Guilty of stripes

IMG_7748I promise that I wouldn't do such a blog post about the lack of posting but it is right in my mind so I think I am off to a good start. I've noticed that I miss the overload craft of my post and lately I feel as if I am losing my balance with blogging.  IMG_7747
To sum more of my thought I feel as If I am slowly turning into an observer rather than taking part in social networking. Could I be losing interest too? *gasp* Goodness gracious how I hope not but I did take a step down from the second life I created on the internet. The reasons why I did so was due to my lack of communication with people face to face. I was losing my ability to have plain conversations with strangers, friends or family since my head is always behind a screen or down typing on my phone.IMG_7752
And so I decided to re-evaluate my life around all of my favorite social networkings and I found it to be simple : Live my life outside of them, I want to be so busy with my life that I hardly have time to update what I am doing. I no longer want to feel like I am living my life through a screen. I want to fulfill my life by accomplishing my dreams and inspiring others to do the same while I keep balancing my passion for blogging as well. Like people say I just want to live my life to the fullest by fullest I mean do all of the things that I've been dreaming of doing. Actually living them rather than looking at them as dreams.
Here's to good balance and discipline in my life

Sea full of hearts

IMG_7970 The colors red, pink and white are the highlights of the day, they are bright, happy and contagious to feel as happy as they appear to be. I decided to use that "happy go lucky" feeling instead to illustrate. In another note it has come to my attention that my productivity in my content has been put in the back seat. My energy went from high rocket to it entering the mind state of fear. Ohh! how did that happen? Living in fear is probably one of the thing that sucks the happiness and the energy out of you in life. My fears of creativity and hesitation of posting come from comparing myself with other artists, bloggers and feeling as if I am not doing enough, that I am not the best. I rarely get this kind of feeling and that is why I am praying to overcome it right at this moment. Blogging is something that I've been passionate about since it is my outlet to showcase my illustration and I won't let these fears emerge my thoughts any longer.

"Hit em up style" Sunday Sketches

IMG_7974 Architect by day and Illustrator by yet this lover of patterns, interior design and broad buildings is also in transition of building a brand of stationary from the luxury of her home.
Ever since she was a youngster, little Gabriella knew that her heart had always been attached to fine art and the sciences of mathematics.

She wanted to use all her talents to her advantage and broke free from the stigmata that she couldn't have it all. Sure she couldn't be all but she could have it all and since she believed she could, Gabriella is living her dream life. Building houses with a wonderful team at work while balancing her stationary sleek illustration online. We know this girl never took hard work and education for granted and has all the right to live a happy lifestyle. Don't you just love her corset inspired of African tribal prints assemble with her red sole pumps Louboutin? She's on her way for New York Fashion Week with a couple of her friends.

Un ptit retour d'age

Lola and her Lollipop
I am sure everyone realize that little children and candy goes hand to hand. Life is fine for them as long they are sucking happily on their lollipops, ice cream or anything sugary for that matter...Did any of you ever finished those round giant colorful lollipops? well since I too can be guilty of wanting vanilla sandwich cookies, I thought it would be better to illustrate it instead :)...and because it's been so long since my last illustration.

It's All Love
