A story of starting to embrace myself and make art that feels good to make 🙂
My caption for this on instagram @treeeative was:

Last week I started to finally make my art instagram into something that I feel represents me more. It’s all happened in a matter of weeks that I’ve began to embrace my colors as an artist.
Perhaps more colors will come along, but perhaps you can see what I am naturally drawn to 🙂
So in considering the aesthetics of my instagram with a little more control, I thought I found that a lot of my old art was just not totally up to par. Aka… I’m much more skilled now! 🙂
I began to create a dashboard of what I’d want to post in the coming weeks, but I just felt that a lot of my pieces could be improved.
The drawing to the left is one that I made last summer and always found it to be a diamond in the rough 🙂
As you may know from reading through my posts… summer 2017 was a real struggle to come to myself as an artist and create with love.
Perhaps this drawing was an exception, because I really feel that I drew it from the heart ❤
So as I was trying to pull together an Instagram that I felt was more me… of course this drawing was in the line up!
However, as I was about to post it I thought… I can do better!
So I did!
An itching to draw this again grew for a day and half until I finally sat down and let myself go (with just pen). Goal = draw tree.
I put on an old playlist from summer ’17 and it really felt good to be creating with peace to the music that defined such turmoil 🙂 I call that growth.
These two following pics are of the first hour:
Since I had been drawing the ski and snowboard club design earlier that day, and had a photoshoot for Hut Mentality I was soo creatively drained from drawing. This felt really good though!
Later that night after hangin out with peeps and relaxing, I finished it in my room:
The next day I finally made this graphic to clean it up!
Annnd then I posted it on Instagram right away!!!
As you can see, I felt very happy to share this drawing 🙂
Much much love and peace,
