Little tiny whisper message


Just wanted to let everyone know I hope you have a wonderful christmas and a happy new year. 

I hope to start posting things again on here and blogger/tumblr even tho I've not even drawn much for months. 

This year was tough and strange and its been hard trying to find my way and calling in life. I dont even remember where i was or what i was doing next or how the new blogger/tumblr works.

But even tho i feel like Im getting no where with my work or in life i do know that you don't get anywhere if you give up.

So i wont give up and i hope this new year will be fruitful and maybe ill get a little sign or break through that ill get somewhere.

Thank you for your undying support and love you know who you are.

things are to tough just now




It's exactly what it said's on the tin things are pretty tough just now on the home front.
I've been really exhausted lately emotionally and physically so much that its been even more tough to keep up with such a simple thing as blogging a few days a week.
And making new work to show has just been as difficult, sorta had a tiny break down yesterday from how stressful everything is.

As much as i love Blogging and being online with my work and sharing/talking to you all...i need some space to get my head better and figure out things in my personal life. Its a shame cause things were going so well for a few months there now its sorta spinning out of control again.

Its also something I cant do anything about cause its a person in my family that has problems and we are all helping them but they wont help them selfs and its getting to the point were its getting far to cope with. Theirs a lot of added stuff going on around it all as well that i need to sort out.

Don't worry tho cause i will continue Monday Muses with artists/friends that were entering or still interested in doing it when i feel comfortable enough to come back.

I really want to show you guys all the stuff ive been doing and working on but its just to much for me right now.

I will come back soon tho and i hope everything is well with you all and ill do my best to catch up with all your art and lives when i can.

Take care all

Working and Wishing on art Wednesday: Halo stop motion and sneak peaks




Oh dear its been so long since I've did any descent art work or much to show really. Yet I do have lots of little projects I've been working on slowly.

Settling into a new job has gave everything new perspective, in a strange state of mind where I'm not exactly happy nor sad. 
Its so strange not having to worry about money for the last 3/4 years and to not have excuses to be able to move forward with things I've always wanted to do. But at the same time nothings really changed, still in my tiny room with my family trying to think how to sort out my families issues and slowly trying to be creative again.

Jobs wont solve all your problems and i don't see why everyone thinks its so important to have one or why everyone puts such importance on money. From what I've learned so far money causes more problems than helps anyone, it helps your house/flat and bills but it doesn't really make anyone happy.

Even the richest people in the world it wont make them happy their to busy worrying about how to spend it all or to make them self's more powerful or doing crooked things.

And eventually the novelty of buying things with money wears off pretty quickly.


~Rambles Rambles Rambles~

CHINCHILLA OUT OF NOWHERE!

I don't mind so much that my art projects have taken a back seat been concentrating more on trying to be an adult if their is a such a thing. And I want to make my family happy more than anything but its easier said than done.

Lack of human contact as well doesn't bother me much either, bitterness sometimes surfaces but i let it go gracefully. Don't really have friends and the ones I'm suspose to have contact has taken a back seat as well not because i don't want to its just life has been so busy but I'm comfortable with it being busy and not being so social.

Have noticed more and more tho the older you get as a woman and if your not single no one really has any interest in you to even really talk to you apart from your partner or if you make contact first. Theirs always weird vibes when i make my little train travel up to were i may go to Uni.

Maybe its because I'm not really open with everyone like i feel i should be, if everyone knew a lot about my personal life tho it would probably make them pretty depressed lol!
Or maybe i make people feel uncomfortable especially men...dunnos if its cause im ugly or cause im to thin and im harsh on the eyes or they think ill suddenly break in half cause skinny woman can look so fragile.

Thats actually a pretty funny mental image oh my hahah!

I really need to get back into painting and making stories it was a nice comfort zone and probably should get back into comics and photography which i shall do.

~Work Work Work~

A few months ago I worked on my first stop motion animation with my nephew I'm guessing everyone knows about the game franchise

HALO!!!

