Shoutout to Brotha Zeke (thats my nickname for him), 1/2 of the creative brand Sky Welkin, for rocking with the EverydayDopeLife team for another segment of our “Creative Repertoire” series. Yesterday we dropped the first installment with Virginia Beach, VA emcee, Mike Strong, and we’re switching up the gears a bit, stepping outside of Hip-Hop music and diving into the culture in which it inspires..
Sky Welkin started out as an idea conjured up between Zeke and Derrick Simon, the artist, while working at Pusha T’s Cream shop in Norfolk, VA. Since its formation, the brand has accomplished Children’s Books, Urban wear, Coffee mugs, and even cookie cutters for the holidays, all the whilst implementing a positive and nourishing message into the surrounding communities and beyond: build as you grow.
During our time with Zeke, we got the opportunity to gain real insight into the Sky Welkin brand and what purpose the fashionably styled art embodies. The Sky Welkin Spring ’17 collection will be making its debut very soon and will also include a few new pieces to their inventory. Visit SkyWelkin.com to peep items still available from the winter drop.
If you gain anything at all from this series, understand this.. being average is mediocre. Continue to BUILD as you GROW.
