06 NO MORE EXCUSES//


1. Loot from illustration fest
2. this week's lazy journal layout
3. wedding card//working on it

I haven't completely removed the negativity and I was disappointed with myself for being so unproductive last week which I basically just absorb a few seasons of The Simpsons. However, I wasn't totally unproductive as I managed to packed up my room and made some changes. Every time my room is all packed up, I feel amazing after that.

Also, I have been running! Usually when I plan to start running, somehow I end up hating it after 2 runs. Recently I have had a few runs and I feel like doing more every day! Other than building my stamina for the end of the year trip ( *_________* ), it helps me stop procrastinating a little more each time I go for a run.

I am actually extremely proud of TODAY! I would prefer to run when there is sunlight as the route I usually have the runs are dark and quiet at night. BUT today I actually got home after 8pm. Even after I sat down in front of my computer playing tetris and started my youtube videos, I got my ass off and was like NO EXCUSES. In my head I was like, "I'm tired, it's dark out, the bus took so long to bring me home BUT GET OUT OF THE HOUSE AND RUN."

so I did. & I feel so much better.

05 NEGATIVITY//GOAWAAAY!!!

so I went to the museum for my sister's birthday! 


The last exhibition we went was a Dreamworks exhibition 2 years ago. It was like I was in disneyland but this time round not so much. I still enjoyed it though, partially the emotion I got from the artwork is caused by my personal negativity.

A couple of things happened lately and its been putting me down. All I'm trying to do right now is move forward but its just so bloody hard cause its so bloody personal and I hate that I put in so much effort in things like this when no one else gives a shit. somehow I keep making myself move forward, do work, watch Casey Neistat and just GO GO GO GO.

Even though nothing's really happening much but everything made me think a lot. Initially I didn't want to care cause it doesn't seems like anyone else is. but I realise how I'm still human but then I ended up concluding that I can care, just don't stop doing, don't stop moving forward and just slowly let the anger and negative emotions go.

It was because of all these minor incidents, it piled and rolled into a ball which made me reaaally negative and it affected other things like confidence and motivation. However, I have to keep reminding myself, I took so long to get back on my feet and had this motivation to keep going and keep doing and I'm not going to let things like this, things that people don't give a damn about, to put me down.

It is easier said than done but I'm working on it. I need to remind myself how strong I'm and thankful for everyone that actually care about my pitiful life.

I dont want to end off being all emotional and shit so

To be honest, I WAS verrry happy with it cause I see progression in my digital art style, but after I looking at it for so long, I feel I can still improved and I'm still finding out. I would love to post some inspirations but I'm not at home & I need to link and stuff sooo ahhh. Bye.

03 START OVER//

I am adjusting my body clock back and forth so most of the nights I'm just exhausted so i barely did anything. It was mainly mindless sketches other than these two which Im really happy about.

So its the beginning of the month & the first thing I usually spurge on is art supplies//materials.
so DAISO HAUL AGAIN

Panda Stickers// should have gotten 2 :<
Origami Papers// this month's haul is so gorgeous! I love the mountain designs &goldfish designs
Washi Tapes// I already have so many but i can't resist
Envelope// not really my colour but its still pretty

I found this book at the library and I fell in love with it. It has a similar concept/style of another book, Steal Like An Artist, which shows knowledge in a very creative way (compared to textbooks).


It isn't my usual style of illustration that I like but JUST LOOK AT IT. anyway I bought it.

02 SLOW&STEADY//

The weekend has passed and I'm back in my crib! Starting with a daiso haul; 
Other than the swatches & gel pens, my haul consisted of the cat message card, travel memo pads, mickey mouse washi tape, two packets of origami paper, cat stickers (its an extra :3).

clean simple digital sketches

I was doing them in the middle of the night on sunday to end the week. Usually the weekends I won't be around therefore I don't get to do any digital art till I get home. hope to try something new soon!

Even though I wasn't at my own work space for the last 5 days, my boyfriend made a space for me which I was really grateful for. Although it isn't as big as mine (I had things falling all over the place), I did manage to get some work done, a few pages of sketching & this week's new journal layout.

sketches I did in the weekends


My motivation is still thriving, been doing daily sketches which I'm very happy about. Unfortunately the progression feels a tad slow. Probably because I'm usually on the go so I need to figure out how to get things done, but other than that, I feel really great.

ending off with

01 HELLO//

Hello, I have kept this blog empty for so long and I finally decided to start again. Lately I have been doing work here and there and I really want to start sharing, even though nobody is reading.

I'm actually having a pretty good start; got back to digital art, regular posting on instagram, starting up deviant art, and created a facebook page. I have no idea where all this is going but I will just keep going.

The works I have been posting on the platforms has been very finalisd? so I just wanted to start a space where I can put down more causal drawings & some thought processes. I CAN'T WAIT.

I know noboday is around but
