Since moving to Brooklyn, it’s been difficult to find a routine with a very busy and chaotic schedule-balancing Natty Paint and a part-time MBA all while in a new city with so many exciting things going on. Two things that were constants in my life in Baltimore while Natty Paint was starting up were my diet and exercise:being vegan and Bikram Yoga.
I’ve decided after much deliberation, I don’t want to be vegan anymore. I like having many more food options available and miss things like eggs and greek yogurt. And now I can eat other things! Like goat cheese! The list keeps going… But milk will not happen, EVER. I hate milk.
I have also decided it’s time to pick up Bikram again, as it is the ultimate way to destress, relax, and clear my head. Today was my first day returning to practice Bikram Yoga. Luckily, there’s a studio super close by in Williamsburg! YES!
After getting back from class, I see I’m tagged in new pic on Facebook of a Bikram yoga instructor wearing a Natty Paint custom Bikram Yoga Hampden shirt, standing next to Bikram Choudhury himself! EPIC!
We’re going to work on getting Bikram his very own shirt to wear at teacher training. Bengal tiger strength, bulldog determination!

There are a lot of commissions in the works right now. The first is a design for the Bikram Yoga Studio in Hampden, for their 30 and 60 days challenge. Bikram himself says 30 days of Bikram Yoga brings you a new body, new mind, and new life. I am partaking in the 30 day challenge myself. Today is day 8 for me. Here are some pics of the BYH shirt design:
I’m meeting with Sarah, the owner of BYH today to discuss shirt colors so printing can get underway.
Another commission I am working on is a design for Greater Homewood Community Corporation. This year marks the organization’s 40th birthday, and what a better way to celebrate than with t-shirts! I was invited to attend the GHCC’s 40th Birthday Celebration at the North Avenue Market Saturday night for inspiration, which featured stilt walkers, knomes, performances by Single Carrot Theatre, and fabulous cupcakes. I am working on the design for GHCC this week.
