I am a big fan of art and design so when I found out about Jason AKA ‘TEKST ARTIST’, I had to get an interview organised. You may recall I posted on Scaleogy about him and his artwork a few weeks ago and you can see that here.
He has started a really awesome business where you can commission him to create a unique piece of artwork about whatever you want for the price of the day in the year it falls on.
Confused? Well… January 1st is $1 and December 31st is $366 (it’s a leap year in case you were wondering!)
I recommend that you open his website Tekstartist.com whilst watching this interview as you will see what it’s all about.
We end up chatting business, marketing, social media and ultimately doing what you love and ‘Crushing it’, Gary Vee style!! (more explained in the interview!)
You can see Jasons’ website here: Tekstartist.com
Good news for you: I have managed to blag a 25% discount code if you wanted to order one of his pieces: “SCALEOGY” is the code!
I recommend you get hold of a piece of TEKST art as you will be part of something that is truly epic!
P.S: If you wanted to get hold of the book that inspired both Jason and myself, you can do so here: Crush It by Gary Vaynerchuck
Do you love Monaco? Who doesn’t right, it’s a pretty awesome place. Well imagine this a yacht based on the streets of Monaco.
The staggering 155m Streets of Monaco yacht is expected to cost over $1.1 billion to build and is modelled on a section of Monte Carlo, Monaco.
A LAVISH new yacht recreating the billionaire’s playground of Monaco is set to become the world’s most expensive yacht.
Currently in the design stage, the super-ship will feature smaller versions of the state’s famous landmarks such as the Monte Carlo Casino and racetrack, as well as swimming pools, tennis courts, a cinema, a go kart track and a Hotel de Paris.
Instead of traditional decks the one-of-a-kind ship will have buildings, and instead of a swimming platform it will have a beach.
Travellers will also spot waterfalls, a swim-in Jacuzzi-bar, helicopters and submarines on board.
The one-of a kind ship could be home to 16 guests and 70 crew with the main apartment spread over three floors and 445 sq m.
Linking upper and lower living areas is the Atrium – featuring seven guest suites, a bathroom, bedroom, dressing room, reception and balcony.
The idea for the super-boat, designed by Yacht Island Design, was sparked by car racing and developed into something more innovative.
“It is basically a floating city,” company director Rob McPherson said.
“The design theme called for a unique yacht that reflected the style and sophistication of the principality.
“We want to create a truly unique environment that could take the principality of Monaco to the ocean.”
The ship will exceed the $1 billion price tag reportedly paid by Roman Abramovich for his Eclipse yacht.
A second creation by Yacht Island Design will be a smaller 85-metre yacht based on a Pacific Island theme.
