my Instagram best nine 2018 has me feeling so grateful

You know what time it is! #bestnine2018 time is upon us, and mine was pink as hell.

A couple things on here are surprises, because they felt like they were actually done soooooo long ago. I’m looking at you, pink octopus and Iris Apfel. It’s just a testament to how much I’ve done this year. Drawing every day for a year will do that I guess!

I’m also happy that my grid is filled with personal work AND commissions, this year I made my first dolla billz from my art and I’m so grateful to have that opportunity.

I’m also pleased that the cherry blossom twig made it in, since I made this piece specifically to be auctioned off for a charity that does amazing work for women in crisis.

Some days making something is the only thing that makes me happy. I can be feeling really shitty, but then I look down and I’ve drawn something so pink and cute that I feel lifted.

Thank you to every single one of you who likes, comments, and gives a shit about my work. You have no idea how much it means to me. And if you’re not already following me on Instagram, I’ll just leave this right here for you.

2018 was wild. 2019, we’re going to have some fun... lets go.

Ok I didn’t mean for this to be a mushy post about gratitude, but here we are. No YOU’RE crying! 💖😭💖
