Update Regarding The Wearable Art Project + Your Opinion

Two weeks have now gone by and we are in the final days of the Wearable Art of a Forgotten Species Project. I just wanted to let you all know how much I appreciate all of your support. This Kickstarter Project can not be accomplished on it’s own. So it’s kind supporters like each of you who keep this project moving forward. With less than 12 days left, this project has been an absolute pleasure to include you all in on.

The Launch Party was an absolute success! Thanks go to all of you who were able to attend (or who were there in spirit as well). The models looked so good and it was a pleasure seeing everyone try on the different fabrics.  You guys looked amazing!

I wanted to show you a few photos from our show last week which have prompted some of these hand painted scarves up close. Each painting is framed and created individually by the 4Bearance team, so every one is unique and one of a kind. They have been cast from antique frames dated some 80-130 years back. If one of these paintings catch your attention shoot me a link and lets see if we can work out a special offer. Thanks for your time today. I’m truly grateful for all of your support. I hope to have one of these lovely heirlooms wrapped softly around your neck soon. Until then, Resist + Remember.

I also wanted to hear your feedback on what areas you feel the Project could be improved. For instance, do you feel that I should include another garment i.e. t-shirts?  I look forward to hearing back from you.

Best,

Leah

In the Lab. Thanks for Your Inquiries

Some people have been asking what I’ve been doing since the last Ishan post. Just to let you know, I’ve been busily working on putting together a show and some exciting projects I’ll be letting you know about soon. In the meantime, thank you for all of the inquiries and support. Resist & Remember.

HARVEST

Violet sensed them coming as they lurked through the dense woods. Her tiny larvae formed a unique pattern above her which channeled their energies. Violet and the Imposters had already caused terror to a surrounding town. Confusion, more lost memories, and uncertainty abounded. She would make sure Chûndra’s plans would be fully carried out. Enough lives seemed to have been taken. Yet, with the 4bearance approaching, they’d make tonight an exception. She crouches forward to once again gather the energy from her parasitic progeny, but something different was amidst.

Meanwhile, across from the palace, The 4bearance began to arrange the 4 elements. First, Rïden’s arms formed the bridge which traveled over the murky waters Violet poisoned. Koyu’s tree bark ignited a magnetic discharge which awakened the atrophied brain synapses of the Triton soldiers . One by one their minds expanded, and an awareness of their surroundings became a reality.

Netra carefully carried the 2nd element in her arms. As she gave a small charge to Chaen’s heart, it began pulsating and dispersing a fragrance which awakened the masses. Now, fully discharged and combined with the other 3, the potential of its potency would finally be realized.

But we couldn’t get overconfident. I personally crafted each scarf which carried the mixture of dye made from the petals of the Flowers that Feed. Violet still had the power to manipulate the air around us, so we’d need this 3rd Element wrapped around our necks and torso for protection. These fabricated extensions would also serve as deterrents to her agenda.

But each of you, yes you: The 4th Element, The Observer proved worthwhile to the Ishan and mankind. Many of your likes, shares and kind words generated a spark which couldn’t be ignored. You served as a protection. The reason being is that since so many have been alerted by this danger, many minds have not been overtaken by the threat because we all now know that this threat truly exists.

Violet hadn’t taken into consideration such an elaborated plan. The 4 Elements combined clouded the tiny insect’s communication center. Their focus changed as suddenly they no longer craved The Flowers that feed but rather Violet herself. She watched in disgust as The Impostor’s flight patterns became sluggish then hurriedly swarmed her body. Initially there was no pain felt. But then a sharp burst ignited and she felt their tiny limbs begin to harvest her small frame. As she breathed slowly for the last time, her mind wondered where her Queen had been this entire time. She only wanted to please her. How could she…
