i'd like to start by saying that this whole situation is by no means solely about ariana grande and her well-being. several people have made this about her, and that is not the case. her name is the one being thrown on every social media headline, and i only drew this because i couldn't get her out of my head. to the families who are experiencing loss and pain to an unimaginable extent, i am so very sorry for your loss and for your suffering, and i am sending my love to you. concerts are a gathering of unity that is honestly incredible, as thousands of people believe in the same words and sing them for thousands of different reasons. last night, that unity was presented with a threat, but we shall not give in to fear; fear is what gives terrorism its core power. do not be afraid, and do not let confusion drive you to ignorance to the point where you try to point fingers to assign blame. love must win. do not let the names of those lost be forgotten and faded away behind a tally or a casualty count. those were people with stories, feelings, hopes, and dreams. please, let us take the time to send our best wishes to everyone positively involved, and let us thank those who have selflessly and tirelessly worked to aid injuries and assist those lost in manchester. be grateful, and spread love, because that is all i can ask of you.

the contest drawings are finally done! there was initially a fifth to be drawn, but due to miscommunication and being unable to get in contact with that person, i ended up drawing a self portrait instead. thank you so so much to everyone who entered, i worked hard to make sure these drawings were as accurate as possible. i hope you like them as much as i do :)

i absolutely am in love with the results of the photoshoot that melanie did for @altpress ! i have a copy of the magazine with her cover on it myself, and when these additional photos came out i knew i absolutely had to draw one of them, so i drew my personal favorite from the set! hopefully you babes like this one, i think it's my favorite realism i've done yet ✨💕

today is a very important day to me, because it is the first anniversary of the day that i made this account on instagram! when i started out on here, i made godawful edits for a few months and posted an occasional drawing, and i never expected to attain such a big audience (at least from my perspective) and receive so much unconditional love and support from so many people. this account helped me find myself in one of the darkest times of my life, and you guys helped me find lights and love. thank you all so so much, i cannot say it enough. i've met so many wonderful friends through this website, and i don't know where i would be right now without every single one of you. i hope you like this, i left out some characters due to lack of space, so not pictured are the following; cry baby's father and brother, the nurse who helped deliver cry baby, unnamed characters from the carousel mv, mr. potato head, and unnamed characters from mrs. potato head. thank you all for everything, and as always, much love. 💕

i've struggled with colorful realism for quite some time, as some of you know. making this drawing felt like a personal triumph, and i feel like i've finally conquered the colored pencil medium. i really hope you guys like this one, it's loosely based off of her post on her instagram story (with more intense coloring in the hair) and i'm personally very happy with it. this one took about three hours to make, and @littlebodybigheart is truly the one girl that can hold my attention for three hours straight 🌷💕

i'd like to start by wishing the happiest of birthdays to melanie martinez. you've come so far, and we're all so proud of you and cheering you on as you create new art for all of us to enjoy. you've touched so many hearts, mine especially, which is why i organized this collaboration with fellow artists on instagram as a tribute to you and the main cry baby album as a whole. mike, @cosmicdoodles59 , came up with the idea to create a line of dolls each representing a track off of the album, and once we assigned everyone a song, it blossomed into the collection that you see here. we decided to call it "Cry Baby Boxed Set," keeping the theme a secret from our audiences but hinting that we were working on something big, just for you. if you see this, melanie, please know that we love all you so very deeply, from thirteen artists who have been greatly inspired by you. there is so much love in the community that you've created, and let this be a token of how much we appreciate you as not only an artist, but a human being. have a happy 22nd birthday! 🌷

🌷 @lanadelrey 🌷

dare i say this, i hold lana del rey's songwriting ability and vocals over all other artists. her 1960's style and haunting visuals are so artfully done, and i have absolutely fallen in love with this woman's music. if you've never heard her material, give her a listen, because her stories to tell are tragic, beautiful and undeniably lovely.

it's been a while since i did a mel cartoon, so here's a bunny-themed drawing ! my all-time favorite photo shoot of mel's is the one with the bunny hat, so i was happy to incorporate a part of that look into this! also, as a life tidbit, things are looking up for me romantically... 🌷

let's talk about thirteen reasons why.
for those who don't know, @13reasonswhy is a show that tells the story of how a junior in high school passed away, by killing herself. the girl, hannah baker, recorded thirteen sides of tapes before the night of her death, each exploring a negative component of her past that she felt ultimately added into the reason why she would end her life. this person i've drawn, @dylan_minnette , plays clay jensen, the protagonist of the story, who is given the tapes and discovers the truth behind hannah's death. this show is heartwrenching, depressing, and an absolute work of art. i recommend it, but before you watch, please consider that the show deals with (and shows) acts of self harm, physical and verbal violence, rape, drug usage, and more extremely dark themes. use caution when you watch this show, but the message it carries is eternal. you are never truly alone, and you are genuinely loved by many. growing up is a difficult task, and the problems hannah baker faces are very real issues that kids face today, so it is no small feat if you've been through dark times like this yourself, and have made it out alive. suicide is never the correct answer. if you feel alone and dissociated with your environment and daily life, please speak with someone you know and that you trust. things can always get better. i believe in you, please stay strong. and, as always, much love.