My nephew adores this game series and mega blocks the toy company did a competition to make an animation with their toys. And then everyone was to vote and the winner would get lots of awesome stuff!
To vote tho you had to become a member of the toy site and i know everyone its far to lazy to do that so i never bothered to post it earlier for people to vote.

It was a lot of fun and i did it more for my nephew and artistic value more than anyone.

BEHOLD!


Theirs some chubby fingers and tape in there but it was all good fun! waaaaaaah!

It took two months to make that tiny film between me and my nephew it was tough work but its all good!

I've been doing some drawing and project making on the sides and currently making my Halloween costume.


Guess who I'm going as NYAH!?!

Anyone else dressing up?

god it felt good to get stuff off my chest! See you guys on fashion friday!

Monday Muse: Insaneinsightz



Hey everyone im back with Monday muses!

If anyone else still wants to be a Monday muse please answer 
the same questions as a comment or note!

Its nice to be blogging again even tho i have a cold now from my
first shift of work boo! But golden girls and tea make it better. So ill be
trying my best to get back into art and back to you all.

This week is the lovely!
Insaneinsightz

1) What’s your name/username/artist persona? Izzy. Just Izzy. ^_^

2) How long have you been doing/interested in art? I've been taking artistic pictures since I was about nine years old. Of course, they weren't so great back then, and I've matured in my photography a lot, but it's been one of my passions or a long time.

3) What media do you like to use or are currently using? Almost always it's photography. I write and draw quite a bit, but usually for personal things. My photography is what I'm most public and confident about.

4) What do you like to show or convey when you make new work? I like to portray the beauty of simple things. Nearly everything in the world is beautiful and unique in the right situation and lighting. c:

5) What do you enjoy creating the most? Photography that will inspire someone, or make someone smile. 

6) What influences you such as other artists/styles/muses? I read a lot of fiction, and this is one of my main muses, along with music and my family. 

7) Are you working on anything just now or plan to in the future? I'm more of a spontaneous photographer - if I see something beautiful, I take a picture. Although recently I've been playing around with carbonated bubbly water... o

8) What are your dreams and goals? I've always wanted to be an author, ever since I was little. But as it pertains to my photography - I've wanted to branch out and become a portrait photographer. Right now, though, I don't have the resources for this, but I'm completely content with a nature hobbiest photographer. c:

9) Any Advice for other artists or readers? Don't get discouraged. I've gone through a lot of lulls - any of my +watchers can tell you this. Sometimes, life gets in the way of doing what you love doing, but don't ever really /quit/. If necessary, take a break. But never quit.

10) Where can internet peeps find you or your work on the web? Just deviantart... Hehe... 

You can find her here!

Heres some examples of her work!





Thank you my lovely for taking part its been a pleasure featuring you :hug:

Hello again I'm back


Long time no blogging! 
Goodness me I have been so ridiculously busy and away sorry about that!
Dude what the hell happened to blogger it’s so slow and rubbish now!

Well training in York was interesting in the past two weeks I have learned how to use a fire extinguisher, how to lead a blind person, conflict avoidance training
(this is Britain after all!)
Hygiene health and safety, how to push and work a trolley, talked and met a lot of really awesome people, gawked and gushed over cute houses and mid evil architecture, filmed a silly film in my hotel room cause I’m lame like that and much much more.

Also learned a lot about what it’s like to truly be on your own with no family or friends in a cold hotel room in a place you love. It was an interesting experience as a human.

I took pictures to show you guys.










 We made a little friend at a cosy pub we love you Poppet! Her owner was a really nice man who liked ghosts and had interesting stories.



Drawing was attempted but it was tough, was ill a lot on training and couldn't sleep in the hotel beds.



I'm starting my new job tomorrow and I DO have art and projects to show you guys but its been so tough to  put them online. But my blogs are lonely and I'm lonely for my readers and friends online.

I'll try my best to update again next week starting again with Monday muse for you guys who were waiting!
I hope to catch up with you all soon with new art and lovely things and surprises! 
I'm also going to be working on my Halloween costume as well!

