Oh boy... Yes yes yes, this community is such an addiction... Youhou addictions all the way ! I'll just add this one next to dark chocolate & red wine <3
Eeeeeerrrr well actually the title is a lie... I do not dance... But this is something I do sometimes to relax. I draw dance movements with few lines. Some persons have yoga, I have dance doodles... Whatever, the other relaxing one is drawing cats, 100% relaxing effects !
Have you ever think of yours ideas like that ? Mine are like that all the time…
They always burst in at 3 a.m. (when you should be fast asleep) & most of the time I can’t just ignore them. I grab my ideas’ book & stay awake until I wrote the last tiny bit that will complete the whole thing. Well I said 3 a.m. but it’s mostly like that all the day too… Don’t misunderstand, I’m not complaining about having ideas, it’s great ! I’m just pointing out the fact that… It’s exhausting.
But it's great... and exhausting... great... exhaus... rraaaaaagh
“Many times I tried to reach Happiness... Until I realize... It has never been a destination. Happiness is a path.” My mom showed me a mail wrote by an anonymous that she received few months ago, it's called «Le Bonheur ». It gave me the basic idea for this Tiny Story. The author wrote about how we're waiting for happiness to come one day... We convince ourselves that we're gonna be happy when we'll be grown-ups, when we'll get married, when we'll have a pay rise, when we'll have children, when we'll get retired... Or simply happy when it's gonna be Friday night, Sunday morning, spring, summer... We think that we'll be happy when there will be no more difficulties to overcome, no more debts to pay, no more troubles. One day this person realized that all this obstacles were his/her life. That simple answer made him/her understand that there is no path that leads to happiness. Happiness is the path. Since that day he/she ceased to wait for better days, he/she creates them every weeks, every months by following that path. Sorry for that quality my scanner decided that today was its last day...
I've been experimenting new patterns recently & made this drawing to test them. I thought the different patterns might be useful, for REmix purpose.
Plus when I finished to draw the lady, I realized she reminds me a little of HelloLindsayyy :) Hope you don't mind Mademoiselle Lindsayyy !
"On the eleventh second of the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the eleventh year, the elephant's wish came true."
(and oh, how he flew…)
Here here, a little illustration for your Tiny Story Mademoiselle Dusty :)
I was (& still am) very "honorée" that you asked me to illustrate one of your Tiny Stories!
Once upon a time, there was The End.
So the Prince wanted so much to f... to marry the Princess that he kicked every villains' a*s in a blink & this Mesdames & Messieurs with his bright smile, without a single scratches... Many children & the happily ever after followed on the second blink...
