Mandala Speed Drawing Videos

Hey all, I set up a YouTube channel to promote my designs!

I’ve only added a couple of video’s so far: sped up videos of myself drawing and coloring mandalas.

These are experimental, top down videos that were filmed using only my phone and an adjustable phone holder/stand that clips to the side of a table.  I edited the videos using apps on my phone.

These videos turned out pretty cool!

The longer video I created for this project (above) includes some music by a favourite artist of mine, Gramatik. He allows his music to be used in Youtube videos with a Creative Commons license, which is pretty awesome.

I have to say making these videos was pretty fun so I’ll make a longer one next time, and maybe work on some DIY or tutorial videos in the future.

Stay tuned for that!

If you like these videos make sure to give them a thumbs up and follow my brand new channel if you’re interested in seeing more!

 

Cheers,

Digital Mandalas and the Future of this Blog

Where do I go from here-

Happy September!

I am back from my break, but I won’t be posting as often any more.

This blog has become a source of stress for me, so I’ve taken a summer break to re-evaluate it and decide where to go from here.

From now on I will only post when I am able to, and have something interesting to share. This way it will reduce stress on me while bringing the blog back to it’s original purpose – to have fun and inspire others!

Instead of writing blog posts every week, I will be dedicating more of my time to creating new and compelling designs for my stores on Redbubble, Society6 and Zazzle.

Speaking of which, below are a few new mandalas I made over the summer.  I created this series of digital mandala designs using some of my own photographs!

These are available for purchase on many different products in my Society6 and Redbubble stores.

Let me know what you think of these new digital mandalas in the comments below!

I will continue be active on here and respond to any comments you leave, while posting occasionally as stated.  Hopefully I can provide some more interesting and educational content for you guys in the coming months.

I have been, and will continue to be more active on my social media profiles, especially on Twitter, Instagram and my Facebook page. Make sure to follow me there to see my latest designs, sales in my stores and other projects I’m working on!

Keep on creating 🙂

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern

PhotoGrid_1499135179081

Hello everyone!  Today I’m sharing a new version of my Vintage Pattern in Rose Gold.

The original design was hand drawn, then scanned and turned into a pattern digitally.  I played around with a few colour combinations before settling on this one.  The muted pink tones add to the vintage feel of this artwork.

This vintage inspired pattern looks nice on many of the products in my Society6 and Redbubble stores!  Check out some examples below:

bag clutch makeup purse accessories fashion

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern Carry-all Pouches

This design looks lovely on carry-all pouches from Society6. They come in 3 sizes and can be used for so many things including a pencil case, makeup bag or clutch.

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern Tote Bag

A tote bag with this design adds class and a vintage vibe to any outfit.  They’re handy for work, school, or heading to the beach. Tote bags can be purchased from both Society6 and Redbubble.

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern iPhone Case

This pattern works great as a mobile phone case and is available for several models in both of my stores, including for the latest iPhone.

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern A-Line Dress

This design works well as an A-Line Dress from Redbubble.

I haven’t purchased one of these dresses for myself yet, but I am curious to find out what they’re like in person.  It looks great on the model of course but on me, who knows?  If anyone has purchased or seen one in person feel free to share your experience in the comments section below!

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern Wall Tapestry

The final product I will share with you today is a wall tapestry, because I love wall tapestries.  They are available on both Redbubble and Society6.  I love tapestries because they are so versatile and show off the artwork really nicely.  This particular design would work nicely as a backdrop for photos or YouTube videos!

That’s all I have for you today folks, I hope you all enjoyed seeing my latest work, wherever you are reading from.

Stay Wild Moon Child

Something old made new again!

This design was created by combining an older drawing of the moon with the words “Stay Wild” in this cute font.

The artwork has a relaxed, care-free vibe.

It looks particularly nice on a t-shirt which would make a great gift for that free-spirited friend in your life.

It also makes a cute sticker!  Stickers from Redbubble are one of my top selling items. They’re perfect for decorating notebooks and laptops.  Stickers make a great gift for teenagers.

I Climb Mountains

fashion hiking outdoors camping mountain tank shirt

Here’s one for the nature lovers.

My latest design was inspired by a recent hike I went on.

Here is the view from the top of the trail.  This photo was taken from the top of the Dog Mountain trail which starts on Mount Seymour, in North Vancouver, B.C., Canada.

It was a nice, clear day but there were actually still several feet of snow on the mountain, even in early June!  It was a good, brisk hike and a lot of fun.

This design works especially well on t-shirts, and would make a great gift for someone in your life who likes hiking our mountain climbing.

It is available now on fashion, accessories and home decor products in my Society6 and Redbubble stores!

Here are a few examples:
