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!
In love with listening to Jhene Aiko at the moment and redrew the album artwork for ‘Triggered (freestyle)’.
I am really getting in to drawing album artworks and will be illustrating more for some of my favourite songs – watch this space!
A good friend of mine (and also dedicated client!) has commissioned me to illustrate another picture to give his lady friend as a birthday present. I was first given this task last year and comparing the 2017 illustration to this year’s one, I am so happy and impressed with how much I have improved not only with my skill, but with my composition, colouring and speed.
She is beautiful, inspiring and a great role model to look up to. It’s Yara Shahidi!
So back in November 2017 I did some filming with BBCThree for their ‘Things Not to Say to Cosplayers’ episode! It was so much fun to do, an exciting and quite nerving experience too, but never did I think that from me just planning out the creation of my Moana costume this time last year would get me to here! I’m really proud of myself for doing this, I usually shy away from the camera but it’s so important to capture these kind of moments – it’s definitely a stepping stone for me. Watch out for more cosplays in future! Enjoy the video, it was good fun to do 🙂
There was a problem with uploading this last month but here you are and it includes a plus one where I celebrated the first day of Autumn!
I apologise for the delay in showing these but here are the photos from London Comic Con where I cosplayed as Moana! Everything was entirely handmade and I am so happy with the results, it looks really authentic – like I am a real islander!
May ID illustration – Aliyah and Moana fusion in celebration of completing my cosplay and I shall be attending London Comic Con dressed as her! I hope the weather is gorgeous for it too 🙂
