Mermay has been one of my favorite drawing challenges on Instagram so far other than Inktober and Folktale Week.I have always wondered about mermaids and other mystical creatures. Deep down inside I’d love to be a mermaid for a day.
These are some of the drawings I’ve made for Mermay, originally created by artist Tom Bancroft, and I plan to continue until the end of May because it’s too fun not to.
I am trying to figure out how to continue to post on this blog and what topics my readers are interested in, using this website as a portfolio, and continuing to build my Instagram. I was thinking of creating a comic and posting it here. Let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in.
I still continue to adore makeup but can’t keep up with all the new releases nor my old posting schedule as I have three jobs at the moment. I know excuses seem lame and I am trying to consolidate it all. Thank you for contiuing to support my blog and content.
I love you all!

I did this moon girl for @asayris on IG’s #drawthisinyourstylechallenge. Hers is beyond gorgeous as were so many by amazing artists. If you haven’t checked them out, go! I learned so much about shading with this one. These are just so fun to do.
This one is for @kraken_illustration’s challenge. I love how it turned out. Under the sea scenes are so my thing too so I couldn’t resist taking on this challenge.
As a kid I had neighbors who were almost like brothers. Their dog was a sweet, big, red haired dog, kind of like Clifford the Big Red Dog. I loved him dearly. He was the inspiration for this drawing, which I did as part of Childhood Week on Instagram. Lately, I’ve been down for any drawing challenge and I’m currently looking for my next one. I’m sad I couldn’t do all of the Childhood Week prompts but this week has been beyond chaotic for me, yet very amazing all in one.
One reason I’ve been a bit MIA from my blog is because I’ve been doing Inktober this year! I have longingly looked at the amazing drawings for a few years thinking I should’ve done it, so this year I did. Here are some highlights in no particular order:
(I didn’t follow a prompt on this one; It was posted on John Lennon’s birthday)
These are some of my favorites. I’ve honestly had so much fun with the challenge of Inktober and the drawing itself, although it certainly was difficult getting them done every day. I’m going to miss you Inktober!!
I’ll be posting more highlights and the best drawings on my illustrations page.
