First of all let us all clap for my organisation on this blog these points , numbering and headings got me excited! On to topic the change that you will be expecting is , I will be writing more short stories and sharing my art on this blog! I have been exploring and testing out a lot of niches(I do not know if that is what you call it)..if you do not know I was once a fashion blogger and changed into a lifestyle blogger but as I explored I realized that Art and short stories is my niche. This means more illustrations and digital Work!! You can follow my Instagram to see my latest work and if your interested in collaborating I am in! How about it? I am going to be an animator so you will be updated on the blog when my work will be posted on YouTube but do not feel afraid to check out ”GRAYSBYGRACE” on YouTube!
Well, I am Out..Cya around and next week Monday!! I want to know what are you obsessed with this week cause I am obsessed with three songs right now:
Ashlee Raynee song Me No Wan
We are shooting Eagles in the sky reaching for abstract moments
Inherited names destined to rot like ashes on the ground
Diverse individuals limited by time continuously delivering faith, love and pain.
Who are we? why are we here?
I skim through the streets and see an old man begging for money
I see a woman selling her body
I see a young generation sleeping on the streets
I hold back my tears and ANGER grows within me.
injustice shots #blacklivesmatter
young girl kills herself after marriage.
Where is my God? Where is my God?
Girl got dreams but has a barn at 14
Boy loves poker and feeds his pride
Drugs hit teens, yeah that’s all about fame.
you know, they say money buys happiness
let me say it’s just a drug which we inhale
to satisfy our needs and wants.
oh, can you hear mother nature cry!
what have you done?
Stop in the name for peace.
End the hunger name.

Our picture for a perfect world is a dream ..okay, it is a goal. I believe problems allow us to grow and build our-self. These problems that we face are a challenges that we need to except. This piece showcases all the problems that are faced within my community and the world. This is the second zine that I have created..I am really sad because the zine is not well presented. I use purple for headings and writing. Any tips??
Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow. I hope you guys are doing well and enjoying this wonderful Monday. Yes, something new kicked out and I am excited about this. Lately, I have been addicted to YouTube and found two different individuals that inspired me to do this specific ..may I say project. They are Noor (Noor’s place blog) and Areeba (Not your type blog). Yes I am really shook right now because I have been suffering from finding out how I should combine Fantasy, poetry and fashion together. The struggle is real. Okay, Noor and Areeba are twin Pakistan sisters who use their journals to make a mix of poetry and art. I found on both of their blogs a mood board and I was like well that would be awesome to do plus in future I feel I will do the same thing because my fashion section would be kind of boring (Check out their fashion section).
I gathered 3 old pictures that would work well for this project and decided to make mood boards.
This brings a Gothic yet fancy style.
This is so tumblr and yet calm.
This tells about a lover awaiting her crush but he never shows the same feelings.
Okay I want to know what you think this leave a comment below.
Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace and wow what a week. Well, yeah I am blogging on a Saturday because of the busy schedule that delayed me to create these beautiful artwork. This is something new for my blog (The layout) and I want to see how it works out.
I don’t know if I told you guys this but I have created a Youtube Artsy channel which will follow my journey. I always wanted to create a youtube channel to show my work but I never knew how to set it because of the limited equipment I had but one day I thought of speed painting so..yeah.. I will grow it after this. I can’t really wait because I am graduating from High school so..more is coming!
I want to know how is your day?
Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and wow what a week!!! Sorry for not blogging lately ..well, I am just stuck with school and time management but I promise this will be resolved. Going on, I have realized how I am spending too much time on the future but not on the present. The idea is to have short term goals and build them. As a teenager now entering in the “young adulthood” I feel really .. not..motivated! It seems school has began to get boring and I am finding ways to fix my C’s into A’s. There is so much to do such as should I go with Kaplan or Polytechnic of Namibia either way it’s a journey…Um.. thats enough!
Yes, I am now into digital art and aim.. I am telling everybody this right now to create a comic! That is why I created my development Artsy Channel which a kind supportive friend of mine suggested! It’s so nice to have the support!! Go check it out because more is coming and I will also like to know unicorns who else do you think I should follow for inspiration?
I want to know from you how is your Sunday so far?
Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and I am back! I am sorry for not posting lately because I was busy with my term one exam and I was in pressure but I am back. While on YouTube I was recommended a video with the similar title as my blog post.
Cultural Appropriation involves the idea of a highly dominate culture taking a minority’s culture without understanding it. Going on, some minorities are not recognize and given a bad image but people still use their culture for branding making these “people” highly recognized or embraced. We are talking about decorations, jewelry, clothes and etc.
Imagine the future of young black individuals with their hairstyles especially Africans being judged vs a highly recognized brand being embraced using these hairstyles for their show. Uniquely, The generation coming will stop embracing their own culture in addition to being original because of how their being criticized. Forward, your child will walk into your house with Japanese clothes with little understanding of how it reflects towards the Japanese culture. Going on, learning about another persons culture is important because it allows you to understand more about it. Not only does it make you open minded but an individual with awareness.
I feel more confident in myself because when somebody copies my culture it makes more proud though I don’t benefit from this ( a better image of the black culture) but behind the mirror we all know the story. Any minority can agree that somehow we are unique we are an inspiration to fashion trends. I am angry though because my culture is a profit to high dominate brand and ”then there is somebody who says bantu knots are not neat ”
I want to know your point of view, what do you think?
