I just realized that with that last post, I revealed my given name. So I thought I might take this opportunity to explain the business name/alias.
Volante is my mother’s maiden name, and in my opinion is quite badass. So to me it seemed like a good name for the business.
As a child, Enzo was always my favorite name. I thought it was excellent in every way, and, in the way a child does, planned on one day naming my son that, although I never really told anyone that. One day, I mentioned it to my mother, and she informed me that it was actually the name of my grandfather, who I never had the opportunity to meet.
Needless to say, the whole thing means a lot to me, and merited the honor of becoming my business name.
Also, yes I do actually shave my beard into creative designs as my logo suggests. I’ve been doing it since I started high school, so for about 10 years, and it has also become a part of my image and personality.
What different articles of clothing do you offer? Or is it just the AC hoodies?
Most of what I have for sale right now is inspired by Assassin’s Creed, but I intend to one day be selling almost everything I have sketches of on this blog. It’s honestly just hard to be designing new patterns while also keeping up with orders. But, all in good time.
It feels like only a week or two since I posted a celebratory 600 follower post, and I try not to post useless things, but this was super exciting, because I was gone for the weekend, and I come back, and suddenly I’ve got 250 new followers.
In return for your awesome support, I’m going to post an in progress design sketch.
