Redesigning: The Little Match Girl's World

Building on what I worked out last time, I'm working on a more grounded view of the world trying to add in more fantastical elements. I tried to place the little match girl's house front and center with more emphasis on what she's selling and framing it with her competition, the electric signs that are taking over the city she lives in. My next goal is to figure out what creatures roam the streets and what vehicles are putt-putting about (potentially flying vehicles?).

Redesigning: Little Match Girl

Lately I've been taking a Vis Com class at Concept Design Academy and it's been amazing! We can only use pen and its introduced me to copic markers! One of our projects throughout the course is a "redesign project".  Below are two pages from my redesign of "The Little Match Girl". The first are iterations of the match girl's house. The second image is of the slum she lives in.

Self Portrait

I had this small pillow that my auntie made me that I would carry around with me all the time. So much so that it soon had an indent halfway through it and all its pillow guts sank to the bottom. And paired with the "palm tree" updo that my mom would always tie my hair in and a big ol' smile on my face, this is me as a bebbeh!

Finishing Pieces

I'm not sure if its because of college where our department emphasized the process rather than the completion of projects or just because I'm afraid of completing things, but I haven't finished a piece in a long long while.  Someone told me that it really frustrated them when they saw me working on something and I ended up losing interest in the piece three quarters of the way through.  For me, finishing pieces is really terrifying.  Coloring, to me, is terrifying.  But I took that someone's advice and finally sat my butt down and "finished" a piece I drew a week or two ago.  (Albeit there are a few choices I have yet to make about it) it's a lot more completed than my other ones.  Goal: COMPLETE!!!!

Teapots Galore

Recently saw some sculptures of teacups with little finger-legs: (

which reminded me of "Beauty and the Beast".  I really thought these little teacups and teapots could get up and totter around.  They inspired me to draw again, thanks little teacups!

Dino Doodles

I think these dinos have become a daily thing now...  This guy shows the dangers of being too eager when eating candy.  Wrappers make you sick.
