People on YouTube can really be quite touching, and some are sad souls!

Hello everyone!

I should be in bed, but I just finished watching Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives, I do love my escapism!

I have been addicted to listening to Kylie Minogue, Ke$ha and Adele today, I am going to see Kylie next year, I'm so excited, but I have to say Adele has really captured my attention today, her voice is breathtaking and the two songs I have had on repeat today are just out of this world. She is crying out to be drawn and I think I have a picture to base something off :)

I like to draw people who inspire me and have REAL talent and that are role models. My latest drawing was of Ellie and I've been really humbled by the comments on my Ellie Goulding drawing and the love for it. I felt I connected with the drawing and it came out well.

My little 'studio' that its darker ealier lighting is an issue.

I often find it is these videos that get the least views, where I feel a connection and do a good job. I find that a shame when the person I am drawing deserves more respect and recognition for the work they do.

I want to share two comments with you. This one was on the Ellie video from a 13 year old girl who I think wrote beautifully for her age:

"people like this really symbolise the true meaning of art. i think this is not only exceptionally artistic, but the likeness in her skin tone is very becoming. amazing xxxxxx"

The reason I think that is brill is because so many 13 year old girls would just write you're amazing, no actually 'your amazing', which although is lovely to hear is not quite the same as what this girl wrote, this girl took the time to write something more thoughtful :)

On the flip side on the Cher Lloyd video I received this comment:

"your queer
And you cant draw
gay cunt"

I get a lot of people picking up on my sexuality of course and a fair amount of negative comments, and I just thought how sad this person was, I can draw and so what if I am gay, it has made me strong and it is who I am. I just thought it is people like this who contribute to those teenage suicides because of bullying..... sad!

The world is a funny place huh? Anyway thank you if you read all of this post and I do value followers and subscribers so much :)

The yearning to draw

Hi everyone,

I must say there are some days when I just have the yearning to draw, I come across something, be it a song, or a really eye catching image that just screams out at me to be captured by my hands. Unfortunately time often gets in the way, I think oh I should be doing this or that, not drawing right now, which is a shame,  but that's life :)

I know exactly who I am going to draw next, I found their song yesterday and the video was brilliant, not your usual pop music video and I like the artist too..... No I'm not telling you who it is yet, you can guess though :D

I often find my art is best when I make that connection, really have the yearning desire to want to draw something.....

A few people have mentioned that I should draw my dog, and also do a self portrait of myself. Maybe I will in time, I've just got to find that desire :)

I'm over-hauling all my sites and bringing them up to date and giving them all the TKD branding :) .... I'm going to post here once a week at least and I'm normally around on Twitter every day :) Meep meep.

 I've been working hard the past few weeks on my website which I have created to have a solid platform promote myself from. You can see some of my work and its got links to all my sites and things like Twitter. Hope you guys like it. I also decided to sell from as I get so many requests from you guys wondering if I sell my items, so on the for sale page you will find everything I have currently for sale :)

 I'm hopefully going to be making cards with my photography and other itmes, I'm just trying to find a wholesaler at the moment so that's exciting :)

So here's a cake I made, offers you a piece, lets celebrate :)

Harry Potter :D

Hey everyone,

Harry Potter comes out in the cinema's soon and I'm really excited to see the film. I was just on holiday in Germany and re read the last book. SO GOOD! Oh Harry Potter has always been a big part of my life and it still is to this day. This summer I even went to Cork to a wizard wrock show ( a concert where bands sing about Harry Potter), Yes I'm a big Harry Potter geek and proud of it hahaa. Haha A song by one of the bands has just come on my itunes shuffle!

Anyway I recently found this drawing in one of my folders, its done with pen and is a rough, quick sketch when I was experimenting with Pen... maybe I should do some more...  :) Its fun! I thought I'd share it with you. I also found one of Bellatrix I did a year or two ago... I have an urge to suddenly do more HP drawings :)
