Self-love: New year doodle

Two things you guys: 1. Today marks the beginning of a new year!  

2.I’ve managed to downplay my excitement. Well, maybe just a tiny bit! But, hey i did suppress the desire to write this post in shouty caps.

I’m just so grateful for all the lessons 2016 has taught me, for everyone (friends + family) who were and still are, an embodiment of joy and inspiration in my life through the year, and importantly, for you, yes you! Dear readers, i’m so thankful for you guys, taking the time to read, like and comment on my blog (a.k.a random ramblings). Thank you, thank you!

In the excitement of all that today stands for, i’m sharing this sketch i made. It’s a little different from the style i usually do, because i’ve decided i’m going to move all out of my comfort zone and try out new things, this year.

I got the inspiration to make this while watching Hailee Steinfeld’s music video ‘love myself’

Drawing made by me!
Drawing, made by me!

The girl: Mia

The getup: glittery green coat, worn on a short dress. Accessorized with close fitted yellow necklace and black knee-length heels.

Here’s hoping for the absolute best from 2017. Nothing less! Wishing you a sparkling and glittering New year, guys!

Happiness is…

When i’m not occupied with writing, here’s what i do, I draw. It may appear as mediocre or relatively unimportant in the general scheme of things, but it’s no less important to me as breathing.
Most young people my age pull out their phone when they are at a boring gathering to appear cool. I, however always bring my sketch book to doddle at any chance i get, and considering how I tend to get anxious in the presence of large number of people, drawing never fails to calm me down.

Drawing isn’t something i do to strive for a prize, mostly because it’s simply an activity i take great delight in doing. The emotive response I get when i draw are sometimes beyond words and other times i simply want to launch into a long-winded speech on how completely happy it makes me. At any rate, my style of drawing is solely mine and I hope will only improve with time.

I’ll end this introduction with one of my favourite quote:

“While drawing, I discover what I really want to say.” –Dario Fo
