Instead of working on my shop I decided to draw. A few minutes in and I already felt calmer, more relaxed, more happy, no more feelings of burnout.

In the last couple of weeks I wondered if everything is too much for me, but it wasn’t illustrating that made me miserable, it was NOT making anything.

That’s good. It’s an important reminder that this is right for me. If it gives me energy instead of draining me then that’s the way to go.

I still have to somehow make this website, but at least once it’s done I can start working on my projects again, right? 😌

Feeling not well today. I’m totally overwhelmed working on my shop and I’m generally feeling quite discouraged continuing with illustration. If it wasn’t the only thing I love and I’m good at I probably wouldn’t. Making a living of it seems impossible. At the minimum it’s a long hard road full of rejection and financial insecurity and recently this has worn me out completely. I’m sure better days will come. I won’t stop.

My submission to this years @secret7s. I chose to illustrate @manics song No Surface All Feeling. Since you’re seeing this here it means it didn’t make it to their exhibition. I still really like this piece 🥀

I’m currently getting all my work I want to have in my shop ready for print. Giving some of them a little makeover.

“Nightfall” my finished piece for a commission.
This was such a great job, I could draw what I love most - landscapes and aliens! This piece is off to get printed now and I can’t wait to give it to my client.
I have to thank the lovely people of @curatorspace who held their salon and I had the chance to meet fantastic new people!
And if you’re interested in commissioning a piece as well you can email or dm me!

Today I made a frame mockup and turned my old wall and floor into a fancy room. It took me embarrassingly long but at least I didn’t have to deal with stupid code.
