Oy! Here, let me add one more extra thing to your daily list: Do something NEW today. Every day. Even if it’s take a different route home, add something new to your breakfast routine, do a little research on a topic you want to know more about. I know it sounds crazy, but the little things keep life fresh and you want to enjoy your life, right? Not just float through it like a zombie.   My personal favorite thing to do (not every day, of course), is to check out new restaurants.   Check out MORE Free Art here. Guys.

I know I’ve been doing my quotes by contemporary writers, but I’ve had this one quote on my mind for a month now and I had to illustrate it.   I’ve been thinking a lot about the concept of New Year’s resolutions and how they tend to fail after the first month of the year and how people wait to start resolutions until the New Year, too. The truth is, every single day is the beginning of a new year.   Or in other words: If you want to start something new, start now! It’s easier to procrastinate than to get things done– remember that.Read More →

  Well January is definitely over. And February is down the drain, too. For me, February can be a pesky little month. It’s shorter than the others but it can definitely be rough.   This month has been killer for me, with good and bad things: My first month with an AWESOME new writing contract that easily puts my income at full time just from that. Oh and I ENJOY it, too. I started writing fiction again which I’m enjoying so much and is a nice breath of fresh air from always writing articles. I attended my grandmother’s 90th birthday and it felt NICE toRead More →

Everyone has a stage where they’re kind of obsessed with mandalas right? Okay at least every hipster.   Anyway, I had that phase last year because of this amazing iPad app I have and because it is super relaxing to create them while trying to brainstorm or even just while watching TV. They’d been sitting dormant for awhile but I’ve been feeling like I want to do something cool with them– that’s how these babies were born.   Or really, my friend gave me the idea since she needed wallpaper for her new Christmas computer, ha!   Check out MORE Free Art here.   WantRead More →

Hey guys, so for this year I really wanted to focus on contemporary writers. That is– writers that are living and currently making poetry, not just the writers that we all already know about.   I want to introduce you guys to some of the awesome writers I follow through social media that just need some more general air time.   This month it’s Marisa B Crane. I think this poet is witty, hilarious, and not so frilly around the edges. She’s more than just a glass of wine and a cigarette on a Thursday evening, she’s got quotes that make you THINK.   CheckRead More →

  So we’ve passed the first of the year hump. February is when the year really gets started, right? It’s when you realize what New Years resolutions are really doable and which aren’t. But I heard this awesome quote the other day: Every day starts a new year. Meaning– don’t wait until next year to start a resolution, you can start a resolution ANY TIME. And that’s so me, I start resolutions when I wake up and decide to start one. It’s an Aries thing, I think?   Anyway, on to the your monthly free coloring page.

I know this is probably silly, but last year I managed to barely miss Valentine’s Day free printables. In fact, last year I had JUST started the website and I didn’t know where it was going to go. I didn’t even think I would be doing a Free Art Friday and yet here we are.   This year I’m on time and I’ve got three awesome printables for you. They are sized to 5×7 for perfect card printing, but they can easily be resized to 8×10 if desired.   Check out more FREE ART FRIDAYS.   Interested in learning lettering?

Is it wrong to be in love with your own art?   I am really into these calendar printables and I love the minimalist flowers. So if you can’t tell, the flower for February is violet and the color for February is purple. Now that kind of thing doesn’t really matter, but I’m one of those people that likes themes to make it easier. I’m already drawing the calendar pages per month, I don’t want to have to spend all day thinking about what flower to draw, too! Check out MORE Free Art here.   Want to learn hand lettering?

  Hey guys, so for this year I really wanted to focus on contemporary writers. That is– writers that are living and currently making poetry, not just the writers that we all already know about.   I want to introduce you guys to some of the awesome writers I follow through social media that just need some more general air time.   One of the first instagram writers I ever followed was Christopher Poindexter. He’s totally a hipster, or whatever you want to say. But his poetry is amazing, sweet, and real. I’ve been wanting to illustrate some of his words for a long timeRead More →

  It’s 2018. And January. Which means that old crap we were doing a month ago has to get gone. I don’t know about you, but I’m always ready for a new year to start. I’m excited for all the resolutions I may break.   This year I’m kinda doing something different though. It’s not about setting resolutions as much as trying to stay positive, relax, and let things come. One major thing for me this year is the confidence and positivity.  So with that, affirmations. Coloring pages, relaxing, and guilty pleasure shows.   Enjoy with me 🙂   Check out MORE Free Art here.Read More →
