If you don’t catch Jovan Clark while you can, you might miss him. He’s an artist, model, and avid runner, but his perfect blend of high-octane energy and chill, casual charm is what makes him stand apart from the pack. A fan of hot weather, you’ll find him working on that tan and listening to chill beats by the nearest pool, regardless of the season. We like his style and his spirit, so we took some time to figure out what makes him an effortless Cool Cat.
How is nature and outdoors important for you, and what role does it play in your life?
I run half marathons. I’ve been into that for about three or four years now and kind of relating that with nature and everything around me. I get a lot of inspiration from being outside and being active, and it kind of transitions right into my art and a lot of the stuff I do, being the person I am.
What are your thoughts about exercising, adventure and wellness in general ?
I think your mental and physical health are two of the most important things you have to take care of within your body and then of course your soul as well. I’ve definitely advanced in a lot of different areas just from taking care of my physical health and being outdoors.
What are your views on community and friendship?
Finding the right group of friends is the most important thing you can do in life. Nothing can ever really be done alone, and also, if you have too many people around you, you have too many influences, so finding the right community and friends is very important.
“Everyone should just move with their own beat of their drum. It’s your life. No one can really really tell you how to live it, so do what you think is best.”
What’s your relationship with music?
I’m in love with music. Music has always been a huge part of my life…I’m a music artist as well, so I’m starting my process and it’s very fun. I’m learning a lot about myself.
What do you like the most about summer?
Probably the heat. I’ve always been into the strong sun, getting a tan, listening to good music, and just having that summer vibe.
What three words describe a summer vibe?
Hot, high-energy, and music. I really like a lot of music with summer vibes.
In one sentence, describe a perfect summer pool day.
I’m thinking it’s in the 80s, some nice sun, a little bit of a breeze, and just some good music and good people surrounding you with a nice little picnic and a cookout.
Do you normally follow your own heart or instincts, even if that means breaking some rules?
100%, yeah. I think everyone should just move with their own beat of their drum. It’s your life. No one can really really tell you how to live it, so do what you think is best.
In a few words, can you define what being a Cool Cat means to you?
A Cool Cat is someone who really knows who they are and is comfortable in any situation…Usually laid back and just really knows how to have a good time.
What is your favorite flavor?
I like Citrus. It has enough of a hint of flavor that you can enjoy it, but it’s not too strong and sugary that you feel like it’s overwhelming.
What’s the first thing that you taste?
Probably the citrus flavor..It’s definitely something tart. And of course, the bubbles (laughs).
We can’t help but smile when we’re Jovan. With his head up and hands to the sky, it’s obvious he knows that being a Cool Cat is all about the attitude.
