Inktober Days 1-3

Inktober 2017 is here! I might be a bit too busy for full on illustrations each day, but quick sketches are still fun! The prompts from the last three days were: Swift, Divided, & Poison.

If you want to see what I come-up with on a daily basis, try following me on Instagram!

#ProjectWhimsy

Through my own self exploration, I have realized it was the small, seemingly inconsequential things that always made my day special.  I realized there was a reason places like Disneyland and books like Harry Potter have done so well. They add magic to people’s seemingly “ordinary” lives. They allow people to feel like a child again; give people permission to dream with reckless abandon. Miracles can happen when a person finds their place of happiness, and big or small, they will pass these feelings on because they are far too glorious to be selfishly bottle-up.

#ProjectWhimsy is my way of trying to pass on these feelings day-to-day. I want to encourage everyone to perform those random acts of kindness, plant flowers someplace unexpected, or paint your garden fence a fanciful color. I implore you to go out into your community and start putting faces to those “strangers” you are trying to help. Go put smiles on their faces and make them feel like they have experienced something magical. Learn to care about your neighbor, and make it your mission to fill their day with light and love. Life is too short to be serious. Life needs to be filled with a touch of whimsy.

Introductions

When I was three years old, I told my parents I wanted to be an artist. 24 years later, I still couldn’t shake that dream, so here I am!

Although art has always been my passion, I detoured a bit. First, I went to Scottsdale Community College and graduated with an Associates in Fine Art. This sounds like it’s on-track, but I mainly studied dance while there! Then I went to Arizona State University and graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Sustainability with a minor in Landscape Architecture. I even detoured farther out of my way by getting a job in the finance industry for several years. After feeling like my soul was slowly being crushed by Corporate America, I decided to take a risk and get back to my roots.

I have a unquenchable thirst for knowledge, and I use everything I read, see, and experience to draw inspiration from. My creative hiatus has forced me to reevaluate my artistic vision. It’s been a process, but I’m getting there, and I can’t wait to show everyone who I really am. It’s finally time to correct my course, and continue my journey toward becoming an artist.
