Loud Paintings was started as a comic book company, so we have an affinity for pairing images with words. We are all carrying smartphones nowadays, so instead of taking selfies, try and capture something beautiful in your daily life and add some words to it. People say an picture is worth a thousand words, but try and keep it under 20😉
