hello dear readers! you all are so kind to stick around. many hugs to all of you!
i have come up with a new theme to ensure i post more often on this blog (: here is post number 1 of AODT special– a talk/musings/ramblings/daydreams section on this blog that i will at the very least, update once a month. i will feature an artwork (or two.. or ten??) in this section and a short write-up on its inspiration and coming-into-being and other such things.
here is artwork number 1:
it is something i did for fun one day while assignments piled up all around me! I LIVE ON THE EDGE
when you think ‘happy’ what do you think of? i think of a day of sunshine, a little conversation, and pie. i haven’t tried all the pies in the world, but i have tried the wonder that is lemon meringue pie, and i don’t even have the vocabulary to accurately describe how high-ranking its position is in the kingdom of mystical dessert heaven.
lemon meringue pie and its bakers and recipe-writers should be appreciated. if you know one, thank him/her today!
back to the artwork- it is digitally drawn on Adobe Photoshop with the help of a drawing tablet (i don’t have my own tablet, and i’m hoping to get one next year! i have to find a way to earn the money first)! the illustration style i’m pursuing in this one is a floaty and almost uneven stylistic look, with subdued colours, and what i would like to call a daydreamy handwritten type. it reminds me of lazy sleep-in mornings with music. (:
what do you think of this kind of illustration? i like it but i find it is common- many illustrators use this look and feel. i’m still trying to find a strong style!
p.s. i really appreciate comments and feedback and wise words because you all brighten my day!! thank you for leaving a note, and thank you to all those who have previously left things for me to read. <3
