Must take more selfies
May or may not have found the Gomez to my Morticia Addams-ness.
Wise words from my mom (via magicrobotgeography)
Last week i went to the Museum of Death with a buddy and the attendant told me to smile (after looking at loads of corpse photos and cult paraphernalia). I love those things, but hello don’t tell me what to do! I quickly and sarcastically asked, “Do I have to?” Giving my best “bitch” face and telling him that was my normal face and that i wasn’t going to change it for him.
Don’t let anybody tell you what to do with your body! <3
Where the hell have i been all year? I’ve been pretty quiet, haven’t been taking in many commissions, or painting much at all. Maybe you’ve noticed, maybe not.
This January I came back from visiting my family during the holidays, and I became incredibly sick. Tired, dizzy, couldn’t get out of bed. Stayed in bed for a week worried, making my family (3,000+ miles away) worry, knowing i have no health insurance. I was lucky to find a health clinic able to see me.
I’ve been working with a doctor there for 9 months. Spoiler alert, i’m not pregnant! Ahah, anyway. I’ve been going on frequent visits, fatigued, depressed, and quite uninspired. She broke the news to me last week that it seems as though I have Hashimoto’s disease. I haven’t been responding to any meds, and this is going to be a very very very long battle. I’ll have it for life, but i’m hoping for it to become more manageable.
I’ve tried to keep quiet about it. Appear strong. I’ve always been one to hate to ask for help. But i realized being vulnerable and asking for help isn’t the antithesis of strong. Knowing i need help is strength.
So what’s the hell is this post all about? Get on with it, we wanna keep on scrolling, you say? I need help. My only income is through art. I’ll be putting some originals up and having a sale this weekend. I’d really appreciate if you’d help any way you can. Even spreading the word helps.
Thank you for sharing and enjoying the world i’ve built, and joining me on this ride. Hope to be inspired & bring you more paintings soon.
My birthday is in a month and i have no idea what i’m going to do for it. Can’t i just skate off in to the sunset in short shorts, tall socks, a wig, dancing to Funky Town?
i may or may not start painting giant abstract paintings. so god damn therapeutic! repetitive rainbows represents my life so much right now, get ready for more. <3
When your art hero starts following you… be cool. just be cool.
I’m working as fast (and as much) as i can to produce new paintings. But most days i may only be able to work a 2-3 hours before i get dizzy and need bed rest.
Going to a free clinic this week to see if i can get sorted out. Not sure what else to do. I hate asking for help.
So please. If you can’t afford to get anything from my shop, please help me spread the word about my art. Every little bit helps. At this point i’m barely making it.
Thank you. ♥
Oh god. oh god. Writing a long blog post being all vulnerable and giving life advice n’ such.
Scary but i’ll be publishing it real soon anyway! xo
Had a dream that i made a really detailed oil painting of Sailor Moon. Let’s make that dream a reality shall we?
