Take something that is urban and machine made, then, "...fertilize it, forcing it to flower by embroidering a glacier flower and moss on it."
Keep a slow pace, and stay focused. Zoom in on what you're doing, and let it happen.
This artwork is honestly so dope. I really like the idea behind it, and the edition of colors to the simple, urban logos. I think it all ties in very well to the modern idea of clothing, and it does not surprise me that he makes really good money off of it.
