Hey guys! I’m starting university in the fall and I’m in need of more funds- I’ve applied for all the scholarships I can and I’m going to be working two jobs this summer but it still leaves unmet cost.

So, I will be selling prints of my artwork through society6. I have uploaded all of my senior AP Studio Art 2D concentration(pictured above), and will continue to upload more of my work as I scan it.

The artwork is not digital- they are high resolution scans of my actual works that are done in a variety of media- acrylic, watercolor, pen, collage- you name it. The availability of the sizes of prints depends on the resolution of the image, and the smaller works naturally don’t scan as large images, so the availability of larger print sizes is limited for some pieces.

Selling through society6 is slightly more expensive, but the quality is tenfold better than anything I could do with cheaper archival inks at home. As society6 states: “All art prints are gallery quality Giclée prints on natural white, matte, ultra smooth, 100% cotton rag, acid and lignin free archival paper using Epson K3 archival inks. Custom trimmed with appropriately sized borders for framing.“ This means you don’t have to worry about the image fading or yellowing in the sunlight.

I appreciate any and all purchases, and any reblogs. I’m going to try my hardest to be at least a slightly less poor college student.

Thanks guys!

Moment of silence not because Taeil is shirtless but that Taeil is shirtless. That there only one dude that has a shirt on and it’s not Taeil!!!

Taeil is walking around, swimming around, doing things with all these tattoos and if I was there I would of combusted a long time ago.

“Where Shayla?”

“She saw Taeil walk out with no shirt on then combusted. Her last words were “tattoos….self worth”.”


My artist just finished up the work on my latest tattoo and I’m super thrilled. This work is by David Glantz of Archive Tattoo - it starts on my chest and curls around my shoulder and goes down into a half sleeve. The parts on the sternum hurt like nobody’s business but we managed to crack this baby out in two 6.5 hour sittings that were three weeks apart. I’m beyond thrilled with it.
