I needed a change!


Good morning, if anyone is up this early! If you're viewing me on mobile then you can't really tell, but I made a few changes to the overall look and feel of my site. I wanted something a little brighter and more welcoming and easier to navigate. So of course I had to put my prettiest painting as my site banner lol. Also my blog updates are easier to scroll through and view, as well as my feed of timelapse videos and art tutorials! I think everything looks a lot neater and put together now. What do you guys think? Do you like it better?


So this doe fairy that I started a little while ago is slowly becoming a Halloween-themed piece. Originally, I intended for her to have this bright pink and purple and beige color palette and be bright and beautiful. But now that I've worked on her a little, I see her going more dark and mysterious. And since Halloween is right around the corner, I decided to just let it happen, you know? I'm just gonna let her be what she wants to be. And maybe I'll even have some kind of Halloween special that involves her somehow! I'm currently working on her and Mac Miller, while also planning a large-scale piece of a vintage beauty that I won't disclose this early in the process lmao.

And last week, I uploaded a youtube video for the first time in idk....five years? I don't even keep track anymore of how much time passes between my timelapse drawings/paintings smh. But this particular drawing came about out of nowhere. Right after I said I was leaving the color pencils alone for a while and going back to the chalk pastels, I got inspiration out of nowhere. Well technically, the inspo came from myself. But it all happened so fast. I literally got the idea, sketched it out, finished it and uploaded the timelapse in a span of 24 hours. I worked on the drawing nonstop and finished it in one sitting. It was a 9x12" unrealistic illustration, so it only took about 2.5 hours, but still. I never do that! I named her Bubblegum for the obvious reasons. The video features a voice-over of me explaining how I inspire myself to art. You can watch me draw her below.


Speaking of my little illustrations, I'm going to get back to posting them to Redbubble so you guys can order them on phone cases, tote bags, pillows, etc. I keep forgetting that now that I make so much original work with original characters, I don't have to worry about Redbubble deleting the designs haha. And they're all pretty cute of course. I think they would look lovely on bedroom decor and bags. Other than that, the only other announcement I have is that I recently updated the guidelines on my "Commission a Portrait" page. It is now possible to pay for an HD video [digital file] of me drawing your commission! Exciting right? :)


Well I hope you guys have a nice day!
