Candy On My Mind Wall Art + Process

A couple of months ago I was commissioned by Andie of Andies Candies to create an original wall art illustration for her new candy store in Nigeria. She wanted a thought bubble filled with candy with the words "Candy On My Mind" so that whoever sat under it would look like he/she is thinking of candy (definitely a fun idea for pictures!).

Remember Your Ideas With This DIY Idea Notebook!

Have you ever had The Most Brilliant, Amazing, Incredible Idea and you told yourself that you will remember it forever...only to forget about it moments later?

If there's one habit I would recommend to every creative out there (or anybody, really) it would be to always write down your ideas! You never know when inspiration will strike and you'll want to be ready when it does!

While phones and virtual sticky notes are good places to store ideas, I always make it a point to transfer them to a notebook every once in a while so they don't become scattered and forgotten beneath all my other files. If you're like me and still rely on good ol' pen and paper, then this super affordable and customizable DIY Idea Notebook is for you!

New Profile Picture!

"Please...enough love"

An accurate portrayal of my relationship with my cat. Also, new profile picture! :D

This started out as a fun little doodle I made while waiting for an animation to render (watch out for that one as well!).

Sketchbook Saturdays #3

Sketchbook Saturdays is a blog series where I share my art and sketches for the week! I will not be putting pressure on myself to make each work perfect; my goal with this is to learn, experiment, and just keep drawing!

Hello again everyone! Here's this week's round of sketches. I tried to do some realistic studies of people for practice, but I found that I really prefer to draw in a more cute, cartoon-y style.
