Hey! Thanks for adding dark skinned characters in your work. As a dark skinned Filipina it's hard finding representation in the Philippines (especially the girls) when the entire country glorifies light skin. As I was younger I was often pressured to whiten my skin but now I like my dark tan skin. its hella rad

I’m glad it’s helping you out fam! I still find myself doing double-takes whenever that preconceived social notion crawls into my brain, so I’ve been making an effort to at least start changing the way I view people by starting with my works ;u;

First page/ second sketchbook.
Doodle.
I haven’t draw anything (good) new because I got a stye on my left eye and I can barely see. Everything is blurry, and forcing my sight is giving me the worst headache. Argh, what is wrong with my health lately?
!Si no es una cosa, es la otra!

Star fruit!
Sadly I can eat those much, there was this one time I ate… too many… and got really sick. My doctor told me its the worst fruit for diabetics. I need a new pancreas.
.
And I’m obviously hungry…

Hope you guys are having an awesome day/night!

It’s been a very hot day today,but I couldn’t stay inside so I chose to wear something meant to keep me chill. The outfit costed me less than a meal at McDonald’s.I bought the tee from here and the pleated skirt from this site. Online shopping is fun if you get to the right place,and this site satisfies me every time.
