When I went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, it really dawned on me how vast the ocean is and how small and insignificant a single person is. Whether it's miles and miles of open sea or a entire ecosystem of creatures we never encounter in our day to day, there is so much more magic to the world than what we are. I've had these feelings of being small before but never quite like I felt at the aquarium in front of the Open Sea exhibit.

Encounter with the sea angel.

I wanted to preserve the transparent look of jellyfish so I worked with masking fluid and left it overnight this time. I did two rounds, one for the jelly creatures and the other for the fish in the background. I didn't account for the little girl until too late so I'll change my process next time.

During my Yosemite trip, I saw a patch of grass that was glowing from the early sunlight with a cluster of purple and orange flowers. I also saw a deer 🦌. I haven't been able to stop thinking about those sights.

Today I retired my Intuos 3 from 2005 and upgraded to a a Cintiq Pro :) the difference is crazy. I work so much faster now (꒪▿꒪) #cindydraws #art #drawing #illustration #illustrationartists #photoshop #digitalart #digitalillustration #halloween #ghost #candy #cute #kawaii #workinprogress #wacom #illustrationoftheday #drawdaily #wacom #cintiq

On a night night hike through a forest filled with unusual inhabitants.

A new species of ghost have been discovered and seem to be a mix of jelly fish and frogs. OuO Jellyfrogs. Ahaha

Whenever I go visit my parents, I like to paint the view from their window. This is the 6th try and the only attempt where I feel like you can kind of tell what it is. In the 10 minutes that I did this, the sun and clouds had already moved so much ... 😖

Way more comfortable painting landscapes than fish. It was foggy this morning at @montereybayaquarium but it really cleared up by lunch time. I was worried I wouldn't be able to paint the bay.

Early morning stop in Monterey, CA before going to the Aquarium! :) 💕 I had a rough morning but the barista was super kind and helpful. I regret not being able to spend more time at this place.
