painting the streets

Yeah. I'm taking a Writer's Craft course. We write poems and stuff. It's new. It's good. It's fun. I hope you enjoy. This is a little daunting.

(Illustration - Pen & Ink, Coloured Pencil)


I hope the weather is fabulous wherever you are. I hope you're wearing bright colours. Or something that makes you stand out. Or, you know, something different. I hope you're breathing in the fresh air. I hope you're making things with your bare hands. I hope you're smiling a lot. To strangers. And old folks. Don't forget about either.

Basically, I hope you're happy!!!!!!!!! Can we just be obnoxious and not worry about perfect punctuation and looking cool and send out some virtual luvin' and some "YEAH JUST BE HAPPYYYYY :) :D!!!!!!!!!" for once?!

Or, you know, ahem. Resume nonchalance.

Describe your perfect world. Or maybe even just the last time you smiled?
P.S. I'm home from Washington. 'Twas a blast. Outfit post soon. Replyin' to comments soon.

Hm, my perfect world? A place of bright colors, like something out of a Dr.Seuss book with yummy food and carnivals every weekend. And of course a closet full of my designs come to life. Your illustration and poem are beautiful, they really made me think about why i like pretty things! Thanks for another great post!

my perfect world would be simple

Last time I smiled? I watched Jane Eyre tonight with a few friends and one of the people in the theatre openly mocked one of the characters after they said something insufferable. I diiieddd.

Your illustration is mad gorgeous, and so is your prose!!! ♥♥

I am so in awe!! :)

I love this:

"I want to paint the streets with color,
It'd make things more carefree.
Inspiring people to sing,
To dance,
And not take the world too seriously."
