A Little Boy And His Bear - #doodlewashSeptember2019 For our prompt of “Children” today, I opted to sketch something that reminded me of Little Charlie. I’ve always loved teddy bears and still have my very first teddy bear with me to this day. Well, not all of the time, these days. I liked to spend a fair amount of time alone as a kid, and that hasn’t changed much as an adult. But, I was never fully alone, because I always had my teddy bear by my side. My first bear was actually bought in the store, but the teddy bears that came after that were all made by my mother. In fact, for this Christmas, I’ve requested she make me another Paddington Bear, this one based on the current movie version, as he’s my favorite bear of all time. It’s not just about the bear, of course. It never really was. I always thought that my mother’s ability to create a teddy bear from scratch was perfectly magical. She’s always been able to make anything I could dream and then surprise me with things I had yet to imagine. She doesn’t make as much as she used to, so of course, that’s the main reason for my requests these days. When someone has a talent for something, I just can’t stand it if that don’t DO something with it! So, I’m not at all above challenging my own mother to make a little bit of art… (full story on doodlewash.com!). - - - - - - - - - - - #doodlewash #WorldWatercolorGroup #watercolor #watercolour #artoftheweek #artjournal #artistjournal #artjournaling #visualdiary #visualjournal #watercolorillustrator #watercolorillustration #watercolourillustration #watercolourart #watercolourartist #watercolorsketch #watercolorillustrations #childrensillustrations #creativityforlife #illustrationart #watercolordrawing #kidillustration

How this year began is so different to how this year is going to end. I would never have guessed so many of it. The depth of failure and the depth of success. I never would have thought that I’d be running a business alone. That I’d have my own German business. That I’d be interviewing in German to be part of an incubator for creatives. That I’d be confident in what I could bring to it. I couldn’t have dreamed of the friendships I’d make. Of the beauty that can stem from loneliness and taking small steps. Who’d have thought I’d be published in a book!? I made so much bad art this year and am totally okay with it. Because I made it. This was a quantity over quality year. I’ve learned - truly - that perfectionism is not real. Life happens in seasons and this one currently for me is a season of loss and pruning because an upcoming season will have growth. Even with all these changes, the heart remains the same. This page is about my identity as mother and my struggles accepting it since I never saw it being part of me. As it turns out, a lot of what you don’t expect makes for the very best things.

The BSPF Preview was this weekend, and we were thrilled with the participation of our visitors! A lot of people came, had a drink, observed, attached their favorite pictures to the themed walls, and then today came again to take some down and bring home as a memory of the event. If you participated in the BSPF, at least one of your pictures was at the BSPF Preview this weekend. All pictures had the name of the artist in the back, so don't be surprised if someone contacts you or starts following you in the next days ;-). The BSPF Photo Marathon is still on! If you took a picture today in Brussels, share your picture with the hashtag #BSPFPhotoMarathon and you are participating in the contest! The best picture will be printed as a postcard to give to visitors during the BSPF this 4-6 October. Thank you all who participated in the BSPF Preview! We had a blast! Now, see you at the 4th edition of the Brussels Street Photography Festival, this 4-6 October at @maison_des_cultures_molenbeek , @touraplomb and @muntpunt. . . . #BSPF #BSPF2019 #photography #streetphotography #streetphotographer #photodocumentary #storyofthestreet #streetshared #photoseries #photographycontest #lifeframer #streetphotography_bw #photocontest #dailyphotography #dailydoseofphotography #colourphotography #scenary #people #potraits #potraitphotography #visualsoflife #magnumphotos #candid #streetshot #lensculturestreets #visualdiary

L’édito de ma newsletter du dimanche. Envoyez-moi vos adresse pour la recevoir directement —— Bonjour ! Salut !  C'est le début de l'automne. Et je me suis dit que j'allais me concentrer là-dessus pour essayer d'y trouver une dynamique nouvelle. La fin de l'été à été très riche en émotions, fortes, plus ou moins faciles à digérer (je vous en parle demain dans un article). Mais j'ai envie d'avancer, j'ai envie de retrouver un certain dynamisme intellectuel qui m'a un peu manqué ces derniers temps. J'ai décidé que j'étais prête et je m'en réjouis. Il faut que je me trouve un nouveau rythme et que je m'y tienne, je sais que c'est comme ça que je suis la plus efficace. 
Donc ce rythme devrait être de sortir boire le café le matin, revenir travailler à la maison et de préférence avec une liste de mes choses à faire préparée la veille sinon je crains d'avoir du mal à savoir par où commencer, au moins au début. Je me demande aussi si je ne devrais pas reprendre mon petit journal visuel. Je ne sais pas pourquoi je n'en avais pas le courage les derniers temps, je pense pourtant que j'en tire quelque chose d'assez cathartique.
J'ai déjà repris le rythme de la danse et je suis à peu près convaincue que c'est de là que je tire à nouveau ma force : à la fois de l'activité physique mais aussi du contact et des fous-rires avec les copines.  Bonne semaine et bel automne✌🏼 . . #jeannezam #blogueuselifestyle #slowlife #viedefreelance #visualdiary #journaling #dimanche

