So I’m making a zine. I have written some for it, but only have about two pages worth. I need some ideas.
What would be cool to see in a zine?
Basically. #coffeeart ☕
Doodle with a too-small arm. Regardless, I am proud of the lettering.
I’ve been neglecting this blog a little bit more each and everyday. I do not think it was intentional, but it has done me some good. This blog often times takes a lot out of my life, and therefore, when not using this blog, I do not have this distraction.
I’ve been doing a lot of homework and studying for school, I’ve been doing more and more socializing as the days go on, and I have gotten involved in many other activities on campus. But I’m not writing this to talk about my routine schedule or anything, no. I’m hear to talk about what God’s been doing in my life.
God has began to make me feel very uncomfortable in the place that I am. It’s like trying to get comfortable on those old school pews you find in some churches; they just were not made for comfort. I have, over the last few months, began to grow stagnant in my spiritual walk with God. It’s hit me hard how much I have not grown (and digressed) from the spiritual walk I had only last year.
I now have people coming to me for spiritual advice, for accountability, and to just be an all around good influence. I am not going to lie: I suck horribly at all three. It’s scared me how much I cannot help these people that are looking up to me. It’s scary that people are looking to me to be a good influence in their life. Now, I am not a particularly bad influence, I try my hardest to be good. But my fear of slipping up has grown so much these past few weeks. There are people here on this campus that need to see what it really means to have a relationship with God.
Anyways, God has been speaking to me these past few days and I love it. It is a bit overwhelming, however. I had a rather spontaneous conversation with a friend of mine tonight about our spiritual walk and how to maintain a good one. We also spoke about changes that would be lovely to see in the church (after reading the letters in Revelations). Through the interaction, God has shown me that He’s wanting to do something really big and something very impacting. I’m not quite sure what it is just yet, but He is preparing me for something monumental. I just pray that I can have the courage and perseverance to do whatever it is when the time comes.
On a side note:
I haven’t been painting or drawing lately, and God has gotten onto me about that recently. It wasn’t that I was neglecting my art purposefully, but with my busy schedule, my motivation and time for art has seemed to drown in it all. However, I will make time to do some new artwork. I never really thought God wanted me to focus on that area of my life; I have never been confident in my skill as an artist. But now that I have taken a break from art, I see that God is still calling me to that area of life. It’s cool knowing that God wants me to do art. Knowing that God’s calling me back to that area is motivating in and of itself. God gave me the talent of being artistic. And not only that, but He rejoices whenever I do art for His glory. How rad is that?
So I want to encourage you all: do not become stagnant in your faith! Pursue God as much as possible, even to the most miniscule amount. Because God has pursued you endlessly, and still continues to do so!
Also, if you have discovered a talent that God has blessed you with, don’t let it go to waste! God gave you that talent because He wants you to use that talent.
I love you all. Keep me in your prayers, as I will do the same for you.
So sometimes I just get the desire to doodle things whenever I get free time. I put this under a “read more” because I know many of you wouldn’t want to see my drawing. It’s not as graphic as it could be, in fact, it’s cleaned up quite a lot, but I know some of you still do not like to see things like this.
This is ridiculously tight.
Thank you! :D
My pointillism is the only area of my art in which I am truly confident haha.
Different stages of my Spider-Man versus Wolverine pointillism. I always try to get photo documentation of my pointillism projects at different stages simply because they take so much time.
This one took nearly 18 hours. I sped through this one, it usually takes well over 20 hours when a background is incorporated.
This is the same scenario as the last thing I just posted. Here’s two different stages in which I do most of my paintings. Ink first, and then watercolor.
I posted this painting a while back, but recently found the first stage of the painting, where it is inked but not painted. I just think the comparison is so cool. So yeah, here, look at this.
I just drew myself, now I miss wearing my leather jacket again. Cooler weather needs to get here quick.
I plan on setting up an online store (probably on Etsy or something) where I can sell some art. Doing this, I believe I will get a lot more motivated to paint and draw. I may also sew and make clothes, pillows, etc because that’s also something I enjoyed doing. And I’m also going to look into getting a collection of my short stories published, because I have accumulated quite a lot of them. So just stay tuned and stuff. I’m going to start working on some pieces to sell very soon. I’ll be just scraping by in college next year, so having an online store and selling some stuff would be really helpful. Thanks!
Also I have so little to do today, so send stuff to my inbox! Questions, comments, whatevs. Much appreciated!
I’m really just glad they have this on there. Good job Draw Something, I applaud you.
