I’m working on a lot of things but nothing I can show yet, so for now here is this generic sketch of August #sketch
“There is a fundamental reason why we look at the sky with wonder and longing—for the same reason that we stand, hour after hour, gazing at the distant swell of the open ocean. There is something like an ancient wisdom, encoded and tucked away in our DNA, that knows its point of origin as surely as a salmon knows its creek. Intellectually, we may not want to return there, but the genes know, and long for their origins—their home in the salty depths. But if the seas are our immediate source, the penultimate source is certainly the heavens… The spectacular truth is—and this is something that your DNA has known all along—the very atoms of your body—the iron, calcium, phosphorus, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and on and on—were initially forged in long-dead stars. This is why, when you stand outside under a moonless, country sky, you feel some ineffable tugging at your innards. We are star stuff. Keep looking up.”

Finished this little lady - she’s going to her new home soon ! I had lots of fun doing a curvier body shape, definitely going to experiment more with that in the future ♡
Commissionned piece of Queen Elizabeth 1st! I tried keeping the symbolism close to what I could gather out of her fascinating portraits.
Hope you like it!
I was commissionned last year to paint a tattoo design for Andi Autumn -needless to say I felt very lucky and so thankful! For those that are not very familiar with eastern fashion, she’s a very stylish young women living in Hong Kong and is extremely fashion forward.
I can’t even explain how inspirational it was to work with her on coming up with an Andi-esque version of Alice in Wonderland ♡ Not to forget that the tattoo artist did a wonderful job with the flowers and colors, it all pops so well ♡♡♡
If you don’t know her Instagram I definitely recommand checking it out, she’s a creative wonderrr /o//
Anonymous asked: Hello love! Just wondering what sort of markers you used!
Promarkers, Touch and Prismacolors markers. Touch is my favorite so far because it’s easy to find replacements, they are available in every art stores I go to, and they have the presttiest pastel without making them too dark. There’s other brands I’ve been trying out but I can’t remember the namee
Anonymous asked: How did you get so good at drawing figures? *-*
Observation and lots of practice! I find that aside from drawing humans, doing life drawing of plants is super helpful in general, since it’s really small and precise volumes. But anything works, really, as long as you train your brain to break down what you see in shapes.
beotica asked: what type of sketchbook are you using
It’s a medium sized moleskine with really heavy and thick paper, you can basically sketch with anything as long as it’s not too wet, I love it!
If I were to start selling originals mixed media drawing like these, would anyone be interested?
