BlackentheCrestfallen: A Celebration

the newest, 18 illustrations for poetry/story book
A Tale of Crestfallen by FloLady Ochie

old illustrations
really don't know what to do with them

all of the illustrations for poetry/story book A Tale of Crestfallen are finished!
am moving to the layout and final art now.

am writing this post, Emily's style, to celebrate my own works.
Sounds narcisstic but don't care.
It's been a long, flowery journey for me to finally finished these artworks.
they're not the best illustrations in the world
the skill and details are not perfect or super awesome
but love them
made them with lots of love (yes you may puke, but that's the truth)
and my ljubi's poems are so beautiful, so am enjoying every process 
of each illustration.

2010 to be exactly
I made more than 20 illustrations, with different style and used watercolors instead of pencil colors.
but before I could finished them, was hit by reality, a simple yet destructive one.
The reality that my drawing sucks, lol.
was busy with Rory and new life as a Mom, i didn't realize that now, there are many
new, young, super-talented artists, with super amazing drawing skills.
This simple reality paralysed me.
was petrified and scared of them.
well, the bottom line was, i fell into my own abyss (with magenta monster, yes)
and hibernate for a very long time (am a bear after all).

that was the time when your social links fused you a new persona
(yes i played too much Persona, so you can read it as:
that was the time when your true sisters and friends came to save your ass)

Without my ljubi FloLady Ochie, who kept encouraging me to keep drawing.
without my PIC Odilia Fenny, who kept saying that i have my own style of drawing 
without my daughter Tatiana Romanova who kept putting heart icon in every drawing I posted
without my other daughter Ipit, who even asked one of my drawing to be put in her office 
(really proud of that)
and without my Lady of the Wolf that suddenly is a big fan of Silentia
without them, i don't think i could finished these illustrations

so thank you all!
these are for you!
and let's celebrate!

BlackentheCrestfallen: A Flowery Sneak Peek

"I must warn you before you read this book.
This is neither a poetry book nor a beautiful collection of rhymes."

A flowery sneak peek for my illustration project.
It is so much fun making the illustrations for my twinny ljubi FloLady's poetry book.

This is a postponed project,
it started like, 4 or 5 years ago T___T
hopefully it can be launched this June

can't waiiiit
my twinny's poems are awesome and unique
i love them all and it's such an honour to do the illustrations
