EVER READY comes from my Family crest and embodies the idea of always being prepared for whatever shit sandwich life might give you.
Ever ready began with the realization I was slipping. I was growing complacent. I would have an internal struggle daily with the warrior inside my head who wanted to get after it and the lazy POS who wanted to binge-watch the office. The lazy POS was winning the fight.
This caused a growing feeling of regret and dread. I decided to get back on the ball. I had some free time and started grinding. I listened to the warrior in me and embraced the suck. Oh, how I had missed the pain cave. But that wasn’t enough. I wanted to grow mentally and physically. I was lacking a creative outlet.
Options for a new creative outlet were endless. But because I lacked the funds to start woodworking or making knives, I chose to draw. I haven’t ever been an artist and never really drew anything before but my brain was buzzing with ideas. The picture on this page is my first drawing and is a mantra that I have used to push through some grueling situations.
After sharing this picture and a few others with friends the request for sticker and shirts came in. So I figured why not use this opportunity to learn how to start my own business. At the end of the day, I have enjoyed making and producing the items for sale on the site. Any sales only allow me to create more things that hopefully you enjoy.
