Hi hi friends!
Woot for creativity, #paccreativechaos, & link-ups to creatively draw a portrait.
But first … let’s check in.
How’s hump day treating yah?! Of course I hope it’s grand and colorful! But whatever it is, GAMBARE! 👯✨
Let your creativity & passion pull you through! You got this. 💗💗💗
Welp! The meat & potatoes are here! Let’s talk about this portrait …
Since this is my first time linking up with the Peace & Chaos fam, let me tell you how it works ~
How Creative Chaos Works:
Creative Chaos is a monthly creative challenge that anyone can join. (Click to Tweet.)
On the first of each month I’ll share a post that describes the challenge and how to participate, as well as a few of my favourite creations from the previous challenge.
Then near the end of the month there will be a link-up that participants can use to share their creations. Keep reading ~
About My Portrait
Just last month, I found Cole’s blog. I became excited after checking out her creative link-ups (‘cuz I’m a creep like dat! 🙌). Since I have goals for self improvement through blogging, I decided to use her creative link-ups as creative prompts to challenge myself.
tip: No matter your level or ability in art, I would HIGHLY encourage this. It’s great brain exercises for creatives!
Unfortunately, I realized I wouldn’t be able to take part. So I vowed that I would take part this month. But then I read that I’ll have to draw a portrait … 👀
oh joy ~ 😁😓
disclaimer: I loathe drawing, though it doesn’t seem that way 😇
Since I’m not getting paid for this … there goes that motivation 😹😹😹
So I had to out in my thinking cap and find motivation and creative ways to make this enjoyable for me.
Portrait Motivation & Inspiration
Things that swirled around in my head all month while considering things (YES! I typically draw & create in my head as prelim) were:
- back piece
- more wabori (Japanese style tattoo) inspired art (check out my collaboration print with CRANK)
- wanting to include a million lines
- wanting to use this stunning picture I cane across while doing my Instagram Fabulous group assignment that I want to use (THANK YOU Dreamy Dwellings!)
I think that’s about it that I cared about. I didn’t figure out how to put everything together until the 9th hour. Hooray for artist block, a cluttered brain, and good ol’ procrastination to pull yah through!
But here’s my portrait!
Unfortunately, I didn’t document from start to finish. Hence my semi-start to finish comment from my daily tattoo blog. (… in case you were over there kicking it ^^)
BUT I did get to snapchat some flicks.

A MILLION THANKS, Cole, for hosting such an awesome link-up. I am already looking forward to next month!
Friends, Thanks for looking. I hope you enjoyed! And if you want to tap into your inner artist, I hope you’ll consider joining next month.
