We are back for a special YUNG 'N' SPRUNG episode of Talkshops!

For this special episode we are featuring an all ART & DESIGN speaker panel who will be sharing their knowledge, thoughts and ideas.

Topic of discussion:
We know that finding your feet in the creative industry can be quite difficult, most don’t know where to start. There is no specific handbook, especially if you’re a YUNG artist.

It’s fair to say that the creative industries progress and change more rapidly than most industries. Especially with the creative industries reliance on technlogy, we are seeing new work created daily from all around the world. Influencing, shaping and changing culture.

Hear from our speakers as they break down their thoughts on the topic, how they started their journey along with insight into their current creative processes that help them create daily.

LOUSY Ink - Ruskidd / Mike Eleven
Owners and Founders of Lousy Ink

Lousy Ink is the world's first 100% recycled artist ink. By re-purposing old materials in the form of a friendly and affordable product, they encourage spontaneity, creativity and most-importantly, throwing caution to the wind. They believe great art should always come from great artists, not great tools.

Their ink is sourced from a local plastics recycling company, where all of your old inkjet printer cartridges end up. These cartridges are crushed for recycling, and the runoff ink is drained and stored away.

They then give the forgotten ink a second chance by upcycling what would otherwise become landfill or burned as chemical waste. Lousy celebrates mistakes as the process of creation and it’s this “If at first you don’t succeed…” ideology that our brand revolves around.

Artists using their product include BarekBen Lopez ArtYeetheeast, AKinninmont and loads more!
