Hello friends! I'm a 21-year-old Canadian art student, and this is where I throw some of the fanart I do in my free time.
I read all of your messages with a big smile but I only reply to anons every once in a blue moon because I don't wish to spam people, so if you want a quick reply please go off anon. Thanks!

Anonymous: Hey, I just saw your mermaid drawings and I was thinking that if you're ever bored or super lacking creative ideas, I'd love to see you draw some plus-sized mermaids. Because you can never have enough plus-sized mermaids.

YES! I’ll paint some sometime in the very near future!

there’s absolutely no point to this post, I just got a new lipstick and wanted to post a selfie that’s all

Winter Soldier  Commission 
30.5cm x 45.7cm gouache and acrylic on watercolour paper

The next person who commissions a Winter Soldier painting will be asked to paint the metal arm themselves. Same goes for the billion stupid straps and belts (I’m just kidding - it was fun to try and figure out, it just took a long time is all!)

I’m really digging this colour palette challenge thing that everybody is doing. If I could do digital art I’d be all over that, instead I’m sitting here in the stone age like, shuffling papers around, knocking paintbrushes over 

here’s the pile of commissions I’m working on, up to and including a custom painted ukulele! Hopefully I can get these all done by next Saturday before I leave for more travelling!

here’s a picture of me feeding avocado to my cat. He likes fruit and veggies and won’t eat most meats. Sometimes he’ll lick tuna juices and every now and again he MIGHT eat a piece of chicken but mostly he likes strawberries and avocado. He also really loves perogies and cheese buns and especially likes cantaloupe. He’s a funny little guy.

NEVER SAY I DIDN’T LOVE YOU

on an extremely related note, I’ll have really sporadic internet for a little while here so if you absolutely need to contact me then email is the way to go 

ask and you shall receive - a tutorial on how I made these decoupage superhero shoes
My friend is going to a comic expo next month and asked if I could make her Captain America themed shoes, so here we go:

image

SUPPLIES:
1. acrylic paint
2. mod podge 
3. cut out pictures 
4. shoes (obviously)
5. two paintbrushes - one for glue and one for paint
6. scissors 
7. snacks (very important)

FIRST STEP:
imagecut out shapes that fit on your shoe. You’ll have to fiddle around with it and the paper will get wrinkly and you might get frustrated and accidentally glue a piece to your hair (or maybe that was just me), but make sure the pieces all fit on the shoe

NEXT:
imageimagemake sure you really coat the pieces in a ton of glue and stick them down where you want ‘em
image

seriously, lots of glue. Use your paintbrush to paint glue OVER TOP of the pieces you already glued down. if your fingernails aren’t covered in glue for 3 days then you’re doing it wrong

NEXT:

imageafter you’ve finished gluing down everything where you want it, give the entire shoe another good coating and eat your snack while you wait for it to dry 

NEXT:
imagethis is where your other paintbrush comes in. to really finish off the shoes and give them a cleaner look, paint a border around the edges. 
imagehowever if you’re patient and not a walking tornado of mess like me then you can cut and glue the pieces to leave a clean edge

LAST STEP:
because Mod Podge is water based it will run if it gets wet. I used Mod Podge waterproof acrylic sealer in matte to seal the shoes. Do this step outside because it’s super toxic! 

LAST LAST STEP:

model your killer heels (or the killer heels you made for your friend that you tried on and went grocery shopping in so you hope she doesn’t see this post)

TA DAH

so basically I saw these really cool superhero decoupage shoes and wondered if I could make my own. It was pretty easy actually! I just took an old pair of heels, some comics, and mod podge

(unfortunately my poor friend had to watch me document the whole thing through snapchat) I’m going to be making another pair for her soon so I’ll upload a tutorial if people are interested

Sorry about the blurry picture quality - my camera isn’t very good

edit: okay I fixed this post, see new version below -spoiler alert for spn finale-
