Hi sorry for so many questions but how long have you been drawing,what inspires you,where did you learn to draw, and any tips/advice on how I could get better at it?

I don’t mind the questions at all, no matter how many. ♥

I have been drawing for as long as I remember, ever since I was a little kid.

What inspires me is good writing, with deep, interesting, captivating stories and characters. I try to represent this in my art (and my boyfriend is amazing at it, just letting you know, and I’m doing my best to capture his writing. It’s so inspiring!) Things visually appealing — aesthetics — which varies. I always end up looking at Prince’s pinterest boards and my inspiration blog. Also, music. Find music that fits your art mood, not your default sitting-by-the-train-station-and-waiting-for-the-time-to-pass mood

I’m self taught, so I didn’t learn to draw anywhere specific. Sure, we did art in school and I went to a hobby club when I was little — but the teachers disapproved of my art development and tried to discourage me rather than encourage me — save for the last teacher I had the remaining two years. I learned mostly by observing, by giving myself lessons and challenges, studying medical books for anatomy, how to draw books for guidance and understanding, and concept art books for further inspiration and insight.

As for tips and advice, I’d recommend reading this link about exercises you can do and this for improving and learning. I hope that helps.

Sorry I didn’t reply sooner, I just had a lot on my plate emotionally when this came through so it didn’t feel right to answer then, but here I am!

  1. My mum, first and foremost, because she is the most important aspect of my life. She’s why I’ve kept going, even with all the emotionally crap I’ve had to deal with, she remains the reason why I’m still here. I’m so proud of her and she’s my biggest inspiration, I love her more than anything.
  2. My boyfriend makes me smile and laugh, which I’m incredibly grateful for, despite being an awful person and rarely telling him. I love him so much and wish I could show that.
  3. My rabbits, Oreo and Maple. I got them last year during the time where my mental health plummeted and they managed to pick me up a little bit. I absolutely adore them, they are my babies and I’ve bonded with them in a way I didn’t think was possible.
  4. Sims has always been something I’ve depended on (I know it seems ridiculous) to make me happy, since I’ve played it for so god damn long that now it’s a hobby I can’t drop. 
  5. My blog has always made me incredibly happy as it’s something I’m immensely proud of. I can’t believe how far it’s come and how many of you have stuck with me and how it’s grown. Last year I had just reached 1000 followers, and currently I’m close to hitting 5000 which is ridiculous and I can’t thank you enough for supporting me with it!

Thanks again for the ask, it genuinely made me feel a lot better! <3

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
