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 .

I am really excited to go through this beautiful adventure because it is something that I love and really want to explore. If you do not know what I am speaking about then you should check out my New Year Resolution

Fade In

 Hey sassy Taco it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and welcome ..We are growing! I hope you are hazing a great and wonderful Month or day because soon this will end..The month/day. Yes, I am continuously changing the format of blog because I am trying new techniques/ideas of writing. I am trying to make it as visual pleasing as it can be.

 

RWGS

You guys love the new format???

As I said, the month is about to end as well as the day but we are all going to go on. I never actually explained what is going on my YouTube channel but let me explain. New Year Resolutions are exciting to write down but how many of us actually do them? Not me. That is why on my channel I began to target all my New Year Resolutions every month. This means, every month I will do a New Year Resolution and see how does that go. I began in March with being creative within digital works, illustrations and screen writings. I just want to jump out of the boundaries and do something New. I want to break the rules! Now in April I will begin with, build my animation skills by exploring traditional animation, 2d animation and 3d animation but 3d animation ill probably do it later because 2d animation/traditional animation. I still need to explore but know what? Something just hit me as I was writing probably also exploring 3d animation facing more towards architecture will be a great idea..I wonder.

 

~~ZINE LIFE~~

ZINEPAGE

What do you guys think about the cover? I was really debating !!!

 

OMFG! I am so excited to begin this side of my adventure! I really do not want to loose my animations as I go with life so creating zines will a great idea because I have a place to put them. I just want to look in the future and say, “wow! that was mine?”..it sucked so much (cringe). Where is my art teacher? I am also in love with looking at zine so anybody knows a place where I can find some or buy some! If you also want me to check out your zines send me some or email me.

I want to know have you ever done a zine? Go check out on my You-Tube the zine that I have created!!

Runaway Girl Series! BE Creative !! UNIVERSITY!!

Fade in

[Rain dripping]

 

A rout of knights prepared their horses as the search for the Prince was announced.  Each send out to the different valleys, mountains and another to follow the footsteps of the thieves. House to house they searched. Sunrise to sunset through the gloomy mist. A day became a week, a week became a month and the search became a doubt.

No matter how hard I try to keep-up-to-date I fail but with this weeks break I hope I can keep up.

RWGS

Yes, and Yes I have began with my YouTube channel and that is going well. As you may know, I hope so..I am studying Psychology, sociology, Chinese and English. As much as I love Art and hated high school keeping me away from it I still want to continue. To be specific I choose to study animation since after Vacay I fell in love. I feel that is the only update I have right now about my personal life but there are some interesting things that will come up . I choose to not reveal them cause successful people do not do that!!

 

Zine

 

Coomeoflooks is coming back and if you do not know what is that you are probably a new  sassy Taco. In my high school years I began this attempt of interviewing different people and what they wear. I do not remember actually why I started this but I did have a high interest in fashion so I guess I might as well as bring it back. This time I am turning the interview into zines! You know what? I have a confession and that is I always wanted to start a magazine. This is the beginning and I hope I get inspired as well as motivated to continue this!

Journal Entry

coming soon!!! ( will be on my Instagram soon!!)


 

KRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA see ya next week and I want to know what does CYL stand for??

Perfect Place

Zine 2

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.

NEWS FLASH

hundreds die 

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.

build a mountain, Rainbow nation


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??

Mood board inspiration

Okay, What is this about now?

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).

The inspired mood boards

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.
