"Reading Days"

I've been on a mini break from school. Its our fall break aka "reading days" and I really didn't do anything besides homework. I saw my brother and sister so that was good. We went and saw Where the Wild Things Are. Didnt see any friends (sad). Got some time to myself though so that was good. I think i needed a mental break. Anyways, been sketchin' and stuff so i'll probably upload some stuff soon. I was just playin' around and made this little thing for fun. Need to get better with type and stuff. Not much of a success but at least there was an attempt i suppose:)

Until next time, a bit of wisdom to share:

#1 Surround yourself with people that you can learn something new from every day. Its refreshing, beautiful, and inspirational. It pushes you to be a better you.

#2 Dont take your dreams to the grave. If you feel like theres something you should be doing, push to accomplish it, and continue on with other dream/ goals.

This is an illustration for my most recent piece i've been working on. I think I'm finnaaally beginning to figure out what it is i like to do and how i like to do it. I've always had an understanding of the things i like and what my style is, but my execution has not always been the greatest. Recently, I've been making monoprints and i really enjoy the texture that they create. In all honestly, im not sure that i do them the best way, but just like anything else, you just try new things and learn something new every time. I wasnt sure how people would respond to this, but peoples reactions have been nice and its definitely been encouraging. In the words of Dora from Finding Nemo: "Just keep swimming." Yeaaa, always push on.
