Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Shoes

Hello there!
It is again Wednesday, and nothing too spectacular happened this week, but I did draw. 
And because I have drawn, I'll just show you my strange motley of creations.

Because Shoes. 

I have been focusing on realism, here are sound giraffes without spots. 

This is an illustration of my blogger friend Hannah. (Check out her blog!) 
My sister has three different nicknames for her which are, Cinnamon Roll, Sugar Plum Fairy, and Honey Bee. So my assignment was to draw her incorporating all three of those rad nicknames. 

Oh yes, and I got probably one of the coolest Christmas presents I have ever received.
My friend Keeton made one of my stickers into a sculpture! 

So that's about it for this week!
I still havn't been able to set up my wacom until my family gets a new computer:(
But, with hope, that will be soon!

Oh, and another thing, I am going to change my blogging day to Saturday. Because high-school.

Thanks for sticking around!

A Spunky Fairy and Nickelodeon Winnings

Do you remember that short film I made?
Here's a link to my post about it....
Well, I made it for the "What's your Nickfluence Contest" and (for some reason I can't even begin to comprehend) I won!
What is it that you won Abby?
I'm so glad you asked.
The prize was a Cintiq 13HD Wacom Drawing board, and after a few tax forms and complications, it finally arrived!
And here's the beauty herself.  
You don't even know how massively excited I was while opening this. I had this giant stupid grin that I could not force off of my face. 
 They even sent me a Christmas Card:)
  Unfortunately, due to complications with a certain cable that needs, not just any USB plug, but a very special one, I have not yet been able to set it up. My dad and I are working on it, but I'll keep ya' updated.
Hopefully by next week, it will be all ship-shape and ready to use! 
 School has been an absolute time eating glutton (I'm sorry that's really gross) so I haven't had a ton of drawing time, but I drew a spunky fairy late last night. 

Also a lot of faces.

Wish we luck with my technical difficulties, but with luck you should be seeing some digital art very soon!
Untill then, I hope you have a spectacular day!

Liebster Award! (tag)

Well hello there!
I was nominated by the the lovely Marie Pier for the Liebster award!
So the rules apparently go like this.
To do this tag, you have to 1) link back to the person who tagged you, 2) answer all the questions (11) you’ve been asked, 3) tag 11 bloggers who have less than 1000 readers, 4) ask them 11 questions  and 5) let them know you’ve tagged them through social media.
1. How long have you been blogging?
I had to look this one up, but I did my very first post on May 4th, 2015. So not even a year:)
2. What is your dream job? Or dream life?
I'm an aspiring animator/musican/writer, so I suppose my dream life is to be working at disney/pixar studios, with a little music career on the side, and also working on publishing my fantastic unwritten novel;) 
3. Would you describe yourself as a) an introvert, b) an extrovert, or c) a little bit of both?
I am an introvert to the core. It scares me how much I love being alone;) I also love people! I think the biggest myth that introverts hate people.
4. Are you a superstitious person?
Nah. I am a Christian, but to me superstitious and religious are very different things.  
5. Are you a cat or a dog person?
Cat person. I think I, myself, am a cat at times.
6. How would you describe your ideal year?
Hm, well probably a year full of fantastical projects and exciting prospects. 
7. How many languages do you speak or understand?
8. What will you do for Christmas this year? (Or for any other celebration that you celebrate.)
Well, I probably something very similar to what I did last year. Which mostly consists of sleeping in a eating many many cookies. 
9. What is your favorite memory of all times (or any that you would like to tell)?
Standing on top of the Empire State Building at 11 in the P.M.
10. Hot chocolate or coffee? 
This is very hard for me...
I don't have to make that decision on an innocent Wednesday evening. 
11. What made you want to blog?
To be completely honest, I just wanted a platform for my art. So I could have all of my artistic endeavors in one place. But now as I've gone into it I've found that my favorite part about blogging is all of the awesome sauce people I get to meet all over the world!

Okay, enough of me talking, now I need to tag (11) people!
Arielle Meier  @ The Selcouth Girl
Joe Hull @ The Booker Guy
Hannah Joy @ Miles in the Rain 
Devanshi @ The Elephantess
A.B. @ A B Sees
Megan @ Pen and Ink

And if I didn't tag you, it would still be amazing if you did the tag!!!

So, my 11 questions are these
1. Last song you listened to?
2. Favorite children's book?
3. Inspirational quote?
4. Ice-Cream or Cupcakes?
5. If you could live anywhere for a month, where would it be?
6. If you could eat lunch with anyone, who would it be?
7. If you could instantly speak one language fluently, which one would you choose?
8. What are 3 things/people that inspire you?
9. When was the last time you laughed and why?
10. What is something that simply makes you happy?
11.  The best thing about blogging so far?

Thank you guys, so much! 
See you next Wednesday:)
