This week one of my favorite artists, Victoria Ying, started a #7DaysOfColor Challenge over @instagram.

Every day of the week is assigned one of the colors of the rainbow. The objective of the challenge is to upload a drawing every day using the color of the day as subject matter. To spice things up for myself I made the week ”Audrey Hepburn Week” using her different dresses as inspiration! 

Here is the set! enjoy~

Artsy Update

It’s been a week since En Voyage got funded and it feels pretty great!! 

I’ve spent this week (and the one before) testing the waters — trying new materials, getting sketchbooks, Light boxes, paints, adjusting my schedule— and I can say with confidence I’ve got my process figured our (Or most of it) so far. 

Here is what my life will be for the next three months:


It was very VERY very tough at first, but I realized I’ve been a lot more productive during the day/afternoon with this new schedule (I just need to work on not missing the gym >_>)

I feel accomplished at the end of every day and I’m sure that, as long as I stick to this schedule, I will be able to finish En Voyage (and other jobs) in no time! :D 

Thanks for reading <3

Hey guys,

I never really had a chance to express how unbelievably happy I was with the movie adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars, specially when I was so nervous/excited about it

Gosh- I cried. I laughed and then I cried A LOT more. I finally understood what John Green was trying to tell us: You can tell how much love and care every single person of the crew put on this movie. I truly appreciated the respect they had for the source material, something you rarely see these days.

The movie overwhelmed me with happiness, specially when they were in Amsterdam. As some of you know, I went to Amsterdam last year and I absolutely loved it (my current project includes some of what I saw there). The movie made me wish I could go back and live there for the rest of my days— it truly is a MAGNIFICENT city that you MUST experience for yourself. 

I’m super proud of the VlogBrothers and Nerfighteria for making this happen, and I could not be more happy for John Green, I bet this is more than a dream come true. Thank you, John, thanks for the little happiness :)
