I’ve had this one done for a while but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to add more to it. I think I’m happy with it now though, even though it’s obviously more minimal than most of my other work. I hope you all like it anyway💕

I haven’t been feeling inspired lately so I’m going through old thumbnail sketches I did for my design class last semester and fleshing them out!!
Ive been working lately- Working on cheeky self limiting beliefs. I have a sign in my home that reads, ’Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion’
You are the universe in ecstatic motion. How powerful is that?! @stampington seems to agree!
Last year I hosted a small brunch for female entrepreneurs in Prince George- Today, that experience was published in a magazine, in a 3 page spread. Photographs, a teaser on the front feature page, and an article by yours truly.
🤘 @Minglemagazine is a visually delicious magazine based out of California, and is focused on celebrating creative ideas and event planning! The pages truly leave behind a vivid desire to party plan with new found unique, and beautiful ideas!
When this idea was only a seed, I scribbled on a notepad... different thoughts to blend together a stylized photoshoot and business morning, North Soul style. My goal was to see it published- And here we are friends.
Take this not so subtle hint that you're reading right now and do something today to tap in your inner genius!
Let's bust through some faulty logic and let go of approval (yuck!) so we can embrace who were meant to be, ya? #LevelUp
Another start to end journey of a drawing, this time of the 1983 Peter Davison Doctor Who story 'Snakedance'. For some reason I cannot remember, there aren't any in-development pictures of the Dojjen character, just the end product 🤔
I'm doing a portraiture class. Portraits have always been my passion, but somewhere along the line I lost confidence in my ability to do them. The course I'm on is all about developing a personal approach; I don't want to emulate any one practice or style, I ultimately want to be self-assured enough in my practice that when you see one of my pictures, you'll know immediately that it's an Inkpen.
Posted some stickers on my site 🥰

Such a special #commission to work on with my dear friends - remaking a sentimental, treasured copper ring that they had found together in Argentina when they first started dating, which also was used as his engagement ring - and recreating a more durable version in 14k gold that will last forever.

Creo que la influencia de Gustav Klimt en mis ilustraciones es más que clara que nunca. Aún recuerdo cuando viajé a Viena para ver a su Judith y a su Palas Atenea, siguen erizándome la piel como el día en que las descubrí.
No pretendo llegar a su nivel, obviamente es algo no-imposible, pero sí muy difícil. De momento me conformo en transmitir la misma delicadeza, sensualidad y majestuosidad de sus obras en cada uno de mis trazos.
Aquí os dejo un fragmento del proceso de uno de mis últimos trabajos, Liz. La fragilidad, que no es sinónimo de debilidad.
I know. Huge question. A life time of work. The tone, cadence, language of our inner dialogue is a journey that never ends. But this question needs to be considered even in its magnitude. For all of my life I was kept hostage by my inner voice. She was an opposing force to my creative life. I was constantly having to fight her. I knew what I truly desired but every thought that ran through my mind told me that I was undeserving, lazy, foolish, not enough, an Imposter, too young.
When I started journaling, I saw on the page my internal dialogue, strewn out in long, aggressive, cyclical sentences. So I started introducing a new voice. Intentionally. I still allowed myself to spew out the pain, the skepticism, the depression and shame. But I always made the choice to include a new voice, one who said things like this: ‘you are deserving of a life full of delight.’ ‘There are people out there who need what you are creating.’ ‘You are not foolish for doing what your heart calls for.’ ‘It is not entitled to ask for what you desire. It is brave’.
And as the ink immortalised this new way of thinking, it slowly, slowly started sinking into my internal dialogue too. I felt the words I wrote in silence, speak up audibly in my own mind, defending myself from the inner critic’s attacks. I had a weapon, and I was learning how to wield it. Several years after starting my practise, I still have an inner dialogue who will occasionally harass me. Today, I’m harassing myself for reading out my journal on my ig stories, ‘no one wants to hear that’ she says. But then I breath, and reply, ‘I choose to share vulnerably and intuitively. Always. If it has the chance to resonate with someone else, then I share.’ How does your inner monologue support your inner artist? Your inner child? You? I would love to hear about your journey with this. And if you’d like to start journaling, I have my Compendium in my bio, shes filled with dozens and dozens of prompts and a gentle helping hand as you get a handle on the way you talk to yourself. Sending you lots of love. Amie x #amwriting#artistsofinstagram#writersofinstagram#writers#muse#bookdoula#journaling#morningpages
