Since reaching Twitch Affiliate, I’ve been so happy and wearing lilac/purple this whole week! Including this illustration I’ve been doing on stream which is my Teasona – for those who don’t know, I love a cuppa tea! I also drink it often in my streams, so I only felt it adequate to draw myself with Lavender-like tea leaves chilling (or brewing?) in tea. What I love about drawing my own original artworks is that you can really express how you’re feeling at the time, and it’s always fun to reflect back on!
I wanted to share the good news that a week ago, I became a Twitch Affiliate! I’m so overwhelmed and thankful for everyone’s ongoing support and enjoyment of what I do. I’m so excited to continue on my journey combining my love for art and games then sharing that with others too!
Also in this current, strange situation with COVID-19, particularly in London right now, it’s an opportunity for me to continue on with this! (Even though I’m mostly home doing these things anyway xD). I am able to work from home with my day job then hop straight in to a stream, so do keep a lookout and follow me for more!
Take care of yourselves. ❤
I have been working on creating a monthly newsletter so my family, friends and fans can all stay up to date with my latest news on projects, exhibits, stalls and anything new all to do with Aliyah Art! I then thought it would be cute to add my little character with the newsletter and started creating emotes of ‘Chibi Alii’ and I really love the outcome – I completed these illustrations on my Twitch stream and they have gone down well on Instagram too, so I’ll be making more for sure! Stay tuned 🙂
I am now frequently livestreaming on Twitch my art and video game playthroughs too!
Do come and check it out.
I feel that livestreaming for me as an artist and also a gamer is a great way for me to showcase and marry two of my most favourite hobbies and share that with my friends and community. I am looking forward to seeing where this takes me! Below are two illustrations that I completed on the livestream.
The work continues on making album artwork illustrations for EPs and singles! I always enjoy doing these because it’s so rewarding seeing the track out on all good streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music etc.) with my artwork clearly shown. The latest piece and also a popular favourite is ‘All of Them’ by Sa’el who was wonderful to work with!

Another piece of EP artwork I’m pleased to share with you! Vinnie and I collaborated on this to really get her vision across and it’s become something so deep and beautiful, I’m really happy to have done this! Have a listen to her EP too here: https://soundcloud.com/vinnieeek/sets/youtopia
Scroll through the gallery to see the progress from start to finish of the acrylic painting! I absolutely love Willow Smith and after her latest album dropped, I was inspired to paint her and this selfie she posted was so colourful and ethereal, I just had to paint it! I absolutely love painting and found it incredibly relaxing – I definitely will be doing more. 🙂
I was interviewed by the lovely Heeral whom I met on a project for young people that I was coordinating last year. She studies illustration and needed to write an interview and essay about her favourite illustration – which was a piece done by me! I am very flattered and happy to share this 🙂
