“It’s the oldest story in the world. One day you’re seventeen and planning for someday. And then quietly and without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And that someday is yesterday. And this is your life.”
AU - Sick of the never-ending arguing between Regina and Snow, Henry finds a way to go back in time with the intent of preventing their feud from ever starting in the first place. His plan to stop Snow from giving up Regina’s secret is put to a halt when he is accidentally sent back to the day Snow and Regina first met. It is now Henry who finds himself in need of rescuing and he is saved by non other than a young, kind Regina Mills. They form a quick bond, one that Henry has difficulty giving up with a return to Storybrooke. An inevitable trip that he now finds to be an impossible task now that Storybrooke no longer exists and his very own existence is now on the line. His arrival having prevented Regina and Snow from ever meeting and The Evil Queen from being born, he now must make a choice: Find another way to reignite Regina’s hatred of Snow White allowing The Evil Queen to take form so that he may live? Or prevent Regina Mills from ever becoming The Evil Queen by protecting Regina’s happiness at the cost of himself?

All the growth, struggles, solitude (as a drawer), fighting and defending for drawing, pushing limits….only a (diving) tiger can represent and conclude my journey at Emily Carr - a short (3 yrs) and at times very frustrating but at the same time exciting and nurturing journey…definitely memorable and proud! My drawings had took flight under the wings of great instructors and the supports from friends! I can’t thank them enough…hopefully my grad piece can make them proud :)

"This is the work developed for my final MA show at Camberwell College of Arts.
The Devil Is in the Details, is a series of illustrations inspired by bizarre tales of urban Cali, Santeria, the characters, the prayers, the dark days of drug trafficking and a couple of stories of our reality that many people are clueless .
The idea was to develop a narrative from portraits of the main characters in these stories. Many are known, like the Garabato or Jovita, and there are a couple that are more generic, that happened to your dad’s friend, neighbor or aunt. It was a great challenge and the result of much exploration to be able to leave out some formats and schemas that were in my head, and to do a job to stay away from my comfort zone and be less abstract and personal.
All stories are ghosts we carry and we remember a dark side of our history, which is not necessarily bad, but sometimes we forget that we repress and is also part of what makes us unique.”
Photos of my exhibition space from the University of Brighton graduate show (and me with my excited face on). The show is open to the public until the 15th of June (more info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/621133757968294/) so if you’re hanging round these parts of the world then come down! There’s loads of stuff to look at from the whole university. And Brighton is very sunny these days and also there is beach.
There’ll also be a London show at the end of July, more on that later!
(I’m thinking about putting together a PDF of all the work I did for this show, so watch out for that too.)
this scene really struck me because I feel like everyone has this moment as a young adult. when you were going to do something, be a part of something, create something bigger than yourself and it just falls to pieces and you go through a period of almost mourning for what could have been. and from time to time you’ll always think what if?
