Bea’s Features

Quite often I’ll find myself scouring the net in search of art. In fact, I spend almost as much time looking at other people’s artwork as I do making my own. So today, I’ll sharing with you five artists along with three of their works that I adore! Also, feel free to click their names to be directed to their individual websites.

Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the Feature 😀

Medders– I usually look for artists whose work inspires, and motivates me, and each of them do so in their own distinct ways. What I love most about Medder’s style  is the loose, sketchiness of his paintings. It’s my belief that a sketch is the soul of your work, and often times has more character than the final piece does. In his own way, from what I can see, Medder’s has a style that maintains the essence of his sketch, which I believe enhances the beauty of his work.


GDBee– Not only does she have a very charming style, but GDbee Is amazing when it comes to composing colors–My favorite of hers being the 2nd one, of the beautiful young girl with Vitiligo. Overall, I can’t felt but feel uplifted and joy, upon seeing the vivid colors at play in GDbee’s work!


Yoann-Lossel– Words cannot describe just how enchanted I am by Yoann’s art. That ghostly dark image with shimmering hints of gold just gives me chills. Even with such a simple color pallet he brings everything together so well. What I wouldn’t do to see his work in person. I would just get lost in it for hours!


Saimain– I met Saimain through a challenge I was hosting from my Journal on Deviant Art. She won, and got a free sketch out of my 30 day challenge, and I drew one of her characters. What’s so cool about her is that she has all these stories, that she creates art for. She’s such a creative individual, a wonderful storyteller, and I can’t help but admire just how driven she is, so to support her, I recently became one of her Patreons on Patreon.com.


Skirtzzz– Has a way of drawing that is whimsical and sexy, and I love every bit of it! Not to mention her line quality is beautiful, and not only does she draw– but she does amaaaazing cosplay. I saw her Princess Peach cosplay a long time ago, and later ran into her work on Deviantart, and was like “Why am I not following this woman >_<!” So glad I found her work again so I can stalk her, lol! I also became her Patreon recently as well, as I want to support the artists I admire.


Honorable Mentions

I really really really…Really REALLY wanted to show Little Bird, an illustrated poem by Moosekleenex– however it was too large to feature in this format. So, as an honorable mention, I encourage you to check it out, and experience the epic feels!


 Since this is a post about features, I’d also like to introduce what I will now refer to as my

A-Team

And noooo I dont mean the show, so I wont be running around rocking a fro-hawk with gold chains dripping down my neck. To be honest I would have said B Team, but….I like A, so,  it is what it is. I regret nothing!

So what is the A Team? Well often times you’ll hear me mention Justin or Zygona on my blog. Just like me, they are both aspiring artists, we all went to school together, and Justin has literally become my right hand man, and Zygona my right hand woman… which just puts me on the left, I guess >_

Hope you enjoyed the Feature, and likewise found new artists to follow– till next time, Enjoy!

Thursday Evening Post

set and reach goal concept

What do I always tell myself when the going gets rough? A challenge aint a challenge unless it’s a challenge. This week, I’ve been having a lot of those days where I wake up, and all I want to do is go back to sleep…and then I do it, wake up again….annnnd back to sleep. So, my energy is pretty shot right about now, just being honest! Even so, I made a commitment to myself, and to this blog to post on Mondays and Thursdays.

I dont always know what I’m going to say, sometimes circumstances get in the way, but by golly this girl is gonna find something to post to share with you guys! Like Will Rogers said– “Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” so lets get into this thing!

It’s always been a clear goal of mine when I made this blog to use it as a means to give back to other creative thinkers and artists, so I’ve been making an effort in siting my sources of inspiration, as of way of giving credit where it’s due. Not only that, I want to give back to other bloggers, and share their art, their poetry, writings, quotes– share what it means to me, how it inspired me, how it can inspire you, and just generally help them shine. Eeeeeasier said than done though. There’s a lot of background work to be considered– like finding the artists, and knowing HOW to feature them. Ultimately, I don’t want to “half-a$$” it. I love artists, I respect the work they do, so it’s worth the effort to do it right. So, again I’m taking my time to find the artist, study their work, what I like about it, and I’m building a structure that I can use to feature their work on.

Some of you who follow my blog, may be more experienced at it than me, so I welcome you to give me some tips, share your opinions on what you might like to see in the features. I’m more than happy to learn and grow from you :D.

With that said, it’s March, which means it’s time for another update of–
