T-Shirt by Designer Andrew Christian


Here is a T-shirt I have fallen in love with very quickly...

Seen in the picture above I am wearing a design by Andrew Christian who is a designer based in the USA and has had his clothing line since 2001. I have to say that the fit and comfort is perfectly in line with what I look for in a T-shirt.

This is a medium sized T-shirt which is not too tight around my waist, sometimes I prefer it this way, but it also depends on the material used. I also love my low V-necks, and as you can see this T-shirt is exactly that and the fit around the arms is nice and snug.

Andrew Christian is mainly known for his underwear and swimwear designs as well as regular lines which are more 'sporty'. He has also launched a line called 'Black by Andrew Christian' which includes button downs and vests.

And keeping in check with environmentalists he has also got two eco-friendly lines called 'Bamboo Fiber' and 'Organic Cotton' and for the peeps who are looking for butt-lifting underwear he has 'Flashback' and 'WonderWear' for men and women.

Check out some more of his designs which can be bought online:

It is a super New Year!



So this year I thought I would freshen up my blog and website, hope you guys like the new banner and theme, let me know what you think? I am still working on the website though with the help of a very good friend, Jeff, because I don’t know a thing about website design!

I have this feeling that this year is going to be a really good one, and I wish the same to all my readers!
This afternoon I shot for Castle light who is launching their new 12 pack beers in stores in the next few months, so keep an eye out in the bottle stores for my pics, hopefully you won’t be staring at the back of my head! Lol

I also have a few shoots lined up for this month with a couple of photographers who want to broaden their portfolios, something I am always keen on doing as it is when you can get the best shots as the creative juices just flow! One of the shoots will be recorded and will be posting it to youtube, so also keep an eye out for that!

There are two major projects that I will be working on this year, first of all I will be working on launching my non-profit initiative called Project Accept and the other will be revealed later on during the year, but what I can say is that it is going to be huge and you need to keep an eye on your television screens!
Furthermore I am aiming at getting distinctions in all my subjects at VEGA this year! And it is most definitely possible, just need to tweak my economics a bit! Lol

Anyways! Hope you are all having great starts to your new years and as said, I wish you all the best in what you guys set out to accomplish this year!

Bullies! Give it a break!


I am so sick and tired of bullies, and also the people who do not take a stand. I mean, this is something that goes on and on and on and on and in most cases people just turn a blind eye.

I have received countless emails over the years from individuals who have to deal with being bullied on a daily basis, some of these individuals threatening suicide.

People who have to deal with bullies all the time post videos on youtube; the emotional torment that these people go thru is indescribable.

As some of you might know from a couple of posts a few years back I was also subjected to the act of bullying, I used to get teased left, rite and centre, called a gay, homo and fag and bore the brunt of many jokes. Remember, I was that skinny little white boy with big batty ears that battled to fit in socially.

Bullies usually have a poor and unhealthy up bringing, they are usually neglected and not given enough love and support from their families. Bullies usually attack people on an emotional level because they lack self-respect, discipline and most likely see themselves in their ‘prey’.

If you are a bully, turn the tables… Imagine what it feels like being tripped or chanted at on a daily basis, imagine dreading going to any social event or even school and work every day, imagine being anxious around other people all the time! Imagine the feeling of your pride being ripped away at every opportunity that is at hand for a bully to get to you.

Not a cool thing to imagine? Rite? Then why do it to others?

If you are a parent of a bully… Imagine that it is your child being bullied, imagine that their voice is taken away on a daily basis, that they are forced to climb into an emotional dark hole that takes years and years of soul searching to get out of. Imagine that your child’s learning is stumped because of the abusive acts of another individual, another individual that really just needs to be taken in and given love.

Not a cool thing to imagine? Rite? Then why not do something about your bully child?

To the bullies, give it up! Socially you are not respected and usually you end up battling in life. Make peace with yourself, get over your issues, make peace with the ones you bully, I can assure you now that you will live a more happy and peaceful life.

To the ones who are bullied, remember that you are who you, you are the best and always put yourself first, no matter what! Don’t let the idiots get to you, might it be rumors or talking behind your back or being shunted from a social circle, you are better than that and you will end up tops!

Bullying is for losers!
