Theme: Jungle
Title: Daughter of The Earth
For the jungle theme, I drew a character surrounded by tropical, colorful leaves and flowers. She is in a fetal position, as if the jungle gave birth to her.

For "gratitude", I Revisited my first audition song ever. As artists, the people who surround us can make or break us. I'm grateful for all the people who have supported me alone my creative journey and those who presently help to keep me sane and focused....onward from here. Check out the replay for the whole song and more singing. 😘😘😘

Theme: Time + Childhood
Title: The Carousel Never stops Turning

The idea I am illustrating here is: like the little girl we often look ahead to the future optimistically, and like the woman we look back at our past selves with nostalgia/mixed emotions etc...but the carousel never stops turning...You can't get off (to quote grey's anatomy ;P ). Life keeps going, things happen...and we become who we are despite our own (positive or negative) expectations. xHaley

Bonus, because sharing is caring. I started this during "Love" week, but abandoned it...so I pow pow pow'd it earlier this week after having a mishap with a bottle of ink--see, mistakes aren't always mistakes! :)

Happy accidents, right.

Theme: DREAMS
Here is the finished product of the dreamy girl I worked on in my sketchbook last week. She is engulfed in the universe of her dreams, blanketed by a cloud. I used ink, watercolor, acrylic, and paper collage.

Theme: Different Art Styles
Title: Now, You say You're Lonely
Medium:  Collage (from magazine pages)

I made collages all the time from old magazines when I was a teen and I would cover my bedroom walls in them. It was a fun little project to revisit collage for the "different art styles" theme! xHaley

Challenge: Death
Singing "Au Cimetiere" by Faure , Skip ahead to 6:18 for singing...technology problems before that! Eeeekk!

Translation:
 Happy who dies here.
 Like the birds of the field!
 His body, near his friends,
 Is laid in the grass amidst the songs. 
 He sleeps a good and rosy slumber
 Under the radiant sky.
 All those he had known, are come
 To bid him a long farewell.

 At his cross his parents weep,
 Resting on their knees,
 And his bones, underneath the flowers
 Are gently bathed in tears
 Each one on the black  wood,
 Can see whether he was young or not,
 and can, with sincere regrets
 call him by his name.

 How many unlucky ones are there
 who die at sea,
 And lie under the deep waves
 a long way from their beloved country!
 Ah! poor souls! who for their shrouds
 have green seaweeds,
 Where they roll unknown, quite naked,
 and their eyes wide open!

Theme: Loss
Title(s): Untitled.
So, this week +Maria Wahl  did a wonderful brainstorm scope about the theme and it gave me a lot of ideas about where to take this loss piece. The next day, +Elizabeth Ciccantelli  did a scope where she talked about loss. She mentioned that loss is part of the big picture (life), and how we shouldn't avoid all of those painful feelings that come with loss. I was inspired by both of these ladies this week! I felt like none of my ideas were flowing out clearly, but after giving it some thought the main thing I wanted to Illustrate was the ways that loss can effect us emotionally (sadness, greif, bitterness, anger, distraughtness, melancoly, etc.). So, I came up with these faces:

(I'm interested to know: what emotions, if any, do you see expressed in each face?)    xxHaley

Theme: Rebirth
Title: Mad Girls Love Song
For this theme, I had this crazy idea to illustrate a poem that reminded me of the theme. I decided to do visuals from the first-third stanza. This was my first attempt at making a "comic". I had a few 'oops' moments (coloring outside the lines) but I'm pleased with it overall and plan to do more of this style.
___________________________

Mad Girl's Love Song
"I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,
And arbitrary blackness gallops in:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed
And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

God topples from the sky, hell's fires fade:
Exit seraphim and Satan's men:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I fancied you'd return the way you said,
But I grow old and I forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

I should have loved a thunderbird instead;
At least when spring comes they roar back again.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)"

Sylvia Plath

Theme : Love
Title : Ella
"You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love & affection. -Buddha"

Here is my love challenge. My "sub-theme" was self love. I wish the scan would have come out crisper ( after multiple tries! ughh) C'est la vie!
