L.A. Fashion District

If you are a creative person and like creating your own clothes, costumes, or designs, well here’s a website that talks about the fabric or garment district in downtown Los Angeles, if you have been to a local fabric store some of the fabric can cost as much as 12 dollars per foot for some high quality fabric. The same high quality fabric can be found in downtown los angeles for half that price. Just saying. So if you plan on making a series of costumes or just playing around with fabrics, this is a good place to go. Did you know that the same fabric that is in 100 to 200 dollar jeans you can buy the same fabric yourself and make your own clothes? Yes, I know. So once you get the fabric you just need a brand name, and put on some fashion shows to attract buyers from small and large retail companies. If that doesn’t work do word of mouth and get your clothes on people who are icons in their industry or athletes or actors or actresses. The possibilities are limitless. Well enjoy, what does this have to do with Creative Arts? Everything. In time everything. James Creative Arts And Entertainment Company. out.

Daily Life Motivation

 

So here we go again. I found this video online I thought it was really good in regards to change and handling difficulty, and passion. Many times when trying to do something or figure a plan of action out we take the well traveled path. But this isn’t always the way, sometimes you have to forge your own path. So enjoy.

Set Design on a Budget by James Creative Arts & Entertainment Company

So I was online checking out set design because I am creating backgrounds and set ideas in my head for the short films that the company has decided to produce.

If your building sets or just starting out it guides you in the right direction. Well have fun. Enjoy the process, and never stop creating. James Creative Arts & Entertainment Company out.

Creativity and Exercise by James Creative Arts & Entertainment Company

Creative Ideas are with you always. So I went for a walk today to get rid of some frustration that I was feeling regarding things occurring that are out of hands. I decided that I was going to climb this hill. I had drunk some water earlier and I was relaxing but getting ready to do the deed. Lol. Fontana Hills Sky

The link above will take you to the picture. Let me see if I can figure out how to insert it here.

So as you can see. Ah, destiny to climb the mountain. Right. Well that’s what I thought to myself. It was so hard. There is a path that goes around the mountain but I didn’t start there. I started at the bottom of the face of the mountain. It was such good exercise but man it hurt. I had to stop at least 7 to 9 times, maybe even 10. It was a lot of rest because at some points there were only rocks and you had to low crawl to make it up some of the ridges. but it was good. As you get to the top there are rocks that are painted with various figures like star wars, alice in wonderland, and various other cartoons, lol. Here is one.

Whoever created this did an Awesome job and really took there time. But the paintings acted like land marks cuz like I said there is like 4 or 5 false/fake ridges before you reach the pinnacle of the mountain. One thing that was really weird/cool was at certain points on some ridges you could hear complete silence/stillness. It was so quiet I could hear my heartbeat. Yes, that quiet. So the experience was pretty cool in and of itself. I really liked it. And last but not least the grand finale. The top. Here are some pictures from the top.

As I walked and continued to walk it dawned on me(as it always does during exercise) no one was with me. I was all alone. It was scary but thrilling at the same time, but more scary. I have heard countless stories of people getting bit by snakes and mountain lion scares but another part of me wanted to climb the mountain in spite of all those obstacles or perceived difficulties. What I realize a lot of time is fear or the things that are stopping us are in our head. But my persistent effort in spite of the fear, little step, by little step, We get there. Not as fast as some others or as fast as we would like but we get there. Another thing in todays age of hyper connectivity if a lot of people aren’t cheering you on or championing your idea then your a loser/nobody. But I realized that’s not true. Who makes the determination what is great to a person’s sense of accomplishment and what is not. A five year old learning how to ride a bike doesn’t compare themselves to a tour de france racer. IF they were they would never get on the bike because that’s extremely self destructive. So where does creativity come from? anywhere. But when you creating or trying things out if you only have an audience of 10 or 12. Be grateful for even that. Which is also my way of saying Thank You to anyone and everyone who follows me and likes my instagram pics as I take this journey and reads this blog from time to time. Climbing the hill reminded me that the route to your goal is long and laborious, but with determination and will power you can get there.

Created Another Logo for a Local Business in Moreno Valley, Ca.

James Creative Arts & Entertainment Company created another logo/header for a local business here in Moreno Valley, Ca called Hudena James Inc. The first logo was kind of not want the owner wanted. After a few tweeks to the page you could clearly understand what the business stood for and was capable of doing for you. The business happens to be a paralegal business that helps people with forms needed for various situations that may arise. As a Creative Arts Company it was good getting to venture into a different field other than something that is more easily recognized as dealing with creativity such as drawing, art, or music, or anything along those lines. Here is a link to the picture posted on instagram James Creative Arts & Entertainment Company One thing that I realized while playing on the project is that not much is done without failure first happening first. But as you stumble and keep on going you get better and better. So once again thanks for stopping by, James Creative Arts & Entertainment Company, have a wonderful day.
