08 UPS&DOWNS//THANKFUL


To get the negativity out of the way, I'm going to start with this.

Dealing with people has always been a problem for me. People come and go and I know I always have an issue with it. Dealing with it is definitely difficult but thinking that its better not to have people who treat you half-ass and be thankful for those who have been there and cared for you.

NOW the happy stuff :B

Lately, I have been focusing on health. I have been eating cleaner and running much more than I have ever done in the last 5 years or more. Drinking wise didn't go as plan but I have lots of progression which I'm happy about. It felt good to know I still have a certain level of discipline.

I had difficulty doing what I want to do and what I need to do for awhile due to the different places I stay at. Though there are limitations but I have been making plans and doing my best to make it work lately. For awhile all I have been doing is complain therefore I started making my plans according to what has happened. Not all of my plans will follow through but I evaluate and do my best to improve.

I had a rare chit chat with my mom at night and little gestures like this makes me realise how thankful I am for her. Even though she nags and has her flaws, her heart has always have the best interest for me no matter what.

Also, one of my dearest friend came back into my life and graduated lately and I'm so happy for her. She is probably one of the most positive influence I have in my life and i'm so glad she stuck around despite having our different lives.

One of the things that got me so pumped this week was, I DYED MY HAIR BLUE. It has been a dream of mine to get blue hair and to be honest, this wasn't my first time. However, this was the best results that I have had so I'm so thankful for my baby for helping me with this and loving me for who I'm.

Having ups and downs for an entire week made me realise how grateful and thankful I'm for everyone there and supporting me. It also made me realise how proud I'm of how far I have made it and continues to motivate and improve myself.

07 MINI ME//


Recently, I have been watching youtubers who does animations, therefore I randomly created a mini me! I would love to do animations on youtube but I might have other plans on mind.

Also, I created a mini boyfriend too :3

My productivity level went down in the past 2 weeks. I stopped keeping track of my money, my work, and I left my work untouched. All I'm concentrating on doing now is getting myself out of the house to work, NOT EVEN ON TIME FOR WORK. Just, out of the house so I'm actually going to work.

Well, I'm not going to discredit myself. Even though I haven't been exercising much but I did push myself to do a little here and there in the past 2 weeks. I'm so out of shape that I don't look good in my clothes anymore. THEREFORE,

MOTIVATION; GET BACK TO HAVING A NICE AND HEALTHY BODY.

I used to have a better body but It wasn't healthy at all. Being in an environment where I tried so hard to be prefect & skinny is something I do not want to go through again. Though I dislike my body now, but It does not make me want to starve myself or anything, but instead, its a good motivation for me to start being healthier.

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.
