Choose Happy

Hey everyone! I feel like this week I finally had a wave of creativity and have had many ideas just flowing out of my brain. It’s been really nice since it feels like I have hit a creative block during this quarantine. I have been having to force myself to sit and draw. So I will definitely embrace this spurt of creativity. Here is one of the doodles that I did last night on my iPad using the Procreate app. It’s nothing too fancy, but I like how it turned out. This message does really come at a good time! We should all try to choose happiness during these uncertain times. I am really trying to practice this daily. What kind of things are you trying to do to keep happy? I have been trying to keep creative, baking my favorite treats, enjoying my garden and making simple home improvements. I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe! Enjoy!

Think Positive

Hey everyone! Here is a lettering doodle that I did this past week. I downloaded some new procreate brushes and had fun playing around with them. I know the phrase “think positive” is pretty basic, but it should definitely be the motto right now with everything happening around us. I have repeatedly had to say this to myself during this quarantine. I know I’m probably not the only one! So I just felt that I should just put this out there in case someone needs to read that phrase today. I also played around with the animation feature in Procreate and thought it would be cool to see it come to life. I just put this design up in my Society6 and Redbubble shops if you would like a print to help inspire you daily.

Hip Hop Bunny

It’s the start of another week of quarantine for everyone. This will be week 4 for my family. It’s starting to feel like the movie Groundhog Day. It seems like the same events happen everyday. The time goes by really slow but night time comes so quickly. Like you have all the time in the world, but not enough time to get everything accomplished. I hope this whole mess will end soon. Easter is coming within the next week and I feel like I’m just not prepared and ready for it this year. I did manage to draw a couple of Easter themed quick pieces within the past week. Here is one the drawings that I managed to create during this quarantine chaos. It started with the bunny but I felt it needed some spunk and added the saying. And of course he needed a chain and sunglasses to match the attitude…lol! I hope everyone can stay positive during all this and hopefully this puts a smile on your face. Enjoy!

Homebody

Hey everyone! Are you a homebody? I am! I’m not ashamed to admit! On normal circumstances I enjoy being at home, having alone time to my self and like being in my own element. I guess you can say I’m an introverted extrovert. I love being around my friends and family but I tend to hit a wall and need to have space to myself to recharge. Anyone else like that? I will say that with this pandemic, I am getting a little stir crazy. I don’t know how much longer I can manage staying in my house and not start to hate it. I know I am not the only one! I did this quick drawing last night to help keep my sanity. I drew this cute happy pup in his house with the phrase homebody. He is definitely happy to stay home!  Keep calm everyone, stay safe and keep being creative!

Bloom Where You Are Planted

It’s a new week! This quarantine business is for the dogs…lol! I have been trying to make the most of it and just relax, but I don’t know how to do that very well. Just like my dad, I like to constantly stay productive. There are all these things that I would like to do around my house and yard, but the whole staying at home thing is kind of preventing them from happening. So for the moment, I will try to keep busy by drawing knew stuff. I saw this phrase the other day and loved it. I need to practice it a little bit more. I did the lettering and drew out everything digitally in Procreate. I hope you all find this saying inspirational and gives you some positive vibes today. This sweet saying is now available in my Society6 and Redbubble shops on product. Enjoy!

Keep Calm

It’s been a crazy week to say the least! I know everyone is trying to make sense of what is happening with this virus that is spreading. Everyone is handling the situation differently, whether it be stock piling on supplies or doing their best to stay home. I hope everyone can remain calm and be compassionate to one another. That’s truly what we all need now! I drew this in anticipation for Spring Break, but it’s definitely not feeling like a fun break any more. So I changed it from Spring Break theme to something that is relevant to the situation. I drew this digitally using Procreate and love how the color combination turned out. Keep calm everyone and do your part in the stop of spreading this virus!
