Creative Weirdos: Meagan Mullins

We are the weirdos. Creatives and artists have for a long-time been associated with the strange, the weird, and the uniquely different. When I was younger, weird was used as a slur, something to make you feel badly about not being like the rest of them.

Ode to Overcast

Ode to Overcast

Overcast, you are given such a bad rep! Endless people rushing to pick the sunniest day- The brightest day. Little do they know what you can give. Little do they know that you hold the key to beautiful couple photos and beauty magazine level selfies.
