Getting tattooed is not too much of a big deal nowadays; almost every other person has one – either elaborate or just a momento. I’ve been wanting to have a tattoo since I was 16, but due to my indecisiveness and constantly changing ideas, I didn’t find the right time to do it. I told myself to get it only when I have the feeling of “this is it”. And it didn not come to me until very recently. In case you’re a tattoo newbie like I am, maybe some of this information will help you sort out your thoughts – so let’s talk ink!
Not so much text this time as there is a short and fast (stay focused, you might miss it!) timelapse video of the custom cover notebook (or sketchbook). Yes, I also have a frickin youtube channel with speeded up videos of drawings, which were part of what pulled me into drawing in the first place, I wanted to make something like that! Here it goes. Don’t mind my setup and the fact that I was balancing my phone on questionable objects while trying not to go out of frame and not let my hair interfere with the whole thing (which it slightly did, I think it wants to be a movie star). See below!
Mmm, that sweet icing! And the soft muffin bites… with some sprinkle and cherry on top..! No, not a recipe this time, just some sweetness that you can eat by… looking at it?
I love drawing sweets! Muffins, candy, cupcakes, pastries, donuts and all that. First realised this joy because of an assignment for college (I’m about to start senior year at SCAD! Woo~) where we had to draw a whole setting of sweets. It just comes out so pretty! And then I drew a custom illustration for someone cause they also enjoyed the tasty look, so today I’ll showcase a new custom cover design for some notebooks.
I absolutely love painting with watercolors. It might be my favorite painting medium due to how fast the preparation and painting process is. I have a habit of wanting to finish what I start the moment I begin, in one go. Of course, not with bigger and more serious projects.
So here are some in-progress shots of one of my recent paintings of a traditional looking flower pot, I felt like doing something like this, since the last time I did still life was in art school as a kid! I will in the future possibly post about the stuff I use while painting and the personal details that might be useful to beginners, but for now it’s just a brief look into the artwork.
Since I’ve opened the notebook shop, I’ve tried some pretty looking drawing methods, one of which being silver and gold markers on dark surfaces. Artists know how dark backgrounds can be a headache to work on, as the pencil sketch might not be visible, using a white pencil might lead to marks that won’t go away. As I make custom covers for notebooks, I really want to offer some awesome looking light on dark styles.
