my hobbies include thinking about drawing instead of actually drawing and then getting mad at myself
I’ve enrolled for Uni so here’s the photo I’ve sent in for my student ID. I wanted to look nice and classy. ✨

Quick piece I’ve made for a zine the feminist society at my university are putting together. They’re going to distribute it at the Fresher’s Fair and hopefully they’ll use my illustration and I’ll impress some new people :)
and maybe I’ll make friends because I really need some of those oops

I made this plush two years ago for my Finn the human costume (I still have Finn’s hat and bag somewhere) and just today decided to repair his snout (moustache?). I’m still super proud as to how he turned out even though he’s not perfect. He’s staying in my bed forever now so I thought I would share.

I found this cute clutch bag sold out on New Look months ago and recently found it being sold on Asos and hit the ‘add to basket’ button so quick as if my life depended on it. Quirky fruit-themed things are my favourite :3 🍋🍋🍋

I didn’t expect this in the mail today but I sure am glad it came. A lovely hardback edition from Waterstones. Can’t wait to read it. #seconds #bryanleeomalley #

Let’s pretend I’m not only just having breakfast at 12 and let’s focus on how productive I’m going to be today ✌️

I got back from my almost month-long holiday on Saturday and came back to some cool bits and pieces. Her, quite possibly my favourite film this year, on DVD (can’t wait to watch the bonus features). Some washi tape to decorate and hang illustrations up in my room with and some golden piercings. And finally my long overdue iPad I’ve been waiting for since November. I won it (kind of) and hadn’t received it yet so they sent me a £25 iTunes gift card for the wait. So thoughtful. I love new things, especially free apple products. 👌So now I’m planning on redoing my whole bedroom (if I win some design competition I’ve entered) and creating some kick ass pieces of art! Thanks for sticking around ☺️

Festes de Sant Joan
145x145cm / 57x57”
oil on linen
Posting this here because I guess it relates to my holiday and stuff:
Carles Gomila is an amazing artist from my town in Menorca. When I came back for our town’s celebration of Sant Joan I was so impressed and happy to see what a great piece of work he had created for Estrella Damm. The poster is all around my town and I’m so glad to have found it on Tumblr now. Such a shame I’m leaving Menorca tomorrow and can’t attend his exhibition.
You should all follow him because he is truly a magnificent artist and I’m so proud to have grown up in the same town as his and been able to see his previous work in person.
Okay so I did something crazy, but it feels so gooooood. I’m leaving for Menorca tomorrow and I decided I’d like to spend the summer not worrying about how it affects my hair and having to fix the colour. I’ve decided to put the white on hold till I have an actual bob and I don’t mind the wait. No more wasting time in the shower or getting ready in the mornings. We are all gonna be bald in the future anyways. And remember if you don’t like it, you’re the one with the problem not meeeeeee!!! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･✧
I’ll be sketching as much as I can on holiday and hopefully will update with them :)

Life is Growth - Postcard competition entry
"To enter the competition, create a piece of art on a 6x4 postcard about something that has happened to you today. This could be ordinary or special, in the news or in social media. Reflect the world around you as you see it."
I tend to get discouraged and feel down very often. It has become a habit which is hard to shake. A way of coping with this is reminding myself that I’m constantly growing and learning new things, that my journey is on-going and I’ll get where I want to be in time, no matter how lost I might feel now. Everyone is at different chapters in their life and there is no need to compare. Life is growing and shaping yourself into the best version there can be of you, everyone blooms differently and that is how it should be.
Sorry for not being very active, plus I’ll be away for a few weeks and probably won’t update much then. But hopefully the rest of the summer will be very productive and I’ll have lots to show you guys. I’m hoping to win this competition so I can re-design my bedroom (I moved here two months ago and I want it to feel like a home) so that would be cool. I’ll let you guys know if I do. I hope you enjoy the piece and can relate somehow.

I don’t know how many times I’m gonna apologise for not making much art and then still take ages but bear with me guys (especially new followers). Art will come soon, hopefully quite a bit because I don’t think I’ll be able to update much during my three and a half weeks vacation.
Thank you for putting up with my shitty blogging <3