Eve son aldığım kahve buradan✨ Burayı doğru anlayıp bulana kadar birkaç yanlış tercih yapmış olabilirim ama geç olsun güç olmasın? Hem espresso için tavsiye ettikleri Kolombiya kahvemi, hem de geçen storyde paylaştığım muazzam kakaoyu çook sevdim💞 Diğer kahveleri de sırayla deneyeceğim, çok fazla çeşit var, bir sonraki gidişimde de kakaoyu kiloyla falan alacağım🙈 Refika’nın Mutfağı’nda buradan baya detaylı bahsediliyor. Şu arkadaki makineler yanlış hatırlamıyorsam Almanya’dan ithal ve dünyada sayılıymış👌🏻

Nesting journals. Page peek. I've reached a point of critical mass. I've started on the final section of my book. When I reach the finish line, the book will have over 300 pages. Once I finish section 4; I still have an afterward and a gratitude section to add before I can say I'm done, call it a wrap and in the can. I've poured my heart and soul into this ptoject I'm at the point where I'm ultra editing all of the material I pulled at the beginning of the process, saying no to a lot, removing pages I was set on, finding others that were gems, hidden in plain sight. I'm nearing the finish line peeps. I can see it.❤ . . #nestingjournals #artjournal #journalart #visualjournal #mixedmedia #collage #play #visualdiary #markmaking #liberatecourse #susieinmnbook #souldrift #wordcrumbs #poemcrazy #truenorthartsjournal #livetrueart #process #mess #northerngal #handbound #scraps #handboundjournal #myrightnow #inspired #foundpoetry #foundtext #thoughts #raw

„Żeby coś było piękne, to nie musi być ładne." [Rei Kawakubo] . . . Cytat odnosi się do powrotu weluru... Dla mnie to materiał obciach i koszmar. Dresy z niego pamietam. A plisy? Projektant płakał jak projektował! I kiedy już w rozmowie z koleżanką wyszydziłam powrót „aksamitu” na ulice - z wystawy do mnie „zawołała” ta spódnica. Rzadko ostatnio robię zakupy w sklepach stacjonarnych, galerie handlowe raczej omijam, ale tym razem zwyczajnie chciałam ją mieć. I mam: plisy, welur i kwiaty w jednym .. . To tyle w temacie gustów i guścików. Wiem tylko tyle, że im bardziej coś brzydkie na początku, tym bardziej później mnie się podoba 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️🤨 (Coś mi mówi, że dawno już nie było typowo modowego zdjęcia 🙉.) —————————————————— #mystyle #welur #skirt #spodnica #styleover30 #zdjecie #fallstyle #autumnoutfit #autumnvibes #mojaszafa #womanstyle #kobieco #bluetones #floralpattern #midiskirt #fashionlover #normalstyle #nothingisordinary #instablog #instadiary #visualdiary #sundaymood #aboutlook #ootd #outfitoftheday #outfitinspirations #kaprysymody

23092019: on the fourth anniversary of my absent father’s passing, i am no closer to reaching an emotional conclusion than i was the year previous. but i am moving forwards, and maybe that’s enough. it feels a little strange that i mostly draw self-portraits for this every year, but ive yet to be able to call upon much positive memory of him to do otherwise. maybe someday i’ll piece together what little i can. thank you for reading this far🌻 . . . #drawings #illustration #comic #digitalart #csp #clipstudiopaint #mangastudio #b &w #4koma #selfportrait #diary #visualdiary #death #artistsoninstagram

Best happy birthday wishes ever. In a few months I’ll be celebrating another birthday and I’m still playing catch-up with my visual diary. This one’s from last year. Nicolas still thinks my birthday is also his birthday but he can pronounce his “R’s” better :) #visualdiary #playing #catchup #birthday #wishes #boy #boymeetsworld

Can’t believe it’s the last day of summer already! I mean I literally can’t believe it because it still feels like summer in Valencia. I tend to spend too much time worrying about the past and the future, so I want to take a minute to celebrate some of the things I did accomplish these past 3 months, to kick that imposter syndrome down a notch: I got to paint my first mural! Then flew to Seattle for a dream of a commission, painting large scale on canvases for the first time in years. I also got to paint at an event live for the first time! I even found the courage to turn down a few cool client projects because the contract terms were really unfavourable. Plus I not only survived my first scorching summer in Valencia, but met some great new people, and learned last week that I tested into a C1 level Spanish class! Reading everything in a list like that creates such a boost. I spend so much time comparing myself to other more established artists, wondering if I’ll ever get to where they are, but seeing things laid out like that helps to focus on the accomplishments rather than the daunting to-do list. What are some things you’re proud of having accomplished these past few months? Not just on a career front, but also on a creative, personal and interpersonal front! All of this is really personal, so feel free to keep your answers to yourselves if you’d rather, but if like me you struggle with self validation, I highly recommend doing it! . . . . #dailycomic #artjournal #visualjournal #visualdiary #comics #diarycomic #makingcomics #webcomic #webcomics #originalcomic #autobio #comicstrip #autobiocomics #instacomic #bujo #bujoideas #bulletjournal #bulletjournalcollection #bujocollection #createdtoday #comic #dibujo #micamade #womenwhodraw #illustratorsoninstagram #inkfeature #blackworknow #blackworkillustrations #inkdrawing #illustrationartists
