Anonymous said: Your stuff's amazing! May I ask what kind of sketchbooks you use?

Thank you! :D I have so many sketchbooks that I use and like (but eventually dismantle to use the paper individually) from Moleskines to Aquabee sketchbooks- but lately I’ve been using the paper from my Moleskines and Global Arts handbook journals because oil pastel works so well on them!

8/7 drawing.
What still lingers within an empty room.

An older photo (2012) of a tarot spread with my Deviant Moon deck. It isn’t my favorite pack but I like it a lot.

I’m not necessarily sure what I’m trying to draw- but I’m drawing! That’s all I care about at this point.

Part of my ‘Gestation’ project.

Cool things happen when I’m photo copying my drawings and my printer’s color ink is running out.

Nothing feels better than drawing and reflecting lately- no one’s company suffices but my own anymore. I’ve been enjoying these images born out of my own silence where I am reminded that the universe doesn’t care about my thoughts and feelings and that all of these natural processes are occurring all around and within us- expanding and contracting- no matter what we choose to grant importance to. It feels great to feel so small.
These drawings along with my Tarot and Daoism studies are helping me heal- in ways I didn’t even think I needed healing.

Moleskine sketch called Gestation Period.
I had a full explanation of this sketch written but I deleted it. The thing about making your own alternate/sci-fi universe and stories is that there are so many questions swarming in my own head left without any answers. Or at least any answers that aren’t contradictory or just downright confusing.
This is a process…and I’m enjoying the mess of fiction that I’m developing.
