The Day I peed Myself+Changes!

LipsforlifebTS

So, whats up sassytaco it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and I hope you guys are having a wonderful day because I am! So, I will begin this wonderful adventure! I am announcing  it right now before I jump right into it.

I began a youtube channel whereby I started off creating illustrations and I can’t deny that it was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo boring and now I am backing down with it. It’s not really something that I was interested in doing as beginner but nor was tutorials something that I would love to do because there are so many tutorials out there (unless you want some!).  Soooooo I want to take another approach on my videos just because I don’t want to be that ”YOUTUBER” who comes out and says nah this is not what I wanted to do.

Here is the Adventure I want to create more story-times and some other creative videos for my YOUTUBE channel that I am really proud of and I will put my best in them. These are not just normal videos such as vlogs, makeup tutorials but ANIMATIONS. Okay, I know ..I heard alotta of YOUTUBERS that are animators that have said youtube is not a place for animators because you can’t reallymoonandsun.png earn a living on that but I am NOT so interested that is why I have been going on. Been kicking! Been doing me! Now sometimes I do get out of my niche just because I feel nobody is actually listening to what I am saying but FASHION ILLUSTRATION ANIMATIONS is the way.

I want to know How was your day and Here is my video for the day!

Things that I fear as an ”artist”

Whats up sassytacos it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow! How are you? How are you feeling? what did you eat for breakfast? what did you eat for dinner?

So, I wanted to post a blog post on my semester 1 of Uni but felt it was too late so I have to live with the fact that I did not do that but that is that. So, um sorry I got to start with ”so” and if your strict with grammar read no further there will be lots of filters and etc. Okay I am kidding..Okay, here is the thing. In high school I took a break from art just because I felt school was so important and now I am regretting it. I would have improved! Now I am stuck on fingers, shadows and drawing heads! Lots of heads in different directions. You know what? I wanted to change the title of the blog post just because I do not consider myself as an ”artist”. You know why? I do not think I am good enough. 

There are times whereby I would look at other artist’s works that are ”professional” and be like ”well, I wish I could do that”. Maybe than I could sell and make lotta of money but I don’t want to plus I can’t draw like that ..so..YOLO!

Practice

RANDOM THOUGHT:  I have heard alotta stories whereby people would say you can’t make it as an artist in Namibia just because nobody would buy your work but the tourist! If they want to..I guess times go by and I see alotta of great art and yep they just sit there. Thinking positive in my art is clearly not in this world..I wonder if there is a future for my work? I feear I will not make it as an illustrator just because I don’t think I am good enough nor I do I think anybody would be willing to buy my stuff because well I am not good enough! There are so many illustrators out there and yet I can’t fit in that category of being ”the artist.” Which leads to another fear..GIVING UP!!

kissme

Last time I checked I gave up art for school just because I had to work my socks off..WORK DID NOT PAY OFFF I GOT A FRICKEN D IN HISTORYY ..A D!! I fear if worst comes to comes ..nails fall off a closet..doors slam..WW9 ..I might just give up!

Character design

Whats up sassy taco it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and happy Monday! How are you? what?..nooo… you on break ..okay…This is a long waited video that I have been hopping to post but due to the fact I was not motivated (not lazy) it just set there. A while back I wanted to create a comic because during that period I have realized that some skins where not recognized. You know when you think you will be the next John Green but then something just hits you hard and you can’t do it anymore. That is what happened! I just gave up continued to stick to school and hoped to graduate. I hope you guys enjoy this masterpiece because it was not at all easy to record. I also realized that I want to change to change my channel a bit but I feel I will discuss that in my next blog post. WARNING BEFORE WATCHING IT IS 18 MINUTES OF BLAH BLAH!  Sit down ,take some popcorn and listen to me speak …yeah exciting!

Birth of perfectionist

NOTE #1

Bend the rules, you don’t need to follow them.

sometimes you just gotta look at them as written words by men.

Written to be followed but once broken, something new is created.

I have more questions for you than answers

Youtubethumbnail

I have more questions for you than Answers

would you be able

to spot the sun

Trapped in my eye socket?

Would you still come back

Here with me after all

the injustice?

would you forgive,unlike me;just like

our mothers?

ohAreeba

Hey, sassy taco it’s me graysbygrace and HAPPY MONDAY! I hope you are doing well because I am.

It’s been really difficult trying to come up with some zine ideas but I guess just looking around or seeing things that are already there can inspire you.  Yes, that is what happened above. I really love Areeba’s journal entries and never thought I could come up with something like this. I just love journal entries and poetry! So, I’ve decided to make an animated zine to express Areeba’s entry which I pretty much enjoyed doing!  I call this re-creating  poetry as well as this is part one of this series on my Youtube channel.

MAKING A MEANING

The journal entry is a love type but since she does speak a lot  about culture and religion.. I had to sit down and think. So the speaker is unsure of the love between the partner and is asking the partner if he is capable of being in the relationship. I guess as she ask the following:

would you be able

to spot the sun

Trapped in my eye socket?

She is either asking the person if he would see her happiness (sun) or just speaking about pupil in the eye. The next stanza (reminding me high school and English)

Would you still come back

Here with me after all

the injustice?

I guess the here would be detiny and the injustice is the wrong ..I don’t sometimes we all get carried away ..It is just a love thing.

Next one 

would you forgive,unlike me;just like

our mothers?

Does the lover have forgiveness because the poet sure does not. Going on, this was interesting and I would love to hear your meaning towards this beautiful piece .
