My name is Camrin Williams and I am your Pilot for the duration of our creative travels. Sit back, relax and have a cool beverage, because your next project is in good hands. A little bit about the design you see below, this is new branding for Camrin Williams my creative boutique where we help small business draft up cohesive marketing materials that are clear, and in line with the businesses' mission, goals and values. I use flight as a metaphor for creativity. In aviation, sometimes the weather is so bad that you can't see 10 feet in front of the nose of the plane. However, skilled Pilots like me know that if you trust your training, your co-pilot and your navigating instruments everything will turn out just fine. Kind of like design or any other creative endeavor. The real creative break throughs come from flying into uncharted territory. Discovering something new, boldly unearthing new realities and daring to go higher. But we've lost that. Frozen in fear from the nightly news that constantly bombards us like wave after wave of turbulence thrusting its self on the tarmac of our psyche.The fasten seat belt sign illuminates like lighting. From social injustice, to a collapsing Middle East and of course the pandemic. For some, the past few years has all crushed our spirit for adventure. But how will you see your way out of it? That's what we do. Like the lights on the runway guiding us home safely. Everything we design brings new ways of thinking, positivity, and hope to not only inspire, but to uplift and furthermore; be an example of light, love and leadership for all who follow. But there's a limit on how effective our work is. The plane is no good without gas. And that gas is the little motivating factor inside each of us, that tells us to either stay in the bed all day or ascend. We all have choices in life and it's your power of will that either makes this journey jovial or jaded. It's one of Camrin Williams' mission to bring out the best in everyone through creativity. But the choice is yours. So which will it be today? Jovial or Jaded? That's what the plane represents. A choice. A conscience decision to get out of bed everyday and make the most out of life. Ascend.
Check out my photo from the teal, fuchsia, and magenta colored carpet. As I graced the premiere with none other that Shangela LaQuifa Wadley herself. The award-winning Docu-series continues where the first season left off. (A PANDEMIC) After a year an half of going dark, the series continues to create positive, LGBTQIA+ affirming atmospheres in small towns across the United States. Turning three locals into Drag Superstars for the an evening of dance and performance in front of the whole town. The series stars Bob The Drag Queen, Euerka O'Hara and Shangela. (click on their names to learn more) This series is so touching as each of the queens get to know their drag kids more intimately, meeting their friends and family. We see the struggles that each of them have to deal with usually involving being accepted for who they are, discovering their new found gender roles, and finding other queer people in their town they can relate to. It will defiantly make you reach for your Kleenex. Tune in MONDAYS on HBO + streaming next day on HBOMAX.
Recently designed a website for Shangela's non-profit Feed The Queens. The organization is teaming up with The Actors Fund to give $100 grocery gift cards to out-of-work drag performers across the country. Learn more by visiting the site at www.FeedThe Queens.org

I have been blessed enough to travel and work with my good friend Shangela while she’s on tour... there is never a dull moment. NYC is an amazing city filled with many beautiful people, talent and energy. During some down time I was able to mosey on over to MOMA and taking in some fantastic work by Frida, Van Gogh, Picasso, Pollock, and more. I got the audio tour, which was great hearing interpretations of the arts meaning, history and insight. Their work gives me life and helps me to see there really can really be beauty from ashes. Especially knowing some of the trials, tribulations and turmoils that many of these artist faced.
I took this photo while on a foggy morning stroll in my neighborhood park. What so fun about shooting with the environment is that it's like an every evolving playground. The park's walkway was circular and revolved around the variety of trees and greenery. As I walked, the landscaped, sunlight and perspective all shifted. Firing off millions of possibilities in my brain for creative breakthroughs with every step I took. I kept my eye on what trees might stand out, and what caught my eye. I walked and walked until finally these these three trees alined with such perfect balance.
I recently had the opportunity to visit the Broad contemporary art museum. Located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, the building boasts interesting architecture where a single escalator takes people from the ground level to the middle of the third floor gallery. On display are works by Koons, Warhol, Jasper Johns and many more. Find out more information here.
I recently went to the Andy Warhol: Revisited exhibition at Revolver gallery. One of the many galleries at the Bergamont St. Station galleries. The collection has many of Andy working including his famous Campbell's soup cans, Marilyn monroe and more. Find out more information here revolverwarholgallery.com
