loving the flecks of colours in the navy ♡
I'M MAKING A NOTEBOOK FROM SCRATCH, Y'ALL!!⠀I was gonna only share this via InstaStories but this project is artsy and crafty enough to post it here aswell.⠀It's so much fun, I'm telling you. I used one if my illustrations in the cover and it turned out great (as you can see). I'm so happy with the results. Next week I'll glue the pages block to this little guy. Can't wait to see it finished!⠀Do you like what you see too? Let me know in the comments, please! Have a great weekend everyone 😊♥️⠀#wip #myart #bookbinding #bookmaking #artisan #notebook
Can i tell you how strange it feels to be back here in the land of large format colored pencil? it’s been well over a year since I’ve worked like this in the medium and that is insane! It feels like the oddest combination of the most comfortable, natural thing and the most awkward uncharted water. It’s not unlike playing an instrument and realizing you’ve got to get your brain out of it and trust your hands to do the work. There were many moments this evening when i was sure i was ruining it. Absorbency is a very fine line when working with waxy pencil on panel... i can only layer about four deep before I’m maxing out. The technique i use is not in like glazing in oil paint, layering greens and red etc to create “skin tone” i find this style much more luminous than solid color blocking. Anyway i feel weird, going back to my desired art making feels a lot like so many things after Atticus, trying to reconcile the “old me” with the “new me” —you get quotation marks here because man, it’s just still me right? This new body of work is about this reconcile, this journeying.

WIP...Christmas cards floreali 🌸
Exited about my new idea, barbed wire rose necklace, this is a bit of an experiment. Unsure if the clasp idéa will work as planed and the necklace be comfortable to wear, the unsertanty makes me extra exited
