You’re amazing too, for being so nice <3 I cringe in horror at some of my old art, but I’m glad you enjoy what I do! Thanks for the support!

You’re super nice! *high five*
There’s a great promo going on in my shop - FREE SHIPPING & an extra $5.00 off! Holy smokes!
My new dress came today.
This illustration was done as school work some days ago. The teachers didn’t want anything realistic, they wanted us to make a big illustration in a very caricaturized way. Well, as you may see in my gallery, illustrations I do for fun are normally more realistic. And so I took this opportunity to try something completely different: I decided to try the style of an artist I admire a lot.
Abigail Larson is a great professional illustrator who does macabre works in a very nice style. I mean, I’m not fan of macabre stuff, like torn apart dolls possessed by ghosts, strange disgusting creatures that makes you feel sick after looking too much at it. But her stuff has a “clean” feeling. It’s beautiful, it’s gothic and doesn’t bring a dark dense cloud above you. That’s kinda rare. You don’t need to do something to make people feel bad, dirty, in order to fit “macabre and horror genre”.
Of course when I planned to do this I explained to her and asked HER PERMISSION (btw, she is a lovely person!).
(Because I think people should just start copying other artists stuff and posting all around the internet for fun.)
So that’s it.
Abigail, you’re capable of inspiring masses. Have that in mind.
You’ve been through a really hard year and I know how it feels. After I read your last post I thought maybe I should post this today. You may not believe in this, but normally very very bad times are followed of very very good ones. So be strong, this phase will soon be over and I believe the next one will be a great one. This are my sincere vows to your next year. Be strong!
I just want to cry, this is so touching, Heylenne! You’re a wonderful person yourself, and incredibly talented. I’m really, really flattered… beyond words. Thanks so much for such a great tribute! I wish you so much success and happiness in all your endeavors. Keep up the wonderful work! Thank you dear!
buffalokitty asked: i saw your post about 2013, and i have absolutely had a year (2011) like that and know how welcome a new year and a new start is! you are an incredible artist and you seem like a lovely person, and i wish you the absolute best turn around year in 2014.
Thanks so much. I hate to hear anyone went through anything similar but I’m hoping it gets better. Right now I just feel like I’m wading into a swamp and never coming out again…
this one time when i was seven i thought that i could talk to trees (because i had no friends), and i use to sit by them and say things and one day i was talking to my tree friend called kevin and this girl went up to me and said “are you talking to that tree, freak!” and i started crying and hugged on to the tree, and while she was laughing one of the branches fell on the girls head, thanks kevin.
So much love right now.
