This past weekend, I met up with a colleague (my photographer) and one of my close martial arts friend whose modeling on a photoshoot for my upcoming t-shirt label, Xiaolin Lotus. I don’t want to give out too much information (Instead, there will be more material at the end); however, I must say it was a great success! All events does not go according to plan. One of the models was not able to show up. Besides on certain circumstances, I was not happy how unprofessional it was. Needless to say, it was a blessing in disguise because the shoot was in and out! Afterwards it was great to catch up with them and express my gratitude for helping out of the two things I am passionate about, martial arts and fashion!
I seriously love working with Renesha (the photographer). She is probably one of the most humble and open-minded people I have ever met. This is perhaps our 4th projekt together. Our artistic chemistry is always head on. It’s almost like finishing someone’s sentence. Challenging ones creativity in friendly competitive way. Her artistic ability is increasing at a progressive pace. Can’t wait to show everyone what is next!
Fridays are always good for a reason. Not only its the start of the weekend,but liberation from the 9 to 5 world. It’s refreshing to release your mind from your regular day-to-day life of working for the man. in 2013, I am seeking to make a change about that! seeing art is where the inspiration begins. The art event at the land of tomorrow was where me and couple members of Projekt: F.O.N. The hipster spot when you got the chance rock on to eclectic music and gaze through visual pieces. It was like Utopia.
Since I was going to an art gallery with some colleagues, I would have thought it would be great to given a classic look. I wanted to accent my black and white ensemble with my clear glasses (an homage to Andy Warhol). Something which gave an understated, yet artistic appeal.

Me, William Mitchell aka “Iron WIll” – Creative Director/fashion stylist/founder of Projekt; F.O.N
I have been going through a slight hiatus regards to the blogging. Needless to say, I miss sharing information to my viewers that express my aesthetics about life. However, I have been occupied getting my stuff together regards to a movement. A movement which is very needed in the Louisville area and eventually American pop culture. This movement is called, “Projekt:F.O.N” .
We are a group of stupid dope individuals who came together on some captain planet shit to save the world! Using our creativity and resources to build our passions into prespective careers is our goal. We tend to use it not only to honestly express ourselves, but also to inspire others to do the same! This is something which has never been done in Louisville. Meeting of the minds is extremely scarce in this city; everyone is out for themselves. Fortunately, I have been blessed with a group of people who understands me as much as I understand them. They are all great. We laugh, joke, and argue. We are a creative family. What we do is our life.. we are going to change alot of things…. This photo shoot is only a prelude… stay tuned!
The amazing photographers, Sowande and Reneasha behind the scenes of the shoot
