ILLUSTRATIONS






I hope everyone had a great Christmas Holiday. As usual I over indulged, drank more then I should have, and had a blast opening gifts and spending the day in a onesie! My bf and friends spoiled me. I feel so lucky to have such wonderful people around me. I want to wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR, may 2013 be filled with new hopes, adventures, lots of happiness, success and some struggles to keep us honest and humble.

About my drawings here: this is a series I started for my website early this year but life got busy and I ended up only really drawing one. I need to find the time to finish old projects before starting new ones (my first new years resolution).  I will be drawing around 10 girls and I hope to be done by the end of January. As I work on them and get a few more done I will share them here.

If you have time to read this interview I had for the holidays, check out i-event here. I-event is an online mag for art, music and cool stuff.

WHITE CANVAS






WEARING: JNBY Leather Jacket, James Perse LS t-shirt, Mango Jeans, & Aldo Shoes

One of my favourite poets is Pablo Neruda, he is from Chile and has won a Nobel Prize for literature. I wanted to share with you all one of his remarkable quotes: “Someday, somewhere - anywhere, unfailingly, you'll find yourself, and that, and only that, can be the happiest or bitterest hour of your life.”   Relevant and inspiring all through time. It's good that we change, that we experience new things, but keep the core values of who we are intact.
Amen for some sunshine, and no rain.

DIY CARDS









If you follow me on twitter you would know that I have been talking about making Christmas cards. I always try to make my own cards no matter what the occasion; I am not just trying to save money, trust me it would be easier and less time consuming to just buy them. I like the creativity and thought that goes behind creating a unique card for someone.

This "Mini Card Collection" was inspired by the Bauhaus Art movement. This art is not for everyone, some say it is too simplistic but I find a lot of inspiration in it. If I made these using Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator it would have been 100 times easier and faster, but call me old school. I just love the pleasure of sitting down, with paper, ruler, pencil and going for it. I want to continue to use this blog as a creative outlet and to share ideas, not just Fashion.
