christmas-card

hello friends,

i’ve been extremely busy as of late. i had three shows this weekend which resulted in me getting sick, so i’ve taken a few days to myself to recover instead of doing the things on my never-ending to-do list. i’m in a weird mood tonight – a type of mood i get in every once in a while when i feel really done with life. it’s this feeling where i dream of a world with fantasy and magic and all i want to do is listen to pretty classical music (currently the little prince soundtrack… a+ film btw). i guess when i’m sad i just turn to imagining a world where i can fly.

anyway, the illustration above is just a little idea i wanted to try out. i really want to get into digital art more. i can’t say i have my own style yet, so i’ve been experimenting with different styles in hope that mine will naturally form. i love imagining cute little moments like this that i hope to share with someone someday.

cloverkate

i am her

and she is me

but i am not what

she wants to be

 

i lose control

i don’t know why

and she’s who suffers

she’s who cries

 

heart racing

mouth drying

tears falling

eyes prying

stomach turning

face shying

breath catching

life dying

 

but after all

i am her

and she is me

 

i can’t escape

and neither can she

this is a lil ole poem about mental health. there are some days i wish i could be a robot and not experience all the weird things my brain does.

card kit giveaway w/ the witty gritty paper co!

Today I have a fun giveaway for you guys! I’ve collabed with Meredith from the Witty Gritty Paper Co to give away an emergency card kit, a new product they just launched on Saturday. This is something I’ve honestly wished for before when I’m in a pinch and need a last-minute card. The kits are designed by Meredith, a self-taught artist who started this website with her mom to give the world cute and funny cards when store-bought ones don’t cut it.

I’ve collabed with them before, and I have to say, my favorite part of their product is the cute packaging. They go above and beyond adding stamps, stickers, washi tape, and sparkly tissue paper to make it feel like christmas. Oh, and they also sent me a little christmas gift last year. How amazing is that?

So they sent me a kit to try out for myself. It comes with seven cards/envelopes, sticker seals, and a cool pen. They have four different kits for different occasions, but the birthday kit comes with a pizza pen (lol isn’t it great).
