Why 'Muscles by Milarski'?

I suspect the Milarski part is pretty obvious as it is my surname! The muscles part is a little bit harder, or perhaps the better word is 'weirder' to explain. I am completely obsessed with bodybuilding and bodybuilders!! Particularly with way they look like living sculptures, the sheer amount of training, food and even tanning that goes into sculpting them is an artwork of its own!

The designs are homage to how nature can be manipulated, whether that be with weights or Photoshop.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is ,my muse.
Coming a close second is William Morris and combined influence of both these men's visions of beauty and function that has spawned Muscles by Milarski.

I have also always been fascinated by gender roles, such as the woman as small and weak and the man as big and strong. Frankly they are outdated and unnecessary in todays society, however as they do still invade our daily lives why not have fun with them? Muscles by Milarski takes stereotypical, hyper-masculine physiques and neutralises them with hyper-feminine floral motifs and designs.
