//I want to be better. Better at making content. Better at talking to people. Better at being genuine. Better at being alive in Christ. It shouldn’t take the start of a new year to fix these things. I just need to be it. I want to thrive and not just survive. Change is happening now. This year is different and I can feel it.
#BrbChasingDreams | cringeworthy late night post bc I cant seem to sleep nowadays... lately I’ve warped up all my energy just to get better and creating and producing more products for @kishostreetwear. I stayed up til 4 in the morning last night drafting future designs. If you want to talk about how much money i put into this project before we even released the first shirt, you’d think i’m crazy. I really put my heart and soul into Kishō because it’s something i am genuinely proud of. We’re nowhere even close to being a big “hypebeast brand”... mainly because we only have 3 designs so far but that’s not even the point of Kishō. What I love about Kishō is that we’re all about personal strength, whether it’s mental or physical. I stress a lot about many different things and geez. Kishō stuff gets me so damn stressed!! But every single small detail about Kishō makes me feel closer and closer to knowing who I am and understanding the beauty of world around me. As a graphic design major, the art I create must adhere to the audience’s interests and needs for the design. Although pleasing others is something I ultimately fear, having a brand that is my own makes me feel a bit more calmer knowing that the designs stem from my interests and needs, but still can please the people who view it. I’ve always been ashamed of my likes, but having Kishō stem from the culture I deeply admire helps me be myself to the full weirdo I am. It is just so thrilling that I let myself take this chance. AND OF COURSE, all my love goes to Christian who helps me through it all and handles all my crap when I’m getting frustrated. I’m so happy he owns this brand with me because it makes me feel like the proudest girlfriend ever. (If you didn’t know, he designed the Sun & Moon collection. I only finalized the art). And a big thanks to Visual Grxphics for taking every single picture. I’m so glad that we established not only a partnership, but an amazing friendship as well. On that note, please enjoy the pictures. These are some of my favorites. #MyHeartIsFull#KishōStreetwear#Goodnight
Would you say the star is giving life or sucking it out of the fox? Or has the fox power over stars and galaxies? I have no idea.
I quite like how the colours turned out drying but I'm always up for pastels and then get way too enthusiastic while painting : I add so many layers that colours turn all very intense. It's like loving puddle jumping so much you end up in the middle of a lake and then you need to find a twist to get closer to your original idea x) Do you struggle with your love for puddle jumping too?
It’s 2018 and thank goodness! 2017 was a very bleh 😑 year for me... but it was a good year for somethings like music, movies, and most of all finding some great new artist that inspired me and helped me refocus my passion for art. Thanks @kelogsloops back to making my dreams reality. #brbchasingdreams#artthatspeakstoyou

‘see through beauty,’ a massive throwback piece to this time, two years ago! I still was really uncomfortable with watercolour at the time, and found it terrifying to begin painting onto a drawing on paper. It took me a long time before I was no longer intimidated by painting (actually, it still scares me), and started to embrace the spontaneity and craziness that is watercolour! I think I've come a pretty long way since! 😄
I got to see Coco this weekend. It's funny how narrative arcs always seem simple and familiar in these movies but how they nonetheless surprise me with music, photography and storytelling. I don't know if wannabe chefs get to analyse what they eat to guess how it was made, but whenever I watch a movie or read a novel my brain seems to think "game on" and starts the guessing game of who's who or who's murdered who etc. Miguel's story is the mere journey of a character growing and evolving through an adventure, a story we've heard and read and seen a thousand times, a story we could all have written, except we have not nor could have for Disney-Pixar movies have their own unique way to play with colours, textures and music, with all the layers that make a film in order to hit our hearts and highlight complicated feelings in a mere and clear way to have us reflect on our own values and dreams.
It's about time to seize my moment.
I mean... in a good way ;) #PixarCoco#randomthoughts#dotwork#dots#blackwork#calaverasmexicanas#storytime#brbchasingdreams#picofthenight
