This is my first blog, and I've never been crazy about posting up about what is going on in my life. But I always felt like I had a little "writer" in me. So here it goes....
Lots of Stuff Going On!!
Lots of cool news going on. The past month I got accepted to the Atlanta Greek Step Show & Picnic. Can't wait to see everyone next week Fri and Sat. I also got accepted to BAMAJAM in Enterprise, Alabama!! This is a concert fest with Tim McGraw, Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock and 40+ other artists. Wouldn't it be cool if Kid Rock saw my PiLLOOHS line and wanted to put his head on some??? What he needs to do is bring his EX Pamela Anderson because Pamela's PiLLOOHS would be nice to twitter about. This will be my biggest venue up to date. I'm not sure what to expect but it's going to be interesting. Can't believe I'm a part of this line up below.
Metallic Butterflies just got pressed!
So my "Metallic Butterflies" design just got pressed and was pretty excited to see all my hours on Illustrator payoff. I'm not that good of a designer but with the help of my girlfriend, she told me what girls like in the designs. So overall, I just did what she said and that's why it came out so good.
Craigslist and walking thru the mall
So I posted on craigslist I was wanting a promotions/events model for the Greek Fest and Bamajam. I was disappointed at some of the responses I got for the Greek Fest. Atlanta didn't represent the way I was hoping. Some of them didn't read what PiLLOOHS was all about and even a dude emailed me his tight abs portfolio. Made me think, I need to do some sit ups to compete with the dude. So I didn't find anyone, then my girlfriend suggested I goto Hooters and the malls. Me and her went to hooters one night to case the joint. There were some decent looking black girls. They had the look, but didn't have the full package with what I was looking for. So yesterday I went to the 2nd mall and finally saw someone who worked in one of the stores. I talked to her and she turned me down, but she said her co-worker is actually a Greek and familiar with the Greek Show next week!! I felt like it was meant to be. She accepted and Friday she will be helping me. Now I need a 2nd girl. I was strugglin for some reason with trying to think of a hot black girl that I personally knew. Then it hit me. I then texted someone who I use to work with. And she said yes too. So I have my events models set for the Greek Show.
My Bamajam Posting
My Bamajam posting on craigslist went very fast. This lady named Pam said she had someone for me. So we went back and forth with emails and I kept asking for a Portfolio of these chicks. After several emails, she never sent me any. So I started thinking, these girls are probably not that attractive and missin "teef". Right when i thought that, not too long after that she finally sent me pics. I was like OMG.... are you foe real? I replied immediately and had to get one of them. They were all attractive but this one seem to have a lil more swagger. She's going to be a great PiLLOOHS Girl.
Before the mall
It was pretty cool, someone from craigslist who saw my events model posting emailed me and said they wanted a few shirts. So she was cool enough to meet me in person and she bought some shirts from me. She was pretty Ambitious and lots of stuff going on in her life. Hope to see her soon....she said she wanted a PiLLOOHS Pizza shirt. Cuz we have the best pizza dough that is "firmly" rolled and kneaded.
Disappointment for the day
After meeting with that girl yesterday, I was suppose to pickup my tank tops designs. The guy said he is running behind and needs to push it out til monday. So that sucked. Oh well.
Summary & Facebook....
So I posted for events models on craigslist, I picked up my butterflies shirts, cased out some Hooters, walked around the malls, met a craigslist person to sell some shirts to and finally did the Facebook blasting to all my friends to "like" my site on friday. I guess everyone has been too busy or lazy to "like" my page cuz I only have a few people right now that has liked it. We'll see if my friends finally see the invite and take 5 seconds of their time to click a "thumbs up" picture.
