Outgoing Mail!

I'm still slow to respond to my snail mail pile, but I still respond! (Thats what counts right?) I had a few more than this but after I dropped them in the box I realized that I only photographed 2 out of the 4. Oh well! I hope the recipients like them! I've still been practicing my gouache skills and it is still a bit rocky, but getting better!!

August Art Journal!

I'm super behind on posting this past months art journal! I've been a bit unmotivated. Still posting bits of drawing challenges on my instagram, but yeah over all not producing much art! I hope that changes soon. Lots of good creative vibes seem to be coming with the fall weather. I had a lot of cool illustration things going on in this journal but also a few pages that turned into a bit of a mess. BUT thats one thing I like about these journals, they don't need to be perfect and now i'll have learned for next time!

Song and Doodle #73

A bit ago I stumbled upon THIS wonderful list of 200 Greatest Songs by 21st Century Women. The whole playlist is really kinda amazing and nostalgic. Its weird how many of these songs I forgot I knew! Also how many song were part of me growing up. Overall its just a lovely list! BUT I'm writing this post because the number one pick is AH-mazing! Now when the song Paper Planes by MIA first was release it was terribly over played and I didn't like it very much. Now that I'm older and I'm actually paying attention to what she's singing about, I really love it! I think she tackled a subject in a really witty and clever way. This song has never felt more present then it does today! More and more immigrants are being attacked and blamed. Its pure insanity and makes me crazy just trying to understand where all the hate is coming from. But I like that she can poke fun at all the absurdity that is our society today. Any ways I'm done ranting! haha
