There have been many monochrome mermaids on my blog. No more.

This month I’ve been going to life drawing sessions with a few artfriends/favebabes and it has been just swell. Here are a couple of the arts I did.

"Beauty shouldn’t be about changing yourself to achieve an ideal or be more socially acceptable. Real beauty, the interesting, truly pleasing kind, is about honoring the beauty within you and without you. It’s about knowing that someone else’s definition of pretty has no hold over you. When you know that, your self-esteem does improve, no surgery or botox or cosmetics required."~ Golda Poretsky
I did this painting to illustrate the previous quote as part of a project to spread positive body image to young girls in China. This is a great project headed by Sophie - you should message her if you’d like to know more about it!

Illustration is super great but not a financially viable career option for me at the moment. I make cakes at a cute cafe 4 cash. I drew them this blackboard recently.

It’s taken me a while to finish this but here you go!
I’m planning on getting this printed as a poster - let me know if you’d be interested.

Peace out!
