Q: How did you get started on DEAL WITH DEVIL?

After I had finished High-School in 2016 I found myself applying for university (The University of Queensland) and getting accepted into an ‘Information Technology’ course in 2017, where I learned within the first year how to design and construct a website through basic HTML/CSS/JS scripting languages.

I believe there is a direct correlation between the effort you put into getting the product out there and the number of sales made.

The commute was less than ideal having to commit 3 hours every day to travel and the workload was piling up because I wasn’t passionate about the course anymore. This brought me to the end of 2017 where I transferred to a closer university and started a part-time study of Business. By the end of 2017, I had decided after feeling extremely lost and after having gone through problems with relationships with others and an ex-girlfriend I needed to find some sort of outlet to let the suffering mental state and residual emotion release.

I tried to create video games. I couldn’t ever commit to one project.

I tried to create iPhone apps. They never worked.

I tried to find anything that would make me feel better.

Little did I know that finding my mother’s old sewing machine would spark something great.

I created a t-shirt, I cut up some brown soft-cotton fabric, sewing the pieces together. And that was it. I created a hem-less, seamless brown t-shirt with a shape I liked on my body, giving it a little bit of length. From then on, I knew I wanted to at least try this and see where I could take my ideas and the emotional feedback from my mental state. I had lost all my confidence from those past experiences and this became my outlet to prove myself.
