coloring my clothing (and maybe yours, too)

i've never said this before, but if you can, read to the end. there's something really exciting waiting down there 🙂 i mentioned in my last art post that i had something special to share that deserved its own post. this is long overdue but there's a type art that i've been exploring these past… Continue reading coloring my clothing (and maybe yours, too)

qu(art)antine

sitting in my cold bedroom beneath a cold window displaying the lovely view of a cold brick wall naturally led me to go back and scroll through the light-soaked photos of this past winter vacation in the sunshine state. one particular photo caught my attention - it was of my sister’s face laced with the… Continue reading qu(art)antine

tribute to a cream-filled-doughnut-filled girl

when i saw this instagram photo of a newly-pregnant jenna joseph, i was blown away. the shadows playing across her face and the backdrop of cool-toned green foliage were the perfect compliments to her flawless golden-hour dewy peach-kissed face. out of the blue that wonderful, elusive and sporadic thing called "motivation" hit me like a… Continue reading tribute to a cream-filled-doughnut-filled girl

//binder covers//

after two years of stuffing my latin handouts into my backpack and losing them just in time for the next class, i succumbed to organization (or rather overcame my laziness) and decided to get myself a binder. i came home from office depot with a clean, fresh, sparkling new one under my arm but the… Continue reading //binder covers//

divinely inspired doodles

while school has another month before it decides to hit millions of children on the back of their heads like sledgehammers, my doodles have had another occasion besides chemistry class to flourish. i had the opportunity to attend a beautiful retreat a couple of weeks ago which served to strengthen my faith and create some… Continue reading divinely inspired doodles

a tribute to classic elegance

i've loved graphite art ever since I was a nine-year-old in Mrs Dorothy's class and i looked into her little hand-held mirror and drew something that looked nothing like me. but it looked human, at least. and i progressed. i didn't pick up a drawing pencil for more than a year prior to 2018 when… Continue reading a tribute to classic elegance

schoodles

i can never sit still during a lecture or unengaging class ... my hands must always be occupied. thank goodness I can doodle or who knows how these past couple of school years would have gone. here is a collection of some of my favorite schoodles. whipping up a dream castle whilst writing conjugations most… Continue reading schoodles

tribute to blurryface |-/

My hands are black from the pencil pigment and I thought of Tyler's, just as black, during the rebel era that was blurryface. this was definitely the hardest album cover drawing I've done ... copying the tiny patterns from the original cover was so tedious that it took a full night of drawing to finish.… Continue reading tribute to blurryface |-/

bullet it all away

i've scrolled through hours of gorgeous bullet journal pages inked by insanely talented letterers and artists and sighed in admiration of the pleasingly aesthetic flow of their lives; but also in defeat due to my own lettering deficiencies. the attraction of such a simple and pleasing form of daily organization however always brought me back… Continue reading bullet it all away
