So I Know I Have Not Been On My Blog Flow For Awhile Now With School And Other Distractions. But Im Here To Update. Well My Manufacturers And I Are Still Not Seeing Eye To Eye On Everything But We Are Working Out The Differences So Hopefully My Tees Can Arrive By The Time The New Year Reaches. I Have Alot Of Ideas I Want To Work On In 2010 And I Want To Expand The Brand "inspiration" Not Only With T-Shirts But Cardigans, Sweaters Few Other Items. I Spoke With My Good Friend Delano( Some Of You All Know Him As @Tattoosbylano On Twitter) In The Barbershop Today And He Gave Me Some Motivation. Hes Doing Alot Of Major Moves And He And I Will Definitely Link Up When The Time Is Right. Another Shoutout Goes To The Ali Sisters In Australia And My Homie Miriam(OhemaaMimi On Twitter)They Continue To Support Me And They Also Are Included In Some Of The Ideas I Have For Promotion. We Hopefully Will Have A Full Fledged Website By March 2010 So We Are Working Over Here. Please Stay With Me People. I Need The Support And Love.
This Is One Of The Dopest Ideas I Have Seen In A Long Time. As Melanie Travels The World She Collaborates With Street Artists In Different Cities To Perform Songs From Her Album "The Bridge". Check Out Melanie In London Town.

Attention: Deficit Is Here, WALE Has Arrived. DMV, Africans, And Hip-Hop Lovers This Is A Proud Day So Let Us All Celebrate. Oh And Im Not Posting The Link Go Out And Actually BUY The Album Its Worth The Money. WALE!!!
Henry Fremin And I Are Sitting In The Room On A Tuesday Night Talking, Vibing and Making Plans To Take Over The World. Henry For The Past Few Days Has Had This Fascination With The Miley Cyrus Song "Party In The U.S.A." lol.Ok So I'm On Twitter When My Dude @Tattoosbylano Says Whats Good. He Tells Me How Hes Been Working With THE NEW BOYZ, YOUNG GUNZ, And Is About To Tour With CHRIS BROWN. Now Delano Has Been On His Tattoo Grind For A Good While Now And We Are Good Friends From High School. He Was One Of The First People I Told About inspiration and Believed In What I Wanted To Do. He Is A Person Who inspires Me Because He Is Younger Than Me By A Year Or 2 And Hes Making MAJOR Moves Without Letting Anyone Stop Him. Anyway Back To Henry And I. We Go From Talking To Sketching The Home Page Of The Website For inspiration. Just A Rough Draft Nothing Too Serious But You See We Are Working Over Here. Anyway Here A Few Pics Of Henry Sketching. We Also Set The Meeting Up For Development Of The Website For Saturday. WE ARE WORKING PEOPLE. BELIEVE THAT!!!
So The Day Your Mother Gave Birth To You Is One I Feel You Should Celebrate Each Year. My Birthday Was Oct. 21st And I Turned 20 Years Old. The Actual Day Was Very Laid Back I Was Just Glad To Be Able To See The Age Of 20 And Used It To Reflect On Things In My Life And Accept That I Need To Begin Working On My Future. Well I Had A Great Birthday And I Had A Very Special Person Make Me A Very Special Cake Which I Will Forever Remember. Well Here A Few Pics.
My Guy Jesh( jeshpeart.blogspot.com) And I Linked Up In The Summer And We Discussed Him Doing The Logo For inspiration. He Came Up With A Rough Sketch And It Was Cool But Hes Now Brought It To Life. I Like It, But I Do Feel That Maybe A Few Different Logos Could Work Also That Way I Would Be Able To Offer You All Different Looks. So This Is Phase 1 Of inspiration Logo. Dig? Dug? WE OUTCHEA!!!!
So As I Stated Previously, The Two Sample Shirts From China Arrived This Week. What I Did Was I Went Around Campus Approaching Random People And Asking There Honest Opinion Of How The T-Shirts Felt Material Wise And If They Also Felt It Was Good Quality. For The Most Part Everybody Was Happy With The Sample. The Only Discrepancies People Had Were That: The Arm Length For The MEN's Shirt Was TOO SHORT And The Length Of The Men's Shirt Need To Be A Little Longer Also. Later That Evening I Had My Friend Kaelin Try On The Woman's Sample Shirt. Kaelin Usually Wears A SMALL Sized Shirt And The Sample Is A Medium. I Had My Other Friend Whitney Try On The Old inspiration Shirt In Medium To See The Difference. Whitney Is Wearing A Medium Version Of The Old inspiration Tee. We Came To The Conclusion That The Sample Tee Is Much Better Than The Old But You All Can Judge Yourself.
So I Have Been Waiting On These Sample T-Shirts From China For A Good Minute Now And They Finally Arrived Today. In My Opinion The Quality Of The Materiel Is Excellent. My Roommate Also Said The Same Of The Materiel But I Will Get A Few More Opinions And See What People Say. The Arms Lengths On The Shirts Are Also Very Short And That Needs To Be Fixed ASAP. My Chinese Manufacturer Sent Me A Medium In Men's And Women And The Men's Medium Is More Like A SMALL So That ALSO Needs To Be Fixed. Continuous Set Backs But Perfection Takes Time As My Friend Elliot Tensley Reminded Me Last Night. Here A Few Pics The V-Necks Are For Girls And The Round For Men. Don't Hesitate To Leave Feedback Much Needed.
Hello World. Wow Haven't Blogged In A Long Time But I Have A Good Reason. This Thing They Call College. Keeping Me Busy And Slowing "inspiration" Down.

