Hello, dear friends!

Here is a new project i’ve come up with and find it quite amusing + helpful.

We all know that people like to copy other people works.
It can be quite helpful while developing one’s skills and it’s also fun to try and imitate the work of the artist you like.

At the same time, more often than it could be, people either forget or deliberately exclude the source of their inspiration/imitation from capture. They simply don’t mention the author of the original piece. In this way blocking their own creative energy that should flow and spread instead of being preserved in a make-believe “eureka! i came up with this art/idea all by myself” kind of block.

Why people do it? Well, i can think of a couple of reasons, but those are not important.
What important is to support authors/illustrators, give them credit and also give credit to yourself and your efforts by sharing with others the source of your inspiration.

There is nothing to hide, be ashamed of or boast about, it’s just fair and honest way to copy other people works while learning or just for fun. .

I did 5 sketches imitating styles of 5 illustrators, who have developed their unique approach and easily recognizable characters/ techniques.

These illustrators are quite known, here, on Instagram, and outside as well, and I wonder if you can guess who they are.

The first person who guesses all 5 illustrators correctly will get a little present from me.
Although, the main idea is to raise this question and to make sure that imitating and copying another person’s work is ok and can be fun if it is done honestly, openly and respectfully.
.
.
p.s. If you wish, you can use #creatorimitator hashtag and try imitate the work of an artist you find interesting or appealing.

I will follow the hashtag and write a comment under such fair imitation to support the idea.

Thank you for your attention. 🙏🏻🤗

Edith is the most cheerful and restless little creature i’ve ever met, yet, even such joyful and energetic “perpetuum mobile” as herself, sometimes has the blues.

You know how she is extreme in everything, everything she does, including being sad.

In those hours, she becomes my personal pocket-size “el Niño”- a gloomy, impossible to distract or cheer up.. and there is nothing I can do but to hide somewhere and wait when it passes.

Having blues, Edith usually keeps very much to herself, doesn’t talk to anyone and listen to sad music all day long, all curled up in the middle of a headphone cushion.

Usually indifferent to all sorts of music, especially, my singing, in times of sadness, she fancies Bach a lot.
You go figure this Edith girl!

When Edith doesn’t boss around, munch on the last cupcake or sniff around pretending to be a puppy, she loves to play “Princesses”.
Before I met Edith I used to play Princesses and quite often got to be one.
But with Edith, there never can be two princesses.
Me, I always get to play Prince Charming and save her from different monsters she invents herself as well.

Yet, this is the only time when you can see Edith does have manners all right, for she takes the game super seriously.
In fact, she takes seriously everything, even when making mess or fooling around, you can see she is a-a-all there.

Connection among all the members of a family is so equally important to all - adults, youngsters...
This time of the year, when cold winds are blowing and heavy grey clouds are occupying the sky, there is nothing better than to turn your eyes, soul and energy in the very midst of own family; to spend time together, hear all the well-known and dearly-loved stories from grandparents, share a good meal together and just spend some quality slow time within your tribe. .

peg dolls are my new hobby, love, obsession and possible reason to think of opening a etsy shop, maybe.. I wonder, would you be interested in me making some peg dolls and sharing their stories here?

Every day Edith finds new way to produce noise!
Since she wakes up, everything she does, this way or another, ends up being super loud.

Once, i suggested that one could never have guessed such a tiny pixie can be the cause of such bedlam.

She didn’t reply anything in her usual manner, because at that very moment she was blowing into trumpet with all her might and simply didn’t hear my words.
Edith is not the most attentive listener.

It doesn’t matter if you search East or West, North of South; you may even take a long rope, put it around your waist and hop off the end of the world and into the unknown, you will not find another girl as crazy for cupcakes, candies, lollipops, chocolates and caramelized apples, as Edith. .

And there is more to that: Edith, as it turned out, has no knowledge of the verb “to share”. No knowledge at all.

I tried to explain it to her like my mother explained it to me: “To share, - I said, - means to cut the last cupcake that is left by half and give it to someone”.
- To whom? - asked Edith.
- To anyone. To me, for example.

She looked at me for a moment, then looked at the last cupcake, than back at me, than back at the cupcake.. and before i could say or do anything, she made this growling sound and jumped on the top of the cupcake taking one huge bite after another until it was all gone. - Yes, - she said dreamily, looking at me over her big belly, - I like this word “share”. - she licked the chocolate off her fingers and toes and added with a wide smile: - Edith will always share with Edith.
.
She’s very hard to teach anything, especially good manners.

• late night school project •

it has been over 20 years since i did anything for school and yet tonight, when kiddo announced he had forgotten about tomorrow’s school fair, i had to start all over again; in a long forgotten “last minute” mode. 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
1,5 hour later 7 postcards are ready.

Looking at them made me think: leaving kiddo with empty hands tomorrow, could have been a good opportunity to teach him a lesson that if you forget something or ask someone to help you last minute, you get to go just like that and face the consequences.

Maybe, it would teach him responsibility and that all we do (or do not) results in something and this something may taste bitter. .

However, be it right or wrong, I decided to jump in and help him out, hoping in this way to give him another lesson instead, that if you ask for help, it may come and that in a family everyone must stand by each other.
.
Of course, it’s not in my power to foresee the future, our actions will effect our children this way or another. I may have done wrong. But for some reason, it feels so good and i smile with my heart.
I love this feeling and trust it.
.

Do you trust your heart? .
