Drawing 9/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. . . As I’ve mentioned before I’m enthralled by the way people behave behind closed doors. Intimate moments we never get to see. Those are moments that can’t really be documented because if they were it would alter the way the person behaved, so I draw them. . Como mencioné antes, estoy cautivado por la forma en que las personas se comportan a puerta cerrada. Momentos íntimos que nunca llegamos a ver. Esos son momentos que realmente no se pueden documentar, porque si lo fueran alteraría la forma en que la persona se comporta, así que los dibujo. . . . Link in bio for prints and originals

Today is International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. What does this illustration mean to you? What is your interpretation? . . . . I have met too many women that were or are in an abusive relationship whether it be physical or emotional including myself. The worst part is that they don’t realize they are in an abusive relationship most of the time. They think, he’s just very passionate, he cares for me so much so that’s why he gets like that, he just gets upset but he’s sorry, he has mental issues.. whatever it may be if you are arguing all of the time that is NOT HEALTHY. If you are sad more than you are happy that is not healthy. I have someone close to me that’s in one of these relationships right now where they argue, cry and then get over it and then it’s a cycle all over again. You’re so accustomed to the little bubble you live in you think that’s just the way things are. Write down every time you get into an argument, what was said, what was done and how you feel. Then write down every time you are happy and why. After three months go back and look at your entries. If there is more sadness and arguments and negativity that positive happy moments, get out. Even if your partner threatens you, or threatens to hurt themselves. That’s what happens in many cases, if you are concerned for their well being tell their parents or best friend and they will take care of it. It’s not your responsibility. Then block their number and live for you and if you have children for you and your children. Once you cut negativity and abuse out of your life it will open up room for positivity and happiness. To those women going through this now, I hope you find strength to leave sooner than later ❤️✨ . . And she is in the closet because it’s the only place she has where she can be by herself and let go.

Drawing 98/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. Is this a very common thing? Do you or somebody you know let your dog lick the plate when you are done? // . . I was watching @jengotch ‘s story last night and she posted a little clip of her dog licking her plate and it reminded me of when I was at my friend’s house years ago and I saw her family let their dog lick their plate when they were done. It was the first time I have ever seen that because that never happened in our home growing up. I find it fascinating to see other people’s behaviors in their homes, everyone has their own rules and routines and I think it’s really beautiful how similar we all are in the grand scheme of things.. . . I am realizing that reading your interpretations is a great exercise to expand my/our minds to see an image in many different perspectives I couldn’t of even thought of myself. So for everyone that joins in on sharing your interpretations on certain drawings, thanks! Always feel free to comment yours even if I don’t ask for it. Happy Saturday! ✨
Drawing 88/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. When you really feel like your job is sucking the life out of you, but you feel stuck because it’s how you make money so you try to fill that void with your favorite childhood treats. /// This is inspired by a phone call I had this morning. I spoke to someone very close to me that is not in a job she got her degree in and she really doesn’t like it. To anyone that is going through that I want to just say, this is temporary. You aren’t stuck. Your future depends on the actions you take today. You are in control of your life, don’t ever forget that. –I’ve been there, right after graduation and completing a 3 month internship in LA I was working three jobs, (managing an Italian boutique, canvassing for @greenpeace and selling perfume at @macys on the weekend.) I always knew this was temporary.. every night I would send out my resume and apply apply apply. I kept working on my art. In one year I became a full time artist! You have to believe it will happen, envision yourself in your ideal job and it will manifest as long as you put the work in. A couple books that really helped with getting my mindset right were The Secret and The Seven Minute Solution. I hope they help you too. –(Shout out to @skdonutsla for gifting me with 6 delicious donuts one time when I was in between jobs that was such a highlight to my week. )– I would like to know how you overcame leaving a shitty job and how it has changed your life?! Your story can inspire the person that needs it. ❤️– putting the time lapse of this drawing on my story now. . Link in bio for prints and originals
Drawing 87/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. This is when you go into @sephora and take it just a little too far. /// Today I went into #sephora to just get a couple things and of course got sucked into trying new makeup and then when I looked into the mirror I looked like a clown The bright red @tartecosmetics lipstick was smudge free so it was extremely hard to take off even with the provided makeup remover. I felt like a little kid again when my best friend @pkpicasso and I would take her mom’s makeup and go all out for hours. // I’m posting the time-lapse process of this drawing on my Instagram Story now. . .

79/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. Your relationship has reached a new level if you change your tampon with them in the room. ///This drawing is another version from the drawing I did digitally in 2015 for @eentertainment I will post the older one in my story with the link to see the whole article of “Gross things people do that are in love. ” I had this concept brewing since 2013 in my sketchbook. In 2014 when I went in for my interview I showed them my illustrations of this and I think it helped get me that job.
75/100 drawing a day for 100 days challenge. To my friends and family that I haven’t talked to in a while or called in a bit, I Love You ❤️ // It’s hard to keep in touch with everybody, we don’t have to talk everyday for you to know that I cherish those times we spend together and I can’t wait to see you again. // Airport goodbyes are the saddest, I always get a knot in my throat and cry.. my family lives across the country so I get a couple of these goodbyes a year and they are the hardest. Today I am buying my ticket for the holidays coming up ✈️ See you soon ( I will put the two photos that inspired this illustration in my IG story )

Drawing 67/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. Sometimes there is so much going on in life, the world, your home, and you feel like you need 7 lives to finish your to-do list. This is just a reminder that you can say f*ck it for 10 minutes and regroup. I seriously don’t know how moms do it with kids and pets and laundry piling up and stomachs to feed. Sending all moms out there who need a little break a big virtual hug❤️
Drawing 59/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. Take time for yourself, we often get caught up in routines and forget we have the power to break them. Build that fort in the living room on a Tuesday night, eat pizza while smelling your favorite candle in the tub, go for a hike.. whatever makes you happy, gets you inspired and in the right mindset, do it more often. Don’t wait until the weekend to treat yourself. You deserve it. //
Drawing 56/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. When you see a white hair and it reminds you how old you’re getting and all of the things you wanted to have accomplished by this age. So you get your partner to come help cut them out or you pull them out yourself because.. who needs that rude reminder? ✂️✂️✂️– So after this post I’ve been getting messages about how I should be proud of what I have achieved at this age, and that I’m not that old..etc. I know I’m not that old, thirties are great years and I’m looking forward to them. And I am really happy about how far I am in my career, but as a women who wants multiple kids and wants to tour the world and publish books and work an a ton of projects it gets a little messy at this age since the older I get the closer I am to my internal ticking clock of having children. I’m not ready for them but I do want them in the future and before them there’s a lot I want to do, many places I want to go and things I want to accomplish. My mom got married at 23 and had me at 24. She always gave me this piece of advice: “Do what you love before you have kids, travel, spend alone time with your partner don’t rush into it.” I take that advice to heart and have followed it but I think it’s normal to feel that pressure when I am reminded of my age. ✨
Drawing 38/100 of the drawing a day for 100 days challenge. This drawing is inspired by my good friend, @gracesmithtv and @bernardofeitosa. I caught up with her yesterday and when I asked her how everything is going after giving birth to their first child, Patrick, I had to turn it into a drawing. I tried to show the messy room full of love, help, sleepiness and her multitasking like a #superwomen.
