[01.04.2016] International Autism Day 2016

mindfull_autismday2016_web

 

In honor of  International Autism Day today, I made this illustration, where I tried to capture the feeling of being autistic, of having a million worlds inside your head and being unable to express even 0.000000000001% of what you see in it. Autistic people are people too, and I want to support awareness for this issue, so it will be seen not as something that needs a cure, but rather as a difference that needs acceptance.

En honor al Dia Internacional del Autismo, he hecho esta ilustración, donde intenté expresar el sentimiento del autista, el cual tiene un millón de mundos y pensamientos en su mente, pero no es capaz de expresar ni un 0.000000000001% de lo que ve ahí. Las personas autistas son personas también, y quisiera apoyar esta causa, para que el autismo no siga siendo visto como algo que necesita una cura, sino mas bien, una diferencia que necesita aceptación.

[2016.03.30] St. George and the Dragon (commission)

Paul_StGeorge2016_web

After a month-long hiatus (*ahem* vacation), I’m back to work, and I’m starting with this piece of St. George and the Dragon (St. George is the patron saint of England). It’s part of a story about overcoming your own demons, especially the “demon” of despair. This was commissioned by my good friend, Paul Crouse, and it will be featured soon in his blog, as the artwork for one of his great articles. I’ll be posting the link to the article here once it’s out. Paul is a spiritual teacher and guide, but unlike a lot of “gurus” out there, he’s down to earth and incredibly funny! Be sure to check out his site as well 💜

It happened sometime this week, but I apparently have a bit over 150 followers on Instagram! Wow, I never thought I would have followers at all. Thank you so much to all who like my stuff and support it. It’s awesome to get support, really encourages me to keep going and pulls me through rough times. Lots of 💚💜💙 ~peccosa.

I decided to color the sketch I made for @caracasteaco as a way to continue to improve my digital art skills. It took a long time to finish this piece, because it was a sort of experiment, but I learned a whole lot. I think the next digital piece I make may go a lot faster ~

The original sketch for this piece is below, from this post of about a week ago.

Art Trade 2016

My sister started this tradition a few years ago of exchanging artwork with friends and family through Facebook, and so for this year’s contribution, I drew this picture for her fiancee ( my soon to brother-in-law), who was appointed to me as my “secret santa” person to give artwork to this year (well, the drawing is for both of them really!). Here’s the picture he gave me for the re-draw:

I just posted it on the group we use to trade pics on Facebook, and he said he loved it! yay 😀

Merry Xmas and Happy 2016!

I spent most of today trying to finish it before midnight, so it’d be posted on the 21st still, as a Solstice offering.

Well, it’s 23:55 now, so I guess I made it, woohoo! 😀

Merry Xmas everybody!

And have an amazing 2016: year of the monkey 🐒

Much love,

– A.

I’ve had Sam’s songs stuck in my head for a while now. He’s quickly become one of my favorite singers. I listed to the album on repeat the whole time I was drawing this (3.5 hours aprox.)

He’s just so adorable, I couldn’t resist drawing him! 😻💜
