Drawing Tips From Your Local Art Major + some of my pieces!

28 September, 2018

I don't by any means consider myself to be an expert on drawing or all things art related but I can say that here at The Velocity of Art - I'm above average. Drawing is a skill that a lot of people give up on after grade school and I really think it's something that nobody can be inherently good or bad at. I don't think anyone is born with a gift to create, some people are just feel pulled to do more often.

So, the only thing separating you from the talented-people is self doubt and lack of will. Drawing is a skill that is useful for every person for communicating thoughts that words can't, and there are many ways to keep evolving your skills. Your local art major is here to tell you a few things that I've learned from university and how to make better pieces in every shape and size. Don't tell my art teachers that all their secrets are out.

7 Albums That Make Me Feel Human

20 September, 2018

Surprise! Music makes people feel lots of things! Music helps and calms and excites and inspires! I love it a lot! The more I think about it, the better I feel! Music reminds me that I'm alive, it makes me feel like nothing else.

As of September 2018, these are my favorite albums- not just bits and pieces of random artists who have 3 good songs. Every single song on these albums are an 11 out of 10, which is why this isn't just another playlist. The reason these records remind me that it's good to be alive is because they all have a wide variety of songs, from slow and dismal to upbeat and hopeful. They cover every different aspect of life and I keep coming back to them.

Being Pretty Does Not Equal Being Small (a poem)

14 September, 2018

I could never convince you                                 you can’t remember
that you've always                                              a life before me,
been enough.                                                     with skies that turned purple
as if you were just a body,                                  but the wrong happiness,
not a soul,                                                           when there was hope in your eyes
gentle and tough.                                                and a light in your chest.

I Am Out With The Night

08 September, 2018

For the longest time I thought I was the most creative at night and for the most part that's still true. I came home after a long day and took out my laptop, opened every social media, all my favorite blogs, and I read. I read things that were hard to read and things that were unimportant. I wrote about every single aspect of my life.

What I wrote was just for me and I'm not sure why I did it. I think maybe I wrote to just prove to myself that I can, to vent and let go and relinquish and explain. Because I thought about things over and over and when I know I had written it down I knew I didn't need to hold on so tight anymore.
