“You tried to change didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake. But even when sleeping you could feel him traveling away from you in his dreams. So what did you want to do love, split his head open? You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying and strange and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.” — Warsan Shire .

I was on and off between adding some color and I did and that turned out a mess so honestly??? now i’m just over it 🙃🙃🙃 thank you to those who offered their input and have been following my slow progress over the past month. inspired by my dreams of the springtime, if it ever wants to show up. .

“ i don’t know when the word “beautiful” began to sound like “painful” to me. Perhaps it was when the first person who called me the word treated it like it was part curse part currency. Thought it would make me open to him like a street market opens to an impatient crowd in the soft foggy morning. We teach girls how embodying this hollow word is the only thing worth being. We tell them through fairness creams, through wrinkle creams that they are disposable when they start ageing. We inform them through television shows and advertisements there is nothing better than this skin deep validation. But we neglect to mention how even the most “beautiful” of us is cursed, as this is part of time’s cruel terms and conditions. Tell me how we can teach an entire world that the word “beautiful” is not a thing to become slave to. Tell me how we teach a planet where beauty has become currency that soft hearts and intelligent minds are things of far greater value.” — Nikita Gill, The Beauty Paradox

Rest In Peace to all the fallen micron pens that gave their lives to make this doodle gone haywire. One like = one prayer 🙏 Was listening to this entire album on repeat every time I got the chance to work on this 😭❤️

Based off of a photo of the lovely @hillaryfebrillet 💕 I haven’t painted a portrait in a ridiculously long time so I’m very much rusty with using a paintbrush. I feel like everything I do is ugly, unworthy, not worth sharing with the world. I’ve felt this way only with my art but with many aspects of my life as well. Even if it’s ugly or not wrapped in a pretty package, maybe it’s still worth creating, worth living the flawed experience in spite of it all. .