I'm away to start my first shift with half an uniform ha ha!

Talk and catch up with you all soon!

Fashion Friday: Going away to York for training

 

Waaah harry potter costume so long ago was fun times!

Yeahs im going away next week for training for my new job in York. Kinda looking forward to the space ill have and i love York, but dunno if i will have internet.
So sorry if i dont update next week or most of the week after that cause im away to York again for more training. I know no one really reads my blogs but i still enjoy doing them very much makes me happy.

But going to be taking my camera and sketchbooks so i can work on art at night in my cosy hotel room and show my adventures when i get back. I have other things i could post but have a lot on my mind and should be getting to bed since i have a trail shift tomorrow.

Fashion Friday: New Job, New Room, New show

 
I had a job interview allllll the way back in July and got told i got the job on the 17 or so of July. I will be finally starting the job in a couple of weeks including trainging in York. Dont really know why its taken so long its been dis-hearting.

Got to see old friends recently and catch up it was nice and fun, started playing monkey island and the Alice maddness returns game. And a random vampire PC game its been okies so far even tho i little complicated.

Instead of doing a fashion/girly item this week decided to show you my new room. My parents were kind enough to get me a new bed and a new shelf and make my room pretty. Ive had my room and bed in a cluttered way for years so it really needed it.


Oh the things that have happened in this room.

Since i have became a book hoarder and collector of odd things over time i did need the extra shelf space.
Things such as ornaments and my Beatix Potter collection but thats for another time and another post.



Hoorah new bed!





Birdie curtains always the best! Like a boss!



 Im sure i will enjoy my new...space. Now on to fix the art room and it will not be kind.

Also the Charity Exhibition im in starts tomorrow so excited!
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cumbernauld-Cultural-Forum/185926861452503

I made tinfoilroses and bussiness cards for it to be taken for it.




 If i dont see you there hope you have a good weekend, see you on Monday Muse!

This is one out of 4 pieces ive did for a local exhibition which starts next week.

Heres info about the show!

The show will start from 24rth of September and will continue till 12th of November.

Its an art show and local craft fair with random things to do at it and most of the money from buying the art or gifts/crafts will raise money for RedBurn School which is a special needs educational school.

Heres their facebook
[link]

It took me a while to do this series which i like to call the

"Fruits of nature series"

wow not catchy at all :la:

But this series was about expanding my painting techniques especially in water colour and researching British nature/wildlife.

Wanted to challenge myself to draw things i dont usually draw as well and work on my symbolism with emotions and our relationship between nature and humans.

This is probably also the first set of consistent pieces of work ive also done.

I hope you enjoy them :heart:

Working and wishing on Art Wednesday: Be my monday muse's and finally what ive been working on!

For starters are you interested in an artistic interview about you to be posted on various networking sites with examples of your work?
If that answer is yes oh please go to this link and all shall be explained! Theirs no time limit apart from that i 'll need some interviews done in time for monday muses or i'll have to start messaging everyone the questions ha.






This is just to give everyone lots of chances/ways to do this.

Come on! it will be fun and its spreading the art love!

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Offt okies back to arty smarty ness!

If you follow me on the internet and my art youve probably noticed that ive not posted much of...that lately.
But this is because i have been working lots on stuff off the computer and keeping it away from your eyes and was getting better at the time.

So here it is all the stuff ive been working on and tonight im on a high of how much things have gotten better so here we go.

* Number one got news tonight that the tiny canvas i entered for art project is on show at a tiny cafe in Ediburgh im so pleased!


Check out their blog is awesome!



Looks so lovely and quaint need to get my butt down there and see it myself!

* Number two ive been working on 4 paintings for quite some time for a local art show next month (i'll post news about it nearer the time) Ive went and got them printed and framed and they were picked up today and oh my i couldnt be happier with the results!


Youve seen one of them before but ive tweaked it since then and each piece is based on the 4 seasons and humans relationships with nature. A bit cliche but wanted to try my hand at different colour palettes/settings/consistancy/painting techniques/studying humans and animals.
I shall post them propperly soon and ive to hand them in next week yippeee!


