Tried doing more collage over the holidays

I made the collage on the right, but the one on the left is kind of an accident. i was just trying to keep a picture and some scrap paper in my sketch book so i could make something later but i looks kinda cool like that.

Also the gold paint doesn’t really come out as nice on the scan

Pins and Needles
This drawing was inspired by that fact i am always sitting with my legs folded and getting pins and needles, i have pins and needles right now actually! I really never learn, my mum has been telling me off since i was little about sitting weird so that i dont get pins and needles.
Trying something new and using Adobe Illustrator to make vector illustration, and damn it is testing my patience. Super proud of those hands, i mean i know they aren’t perfect but i did them in vector so i think that deserves bonus points!!! Also getting corners to meet is driving me made, they always overhang! How do i fix that?
Also i was seeing what would happen if i filling the shapes even though they aren’t closed, and i quite liked how random it turned out.
The colour palette and style is influenced by Memphis Design movement :)

Made this collage of photos i took of a really nice sunset and rainbow awhile ago, but i made like ten versions and i had been starring at it for too long to decide which ones I liked, but I finally remembered to look back on it and i quite like this one.

I always liked these lyrics because i use chapsticks so often. I cannot live without them!

I stayed late(well later than usual till like6:30pm) at uni to get some photography done for an assigment, and i was really hungry so I caved when i saw a vending machine except thenn my kit kat got stuck!!
it was so sad, but then I got stubborn and i was like no machine i will not give up! So i decided i would put morree money in (i knew this was a high risk operation) with the plan of also buying the kit kat behind it. Except i only had a $5 note so i put that in. I press the code for the kit kat and it comes up with the message USE CORRECT CHANGE!!??!! what  the heck, im pretty sure you were built with a change compartment for a reason vending machine? So i couldn’t buy the kit kat and the only thing it would let me buy was the $5 pack of maltesers resulting in me spending a total of $7.80 in that machine :(.

The sad thing is just before i used the vending machine i thought about how i had been using vending machines a lot latley which was unusual because normally i treat this with great mistrust.

Cacti Queen
First portrait I’ve done in a while, and I’m pretty happy with it! First time i’ve used my watercolours to render details opposed to using watercolour pencils and going over with water.
I used references and added my own twist.
Used this photo for the girl and this photo for background.

I’ve been craving donuts for ages now thanks to all the Donut King advertisements on Spotify so I feel like I need this.
Inspired by the article about Jafflechutes in Frankie.
