You know when you’re drowning, you don’t actually inhale until right before you black out. It’s called voluntary apnea. It’s like no matter how much you’re freaking out, the instinct to not let any water in is so strong that you won’t open your mouth until you feel like your head’s exploding. But then when you finally do let it in, that’s when it stops hurting. It’s not scary anymore. It’s actually kind of peaceful.

"The pen knows where it’s going and I’ve got very good at following."

I find Shantell Martin's instinctive, almost zen-like, approach to drawing so inspiring. A true example of working from the inside out.

"I come to a drawing with intention, a good intention to make something work. I feel like I’m doing what I’m meant to do, and how I’m meant to be connecting with the world.

You know, I get asked ‘how do I plan my composition?’ And I say, ‘I don’t plan. It just works.’ And I don’t know how it works, or why it works.

I trust in the pen and I trust in this experience. And every time I step back, I secretly say to myself, ‘It works.’”

Trust in your creative instinct, it knows what it’s doing.

Never discredit your gut instinct. You’re not being paranoid. Your body can pick up vibrations, some better than others, and if something deep inside you says something’s not right about a person or situation, trust it and keep it pushing.

But it’s too late now because she deserves better
She’s not like his favourite worn out old sweater
That gets used for his comfort
But never worn out
Because to be seen in public
Would give his mates doubt
About how cool he is and how much he slays
So instead she’ll move on and in her past he’ll stay