* Number three ive sadly not did much photography wise as ive been concentrating a lot on my painting/drawing more. But i have been getting really interesting in experimenting with photography as i always do at some point.


 Over the past few months i have been collecting old cameras and putting film in them and fixing them this is purely an experiment. But i want to see how the photographs come out from weird lenses/techniques. I plan to also get an under water camera and take pictures in rivers and the like. I hope to be working on these better and developing the film for my neglected photography account on DA.

*Number four ive been working on a stop motion project with my nephew using his Halo megablocks toys. Its been intresting and fun considering ive not did stop motion before but were nearly done and i'll totally post it when its finished.

*Other than that i still do my little fashion friday notebook and collab with writer. Also been cleaning out my room and art space riddiculously cause it really needs it and has been neglected.


Found so much art supplies and work from yesteryear! Need to work out my space better so i can work on stuff more again cause my poor esty is really neglected and ran away from home boo!

  Meet my floor with clothes on it.

Kermiee! Kermiee! Kermiee!



Taking tips on storage and organisation and colour!



Colour is also very important for making art and they have full colour charts in this book and its been an interesting lesson.

Time for some more de cluttering and getting back into more art and fun times!
Autumn is coming i cant wait bring on the pretty leaves nyaaaaaaa!

See you on fashion friday and i'll love you forever if you be part of my monday muse!

Movie, Music, and Muse Monday: It's YOU!


Been doing Monday Muse for a while I do love sharing my interests and inspirations with you all very much indeed!

Was having a think recently about how I could repay everyone who supported me during my rough and bad times. All of your support has inspired me as a person and artist to continue and have hope and so does the work you all post.

Now I want to support YOU beyond your work and comments and decided to do this through doing interviews based on you as an artist/friend!

I shall then post the answers to the questions you will answer and then YOU will be the new Monday Muse posts!

You don’t have to just be a drawing/painting artist cause all creative work is considered important including photography/sculpture/digital/mixed
media/writing etc.

If you would like to be part of my Monday Muses posts please copy-paste the questions into the comments with your answers and then I shall start

posting them on Mondays. And ofcourse I’ll let you know when your questions and art will be posted on DA/blogger/tumblr!

Here is the questions.

1) What’s your name/username/artist persona?

2) How long have you been doing/interested in art?

3) What media do you like to use or are currently using?

4) What do you like to show or convey when you make new work?

5) What do you enjoy creating the most?

6) What influences you such as other artists/styles/muses?

7) Are you working on anything just now or plan to in the future?

8) What are your dreams and goals?

9) Any Advice for other artists or readers?

10) Where can internet peeps find you or your work on the web?

Hope you like the questions and I’ll add examples of your work when their also posted or if there is any paritcular work you want to show please link me in the comments!
If you have any questions about this please ask away and hope you all have fun with this as much as I will.

See you on working and wishing on art wed!

Fashion Friday: Moving doodle and less stress



 Wore this when was helping lovelys move flats a couple of months ago the top was a gift and it is lovely and sweet. Craving to move out myself but cant till my job gets sorted or i dare tread the dangerous world of uni and life.

Thing are a little less stressful because of lovely company and some less things to get finished as i pick up my framed prints next week. I still always wonder what i do wrong as a blogger *le sigh* maybe i dunno how to make friends/arty friends even online.


Wore this today the belt came from a charity shop and the dress/top is meant to be for 13 year old's dunno if thats a good thing or not. least it covers my lanky arms and gives me invisible curves. Need a haircut as well but been to busy to even get one waaaah!

So full of food today and spent a relaxing day playing strangers wrath and guinea pigs. Made home made pizza and had a blankie with me all day. Had quality time with my lovely's family as well which made such a nice change from home and hiding in my room.




Karboot tomorrow and getting home by night to sort things out at home whoopee!
Hope you all have a good weekend! <3
