    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 seven – exhausted

    dear reader, here is a look representing how i will look tomorrow morning after studying all night for my midterm. yes, i have a midterm early in the morning tomorrow, and here i am posting this. i’m posting this early, because i need to go study… anyways, here’s one of my favourite illustrations, that i can definitely imagine myself in for late night studying at two am, with a nice warm cup of tea. or even while arting and watching gilmore girls in my bed. – day seven : exhausted – media: XL Canson Mix Media sketchbook, Pental Arts Colour Brush (#101 black), Muji Ink 0.38 Pen the look consists…

    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…

    day four – spell

    dear reader, this might be my favourite look in terms of it being heavily inspired by a very close place in my heart. the place is hogwarts. i mean, i did say that this blog and my instagram feed is slowly showing how much of a hufflepuff I am (right now just with the colour palette). don’t worry, more will definitely be coming soon! anyways, back to the look. it is greatly inspired by everything inspired by harry potter, and hogwarts. i mean the entire look is black and yellow! I took inspiration from the classic snape turn in the first movie with his robe swirling around majestically behind him.…

    day three – toasted

    dear reader, a new inkvember is here! who would have thought it would be coming so soon, with all the work I have! yet here I am once again procrastinating doing this instead of working on my assignments. anyways, this is one of my favourite looks so I hope that you all will love it as much as I do! it is of the theme toasted, which I think the look represents well. I feel like this look would be perfect for the super cold windy snowstorm days here in Canada. pushing through the snow coming down hard, but still looking cute in this look! – day three : toasted…

    day two – tranquil

    dear reader, days pass by filled with math equations left and right. filled with studying for midterms and few hours of sleep. filled with work and at-home tutoring. filled with starting new projects each and everyday. filled with days of no sleep and just constant studying. filled with “self-care” days turned into seeing people and catching up on inktober. that’s how my life has been like for the past few weeks. whenever I have even the littlest bit of time, i’m trying to stay in touch with friends, or trying to catch up on inktober. I am still very behind on it, but it’s going. I really am hoping for…

    day one – poisonous

    dear reader, happy inktober! i’m so excited for this month! i’ve been waiting for this for a long time because I’ve had art block for a while, and with inktober and fashion week happening i’m so inspired and want to put out all my ideas! i would like to say that i won’t be posting an inktober piece every single day, on both this blog and my Instagram. this is because I am honestly probably the busiest this month. however, i will be posting a collection of them together every few days as posts on Instagram. of course, I will do a final post for the final collection of inktober…

    lil landscapes

    a few lil sketches i did a couple months ago of landscapes that i love with a few notes about them below denmark . small colourful buildings in rows along the water canal . small boats lined up along the edges of the river . a beautiful instagram worthy view . || a little farmhouse in the pararies on a clif . pen on the side where animals stay . there is a thatched roof with hay . there is a body of water on the other side of the clif . around the area of where poldark is filmed . || hobbiton . baggend . bilbo baggins door to his house . red door, wooden frames, and bushes all around . “i think i’m quite ready…
