"Your art makes my heart ache."

anonymous, from here

(Criticism that makes me happy but sad at the same time.)



The best compliment I have ever received regarding my art:

I like your artwork because it is sincere.

The best criticism I have ever received regarding my art:

It’s good but I’ve seen you do better.

i need to constantly remind myself of this. 


Anonymous said: What kind of blogs do you follow? just art? or celebrity ones? nature? :)

Mostly my friends’ blogs and artists I like! There are also a few blogs from when I first made my tumblr and followed everyone back. And also Stoya. 

On my personal blog, I follow mostly artsy and humour blogs.

Haha, thank you! It’s nothing to be embarrassed about <3 

Tinder is love. Tinder is life.

sleep paralysis, hallucinations. august 2014
tumblr | facebook | instagram | shop
Here is a rather personal post. I have been suffering from sleep paralysis since I was eight years old. It is terrifying, but I have never been all that bothered by it. It happens and it passes, never lasting for more than a minute or two. A few days ago was my worst case yet. I felt the need to document it.

Do you mean this one? I was using a pen that wasn’t water/smudge-proof, and then I added water.
