WARNING: SLIGHTLY LONG POST AHEAD ⚠️ {No I haven't been hacked. I talk a lot. Like a whole lot, normally. I just spare you most of the time 😂} ________________________________________________________ About two weeks ago, I was lucky to work with two amazing creatives. @joshsisly – We had been planning to work together for a LONG time. I was very hesitant, I must confess. Because I'm a VERY picky individual. Picky about where, how and whom i give my time and self to. Picky about what I associate my brand with. Also, time was never our friend, anytime I was home. Eventually everything aligned and we made what I think is my best work thus far! Josh. You are incredibly talented! I'm still marveled at what u've taught urself and ur undying will to always listen and learn. Cheers to the beginning of this union and all the magic that's coming of it. Congratulations. You've earned a new fan. 🙋🏽 @woena_mua Woena!! I had caught a little of your work here and there and I admired your work and talent, prior to us meeting. I learned you were on this project the night before and I knew immediately that my sensitive face was gonna be in good hands. You showed up and showed out! Never been happier about the results of a collaboration. Look at what that hands do!! 👏🏽🙌🏽
