Hello everyone!
    It feels like I have been away from the castle forever. I have a few assignments to turn in.

Class/Challenge: Head Mistress Challenge, The Burrow
House: Slytherin
Project: Cupcake painting

I always find the kitchen to be the warmest welcoming place in my home or my friends homes and what better way to make it nice and charming than with a cute cupcake painting

Class/Challenge: Floo: Silent Evolution Coral Reef
House: Slytherin
Project: watercolor seascape

This painting was inspired by the  colors of the sea.

Class/Challenge: Holiday Challenge: Welcome Feast
House: Slytherin
Project: Hobby Lobby $3 challenge painting

This Thanksgiving painting would be great on a holiday table and art is always something to share. This was a pre-printed canvas kit from hobby lobby that was already incredibly inexpensive but I got it for %50 which made it only $2 It came with some little paints and a tiny paint brush and I tried top use those for the most part but half way through gave up and used my Arteza acrylic paints as well. Ill be doing a lot of things like this because I am taking a stab at an art YouTube channel. I know I like to watch people who do challenges like this on YouTube so hopefully I can make some videos people will want to watch too.  I have this one on video but I havent quite finished editing it yet. I have the cupcake painting in a video too. As soon as they are ready to be seen Ill post links here to show my process.

Class: House Pride
House: Slytherin
Project: Monstera Leaf Modern Art. I imagine this as a sketch for a large painting in a boutique hotel or something. Anyway, House Pride because its green like Slytherins house colors.

Class: House Unity
House: Slytherin
Project: neon punk card. Sending letters to your friends is a great thing to promote house unity!

Class: February Detention
House: Slytherin
Project: mixed media paintings
In my quest to free myself up artistically and fill up my sketchbook I have been trying to use stuff Ive had around but never really tried. These paintings are with Jane Davenport matte acrylic paints I think they are meant for art journaling, but I LOVE them. They go on paper so smooth and are kind of translucent so you can layer them in awesome ways. They dry super smooth and with a texture similar to the paper itself so they are really easy to draw on top of.

Class: HoM
House: Slytherin
Project: Therapuetic tactile art experience. As with the theme thats developing in my posts, this project was all about getting my hands in some paint and just enjoying that process out of self love. This was fun because my mom is a teacher so sometimes there will be the most interesting art stuff lying around her school, and I was helping her the other day and spotted a silicone printing fish. Where else would you find one of those but in an elementary school? What resulted was a very fun, relaxing, and tactile experience. Very stress relieving.

Class: muggle studies
House: Slytherin
Project: Mandala Greeting Card
This is made out of paper but also I like to thing that the lines in a mandala are kind of twisted together.

Class: SoAR
House: Slytherin
Project: Greyscale fox drawing: This little guy turned out so cute I decided to make a series of animals like him.

Class: Transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Project: Mind cleansing doodle: again with the theme of using art as therapy I used cool and calming colors for this doodle and just relaxed into it. It helped me to stay focused on positive things.

Class: Divination
House: SLytherin
Project: Tattoo Rose Greeting Card
I love gel pens and the ones I have right now are super bold on black paper.

Class: Flying
House: Slytherin
Project:Sketchbook drawings
One thing I have been doing is challenging myself to fill up a sketch book really fast like in the space of a few weeks. This way I am forced to draw more and increase my skill to new heights. Here are a few of those pages:

Class: Herbology
House: Slytherin
Project: Dark Arcades gel pen art. This was inspired by a song called Dark Arcades by Blaqk Audio and it was made in honor of someone I love.

Class: Care Of Magical Creatures
House: Slytherin
Project: Drawing inspired by the song End Transmission by AFI. This song has helped me get through some of the deepest sad.

Class: Charms
House: Slytherin
Project: Healing Garden Botanical Illustration: This is one my favorite projects Ive done recently. Through all of the anxiety and stress over the past few weeks I have been watching art youtubers and Skillshare classes for hours. It has been better than medication really. One of the skillshare classes was on botanical illustration based on going to a botanical garden. This illustration is from the healing garden at the cancer center ErinAquaheart goes to. I feel really safe there because its always quiet and cool even on hot days, so when our cancer journey gets intense I can go there to kind of ground myself and deal with my emotions.

Class: DADA
House: Slytherin
Project: Daffodils tattoo and practice sketches. This is the Best tattoo I did before I left, it looks creepy because its on a pig ear. As I learned how to tattoo I learned how to prepare for them so this project includes my practice sketches from which I eventually picked the daffodils and then finally tattooed them after practicing drawing flowers over several days

Ok, I hope you can forgive my giant project dump, I have had a really rough few months, but I have been creating things. Especially since I left my tattoo apprenticeship because I used art to sort of re-boot my brain. Seriously, it was so bad that my therapist diagnosed me with acute post traumatic stress from the whole thing. Anyway, on to happy creative things, and there are some tattoo related projects here too because a.) Im proud of that new skill and b.) Im on the mend and I am looking at new apprenticeships so this isnt the end of my story as a tattooist.

Class: Alchemy
House: Slytherin
Project: heart gem stone tattoo design

This was drawn on my iPad Pro on procreate

Class: Apparition
House: Slytherin
Project: gel pen abstract
Like I said earlier I have been going through some hard times and I believe in the power of art and color so I made this bright colored abstract piece with gel pens because it was so nice to just color with them. I made it to put on my bedroom door as a visual mood lifter.

Class: Arithmancy
House: Slytherin
Project: Lotus Blossom Sketch
These fit the prompt because of the flowers.

Class: Astronomy
House: Slytherin
Project: My first tattoo
This fits the prompt because a tattoo machine and tattoo ink were definitely new to me.

Hello all!
I know I have been MIA this term. I have had a very hard few months and I am glad to have some time ahead of me to come back home to hogwarts and have some craft therapy. I wont go into a lot of detail but I will say: No matter how bad you want something dont stay in a toxic environment, dont let people wear you down by constantly abrading you with negativity because they arent as creative as you are, you have a right to express your talents without other people shooting them down.

Ill start by sharing my To Do list for the To Do list challenge:
1-5. Drawings to improve my portfolio, as I hinted at before the tattoo shop I was at for several months was a very toxic environment and now I am looking for another one. I am going to take my time to find a good fit and try to grow as an artist like I should have been allowed to do with the first half of the year. This will take up 5 places on the list because each drawing with take a lot of work. If they are bigger I will turn them in one at a time if they are smaller I will turn in a few at a time.

6. Finish my rock album. I have been working on this for years and now I am so close! I am going to take the time I have off from tattoo work to focus hard on this.

7. Art pieces to go with my art album: I have this dream for my record release event where people come to an art show of an art series related to the album and then I get to perform the album at the art opening. Getting the art series done is a big part of making this dream a reality.

8-11. Get back into sewing. These will most likely be garments, maybe performance costumes for the above dream. Maybe a textile art piece.

12. Screen printing for my band. Shirts/patches

13. Make an art YouTube channel.

14. Get some paintings done on canvas.
