I just found out this piece of mine won an award at the Society of Illustrators NY Student Scholarship show!!! I’m so excited!
This piece was inspired by the story, “In the Company of Wolves” by Angela Carter. If you haven’t read it, it is by far my favorite re-inventing of the little red riding hood story.
i want to write a movie about a girl with depression who meets a boy and they become friends and thats it. he’s just another friend. she goes to therapy and learns to love herself and saves herself. because thats how it happens. thats real life. you’re the hero. you can save yourself.

The Eiffel Tower was only around nine years old when Rousseau painted this particular study of the structure and its surrounding land. Somebody take me to Paris, please?
I one hundred percent disapprove of movies/shows were there is a ‘wild’, ‘creative’, ‘untamable’ but ‘genius’ main character and a bumbling, somewhat awkward sidekick put in charge of keeping track of the protagonist, who continually puts the sidekick in uncomfortable or downright dangerous situations to keep up with their odd schemes.