Just Bear With Me People I'm Only One Man But Believe Me This Is My Dream And I Will Continue To Work To Get To The Top I Just Need Everyone's Support. Like I Said In The Intro. Hello World.

Henry...This Is My Roommate At School This Year...Funny Lad This One...Hes Short And Everyone Seems To Like To Point That Fact Out Like He Doesn't Know That Already...Hes A Very Confident Person And We Get Along Like Sisco & Shwayze. Lol...Anyway Henry Helped Me Take The First Pics Of The Tees And He Also Bought 2 Or 3 Tees. Hes Real Supportive Of The Movement. Hes Probably The Coolest Person I Met From Kentucky Whole Time I Have Been There. I'm Sure This Year On And Off Campus We Will Get Into More Mischief Then Last Year.Lol..
My Guy Zach... We Been Friends Since High School and He Has Been Supporting The Movement Since Day One. When I First Started inspiration I Had 12 Shirts And I Had About 5 Colors. So When I First Posted The Pics Of My Shirts Up Zach Made Sure I Held One Purple Shirt For Him Since We Don't Go To The Same College. So When I Came Home From School I Sold Him That Purple One But I Found A Lime Green One And He Bought That Also. Yesterday Around 2am Zach Came Through At 2am And Copped The LAST Medium I Had. He Really Supporting The Movement For Real...Anyway I Should Have More Colors In The Next Few Weeks With NEW QUOTES. Im Making Progress I Just Need Everyone's Support.

So My Mum Has Gone To China This Week. She Should Be Back In A Week Or So. She Has Gone To Establish A Connect For Me And To Get Good Quality T-Shirts At A Cheaper Price. I Feel Like We May Be Onto Something And This Is The Next Phase Of The "inspiration" Movement. I Will Probably Also Look Into Producing Bumper Stickers To Go With Each Order of An "inspiration" Tee. Oh I Also Did My First Out Of State Transaction This Week. A Client In Vermont Ordered Two Female Shirts Through Money Gram Which I Have To Say Is Very Effective Process. So I Think I'm Doing Fairly Well. New Quotes Will Be Coming Soon Also. Remember "To Love And Be Loved Is To Feel The Sun From Both Sides-David Viscott"

So I Thought I Would Keep Everyone Updated On The Re-Occurring Problem I Seem To Be Facing. Everybody I Have Talked To Likes My T-Shirts. Thats A Given. Everybody Wants To See Me Succeed. A Few Haters But Not Too Many. Anyway The Problem Is That When I Talk To People Who I Think Are Website Savvy That Could Assist Me In Developing A Website They Are All Busy...I Guess I Can't Expect Everyone To Have Free Time But I Do Need Help So I Can Get This Off The Ground And Stop Selling Tees Out Of My House...smh...Hopefully I Can Have A Website Developed Before The End Of The Year That Seems Like A Reasonable & Realistic Goal.
