Hello again! Sorry for my extended absence, I’ve been rather busy with school and life recently. Lots going on means less time to sit and blog but today, I want to share some of my favorite shots from ToyCon 2017.
Someone once asked me: “What advice would you give to your past self?”. What would I tell young me that would make their life easier? What would I remind myself in times of deep distress? When life gets hard, what words would I want to remember?
In response, I wrote fifteen simple words of wisdom, relative to me and my experience as a living human being. These are the things I tend to forget. Things I take for granted. Recurring mistakes, like the unread footnotes of my life. I wrote them down for me. I wrote them to remember. I wrote them to make them tangible.
I wrote them to share with you, in case you need some wisdom from a wondering, wandering twenty-four year old.
My last entry was fourteen whole days ago and as much as I feel bad for not writing for that long, I needed the break.
It’s been a while since my last entry and I’ve been quite a busy bee over the past few days. I had an action-packed weekend full of friendship and new opportunities which left me really tired but very happy.
I spent a good ten minutes frantically running around my house because a) I had too much caffeine and b) the sunset made the sky so visually appealing to me that I had to capture it on camera.
You know what really grinds my gears? Reposting.

“What do you like to listen to when you’re making stuff/drawing/doodling etc.?”
I’ve been asked this a lot over the course of my art/drawing/creative career. The answer always changes because I listen to a lot of things when I’m in an art jam. Recently, I’ve found what I listen to most often which yields the most successful/visually satisfying pieces. I thought I’d share it with you, in case you want to feel the same sense of ~inspiration~ I get from them.
