Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve
Interesting fact: The term ‘wear your heart on your sleeve’ originates from a middle age custom in which jousting knights sported the colors of the ladies they were supporting on their sleeves. The expression was first recorded in Shakespeare’s Othello in 1604 as Iago attempts to appear faithful: It is sure as you are Roderigo, were I the Moor, I would not be Iago: In following him, I follow but myself; heaven is my judge, not I for love and duty, But seeming so, for my peculiar end. For when my outward action doth demonstrate the native act and figure of my heart in compliment extern, ‘tis not long after but I will wear my heart upon my sleeve for days to peck at. I am not what I am.
Well, obviously, at Artist J we take it a step further. We are realist and opportunist. Self-expression is who we are and it doesn’t begin or end with what is represented on your sleeves. It’s everything that you do, everything that you wear and everything that you say without saying a word. Recognize the true meaning of the slogan and Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve!
