All using @artezaofficial Expert Drawing Pencils (I used 2H, B, 2B, 4B, 5B and 6B) on watercolor paper. This photo doesn’t do any justice on how smooth the darks are settling. Swapped out the graphite powder for pencil shavings and used lipstick brushes to blend. For finer lines, my go-to 0.3mm mechanical pencil (H & 2B lead) came to the rescue. Not sponsored, just wanted to share some 💖 with you. NEXT STEP: Scanning and drawing/editing digitally.

"If you want to be more powerful in life, educate yourself". Even though art school and a degree can’t guarantee you the golden ticket, it might give you multiple keys to choose the door(s) you want to open. At least it did for your girl✨ My friends at @d_and_ad are looking for raw, talented creatives to be a part of their night school program, New Blood Shift in New York. If you're 18+ with no degree and aren't currently enrolled in a 4-year undegrad program, this might be calling you. Applications open until 1/13 so what are you doing? Go go go🖤 For more details head over to www.dandad.org
“God is in the details” - My first graphic design professor / mentor said this while describing beautifully set type when I was a clueless 19year old at @svanyc . Even though I rarely kern or worry about grid-systems and widows nowadays, it really stuck with me. No matter what creative field you’re in, it’s all about how much love and care you put into something. 🖤
Au revoir, 2018❤️ Thank you for following this tiny corner on the internet which I call mine. All of your continuous love, support, critique- or even just a simple “hi👋🏻” keeps me going everyday. ありがとう。
