Writing:

A couple exciting writerly things happened this month:

  • Smoke Rings on Artists' Row, my contemporary Leonardo da Vinci/Michaelangelo retelling, got a new title: The Year of Splattered Paint. I was also super bored one night and made a cover for it:


  • My high fantasy WIP, Shadows from the Future (aka my small baby), reached 100 pages! *THROWS ALL THE CONFETTI* Of course, it's still nowhere near done, but this is nevertheless an exciting milestone! Would anyone like to see some celebratory snippets? 
Drawing:

My new friend Julia is president of Art Club at our school, and they're making some cute little "business" cards to hand out to drive membership next year. I've gone with Julia to a couple of meetings, and the moderator evidently thought I had joined (lmao nope) and gave me a bunch of cards to decorate??? So I spent all night last Tuesday doing that. Here they are:


It's literally the first time I've done anything remotely art-like (other than coloring) since like January, and it was surprisingly fun.

Changing:

  • My Tumblr design! I found a new theme that works much better on mobile, and I just like having a fresher, newer look.
  • MY HAIR COLOR ASDFGHJKL. It's now partially blue.
when u feel cute taking the selfie but hate it within two seconds of posting

So, what have you all been up to this month? Any fabulous reads, new music, or projects? Comment below, and have an epic day. :)

Namarië,
Ellie

  5. HOLY SH*TBALLS ELLIE YOUR HAIR. I love it! (though that was what I wanted for my hair next year tbh but ya.)

    Ooh, good book title! The one I'm currently working on doesn't exactly have a title yet, but so far I have 23 pages done lol.

    I've been listening to the new PTV album that came out two weeks ago, not that great. *shakes head in disappointment* Vic Fuentes could've done better, like Collide with the Sky. WE ALSO FINISHED TESTING HALLELUJAH. And, finally, I've been obsessed with musical.ly lately, so yeah. (if you ever get a chance to get it go follow me at @vicfuentes84)

    1. AHH THANKS. Don't feel like you can't get it on account of me! I'll have to dye it back when next school year rolls around anyway because my school has a rule against unnatural hair coloring. (If it doesn't fade away before; the color is highly temporary.)
      Thanks! It took me literally forever to get to 20 pages?!?! I can't wait to see it/hear what it's about. :)
      Oh dear. Don't you hate when stuff is a disappointment like that? PTX's latest album was kind of like that for me - usually I love EVERY SINGLE THING they sing, but aside from a few really good ones the album overall was pretty meh.
      Yayyy congrats! Does this mean you're out of school now?

  6. Those business cards were cuuute!

    100 pages? That's pretty good (considering the fact that I can barely make it past one). Just kidding. But seriously -_-

    I've lately been sleeping in until 10am (SO MUCH FUN), reading The Roar (very cool book so far. All futuristicy and stuff), and baking muffins (because muffins).
