Minneapolis with David Maxwell
After my first year of medical school, I realized how important it was for me to express myself creatively. Shooting, planning visuals to tell a story, helped to keep me grounded and less fidgety. Because I travel a good deal for conferences and to go home for breaks, I decided to use instagram as a way to connect with other creatives/muses/designers in the new cities I would visit.
In June, I went to Minneapolis to attend the June National Leadership Institute of the SNMA (Student National Medical Association) as I sit on the national board of directors. A week or two before I left, I went through ig searching as many different hashtags as possible. I was an A1 lurker y’all. I stumbled upon David Maxwell and his line La Cleanic. There was something about his visuals that I connected with. So. I slid in his dm’s. When I asked him why he put “Can’t” on his clothing, he said: “It’s removing the “T” from the word, it’s supposed to be an inspirational take on apparel so all of the jackets have secret messages built into them.”
Below are the results of our creative efforts. I can’t think of a better way to get to know a new city or place than to create in it. God is good.
