061 - Laxmi Hussain, Artist and Illustrator

This week, we’ve got Laxmi Hussain on the show. She’s an incredibly talented artist and illustrator who paints and draws in mainly blue ink and focuses on the female form, expressing what is beautiful about the diversity of women’s bodies, that we aren’t all the same and that should be celebrated. As a trigger warning, we do talk about the death of Laxmi’s mother last year and how she navigated grief through her work, so if this topic is a bit too triggering today, do come and listen on another day. We also talk about: - How motherhood gave her the push to put her art out there. - Refining her style over the years. - How her work became her therapy during her mother’s short illness. - Why we don’t talk enough about grief. - Her experience of being on Sky Art's Artist of The Year and honesty on social media. - Her advice for any artist looking to get started.

059 - Jazmin Lee, Founder of Plus Equals

This week, we’ve got Jazmin from @plusequals on the OGB podcast. Plus Equals is a plus-size gender-neutral brand catering for sizes 14-42. Founded out of the frustration of fierce fashion for fatter femmes, Jazmin created Plus Equals with one mission and one mission alone - get shaking things up. This was definitely one of my favourite guest episodes to record and you’ll see why; Jazmin is an incredible person with an incredible story. We talked about: - Jazmin’s story from losing her mum at a young age, caring for her ill grandmother, from wanting to be a music producer to deciding to follow her passion and do Fashion Promotion at uni (all whilst being a carer). - Finding purpose after grief and traumatising, life-changing moments. - Changing the course of Plus Equals in the early days to ensure she was catering for those she wanted to cater for. - Using her voice, the importance of representation and her relationship with the words ‘plus size’. - Winning The Princes Trust National Enterprise Award and the impact the Trust has had on her life/business. - Her daily practise with self-love and learning from the negatives.
