Begin before you’re ready.

Renowned designer and professional hell-raiser James Victore wants to drag you off your couch and throw you headfirst into a life of bold creativity.

Here are some dangerous ideas:
• The things that made you weird as a kid make you great today.

• There ain’t no rules.

Take a risk. Try them out. Live dangerously.
