Worries by LoveLeeKiss
Another drawing in my series emphasizing the characteristics of the hair and how it parallels the emotions of the portrait!

Submitted for GetDailyDeviations To Tell a Story contest~~

Every other artist will claim to have loved art ever since they could hold a pencil, that the passion of drawing or painting has been within their soul since birth. I admit that I've made these claims once or twice myself , but they are rarely ever true. As I carefully inspect myself, I realize that drawing and painting were merely hobbies up until high school. Today, as my entire being is defined by visual arts, this realization is shocking.  Of course, I've always enjoyed the pride of being the "best artist in the class," but art didn't become a major player in my life until the summer of 2012. I had been enduring sexual abuse for 6 years, and during that summer I finally confessed to my guidance counselor. This confession unfortunately led to a tumult of events that included the imprisonment of both of my parents. I was placed in a orphanage, and when I wasn't at school, my caretakers forced me to stay in my dreary, grey bedroom. During that time of mental and emotional crisis, I turned to art. While the storms of my life reached a peak, my drawings and paintings were among the few things that brought me peace and happiness. I created, and that brought focus and color back into my life. I truly fell in love with art. The next year, I transferred to an art high school where I now thrive. I plan to major in illustration in college and continue to inspire others with my art. I've been constantly warned about "being poor" in the future, but honestly, who cares? I know that I can take anything life throws at me, and moreover, I am prepared for any trial I have to face.

This drawing sums up my experience. As I am surrounded by rough seas, I choose little things to focus on, to keep me motivated. 

Concentration by LoveLeeKiss
I wanted to capture the strain and tension of concentration through this ink drawing. I'm currently doing a series of capturing mental processes through the depiction of hair. Check out another drawing in this series!…

**please please tell me what you think! :)
Daydreams by LoveLeeKiss
Here's an ink drawing that depicts my take on daydreams and fantasies. I wanted to capture the movement, elusiveness, and almost enigmatic quality of daydreams. 

**please please tell me your thoughts! :)

Thank you very much for the :+fav: of my Joanna's Foxgloves watercolour painting, it was my entry into :iconjoannamoory:'s traditional art contest, and believe it or not those droplets were much easier to paint then I first imagined they would be.
