days of our lives
February is such a weird month. It's over in the blink of an eye and half that time revolves around a Hallmark holiday, heart shaped boxes of chocolates and the colour pink. It was a good month for me though because I spent a lot of time immersing myself in the work of artists' in an attempt to find my own aesthetic. I didn't really find anything original but I did spend a lot of time at my desk working towards collages and doing these small illustrations for my diary. I got a lot of headaches doing this- my boyfriend thinks it's because I am working a different part of my brain and am not used to it. It was a labor of love though and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. My next challenge is to strike a balance between school work and continue to write diary entries and make my collages. At the moment I'm feeling optimistic because I have less contact hours and don't have to spend as much time waiting around for class and commuting but I know this is my most important year yet.
*Most of the drawings are in the style of other artists- Ginette Lapalme, Brianna of teen age chariot, estherlovesyou and inés estrada. Please let me know if you recognize your work and have been left out!
