My Last Post

…for this 30-day writing challenge! I think in my case the name 30-post writing challenge suits better than 30-day writing challenge lol. Anyway, cheers!

I can’t say I love writing as lightly as I’d say I love drawing just yet, although I feel like my writing is slightly improved after those 29 posts I made. I said slightly, ’cause I know my writings still suck. But hey, look!

Post 30 – This last post 😀

Some posts are related because most ideas came from my former posts; means an idea is grown. The more I write, the more ideas I have. Just like the more I draw, the more I feel inspired to draw.

Soooo.. this won’t be the last time you see my writings! I want to try having my own domain or writing on other platforms like Medium, but let’s see. And I probably won’t post as many as I did before, but yes, there are more to come!! If you have any theme regarding art or anything else you’re curious about, just hit me up 😀

Thank you to everyone who’ve been reading my writings, I appreciate you a lot XOXO.

Five-year comparison! (2014 vs 2019)

Sooooo I recreated one of my very first mandalas from 2014! Same pens, same sketchbook.

Drawing for me is like writing a journal. When I look at my old drawing, I can mostly remember what I felt while I was drawing it, what/whom I was thinking, or what/who inspired me to make it. Also, every phrase I quote in my works (and Instagram caption) is related to what happened in my life, so I do remember what’s behind every drawing.

I used to surf the web looking for patterns that are easy enough to copy and modify (steal like an artist, right?), and countless mandalas later… My hand draws what it wants🤣 I’m just enjoying every line that I draw until now. The difference after these 5 years may look subtle, but I’m content with the progress made.
