Winnie wanted to draw “warrior, sorceress and assassin ladies” with me in magic marker. We have clockwise a #frazetta style priestess or sorceress of some kind I did, the pirate girl from #zackstorm shooting her lasers with a skull and crossbones, a mermaid that’s “all fish except the face and eats bad guys” and an assassin lady with two swords. #dadlife #illustrationpractice #fantasyart #drawwithyourkids
15 and 16/100 - Pistachio and Peanut 🥜 I think I'll stick to sketching right now. Even though I did really want to make these into an entry for the @theydrawandcook design challenge //notsponsored. I am not capable of that right now I think 🤔
I am having a hard time right now 🤷 I have the week off and I knew I needed time for myself, so these were my expectations: Getting up without an alarm (still before 9 probably), doing at least an hour of yoga a day, drawing when I feel like it (A LOT), meditating whenever I feel overwhelmed, going for long walks in the sunshine, lots of cooking, basically no social media (except for maybe 30min to post in the evening), reading, journaling, just taking time off and reflecting, finding answers 🤗
This is what's happening right now: Sleeping in till almost 12 every day because I don't feel rested (coughing blocked nose), missing a deadline for uni (the only one this week!), not doing yoga because it's too exhausting, not drawing/reading/journaling/cooking much because I have a headache and can't concentrate for long, living on the couch all day not knowing what to do, not able to meditate because I am constantly sneezing/ blowing my nose 🤧, so I end up on social media, watching random sh*** or sleeping. I do still manage to go outside for a little bit ... laying in the grass and falling asleep with the sun in my face 🥰
It's kind of ironic how the body just takes what it needs once you push it too far 🤷🏽♀️ I want to accept it, but it's hard to feel helpless. It's hard to not be able to calm my mind and it's even harder that there just seem to be more and more questions 😣
What question do you constantly ask yourself 😇
If you made it this far: Thank you for reading ❤️

Can you spot the fish and sea turtle in this sea of trash Illustration in honor of Earth Day coming up. When I was growing up, one of the images that stuck with me the most was a sea turtle tangled in the plastic rings that held soda cans together. We see a lot less of those plastic rings nowadays but tons and tons of plastic are still being tossed into the ocean every year. As the weather warms up and we head off to the beach, let’s be conscious of what we are leaving behind. 🐠🐟🌏
Today is a good day to clean up your work space/home! Having a clean space helps me think more clearly. I even find that I am not easily annoyed by things that typically would bug me. Anyone else feel this way 🧡Finish this sentence! Today is a good day to: __________.
Today is a good day to step outside and get some fresh air! Being cooped up inside in the office for too long can drive me crazy! I always need to step outside to clear my head and seeing greenery always keeps me calm 🌳💚
Been in a little bit of a creative rut lately. I thought of this short but effective phrase that helps me refocus instead of letting my mind wander! Today is a good day to: be kind to yourself! This reminds me that running out of ideas for illustrations doesn’t mean I’m a “bad artist”. It just means I need to find inspiration elsewhere ❤️ Some days we find more inspiration than others and that’s totally okay. Finish the sentence! Today is a good day to: ____________.
