Decided to post some of my real art that isn’t fandom related to my blog, just to see what would happen if I posted something personal. Such a game changer. So, here are some portrait studies for this evening…

I do take requests if I feel like it and I’m dying for things to draw so please put some in my ask box!!

Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera 


Juliet Milagros Palante is leaving the Bronx and headed to Portland, Oregon. She just came out to her family and isn’t sure if her mom will ever speak to her again. But Juliet has a plan, sort of, one that’s going to help her figure out this whole “Puerto Rican lesbian” thing. She’s interning with the author of her favorite book: Harlowe Brisbane, the ultimate authority on feminism, women’s bodies, and other gay-sounding stuff.

Will Juliet be able to figure out her life over the course of one magical summer? Is that even possible? Or is she running away from all the problems that seem too big to handle?

With more questions than answers, Juliet takes on Portland, Harlowe, and most importantly, herself.

That may have been Gabby Douglas’ last elite gymnastics routine ever - and I’m glad that even though it didn’t go as planned that she is smiling and happy because she deserves to be happy for making history and making so many proud. Thank you for everything Gabby if you do retire you will be missed. :’)


Day 17 - Favourite rhinestone embellishment

One thing I like about Canada’s leotards is the use of the maple leaf motif. It might be on the front, it might be scattered around the leotard or it might even be on the sleeves. I love how rhinestones are used on the leotards to make up maple leaves and sometimes dot the leotards in pretty patterns. There’s even little rhinestone maple leaves on leotard sleeves! How cute is that?
