medicine is such a weird concept to me

Half finished projects and I have a pretty strong relationship. A bond, if you will. As in, we are often found together. As in, we seem to always be attracted to one another. Like magnets. (Much like medicine, I find magnets rather peculiar... HOW DO THEY WORK?! dun dun dun!) As in, yes, I started these illustrations 4evz ago and just finished them. As in, GO AWAY DON'T JUDGE ME. Ahem, enough of that...

I've been having a wee bit of a creative block - my doodles are lacking character and jazz and poo poo. Nonetheless, I thought I'd share these little fellows that I've finally gotten around to pasting on backgrounds. As you, glorious friends, may know, my doodles tend to rock an underlying theme of "ugly" people in beautiful situations. I don't know why I find that concept for romanticizing and whimsical and amazing. Likewise, my worlds are always filled with clouds and stars and rainbows... why not?

Anyways, I'm hoping to doodle and draw and create more. It is good for the soul.

What do you wish you did more of?
xoxo I will talk to you all soon... adventures are a' comin'... (ooh! cliffhanger!)

Ugly people in beautiful situations--- THAT is beautiful. What an amazing concept. I love it! And I love these illustrations. Your work is always so amazing!!

Also this post reminded me of an ICP song (no I do not listen to them but a friend showed it to me on youtube for a giggle) in which they question how magnets work and it is HILAR.

I wish my drawings had this much jazz! I agree with Lydia - "ugly people in beautiful situations" is a beautiful concept!

Whew Lexy, you've outdone yourself again. Raindbows and stars make everything seem so much better!

I love, no seriously I really do, the finger of the man-figure on the left (in the 2nd drawing). That arm plus hand plus finger plus star is so good. I wish you posted a lot more of your drawings.

I wish I did a lot more reading and photographing. But I seem to suffer from migraines these days :/

These doodles are gorgeous. I wish I was as talented as you are and could make such lovely creations.

I wish I read more. I love to read, but I read so much for school that when I have free time I like to just watch silly tv shows and movies to relax my brain.

That's so cool! I really wish I took more time to draw & be creative, but it's so hard to be motivated to start out of nowhere!

I wish that I had painted more... never seem to have the time (stupid exams). Your drawings are almost painfully adorable :) I love the fluffy clouds/pastel rainbowness/pretty stars xx

Hey! So, basically, I'm not really a fashion-blog-lover-kinda-person but I started following you about a year ago, then I deleted my blog and now I started up a new one and when I saw you (unlike so many) were still going on I got superduper excited. So yeah, just thought I'd let you know your blog's someone's favorite! Haha, kay I'll stop my awkward lahve message now. :3
