One day ? Or day one. You decide. ✨
Il y a un an, je prenais la décision folle de me lancer seule dans cette aventure. J’avais 160 abonnés, un rêve, une tablette graphique médiocre et beaucoup de peurs. J’ai fait beaucoup de chemin, j’ai beaucoup travaillé, j’ai tout donné et ça a fonctionné. Vous avez des rêves? Vous attendez l’approbation des autres? Il est temps de se lancer, peu importe ce qu’il arrive, aucun regret! ✨
Flora y fauna. Getting back to illustrating after a week on vacation. It was fun to spend time with family and friends, but my introverted self is excited to get back to my painting schedule with an endless amount of iced coffee and a bunch of episodes of my favorite podcast I’ve saved up. Who else craves their creative alone time like me?

When you still get catcalled in winter clothes 🙄
I will be changing my color palette every month. I hope you loved my October color palette as much as I did (it will come back eventually!) ✨
The ‘We Bloom Brighter Together’ sticker now comes with either a transparent or opaque white background ❤️💐
(Sorry if the quality of this photo looks terrible, this is my third attempt at posting it but IG is being a ratbag today)
• I was thinking about the end of ze world (climate change) as I drew this.⠀
• An illo inspired by "Red Flags" for @tenpacesanddraw. First sketch by @parayoung14, final illo by me! I don't think I would have imagined these animal characters on my own. It was super fun creating the end of ze world influenced by @parayoung14! ⠀
• Thank you @alyssanassner & Rachel Dougherty for having this cool space for illustrators to collaborate! ⠀
Why do you feel stuck?⠀
Imagine if you were a successful artist and had built your own freelancing business. You create art every day and interact with people who inspire you.⠀
Now flash to reality.⠀
How would you change what you are doing NOW to reflect the person you are trying to be?⠀
The next time you feel stuck and don't know what to focus on, ask yourself:⠀
𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐰𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐢𝐭 𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐤 𝐥𝐢𝐤𝐞 𝐢𝐟 𝐢𝐭 𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐲?⠀
So tell me, what would you be doing differently?⠀

lo llamamos homero, le faltaba una patica, estuvo solo y un poco contemplativo casi toda esa tarde.

El pájaro ("The Bird")
Tu me traes a puros brincos, como pájaro en la rama.
You have me hopping here and there, like a bird on a branch.
I was in the mood earlier this week to do a fun lil Christmasy holiday illustration for y’all!! I found an inspo pic for this on Pinterest and loved the cuteness & quirkiness of this so much!!! I’m soooo ready for the holiday season!!! COMMENT your fav Christmas song below!!!! 💘🎄
Some days ago one of my lovely followers reached out to me and told me how happy she'd be if I make artwork inspired by her photographs. So glad she did, because her work is stunning! I had trouble picking a photo because there were so many I wanted to draw. Go check out @benedetta_cari ♡ If there is one thing I love about Instagram, it's the possibility to connect with so many great artists from all over the world and inspire each other.
If you are an artist and want me to have a look at your work, don't hesitate, I don't bite and I don't care about numbers like follower counts or likes. Hope you all have a nice evening! #illustration#illustrationart#womenofillustration#maison_cc#finelinework#womenwithpencils

Let’s be real, it’s no secret that women’s clothes have been seriously lacking in the pocket-arena for quite a while now. And super-cute functional work wear? Forget about it. Until...

Estos días me siento súper cansada. Tengo pocas ganas de hacer cosas; tengo mil emails para leer y contestar, muchos compromisos sociales, volver a retomar las rutinas, hablar e intercambiar 3 idiomas todos los días, mis freelos, mi side job... y el frío que me invita a querer quedarme en casa y no hacer nada. .
Me siento súper culpable cuando no llego a cumplir deadlines conmigo, con ustedes. Con no crear tanto contenido como me gustaría: tengo mil proyectos en pie y me falta la energía y el tiempo para seguir. .
Qué pasa cuando te bloqueas y todo te pesa mas de lo que querrías? Estoy empezando a sentirme más condescendiente conmigo misma y a “darme el permiso” para sentir y aceptar que no se puede todo. Esta bien.
Tengo esta teoría que el bloqueo viene para que uno se tome un recreo, respire y junte energías para seguir jugando y creando con la mente más ligera. .
Qué hacen ustedes cuando se bloquean? Empecemos un grupo de autoayuda para bloqueos creativos!
PS: muchas gracias por los mails que recibí en respuesta al newsletter de octubre. Los responderé pronto 💛

Lately I’ve been feeling super tired and incredibly unmotivated to pursue any creative activity... or any activity at all to be honest.
I always put myself down for not meeting the deadlines I set with my projects, with the projects I create for yourself. The guilt for not creating as much content as I’d like to; I have a million projects I’m working on yet not enough time or energy to invest in these. .
What do you do when you’re feeling blocked? I’m trying to see this place as an opportunity, as if my mind and body would be asking for a break. A break that will bring some time to inspire and recharge in order to start playing and creating again, feeling better, lighter.
Let’s start a #creativeblock support group to help each other getting over this pressure! How do you overcome it?
