Week 5 - Moving Along & AniMalogy

Hey all,

Another week in the books; so another blog post to go along with it!

Last week was better than other ones, I got myself more organized and rethought my approach to stuff. As a chronic overthinker, I go through heavy bouts where I am stuck in my head and it feels like no matter what I do I can’t do anything right. But more importantly, I always am quick to get myself back on track because nothing lasts forever, whether it be bad or good.

Had a little milestone last week as someone bought one of my Holiday Collection pieces. This was great because it marks the first EVER sale of my collaboration pieces. Up until now it has been clothing I had either printed myself or ordered from a local print shop (Shoutout Dunwell the printing GOATS). I started this brand to be positive, collaborative and exploratory and I am happy that things are starting to take shape the way I envisioned. Other than that, still writing my business plan and working on future collections.

Another big milestone happened last week, I received a press request from a well established publication in Detroit to showcase one of my upcoming spring accessory pieces! I can’t say who it is yet but I will say that it will be out in the wild come May, so keep your eyes peeled!

On the music front, I got to the studio last week and recorded another new song. I’m sitting on a good bit of music right now and I can’t wait to release it all once it’s finished. If you know me or have been following me for any length of time I’m sure you know that I am planning on heading to LA before the end of the year.

Before I leave, I want to leave a piece of myself behind in Michigan & the city of Detroit. If you’ve wondered why I’m in the studio so much lately; I’ve been working on an entirely collaborative mixtape titled “AniMalogy.” The tape will be 100% produced by myself, featuring artists I have had the honor of meeting since I started making music. So if you’re reading this and you want to be featured on a one of a kind project, just hit me up! As a suburban kid who didn’t know shit & still doesn’t know a lot of shit about the city; the Detroit scene welcomed me with open arms as I started my creative journey. I met so many talented people and as a producer it just made sense that I did something to leave my mark. Hate it or love it, I’m gonna do it.

This was kind of a long one, so if you read this far, thank you so much and just know that from the bottom of my heart I appreciate your support.

Until next week,

Ani
