Bringing in some moves and some Celia Vibes for the 2nd piece of the night.
@amaralanegraaln was the inspiration for this piece that was showcased for @itsthebronx ‘s event. And boy, was she a hit! .
I love that I had the opportunity to bring some Latina flavor to venue, and with Amara, 𝔸𝕪 𝕞𝕦𝕔𝕙𝕠 𝕤𝕒𝕓𝕠𝕣 !💃🏿✨

This drawing that I created gives me all types of Peg Bundy vibes. Maybe it’s all the leopard and half pinup-ed hair. When I saw Shaina‘s blue hair, I fell in love. yes this make up artist is extremely talented with a set of brushes, but what always leave me in awe is the crazy colors she puts on her hair. It makes me miss all of my the times I used to dye my hair. Shaina is the absolute sweetest, so I had no hesitation when starting this piece. I love when my illustrations make others happy and her reaction did not disappoint!
Catch you guys later,
Oh, and don’t forget to see more of my illustrations on my instagram, and you can see Shaina’s work on HERE. and her Youtube HERE.
I’ve never been one to call out sick out of work. I like to save my PTO days for important things—-like traveling. I must have miscalculated somehow because I now have 13 days of PTO that expire at the end of this month. How the hell did this happen?
I looked up a few flights to see where I could go at last minute’s notice.I had some interesting choices, but in the back of my mind all I kept thinking was..do I want to spend money or make money?
My first staycation was filled with both laziness and productivity all wrapped into one.
Let me explain.
I’ve been waking up late, and spending my sweet ass time on my couch, binge watching Parks & Recreation. I started to rewatch it, and two days in I’m already up to season 4. What is life? In my defense, at least I was drawing the whole time.
I ended up finishing 3 personal drawings and 2 commissioned illustrations. Yay me!
So naturally, I have to share with you guys. (the rest will be shared in their respective posts)
This pink haired beauty has me jealous with her cute little jean romper. I wish I could pull off cheeky little shorts like this, but the way my bum is set up (Kevin Hart voice)
She also makes me miss all of my colorful hair. I recently shared a collage on ig if you guys want to see it HERE. I’ve been thinking about purple hair a lot, but right now that’s not going to happen. I need to focus on keeping my hair healthy first!
I didn’t know that when I finished this piece I was going to be drooling over her shirt that way. Sometimes I surprise myself with the things I create, and the see-through blouse she’s rocking, needs to be in my closet, like yesterday!
It seems like most of my feed on my instagram is all about fitness at the moment. A lot of his to do with the fact that I went a following spree ever since I started to work out. Yes, you read that right. It’s been a long month, but I’m so happy I decided to take care of myself a little bit better.
I know I have some extra weight on me, but I honestly couldn’t care less. I wanted to better my health and for me to do that, I need to focus on making better choices. Plus all the extra endorphins has left me in such a great mood lately! Talk about win-win.
My dad is the perfect workout partner, we meet up after work do our best to keep each other motivated. We have the cutest little routine when it comes to working on our abs (or lack thereof) .
I drew this illustration in honor of this new chapter in my life. Though my butt looks nothing close to that (gooooals) Here’s to hoping it’s not just a stage, but a lifestyle change. Wish me luck guys….
and yes, after 25 squats, I walk away wobbling like bambi.

I absolutely love when I get fun and quirky commissions. Michellle wanted me to capture her on a unicorn float. It was such a fun concept that reminded me of an older illustration I did, see that HERE. I knew I had to give it a different spin.
Michelle is such a vibrant person and adding different shades of pink and browns like mauve and taupe and make it pop with hints of magenta and fuchsia. The color combo is something I definitely have to try again.
If you will like to order your own illustration you can see my rates and contact me HERE.
I was in the mood to try something different, and boy did that work out in my favor. When Buzzfeed’s Curly, posted up this image on his instagram, I just knew I had to draw it– and right on time for Pride!
Not only is he extremely charismatic, but a looker too! I wanted this drawing to express how vibrant his personality is. I added a lot of pink and blue tones to the lighting, and even debated if i should, but I just had to go with my gut. I absolutely love this piece and can’t wait to keep trying some new things!
Check out more illustrations on my instagram, and check out Curly’s web show “Pero Like” HERE.

Bloggers, there are everywhere. When you’re one yourself, you tend to gravitate to other bloggers, and they somehow become like your virtual little family—in a non creepy way of course.
One of the many personalities that I tend to follow on instagram is Taza from lovetaza.com. She’s about to burst out twins, and when I saw this most adorable picture of her eating fruit, I picked up my apple pencil and got to work.
This is only the second time I’ve drawn a pregnant woman, (see the first HERE) and I gotta say, I don’t hate it. Maybe I should start a series. (We’ll see, because I may just be brainstorming out loud here)
I love the colors I used, purple just always seems to sneak into my work somehow, how do you always do that purple?
I hope you guys like this illustration, and if you’re curious enough, she recently gave birth to two healthy girls, you can read that post HERE.
It’s been a hell of week. My brother is out of commission due to an accident. It’s been scary thinking about what if?
We’re all so grateful he’s alive. Right now he’s taking it slow since it’s time for healing.
This illustration came naturally, seeing as he had one dislocated toe that needed to snapped back into place, and a fractured ankle that we’re waiting for the selling to go down.
See you guys soon, it’s time to slow down a bit.
