I have two works, one I'm selling for $800 (a collection of skulls and bones I've decorated) and another I'm putting up for $400 (some rocks I've done designs on).
I doubt anyone will make an offer, but it's an achievement for me.
I'll try to get some photos up here at some point, but for now, I just can't wait!

P.S. Love you guys, you're so encouraging and honestly the best!💕💕

Oh dang, hey pals,
 I just realised I've forgotten for months to actually show you my stuff - whoops! Here's a photo before I did the last two rocks. :)

If you want, I'll give you close-ups of the main skull and animal lino prints. It's a lot to put in one post, though. :)

Happy birthday, Nick!
I decided to draw you a cockapoo puppy because they're cute and I kind of just draw whatever comes to mind, so I started without a reference and had to actually figure out what I had begun drawing! Sorry for the photo as well, and also my cat stepped on it so I had to flatten it out under my maths books for half an hour before I could take a photo, and it still looks crinkled, but I tried. <3
Spoiler
I'll have to give you the actual thing at the meetup, kitty crinkles and all. But for now, just wanted to let you know you're appreciated.

Sooooo amazing. You're really talented. Thank you so much for this - very genuinely appreciated. 👊 I don't know how you do it, particularly with no initial reference.

P.S. Great choice - some would know I've been absolutely melting over puppies like this recently haha.

Thank you again!

Starting on the base of my graffiti mural! The wall is 8ft x 8ft, so it’s a decent amount to cover, but here are some pictures of my progress so far. :)
Spoiler


This is faaaar from the finished product - I’m letting this dry then doing more base over the top in brighter colours. Then on Thursday night I’m doing the final line art on top of that as performance art! Hopefully the fine spray nozzles come in time! :-/

💗 U ALL 😘

Thanks... if I can get past the tragedy of today ;-;

Incoming smol rant//

Guys, rule NUMERO UNO of artistry of any kind:
If a person is in the middle of a project, or has finished a project, and has not given you permission to even get close to their project, you stay away.

Went to work on it in period 4 and there was a GIANT MESS OF PINK AND WHITE GRAFFITI ALL OVER MY WORK IN THE VAGUE SHAPE OF A PERSON. It had dripped and was patchy and someone had completely covered my work in what looked like a two minute job of someone teaching themselves how to use spray paint. Not gonna lie, I cried a little bit. Turns out the girl who dropped out of doing it as a collaborated job with me A WEEK AGO decided she would waltz back in and try her own thing on my work.
After I told her I would do it myself and was planning something.
She tried covering up my work.
Without telling me anything.
And fucked it up completely.
I don't have pictures because I forgot my phone today.
I was so mad I couldn't think straight and I spent half an hour trying to fix it all up anyway, so you can't see the mess. Unless you look at the texture of the board, where the drips from her paint were. No, wait, my paint that she used without my permission.

The performance is tomorrow night and the plans I had for today went down the drain because I was just salvaging what I could from my background. Ran out of purple paint. Thankfully the new paints and nozzles I ordered came in, so I got to test the colours I chose and I'm happy with them. (I got a green shimmer paint, mmm yummy :3) But now the time I planned for doing the other parts of the background is gone, so I just have to work with my sad little restoration project. As long as no-one else decides to have a go on my artwork, it should be fine as is.

But I'm still very upset right now.  :'(

Sorry to hear it. There's something deeply troubling above other people stuffing around with your art. :(

Thanks, Nick. Have a picture of one of my old linos, anyway, as recompense for my ranting haha. It's not the best print I'd done but that one currently resides with my grandparents in NSW, so this is the next best :)

Hope everyone's had a good day, otherwise! <3

Tonight was so beautiful.
Our school has an art’s night of sorts every year, and so this was when I was doing my spray painting, in front of people. It was a little bit nerve-wracking but I managed to listen to the music and get in the zone, and just do my own thing. People would stand and watch me work. At one point, when I was nearly done, I hear this little voice behind me go, “wooooaaahhh!!!” I turned around and there was a little boy with glasses too big for his face standing there with his jaw dropped. He looked at me with big eyes and (very loudly) said, “This is the best picture I’ve ever SEEN!!!” before his mother hushed him and dragged him off somewhere.
Love little kids. Made my night haha.
Anyway, I put the school logo up so I’ve blotted that out in the pictures, but here’s the process. I fixed the background, then stenciled our school logo onto a light blue (“lemonade”) fine spray. Then this morning I came back to it and put in the arrows and the banner. We’re a Christian school, so of course I themed it in a Christian way. I just kind of doodled in layers and built it up, and wrote ‘Isaiah 64:8’ in the banner. It’s a verse in the Bible about us being the clay sculpted by God, so it fit in with the theme of a) our school and b) the arts night. Sorry that the final photo isn’t too clear – the sun had gone down by the time I finished. Still, it was amazing and so good. The trees are blossoming and we put fairy lights up everywhere, so the whole place was just stunning.
the process – I only took pictures of the before and after, so soz :S



Anywho, better study for my SAC tomorrow. Whew. See you guys at the lectures this weekend! :D
