Happy 2015 You Guys!

23 Jan

Hello world!

A little late, but Happy 2015 to you, all! I have been a hermit, I know- but I have working really hard to get my crap together, leave doubts behind, and just create (art, crafts, write, read…). I have been swimming in a sea of projects to just start generating new and fresher ideas.

After a long literary dry-spell I finally picked up a book that is blowing me off my freaking feet. Thank you Old Man Geek for lining up at SDCC last year to get me Beautiful You. This book, you guys, OMG! Beautiful You by Chuck Palahniuk is simply amazing. I have most of his book and I still have not finished most because I am always stunned by the beautifully written prose– the descriptions in all of his books are more visually effective than a movie’s. Thank you, Chuck Palahniuk for bringing back to me the joy of reading with yet another one of your magnificent works.

For a while I have been drowning with doubts about my writing, my art… all of it. And now I decided: you know what? I miss doing what I love and why am I getting so anxious about if it is something I need to do to survive. Like air: I need art, books, and pens in my life– it is as needed as water, the ways I can express myself without awkwardness, the way I charge my batteries. So I decided: To hell with the doubts and fears, I am doing what I love. And let me tell you, I have been very happy and inspired lately, I am super proud of the things I have created so far this year and very excited to work on those I have planned. I still need a job, granted, but I am looking– wish me luck! ❤ Positive vibes all around ❤

So yeah… expect to see more of my art, writings, reviews, and crafts. Yes, I do plan on catching you all up to what has happened while I have been a tad MIA.

See you soon, my lovelies. Geek OUT! ❤

Life, Work… Shenanigans!

20 Mar

Hello World!

I have been writing, drawing, working, and going over things in my head to make this blog something solid– yet, here I am, with exactly what I started with.

So in the midst of a new rejection letter I decided to celebrate today: what if I just stop worrying so much about how things should and will be, why not just do? Why should I be worrying about things that are absolutely out of my grasp? Right?… I decided to keep doing my best to be someone in life, whatever that means and whoever that will be, and just enjoy the time I have in my hands and make the best use of it. *smiley face* It is harder than it should, since school conditioned me to feel as if there is something approaching the corner that I could never be ready enough for.

But enough about that. Since I don’t know how I can un-broaden everything I love and plan to talk about, why don’t I give you, guys, a glimpse of who I am and what lies inside this TARDIS brain of mine. I want to share with you the things I like and am passionate about, and, hopefully, hear what you like– your likes, suggestions on new things to try (keep it clean, guys! mind out of the gutter :p), new materials to read, DIY projects, whatever… So, here it goes… I dunno if I should make it a list or just a new paragraph.

I love art, as I believe you might have seen– from classics to cartoons; I love seeing artists draw known art/characters in their own style (you can check previous posts for preview). Umm… My passions are reading and writing and falling in love with fictional characters and worlds; my genre of preference is Fiction- Sci-Fi/Fantasy (which is my favorite genre to write as well), manga, comics/graphic novels (Sandman FTW!). I need drawing and coloring in my life, and love doing crafty things from origami to sculpting and sewing. I love cartoons and anime, I think I have seen over 40 animes (not sure if I should be ashamed). I won’t even go into movies and shows, let’s just say it is all within the same genre everyone would call geeky/nerdy. I am obsessed with unicorns, dragons, faeries and all sorts of mythical creatures and cute animals, hearts, stars, wings, rainbows, keys…

As almost every other person I like shopping, and collecting things I like, too. I love geeky handmade jewelry, which you will see me post about (shout-out to small businesses!), and clothing as well– though I am not a fan of clothes shopping. I love rambling about things I read and finding people to talk about them with.

So this is all that my world entails, many worlds, likes, and passions to explore.

The question is, what would you like to see? I have gotten messages to share my art, to share my collections… What do you, guys, like?

Do you like art? Stay tuned, I will be hosting giveaway from my Spooksieboo prints collection soon!! Everyone needs beautiful art in their life… as well as a tad of creepiness ❤
