Late night drawing session: Self love and self happiness. It’s a subject I’ve been constantly trying to strive for within myself for a long time. I’ve been re-listening to of Monster and Men, specifically their song “King and Lionheart” with me trying to love myself more and make myself happy and this drawing is what came out. Since moving to NY about 4 years ago a lot has happened and there were many times where I felt alone and it’s hard to always be a strong person with every situation. Slowly but surely I never gave up and although I break down a lot, I always push to move forward. It’s not where I want to be in life, but looking back I’ve come a long way in many aspects of my life. I’m always a harsh critique to myself and sometimes people also pull you down, but I need to remember this is my own journey and no one else’s and that I need to love and be happy with myself more. Life isn’t always what you want it to be at that moment whether it’s your career, money, or love... but I need to stay positive that it can and it will be. So my drawing is a representation of vines/branches to show the many parts of life and the people that have came into my life to help me continue to grow. I told myself add color for the next post, but I always enjoy black and white drawings that I do... maybe next time. ✨

2017 had many ups and downs as any other year. Many different obstacles that was not expected, but were things that I needed to deal with to become a better person. This year was full of new opportunities whether it’s meeting new people or experiencing new things. One thing that still remains constant are the amazing friends and family that I have. I am so lucky and thankful to have them in my life and to have them be there for me when I was at my lowest or for them to push me forward. Nonetheless, it’s been an amazing year full of learning, growth, and love. I look forward to what 2018 brings! ✨

Maybe it’s because my sisters keep posting pics so I see them everywhere, but I swear it’s my last time posting Christmas photos! Lol! Whenever I’m back home I look forward to spending time with my family. They are one of the silliest and funniest people I know. My voice is always gone from laughing so much whenever I’m back home. They’re my best friends and I miss them every single day when I’m not with them. ✨

Since I moved to NY 4 years ago, I have kept in touch as well as made new friends that have become my family. I am so thankful and lucky to have them all in my life. It’s never a dull moment when I’m with them. Can’t wait for many many more years of this 💗

Been almost a year since I’ve last drawn something, but lately I’ve been focusing on myself more and trying to get back to what I use to enjoy doing.I have so many creative ideas, but I get to where I just want to not think anymore sometimes. It’s bad, but I’m trying to get out of that. Anyways, I was highly inspired by a song I’ve been having on repeat because I’ll be seeing them in 2 weeks- 🎶in your wake🎶 by Illenium & Said the Sky. It has such an ethereal feeling even though it’s edm and that’s what makes me love this song. It’s been a long time since I’ve added color to anything I draw and you can clearly see I was being super lazy and impatient with my water coloring. Hopefully next time I’ll give more time to my drawing & not just use one brush to do everything LOL! ✨
