spoken words fade

What does the silent one have to say? Nothing.
What does he have to offer? The world.
-J.C. Cheng

“I think that the best thing we can do for our children is to allow them to do things for themselves, allow them to be strong, allow them to experience life on their own terms, allow them to take the subway… let them be better people, let them believe more in themselves.”

—   C. JoyBell C. (via observando)

“I will not apologize for loving you, rather,
I will apologize to myself for believing you
felt the same way in return.”

Please don’t get tired of me.

It happens every time. People lose interest in me. They get tired of me. Suddenly, they don’t bother hitting me up anymore. The conversations become shorter. They forget about me and I just become a distant memory. I wonder if it’s my fault sometimes. But then I realize that people never stay in my life. And there’s nothing I can do about it.

Wolf Guts for Bi-Weekly Challenge

This week’s challenge was to choose a fairy tale by the Grimm Brothers, and I had a few top picks but at the end of the day I couldn’t resist doing Little Red Cap.  In the Grimm Brothers version of the story, the wolf is cut open to get Little Red Cap and her grandmother out, and heavy stones are put inside before he’s sewn back up.  When he wakes up, he can’t move from the weight and dies.

I started by doing a few quick thumbnails on paper, then I scanned in the one I liked best and did the sketch digitally.  I prefer to sketch digitally because I can flip, rotate, copy and paste at will— saves a lot of time!  Then I printed the sketch out at full size (12”x22”) and lightboxed it on to watercolor paper.  (At this point, I wasn’t entirely sure whether I was going to paint this or do colors digitally so I wanted to keep my options open.)  Once I started rendering it out with graphite, I decided to proceed with colors digitally because I wanted to maintain a feeling of depth with lighting.

Thinking social anxiety is cute is like saying:

convertingtolight:

Excessive sweating is cute.
Dry mouth is cute.
Physically shaking is cute.
Blacking out is cute.
Nausea is cute.
Heart palpitations are cute.
Chest pain is cute.
Shallow breathing is cute.
Hot flushes are cute.
Forgetting how to talk is cute.
Humiliating yourself is cute.

It’s not adorable little shy giggly girls with pretty skirts & flowers in their hair.
