I’ve been drawing so much inspiration from Folktale week on Instagram and here are some highlights:
“Witch” (based on Hansel and Gretel)
“Magic” (based on the Scandinavian folktale “Saving Spring”)
Above is a screenshot of the prompts if you’re not familiar with them. Folktale week wasn’t nearly as popular as Inktober, but just as inspiring and fun. I’m a huge fan of folktales and children’s books and illustrations. Folktale week on Instagram and here are some highlights.

I’m very excited to say I’m working on a design project. I’ve been researching and gaining inspiration for a little while, and I’m almost ready to make the actual products! Before doing so, I’ll be posting fabric swatches, more illustrations, (of the actual items) and more on my inspiration! So far, I cam say I’m being inspired by the natiral California landscape & traditional Mexican folkloric garments. 😀👖👒🌹
My vacation officially starts tomorrow and I am beyond ecstatic that I can dedicate all my time to my project, blogging, and music making. Yay!
Hope you’re all having an amazing summer so far! Make the most of it.
I’m eternally in love with vintage and always have been. Being that it’s swimsuit season, I bring you a little fashion illustration illustrating my love of vintage/retro bathing suits. I really like the old school approach to sexiness and femininity in addition to the fashion. Also, I just love the freedom and serenity of standing in the ocean and being at the beach.
Happy swimsuit season! Remember loves, the objective is not perfection. 😊❤👙🌊💧🌞🎨
Believe it or not, summer is not my favorite season. My favorite is actually the one with fiery colored leaves, crisp mornings, and the one in which pumpkin spice lattes pervade everyone’s vocabulary; yes fall! So I am more than excited about what Fall 2016 has to offer.
In the mean time, I’m still into midi skirts, ankle strap sandals, and Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana-inspired daisy appliques. What’s your favorite season?
PS: I’m really feeling down about Orlando and the horrific crime that went down there. All I can say is more live, less hate. Please.
