Supporting Other Creatives

This year I haven't created much at all. I read books, crochet, drink coffee, and watch anime. I've been unmotivated and in the biggest slump. So far 2017 has brought me stress in the form of art theft that has left me bitter and on the verge of just giving up and becoming the cat lady I always wanted to be.

I follow lots of creatives on social media. I love supporting other artists and buy their amazing products + art whenever I can. Recently, a few creatives have inspired me and I decided to support them by becoming a Patreon.

Sonya Cheney has been such a huge inspiration throughout the years that I've followed + talked to her here in this crazy internet land. She has such a beautiful + deep soul. She knows who she is and what she wants from her dreams and life. I enjoy her zines and seeing little peeks into her very cute life. Her drive + passion for writing inspired me to sit down and think about what I'm doing and what I have a passion for. That maybe I could continue doing the things I enjoy even in the face those who would try and take it from me.

You can find Sonya's blog here and support her on Patreon here

Fran of Frannerd is one of my favorite artists + YouTubers. She reminds me so much of one of my friends that I haven't talked to in a long time. I love how down to earth and real she is about illustration + just living the artist life in general. I always look forward to her YouTube videos + she has inspired me to try new art supplies + techniques. 

You can find her YouTube here and support her on Patreon here.

I'm new to Patreon, but let me know who you support or if you have your very own Patreon! xo

  1. This is absolutely the sweetest thing and it made my day to see this post. I am /so/ happy and flattered to be considered an inspiration, and I'm really glad that you're feeling a little boost to push back against people who are dragging you down. You do such cute and creative work that I don't ever want you to feel like giving up on it!
