Vegetarianism

Don’t eat me, please…

So I became Vegetarian. Yes, i did. When asked why, i wish i could deliver a heated speech on how cruel it is to slaughter innocent creatures for pleasure, on how humans have a responsability toward the rest of the animal kingdom or on how amazing it is for you health; but i don’t.

I ‘d rather answer with another question : “Why do you eat meat?”

It is quite interesting the kind of answer people come up with : Culture, the food chain, etc. What i found though is that most people just don’t care.

I got exposed and was willing to try it out after asking myself the same question; also out of curiosity. I turned out not being able to feel comfortable eating meat after hearing about the impact a meat diet has on the world, so i stopped.

Driving issues

I can’t drive. Beside making me perpetually dependent from someone else which is impractical, it also not quite seen in a good eye by other(South African and Congolese society here). For my defense in an ideal civilization i wouldn’t need to.
Ideal civilization : Perfectly effective public transport in and out of cities, buses, Train and very few taxis. Personal transportation system? Bicycles. Cars and engine machines reserved to big trucks and ambulances.
If it was that simple.
Our time is soo dependent on oil and petrol based powered machines that even if nobody owned their own cars the impact on the environment would not be considerable, or would it?
Walking is good for you. You stay fit, it’s cheap and entertaining. There is no traffic jam meaning you are always in control and it allows you time to think. So Overall beneficiary experience.
While taking the pledge to never drive a car is pointless and impractical maybe thinking about it isn’t so. Reducing our dependence on personal transportation system, recycling and switching off our lights when we don’t need them is not either.
So for as long as I can I will try not to learn how to drive a car, then if the pressure is too great I will maybe consider getting a driver :).

Hello world!

Well hello world!! What should we start with?? A presentation maybe??

My name is Edher Numbi and I’m a regular joe with a buzzing brain. This blog is a landing site for anybody interested in keeping in touch with the latest project I’m working on.

You should expect post about design, branding, illustration and advertising. Links from my twitter account, and updates from the facebook page, and finally information and contact detail of my client when applicable.

Currently I just finished two exciting project with clothing brands soon to emerge in the south african market(shhh…=), will share as soon as the clients give me the GO.
I’m also working on establishing another blog named Project Gaia, a blog. Showcasing the illustrations part of a serie of artworks raising awereness on climate change. More on this later.

And I’m gonna finish up by offering my sympathy to the family, the loved ones, the Kenyan people and the rest of the world my sympathy on the death of Wangari Maathai, a great activist in the struggle for environmental responsability and Nobel Laureat. I decided to dedicate the Project Gaia, and the first artwork on the list to her.

Thank you for you time
