Why Creative People Probably Don’t Need To Go to College (Part 1)

Check out My Most Recent Post on My New Makeup Blog

This post comes from a very personal place. I want to be clear that by college I mean traditional 4+ year schools. I don’t say these things lightly. Everything here is my own personal opinion and my opinions are based on  my own personal experiences with college. I have been an artist since I was a child. I loved to draw, paint, memorize ALL the colors in the jumbo box of Crayola Crayons. I tried to sew, cook, and make dandelion necklaces. On rainy days I would take the clay that formed on the hill beside my grandpa’s house and make little bowls( tear, good memories) MY point is that making something out of nothing was easy for me. My general experience with artists/creative people is that most of us are like this. We don’t NEED anyone to teach us how to be creative or how to make things. It’s…

The Re-Work: Redesigning My Blog

Doesn’t it seem like a hassle when you have to go back and update something. I mean ANYTHING. Like old numbers in your phone, or cleaning out emails, or ahem…a blog. Yes, I’m about to begin the long task of reorganizing my blog. I love the way it looks, but I have so many posts that now the archive on the right hand side looks messy to me. I just want a nice clean look. Like an art blog should be! I don’t think it will be anything too dramatic, because like I said before, I really like the look It already has. I might try to redo the header as well. Not really sure yet, but I do know that I will be changing the pages around so we’ll see how it turns out. I don’t really want to get rid of all my old content. I just want to make everything look more compressed and sort everything into the right categories.

Why the Delay

All I can say is sorry. I know that I decided to draw one picture a day but life has gotten very hectic and I just haven’t had any time this past week. I will resume when I can.

P.S-The even scarier part is that I thought I posted this yesterday….it really shows what place i’m in lol

Egyptian Woman

Egyptian Woman

I’ve really been into egyptian art, headdresses and hieroglyphics. I wanted to draw a woman with an exaggerated headdress. I’ll post when I get her colored in later. Anyway, hope everyone’s week has gotten off to a great start!

good pics for port 020

I love blogging. But ever since I started this blog I have wondered how I can combine all my interests into one blog, in a way that is still cohesive. Well finally I realized that I can’t. So I made another one! It is my dream to be an artist professionally. I’ve finally decided to do something about it. I’m going to do freelance work while I’m still in school. Why wait right??? One problem that I had with this blog is that I always feel like some of the things I wanted to share are too personal or off topic of the overall theme of my blog. This blog was meant to be a creative outlet for me. That’s why I always post about art or food or anything inspirational that comes to mind. But as I get older I realize that I also like to express myself creatively in other ways. Makeup,nails, hair and fashion are becoming more important to me. I want to express myself in the way I look and dress. That being said, I’m not really sure what my “style” is. But I want to learn. I,m going to focus THIS blog more on my art and I’ll still  show some things that inspire me. So it will still be personal, but in a different way.
