So far, I have been reading and listening to self-help books. One of them is You are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth by Jen Sincero. She is one of the people who keeps me motivated in reaching my dreams of becoming an illustrator and storyteller. Before, I never thought that I could follow my dreams. My parents and my friends would tell me that art is only a hobby. The reality is that you can follow your dreams; no one is stopping you but yourself. I stopped listening to other people’s fears and listened to my heart. Now, I am figuring out how to sell my art online. I made this blog, signed up for Etsy and Patreon. I think that it is a good thing to start something even though you don’t know where it will lead you. I think that is what you call faith, faith in the universe that it will provide you everything you need. So, I will learn how to trust, even though it can be challenging.
So, for this piece, I got a quote that I like from Einstein. I like this quote because it tells me to not box myself in the things I am doing. This means that you are able to grow and keep learning new things. The materials that I used for this piece are
- Crayola Washable Markers (I have the 50 pieces)
- Canson Mix Media
- Copic Multi liner, sepia
- Gelly Roll, white
- Touch twin marker in skin white ( for the skin)
I post inspirational quotes on Instagram and Tumblr mostly everyday. I am thinking of making another Instagram for my other art styles. I want to know how this art style thing works. I don’t want to prevent myself from learning other stuff and box myself with a specific style, but somehow I am having a specific style. We will see, but so far this is where I am.
I am signing off, ciao 🙂
But, here’s one I did from before. I was sitting in a bench and I looked up at the trees. The leaves were so pretty.
Sometimes, you gotta observe your anger and listen to what you are complaining about. You might hear the story that has been always playing in your head. Then you can change it if you don’t like the story anymore.
Learning more about the time and memory. I’m watching Aaron Doughty’s videos
I learned that there is no past or future. It’s all from the memory bank or what Sadhguru’s says, it’s like the junk where we can get stuff when we need it for survival.
Painting leaves while watching That’s 70s Show 😂
Coloring at night. I’m sleepy right now 😴, but managed to paint with gouache .
I have been struggling with anger the past few days. Not too much like I’m going to explode, but I have been searching how to deal with it.
I learned to drop the act and just do what I would like to do on a given situation. What I mean by that is to drop the shoulds and right and wrong ways to act.
As long as I was following a guideline in my head on how to act properly, I would end up defending that act. I learned to just be the person that feels good in that specific situation.
I asked myself, “what would be the most beneficial thing to do right now?” Then I would to that.
There are so much inspiration from Pinterest.
I’m still suffering from my own beliefs and anger.
We watched Crazy Rich Asians today. It was ok 😊
I found another painting at Pinterest and tried to copy it and changed it as well.
I was able to be in the state of neutrality and it felt really good. Then yesterday or the other day before, I got really angry with someone.
I intellectually know that everything is neutral and the meaning I give it can make it good or bad, but still I keep feeling the intense emotion. It feels like I’m going to vomit.
Then I learned to give less importance to the thought or the story I’m telling myself. I’m learning it from the book called Reality Transurfing.
Im still experiencing resistance right now.
With goauche. I painted this at a coffee shop
