Nail Art Imitating Life

Tried out some new funky nail art techniques this morning and I’m kind of excited about it! 💅🏻 🙌🏻 *self-five* Sometimes I get bummed thinking about how I’ve completely abandoned traditional art. It’s usually the overthinking and overwhelming perfectionism that gets me, (on top of...

9-11-20

It’s impossible to forget 9-11-01. Somewhat conveniently timed, I recently found this memorial drawing I made in high school (probably from 2001) while going through some old notebooks. I wasn’t going to post this today, but I felt like it could make up for the words...

Graduation Day

I always feel super nostalgic on May 22nd, especially when I get to spend the day celebrating another friend's graduation. I grabbed my seat today at Nassau Community College to watch my birthday girl Jackie Bryan graduate and I thought, "I should have worn sunscreen"...
