something that will stop. As creatives we know that we need to keep feeding our creativity.

All this rambling, and it probably doesn't make much sense, All to say that the blog will remain quiet for a while , once I feel that I am on my feet again I will take it up again, maybe not so focused on Art? I don't know  I am opened to changing the blog in the future  its something that  started 6 years ago and something dear to my heart.

So thanks for hanging around if you follow the blog, Fingers crossed, and I will be back in the near future with new energy and a new focus.

Take care all

New Zazzle shop

Hello everyone,

A little change to the normal Layout. 
Not to your right hand you can see the new DLA shop!!!

This little ( at the moment ) shop has all my own graphic designs. At the moment it has my collection of Forest friends, Fox, Raccoon and Weasel, in my try to make everyone a little more environmentally friendly.

 All with thinking green in mind you wont be able to use the design in every product Zazzle has, but only products that have been revised by me and that have certain links to sustainability.

All the current shirts available are all 100% organic and the totes available are 100% cotton
I am looking into other products to place the graphics on but the list is huge, so be patient.

So go ahead and take a look,

Winter Spirit 05...... WWII reminder and Berlin

During this trip we got to see alot of history and quite a few of its scars. Before we got to Berlin we did get to go to Auschwitz concentration camp. A real eye opener for those who quite don't know or understood the gravity of WWII. I saw that it had a great impact to those who where younger. I personal have read and have studies quite a bit of it so for me the hardest and most unpleasant part of the trip. I how ever do recommend going to really get a sense of how hard and horrible a world war can be. (I didn't take any picture I couldn't  do it).

But History is History and ignoring it or avoiding it is wrong.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" 
-George Santayana

Now on to a much better note.

Who hasn’t heard of Berlin before, especially with the great history of the Wall of Berlin after WWII.

But before we got into Berlin we had the opportunity to see the Soviet War Memorial. The scale of the memorial is astounding.( As well as really cold)

Once in Berlin we got to have a bus-tour, where we got to see the most important buildings and monuments in the city, such as the Reichstag Building which was originally Parliament’s building which went through a lot of damage in 1933 and was abandoned until its reconstruction in 1999 after the reunification of Berlin and became again the building of parliament.

And of course one of the most visited parts of the city is Charlie’s checkpoint, which is where the American pass was between East and West Berlin. Currently you can see a part of the wall as well as some remembrances about it. You can still see several parts of the wall around the city which I believe are kept as remembrance of the cold war.

And of course one of the most see points is the Brandenburg Gate which is said to be part of the inspiration of the arc d’ triumph in Paris. Because we where there right before new year you can see the structure behind the gate, I can imagine that this would be a great new year's reunion point because of its location.

Berlin is quite an interesting story, and for a city who was divided until 1989 its reconstruction has been admirable. The city is quite big as well, so I bough a day subway ticket, which I used to travel from one point of the city to another.  the Subway is easy to understand and at the time I used it it wasn't too crowded.

One more post and we are done with Winter Spirit trip!
