To the sky!

Here’s a concept! A spaceship specifically designed to store up on: 1. An abundance of books, 2. Arts inspired from all the incredible songs on my playlist, and 3. Coffee.
I’m fully aware that i come up with the most random thoughts and drawing at 2:00AM in the morning! However, for this particular thought, I blame Owl city and their delightful spacetime travel themed songs. In any case, I’ve thoughtfully decided to spare y’all from the exact embarrassing number of times I’ve played ‘To the sky’ today.

The music:Owl city, to the sky

“There’s a realm above the trees
Where the lost are finally found
So touch your feathers to the breeze
And leave the ground”

The scene:Girl in space

Sia

Hey guys,

Shucks! It’s been way too quiet in here.

The music: ‘Suitcase’ by Sia

“We got things to do
We got plans to make
And I wanna take you with me”

 

  

The girl: loud!

The getup: blurry shapes and whimsy colors.

Sweater weather

Greetings, from my very wet corner of the world! This few days, the sun, in a – typical uncool style – decided it had better things to do than hang around here, so basically it’s just one giant stretch of rain!

Quite nice.

Particularly, if one gets to spend the whole day listening to music and perfecting the act of doing absolutely nothing. In related news, I made a playlist and gave it a proper title. Can you guess?  It’s “Sweater Weather”. I don’t get to loll around as much as I want, but I get to draw, whilst listening to an abundance of music and share it with you guys!

 

The girl: Uh, cozy is the new black?

The getup: Jeans and sweater.

 

Is it sunny in your own corner? Send a little sunshine my way, will ya! x 

Art & Denim

In the words of David Dundas, “I wake up in the morning, I pull on my jeans and I feel all right.”

By “All right” I mean comfortable, snug and confident. 

I find it beautiful that regardless of our cultural identity or unique style –be it street wear, casual or formal. Denim makes us feel a certain social connection with the rest of the world in a completely laid back way.


The Girl: Outfit reflects a self confident woman.

The Getup: Skinny jeans, gray T-shirt paired with headphones and red heels.

Human

Happy sunday! Pray tell, how is your evening going?
I’ve spent the better half of mine listening to soft rock songs, drinking tea in a gigantic cup and doodling. I enventually decided on centering my drawing on this music, because i like that the song particularized the feeling of weakness associated with the flaws of being human. I like that it reinforces the importance of acknowledging ― particularly when we feel like it’s our prerogative to take up the world on our shoulder ― that, we are humans, and we sometimes trip and fall.

Featured music: Christina perri, human</em

I’m only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
‘Cause I’m only human

Made by me!
Made by me!

The getup: Baby blue/maya blue loose crop top, paired with multicolor pattern, flared mini skirt and an ankle length wedge boot.

The girl: you are adequate, you are resilient, and you are strong. There’s nothing delicate about you!

I hope you like the drawing. 🙂

A little braver

Greetings! This is the first post featured on my new project: Music & Art (i’m so excited!). Here, i’ll be posting more drawings and also featuring the music that will inevitably inspire this drawings.

Featured Music: A little braver, by Empire

I’ve been listening to this song on repeat and it’s no surprise seeing as how it brings to mind; love’s uncertainty that comes with unanswered questions, and the courage to become better and braver. What’s more, it has great lyrics and an amazing tune. What’s not to like, right?

“When it gets hard

I get a little stronger now

I get a little braver now

And when it gets dark

I get a little brighter now

I get a little wiser now

Before I give my heart away”

The girl: Jess

The getup: Black lace gown, with nipped-in waist line and flared out silk skirt.

Description: My drawing illustrates Jess in a ball gown with an air of questionable sureness which is suggested by the song depicted above. She is also seen ambiguously reaching out, or perhaps, letting go of something out of sight.

Mindless doodle #2

Brave

The girl: Brave
The getup: Purple gown with silver sprinklings

I made this sketch and I named it Brave!

The state of my mind usually reflects on my drawing. Like, when i’m sad, I tend to create a saddish-looking sketch, but, when i’m happy I’d sketch something rather cheerful and colorfully bright. Other times when i’m really down, drawing would most likely than not serve as an outlet where I can both vent my disapointment and still create something artistic.

Lately, I’ve been feeling alot more braver than usual, hence the existence of this sketch, and to tell you the truth its an incredibly nice feeling. My new found confidence has everything to do with the books i’ve been reading and the music i’ve been listening to. The type that reminds me that i’m beautiful. The type that tells me to wear that blue dress I love so much, the one everyone else have decided dosen’t suit me. The type that reminds me that I’m not alone. The type that encourages me to speak out. The type that urges me to conquer my fears because i am capable.

So, hey you! This post is written as much for you as it is for me. As long as there’s something you ardently enjoy doing, be sure to make use of it positively. Whether it is singing; I hope it makes you feel alive, I hope it makes you happy and I hope it lifts your spirit whenever you feel down in the dumps or out of sort.
Dancing; let it help you recognize your self-worth and your ability as a person.
In speech or writing; let the flow of words give rise to freedom. Let it tell your story and inspire the rest of the world.

Remember, we are game-changers. All of us!
