(Long post alert)
I've been 'uhming and ahhing' about posting a picture of myself on here for awhile.. I weirdly liked the idea of keeping my life very separate from here and not sharing who I was etc, maybe it makes it easier to share my artwork when it doesn't feel like myself posting? Who knows.
Anyways! I've decided to try be more open in sharing who I am, my art process, little things in life that make me happy, etc I thought this picture was a good way to start! Not only is it the classic cheesy 'do what you love' photo but it was taken a year ago at the end of my MA grad show and so many things have happened since then.. It reminds me of where I was then, the year I've had since; letting myself recover from things, moving cities (twice), growing as an artist and person, and the love and support I've had from my family and friends.
So happy Monday everyone! And thank you for your support on here - social media always fluctuates with me and so many times I want to delete it all but the random lovely messages I get from you guys & the inspiration from other creatives always stops me from doing so.. So thanks for everything too! 🐳💖
I know I'm super late for this, but I decided to re-do my #meettheartist drawing. I had made one 2 years ago, but this one's an updated version of it. And who knows? Maybe I'll update it again in 2 more years 😂

I remember I pulled off this commission in one day. Stayed up ALL night working on it too, since I miscalculated how long it would take to ship (last minute crunch time amirite). This commission features a happy couple on the night of their Palestinian henna. For anyone interested in wedding/henna portraits, DM me!
Atualizando meu #conheçaaartista como forma de agradecimento aos 5k de seguidores!!! 🎉🎉🎉💕💕 Capaz de amanhã voltar aos 4.999 ou 4.997 porque isso aqui ta oscilando mais que qualquer coisa hahaha mas ainda assim agradeço demais todo mundo que me acompanha por aqui e curte as minhas artes! Obrigada, pessoal ♡
Bem, quem me segue há algum tempo já tá bem familiarizado com meus gostos e desgostos hehe, mas quem tá chegando agora pode saber um pouquinho mais sobre euzínea 😄😄❤ Custei a me desenhar mas caraca, como ficou parecido! Hahaha. Ali no "o que tem na minha bolsa" nota-se que não sou uma artista raiz pois não costumo carregar estojo e sketchbook pra todo lugar por motivos de: pesa demais e eu nunca desenho mesmo hahaha. Enfim, espero que gostem ♡ Esse é meu primeiro #meettheartist digital e to orgulhosa de ter conseguido fazer! 😄💖💕
Smokey and all the colours, feeling vibrant especially that blackcurrent hiding underneath. As soon as i got home the sketchbook opened and dark whimsical ideas flowed out - just photographed my sketchbook so eyes open for that next
Art has always been a huge part of my life, even since I was a little kid. I was always drawing sonic the hedgehog and other heroes from the video games I got, and my love for drawing has only grown to where I am now. I could’ve done a lot of other things and I am very blessed to have had so many options to pursue, but choosing to commit to my craft as an artist is a choice I will life and die by. I didn’t choose this for money. I chose it because it’s what I love the most, and it’s what I wanna share with the world. I hope you all enjoy my work and will help me grow and meet new people. Here’s to brighter futures

Hey, it’s me. New meet the artist coming, kinda like a fresh start thing yes?
Sorry for the absence, a lot has happened!! My interests shifted a lot and I’ve been diving deep into fashion and movies, while leaving drawing on a sideline. Kinda didn’t want to leave to that so I will be picking it up again, since I really don’t want to lose what I worked for, as well as the love I get from you guys. Sorry if it’s been a mess the past 5 months but I’m getting there!! Just needed to find myself a bit, which I have :)
Yeet yeet it's time to update this mess and jump on the band vagon.
The last one was made in u h 8th grade of primary? Rn im in 1st of highschool so lol this sure took a while.
Im kinda glad i waited tho? Dunno. I changed alot in sone aspects tbh and yeah.
Also oh boy did i nention that the bob is the first time i had a proper haircut since bangs i had in like...3rd grade? I never had short hair and ngl it still feels wierd.
Oh yeah and i indeed do carry a bottle of ink in by bag (two actually-) and tape anddd a knife. Simply said thanks to art school i had learned to be prepared for anything. (Yes even the ink is important) I STILL DON'T HAVE A PEN THO (everyone thank @ddemian_ for mostly borrowing me one cuz im a dingus)
Well i should go, tomorow is fucking school.

[ART BELONGS TO ME]
Meet “ladybladona” 👋
or you can just call me Isabella 🤷♀️ yes, I am a real human not just spamming you to buy art (which nothing is for sale btw) 🌟
Some personal stuff (you most definitely don’t have to read): when I was younger my parents used to call me “belladonna” which means beautiful in Italian. Later, i found this to originate from the word “bladona” meaning “night shade” & thus— the “beautiful nightshade” artist was born! (But really, not as easily said; and happened slowly with a lot more self doubt, indecision, and speed-bumps) 💫
I’ll be 25 soon⏳(yikes), but somehow I’m still a student after already graduating🎓🤓 the truth is, we never stop learning no matter how many degrees we get. The day I decided I wasn’t happy where I was; was the day I quit my 9-5, moved a few thousand miles, and started all over again from scratch. And I’d do all again in a heartbeat. ✨
On the real: it’s been far from easy. I find I look outwards A LOT for praise, approval, and to be reassured by others in what I’m doing. And honestly, we all do it; that’s why we are all here promoting ourselves on social media. I find that when I don’t receive adequate acceptance from others; I feel less worthy, or their opinion of my art changes, or shapes MY own opinion of myself. This is where we get fucked up (excuse my language) perceptions as artists 👇
It’s time you took this (very common) outward struggle to gain approval—and threw it out the window & start over with me. Everyday, I care less and less about how others validate me, and care more about how I validate MYSELF. Art is one of the few pure professions left, but even it can get distorted with confused & superficial intentions. Keep it inside & fuck what everyone else thinks and is doing. It’s cliche, but MAN has it helped me keep moving forward, happily. 🌈
Thanks for reading & lets all keep bringing each other up. Stay real. ✌️ Lady Bladona
