When I first began to get tagged for awards and such, I used to be super ecstatic. That’s when laziness took over. It’s been the ruling party for so long, but now, the opposition (me, basically) decided to make a move. Today I’m going to be doing The Change Award, a really neat tag by… Continue reading The Change Award, The Month, and The Hiatus
I’ve been busy. Don’t roll your eyes now. Things have been going on, I’m so happy about all the support I’m getting for Design Pique, and that’s been keeping me very occupied, so I haven’t posted for some three weeks. But I had to get back here and patch things up, and art is very… Continue reading Long Time No Art// Artist Interview with Buttercup@ Typically Untypical Teen
I’ve pretty much let go of the whole schedule idea. Schedules and I don’t get on very well. That’s not very nice of me since I did an official intro too, but I guess I shouldn’t force myself to do something I can’t… So there. Getting to the point, hello! Today I have my take… Continue reading BIBPC the Fifth, Category 2

I have officially sparked a sudden interest in cartooning. That isn’t much of a surprise, because sudden interests are quite common to me. Just a day or two ago, I felt a deep longing to make exercise schedules and do burpees and planks and wall sits… But that’s beyond the point. Today, I’m going to… Continue reading Of Pencil Sketches and Cartooning
I had seen gems being used in zentangle since forever, and I finally decided to try it out. It used to look so complicated to make, but once I started, I realized that I was mistaken. See that picture up there? That was the first gemdala (termed by me) that I made and actually liked. Since then, I have… Continue reading Using Gems in Your Zentangle// An Unprofessional Tangler’s Guide
Ever since my last post, I’ve been randomly working on a few zentangle projects, only a little bit differently. Presenting my four most recent zentangle cum mandalas, or as I like to call them, zendalas!
Zentangling is a meditative art technique that involves combining patterns to create a beautiful finished work. It is fun and relaxing and quite simple to master. The best part is, zentangling subconsciously immerses you into the process, making you temporarily unaware of the surroundings. It makes you willingly draw all your attention towards it. In other… Continue reading Zentangle: What is it?
Yesterday, I created my first font, that I am now releasing to the public. Seashell has 73 glyphs and is free for personal use. You can use it on your websites and personal projects. I spent a great deal of time on this, drawing each letter and converting the finished alphabet into a font. The Glyphs Now, I am not a… Continue reading Introducing Seashell, a Free Handmade Font+ Download!
I always used to be in a muddle when it came to hand lettering. I had calligraphy pens, but I couldn’t find the ink. I had brush pens, but they were lost. I didn’t know what kind of paper to use and, the biggest problem of all, I didn’t know how to letter in the first place.… Continue reading Beginning Hand Lettering
