    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…

    day six – drooling

    dear reader, first of all, i finally posted on time in a couple days! it’s been a while. i’m happy that its done now for the day cause now i need to go study for my midterm that it two days! yikes. anyways, the concept for this piece wasn’t too hard to decide on, cause i knew right away, that it would be interesting to design some sleepwear. i instantly wanted to do some chic victorian night dress, but i decided that if the prompt was going to be drooling, i’d need to design something not so chic. – day six : drooling –  media: XL Canson Mix Media sketchbook,…

    day five – chicken

    dear reader, I know what you all are wondering, in what way could someone represent a chicken in a decent modest fashion look? well, I have figured it out. it wasn’t easy to say the least. I went through many different roughs and ideas before I finally settled on this look. it’s not exactly perfect, but it does work. I took the theme of chicken, and sort of went … left. think about chicken wire and the boning technique used in some avand grade pieces before looking at the illustration below. – day five : chicken – media: XL Canson Mix Media sketchbook, Pental Arts Colour Brush (#101 black), Muji…
