уже третий месяц наверно рисую только на планшете, пока возилась с кошкой было не до прыганья с банками, а потом как-то привыкла.
к слову, в прошлом я была ярым ненавистником диджитала (ну, определенная техника и стилистика меня как бесила, так и бесит). понятно, что это было глупо, тк планшет - всего лишь средство, и как бы некоторым не хотелось думать, что рисует машина, если человек никогда не рисовал и вдруг сядет за планшет, никакого чуда не произойдет. по крайней мере не знаю случаев, чтобы кто-то через 15 мин вдруг встал из-за компа Хоппером, например.
ну и конечно не устану приводить в пример любимого Хокни, он взялся за электронную кисть уже будучи старичком, потому что горит человек своим делом и пробует новое, пока может. в общем он мне и помог преодолеть определенный скепсис, так что не только для рабочих моментов теперь игрушка, но и просто в радость
So that surprise I kept hinting about on insta stories is coming this Wednesday! I’m dead excited about it. I’ve got no idea how I’ve actually managed to keep my gob shut about this for this long to be honest! And it gave me a great excuse to not only use one of my scratch cards but to also tell you that my llama scratch cards have finally been listed! Double whammy! 🙌🏻 *jumps around giving virtual high fives* Any guesses as to what might be happening Wednesday? P.s I’m not telling you until then! 😉✏️✂️
Earlier this month the IPCC (intergovernmental panel on climate change) released its 2018 report. It’s a comprehensive examination of the impacts of a global temperature rise which, at the current trajectory of carbon emissions, is looking to be higher than predicted.
It forecasts a nightmarish future, one that’s looking inevitable if unprecedented changes aren’t made.
In 2017, Trump left the Paris Agreement.

Day 5/31 Chicken, I been keeping up my drawing but not my sharing them so this is gonna be operation catching up!
I was at a super cool time of my life 2 weeks ago, after having my first baby, was trying to make a living from home freelancing and working on my passion, moved back to Spain to my home town, where finding a job is super hard. Well I found a job I couldn’t refuse with in a month of short of looking for one! I really didn’t look much for one as I was trying to get on freelancing doing my passion but having a baby u get some responsability so it was an offer I couldn’t refuse! Now I’m working 9h a day trying to figure out how to squeeze in my passion! I’m not giving up! I can do this!
Welcome to Your New Life ⬇️
This week's (delayed) #FavoriteSongFridays is from the first part of Side A by @alohahamusic, "Welcome to Your New Life".
Even though this album came out about 3 years ago, it's been in heavy rotation for me over the last year. I briefly mentioned in the artist spotlight post for Jake Sinclair, that this album is one of the best breakup/heartbreak albums ever. I had a "break up" of sorts within my career and its really taken me a long time to get over. This album really helped me cope with the loss of something I loved. .
This particular lyric has always stuck out to me because playing music was the writers way of coping with the hurt in that new phase of life, and listening to music was mine. .
I think with any major life change, especially if it wasn't necessarily a positive change, there should be some outlet that you can turn to to help cope. .
Art normally is mine, but since it was part of the cause of the loss of my job, I was afraid to create. For so long I've been afraid that I chose the wrong path in life as a designer because of how much I've been told by superiors that I'll never make it because my skills were lacking. And unfortunately I fed that fear and fumbled through that hurt by listening to depressing and sad music. .
While I felt I would never crawl out of the deep pit of depression I was in, I kept fighting every day and thankfully I'm still here to talk about coming out on the other side. It's still something to deal with day by day, but it does get better. So to anyone reading this who is going through a tough time, please find some way to cope. If any of you just need a friend or an ear to listen, my DMs are always open. I would love to talk to any of you 💜

12. Don Quixote, Kitri Variation, Act III 🌹 I went for a softer, painterly vibe for this one and I’m undecided on how I feel about it. But it’s fun to play with different brushes and methods while developing my style. 🖤✨
Who ever thought life could be this good? I’m truly living my best life painting cute things (like this cake 🤤) and creating products for bigger businesses and my own shop to share with all of you and I kind of have to pinch myself on a daily basis.
If you had told me ten years ago in my last year of high school that this would be what my life looked like, I’d never believe you. That 17 year old girl was scared, had no one to count on, and really didn’t have a bright looking future ahead of her but I think it definitely took being “that girl” to be “this girl” and to appreciate this life because it is so different from where I started.
I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather be but right here in this moment doing what I love and making a living of it. This business has been so much work but it’s honestly where I find some of the greatest joy - I’m thankful to have this life and to all of you who make it possible. 💗 Thanks for being my people, I love you more than you know.
