Day 388 | 50 Shades of Awesome

Our graffiti guru Patrick Camino has done it again. He did 3 amazing pieces to finish off our workspace, and there’s a story behind them all….

Kanye West. Hate him or Love him, there’s no arguing that he’s different. And different is important. I have a theory that the famous Taylor Swift speech interruption was a deadset strategic plan to make himself stupidly infamous. To me, he has glimpses of genius in always finding a way to be the topic of discussion.

Gary Vaynerchuk. If you haven’t heard of Gary Vee then jump into his social media. Amazing story of an immigrant that came from very little, and made it big with just supreme effort and crazy dedication.

And then there’s Conor McGregor. He’s one of the biggest names going around right now and I’ve been on the ‘Notorious’ train for a few years. In mixed martial arts he’s a genuine superstar, a loud-mouthed Irishman that has figured out the formula to make himself one of the most in-demand athletes on the planet.

The common link is that these people are unique. They stand out in a world where there’s thousands (and sometimes millions) trying to get our attention. That should always be the goal, to just be you at every turn and embrace what makes you different.

Do me a massive favour. Follow @50shadesofchrome to see all the amazing stuff that Pat’s putting out. He does custom art, feature works and one-off masterpieces. You should get one! Not only is his work phenomenal, but he’s a bloody brilliant human too.
