    a lil winter sketch

    let me set the scene. i finish my last midterm, yet i still have one last assignment for this semester due. instead of doing the one assessment due in 10 and a half hours, i sat in the library and sketched on my wacom that i brought to do my assignment with. yup, instead of trying to complete the one task left on my list, i decided to spend an hour sketching away while listening to louis tomlinson say ‘yew know wat iy mean’ fifty times straight in way too many of his interviews, so math was definitely not in my brain at this point. anyways, here’s the illustration that…

    pushing twenty

    lying in bed watching the clock tick slowly back to the start of a new day . my heart palpitating as if something is going to change . as if my whole world will flip upside down when really nothing will change but the number of years i have lived . ten . the letter to myself is finished for me to read at thirty and i couldn't be more afraid of what is to come . nine . my heart beats loudly of the fear of change not wanting to let go of an entire childhood and the memories i've made . eight . here i am now trying…

    day fourteen – clock

    dear reader this look is one of my favourites cause whenever I look at this illustration I smile and have a good laugh. even when I thought of it, I was smiling because I thought it looked hilarious because of the yellow-gold clock glasses. – day fourteen : clock – media: XL Canson Mix Media sketchbook, Pental Arts Colour Brush (#101 black), Tombow Dual-Sided, White Gel Pen, Muji Ink 0.38 Pen this look gives of a seventies vibe with the flared jeans, and round glasses.

    day twelve – whale

    dear reader, this is probably one of my favourite looks throughout all the looks I did for inktober. I decided to combine the fit of ariana grande’s pink dress on jimmy fallon last year, and the colouring and look of a humpback whale, to tie in the idea of the whale. – day twelve : whale – media: XL Canson Mix Media sketchbook, Pental Arts Colour Brush (#101 black), Muji Ink 0.38 Pen this look consists of a simple black and white striped full-sleeve top which was added to represent the lines a humpback whale has on its tum. it is paired with black skinny jeans, a pair of black…

    day ten – flowing

    dear reader, this is definitely probably my least favourite look because of how it turned out. I loved the idea behind the word flowing, and I was hoping to make a gorgeous dress which didn’t exactly turn out the way I wanted it too. this is probably because I didn’t work with the shading the right way using just the ink. if I had used watercolours instead of ink, it would have worked much better. I might work with this prompt again to do my original idea. – day ten : flowing – media: XL Canson Mix Media sketchbook, Pental Arts Colour Brush (#101 black), Muji Ink 0.38 Pen this…

    day nine – precious

    dear reader, here we are again, long after inktober has ended but I still really wanted to post the illustrations I had made then. some of these looks I have been really in love with. anyways, for this particular prompt, I wasn’t particularly happy with how it turned out because of the proportions. – day nine :  precious – media: XL Canson Mix Media sketchbook, Pental Arts Colour Brush (#101 black), Tombow Dual-Sided, Gold Paint, Muji Ink 0.38 Pen this look turned out well in terms of what I wanted to show in the outfit. however, I didn’t really like how the proportion of the person came out to be.…

    day eight – star

    dear reader, this is probably my favourite in terms of how it turned out with colour! i did end up using watercolour’s for this look. i know i know. it’s not ink, however once it gets on the paper, there is no going back… like ink. so i ended up doing a galaxy theme, cause i recently perfected a piece that was set in a galaxy. i don’t know when i will post that… but here this is for now! – day eight : star –     media: XL Canson Mix Media sketchbook, Pental Arts Colour Brush (#101 black), Yarka Watercolour Palette, Muji Ink 0.38 Pen this look turned…

    twenty-eighteen : a year in review

    dear reader, it’s been a while to say the least. it’s been a hectic past couple of months with university and life happening at the same time. as you can tell, I haven’t been able to write in a while due to … things constantly happening in my life. i’ve also lost the touch of writing and have had no inspiration or motivation. this post is sort of a review of my twenty-eighteen. yes, the outside world in general has been terrible to say the least, and to be honest my personal life has been the same. yikes. i also added a few sketches and some memories from the past…
