art that inspires me

I’m finally updating again! Here’s a self portrait I did for my illustration class last semester~ I feel like this is pretty appropriate for mermay

I decided to draw this thing based off of a bigger idea I had when the PPG reboot started using memes (so like… right from the beginning). Kids HATE memes/fads when adults or corporations who have no clue what they’re doing or why it was supposed to be cool or funny in the first place use them. ‘Cause then they just suck out your life essence and make you wanna die. So… clearly they should be used as a tool of evil! To destroy children! And what better lame-o to use a tool like that than THIS chimpy lame-o!

Anyway… enjoy/be terrified!

Listen.

there is a universe right outside of your window, but there is no monster under your bed.

there are a thousand stars in that sky, and not a single one of them believes you are insignificant. 

there are more than a million songs playing around the world at this very moment, and every one is written by someone who’s cried themselves to sleep at least once.

there is no known end to space, so breathe and understand that a school test won’t end it all.

find yourself in the stars, in the music, in the universe. 

I hope you are blessed with a heart like a wildflower.

Strong enough to rise again after being trampled upon, tough enough to weather the worst of the summer storms, and able to grow and flourish even in the most broken places. 

Another beautiful quote, this time with pressed flowers!
