I started working on some font stuffs. I'm really pushing to make my next year's portfolio as original as possible, starting with the creation of my own lettering. Of course I've never made my own font, so this is very new, and quite difficult. Luckily for me, this little Wacom of mines is easy to use and I've got a clear idea of what my aesthetic is going to be, flowers and soft simple things won't be so hard. At least not now. 

Forgive the poor quality, its a growing/learning process. 
All the lovely things will come to light in due time.

I was given the opportunity to photograph a lovely little friend of mine, we went on an adventure to the old LA zoo and it was amazing. The empty cages, forgotten paths, and memories of what once was, was incredibly cool and we even got to see a little Shakespeare in the Park. Armed with my camera, a homemade filter for my lens, and a plastic baggie (for the ghosty white washed images) I photographed a pretty important element in my life, dreaming.

My dreams have always been quite bizarre, probably due to my over active imagination and child like understanding of the very scary things in this world. Growing up, my biggest fear was being lost and alone in an unfamiliar place with unknown elements. It haunted my dreams, and even after waking up I always felt that dreadful feeling. Though now I find it as an adventure, as a kid I was terrified. Now, I possess bravery in the face of the unfamiliar and unknown, but sadly I still cower at the thought of being alone in this world. My dreams will always be dark and I will always wake up feeling that dreadful feeling until I conquer this fear. This shoot is a testimony, serving as reminder of what it is I must overcome.

Lianne La Doll is almost complete! She's one of five in my series of paper dolls that I soon hope to complete, cut out, assemble, and frame. Each artist I illustrate is for me an inspiration and representation of natural beauty. With each woman being an artist of my generation, I hope these paper dolls inspire little ladies to embrace every aspect of their natural beauty and grace.
