Inspired: Poster Design for West Side Story

I was scrolling through Tumblr and came across this lovely poster design for West Side Story by Noni from bonny-notion! I fell in love with it right away! It has that vintage feel, yet it's so appealing. It looks like the perfect book cover. This should be the official poster for the musical. It is law.

** Edit: Oh my gosh, I just reached 50 followers over here! Thank you guys so much! Let's get to a hundred soon? **

The Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers by bloggers. It is a way to acknowledge each other and say “you’re doing a great job”. It is for blogs with 200 or less followers, so it’s also a great way to spread the word about smaller blogs and get them more readers and followers!
When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person(s) who nominated you. You pass the Award onto 11 other blogs (make sure you tell them you nominated them!) and ask them 11 questions. You’re not allowed to nominate the blog(s) who nominated you!

Moodboard Mondays: Say WAAAT?!

Hi guys! It's been a while since I posted my last moodboard, but hey! I finally found my moodboard style! So what's "in" for me this week?
  • I'm still suffering from quite the PCD, aka Post Camp Depression. I miss all the friends I've made dearly and all the fun we've had. {I vividly remember sleeping in the lobby of the venue during the last night. Hehe}
  • Saw Wreck It Ralph last week! IT WAS AMAZING. The concept....I can't even express how genius it was. Don't get me started on the Paperman short before it. It was too adorable for my life. {You can probably expect some fanart soon, especially of Vanellope. Such a cutie pie!}
  • Guess who officially started watching Doctor Who!
  • My sister and I are quite obsessed with making friendship bracelets at the moment. We have a whole box of strings and we love experimenting with different patterns.

The Guardian of Dreams

I am finally back! Back from the land of people and adventure. I had a lovely mini-vacation, and I am glad to be back in the blogging world! First off, I would like to say thank you for all your lovely comments on my Gravity Falls artwork. It really means a lot! 

Anyway, here's a piece I worked on recently. It's the Sandman {aka Sandy} from the upcoming Dreamworks film, Rise of the Guardians. The Sandman is the Guardian of Dreams. This is traditionally drawn and colored with colored pencils and markers.
