Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. ๐ŸŽ„
.
As the year begins to come to an end, I'm reflecting on all that I've done and tried to accomplish and one common theme throughout this year was the heart of gratitude. Not going to lie, I complained a lot. I was constantly expressing my dissatisfaction over things I didn't have.
.
The other day I watched an interview with @wendyslookbook and I don't know why I didn't know about this, but she grew up in foster care. I knew she had a hard life and that's why she has such a big heart for being a juvenile justice advocate. She said something that really struck me. When she was going to school, she didn't have any money so she picked food out of the garbage. Till this day, she's super grateful of where she is in life and is genuinely thankful for all her followers. I met her in person once and she was the only blogger that was sincerely invested in each conversation. I guess what I'm really trying to say is that I hope I don't ever let my selfishness ever blind me from spreading love and kindness. #merrychristmas

Being in the shadows isn't so bad when you're surrounded by so much beauty โœจ #descansogardens #enchantedgarden

Day 7 (The Day) #childhoodweek ๐Ÿฏ
.
There wasn't just one day that was memorable during my childhood. There were 2 days and both of them changed my life forever. When my 2 brothers came into this world, I was no longer a single child. I became the oldest sister who would take responsibility over them. As I was drawing this, I was getting a bit emotional. My brothers mean the world to me and although we fight and bicker about the dumbest things, I will always love them so much. To me, they would always be my baby brothers.
.
In this illustration, I wanted to depict their personalities a bit and I drew us as our Chinese zodiac signs. Jackie ๐Ÿ‡ loves to eat so here he is as a rabbit munching on all those carrots. Jason was such a crybaby when he was little ๐Ÿ‰ and was seriously the cutest because of his big head and little body. I ๐Ÿฏwas constantly lurking behind my brothers stealing their food.
.
Anyway, just wanted to thank @beatrice.blue for this awesome #artchallenge! It was so much fun and I look forward to the challenge in the Spring!

[SOUND ON] Day 6 (3 Future Dresses) of #childhoodweek with @beatrice.blue
.
From a very young age, I've always wanted to be in fashion. It wasn't until senior year of college that I discovered costume designing. I loved the idea that you can tell a story through clothing and it's seriously been a dream of mine for so long. I hope that one day in the near future, I'll attain that dream. Oh and of course, own a brand that designs beautiful gowns for special occasions. #childhoodweek2017
.
Sorry for a mediocre post. I have an awful headache, but I still want to be able to finish this #artchallenge. I promise something better for tomorrow!

Not your typical blogger-flower-flatlay-whatever shot, in collaboration with @thebouqsco, a company that's dedicated in delivering eco-friendly, farm-fresh flowers. ๐Ÿ’
.
I've honestly been really selective about my brand collaborations because I feel like it's gotta be something that I feel is worth sharing. The great thing about this company is that the flowers are cut to order, so the stems aren't wasted like other mass production flower markets. They also support your local florists and I definitely believe in supporting smaller and local businesses. Also, receive 20% off with code: XOMAGGIE
.
I wanted to really capture the moodiness of still life paintings, but of course with my blue tone edits. I honestly want all my photos to be works of art. What do you think?

[SOUND ON] Day 5 (Storm) of #childhoodweek #artchallenge โ›ˆ
.
To be honest, this was really hard to tackle. Everyone has their story to tell and it's not always easy sharing it through Social Media, but I do hope this reaches your heart if you're going through a storm in your life. I remember a time when I had no strength to pray or any faith to believe. It was really hard. But I'm always encouraged to know that no matter how frail my voice gets, it will always be heard. #inspiremyinstagram #childhoodweek2017

What are your thoughts about fine art photography? I'm on a quest to turn my photos to resemble paintings so thus begins the many hours of editing on one photo. Check out my before and after image of my new edits of coloring. It's not quite where I want it to be, but baby steps right? I've been obsessed with #fineartphotography and I've also discovered so many cool photography accounts where they literally look like pages out of a children's book. Also, so sorry guys. I've been posting so much these days. Bleh! After the art challenge, it's definitely going to calm down. Lol. Bare with me. 3 more days! #inspiremyinstagram

#childhoodweek #artchallenge Day 4 (Treasure): Another day, another art challenge. Today's topic is treasure and growing up, my family always had dogs. My parents got Alex, a #Rottweiler shortly after I was born and boy was he protective. He was a bit chubby, but I loved him so much. I was so sad when he passed away. After him, we kept naming all our big dogs Alex. Alex II passed away early because of kidney stones. Alex III is currently living happily with PB and my brothers. #foreveradogperson
.
Anyway, tomorrow's topic is Storm. Wonder what I would be drawing? Should I continue drawing illustrations as if they were part of a children's book? #dogsofig

#childhoodweek #artchallenge Day 3 (secrets): Only my close friends know about this, but I'm pretty traumatized by #jurassicpark so I have reoccurring nightmares since I was young about getting chased by dinosaurs. Yes, unfortunately, I still get them.
.
I actually decided to challenge myself a bit and tried to draw something as if it's out of a children's book instead of my usual stuff. I guess, my hope is to find a compromise with the dinosaur so it would stop chasing me and I thought in an idealistic children's world, this is what it would look like. Lol. What do you guys think?

Congratulations Eva and David! Such a beautiful wedding. ๐Ÿ™Œ So excited for your next chapter in life and welcome to the married couples club! #forevadavid

#childhoodweek #artchallenge Day 2 (music): I still remember, the very first instrument that I wanted to play was the guqing because I saw a cool kungfu drama and wanted to be just like the actress. She played the most beautiful intro and then it turned into a really cool dancing sword fight in the woods. So I asked my dad for a guqing for Christmas and guess what he got me instead? An electric guitar. Lol. Now, I play a little bit of piano, guitar and violin. Kinda wish my family pushed me to practice more. What about you guys? Do you play any instruments? #inspiremyinstagram #childhoodweek2017

I'm participating in #childhoodweek #artchallenge and Day 1 is cartoons/movies! Growing up, #sailormoon was my go-to cartoon right after school. I remember being completely obsessed with the series and believe it or not, this cartoon is what inspired me to draw. My first sketchbook contained so many drawings of #princessserenity and the other characters. What was your favorite cartoon growing up?
.
On a different note, today, while joking around with Daniel of how one of my artworks got stolen before, I googled my #calvinandhobbes stuff and lo and behold, after deleting all of them from my social media channels, people still found a way to steal them and try to make a profit my art. The second picture contain my original prints and the 3rd/4th are googled images of other companies selling my artwork. Pretty annoying, but on the bright side, there's a demand for it. Haha. One day, I'll have my own art store. ๐Ÿ™„
