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 .

Journaling

Blogtitle

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!!

Becreative

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.

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??

Runaway Girl Series : Tips for 2018

Justin bieber

Voice: you are eager to come back go on enter!

Hey sassy Tacos it is my graysbygrace your very own rainbow shinning like the sun because it is  (everyday bro) beautiful! Namibia is actually receiving rain, that means harvest season will be so successful! Okay, so now it is time to reveal the second tip of the year and it is..

 

Tip # 2 Stop complaining, Be the first

 

I know this feeling! Always complaining how there are less black beauty brands in Namibia. Complain that less people are not sponsoring Artists in Namibia. Complaining that the Namibians do not have their own fashion style to describe them. Complain that.. Complaining that.. Well, stop!  It is a waste of time to complain because you were brought on this world to create, build and explore it. So it is time for you to be the first. Take that risk and stop complaining! It is that time to start taking that first step and be recognize as that designer, artist, writer and etc.  As 2018 is close by, most people want that recognition and yes it will come with a lot of sweat …I am who is in?

Runaway Girl Series :Tips before 2018

 

Table

Voice : Welcome fellow inhabitant, It seems your present awakens the day today.  Shall you take your step..please do not be afraid there is too much to explore and many people to see. Move your cursor downwards to see what is going on today.

 

[ Taking a step you enter a dark hole and slowly a bleak of light shines]

 

Whats up sassy Taco it’s me graysbygrace  your very own rainbow.  I hope you guys are having a wonderful day today because I am. I am happy! For no reason! It is almost 2018 and… move away December because January is my month. Yeah, it is almost my birthday and the second time the results  for grade 12 will be released in Namibia. Move away High school, University is calling my name! To start of the year I am going to have these bullets of tips to prepare anybody for 2018. It is a New Year right, We all want change!

 #1: Don’t tell people your plans show them your results

Now who has that guilty pleasure of posting a tweet just to his/her audience to be alert of that certain post in two weeks time. Then, suddenly the post is not successful because the internet was slow or you were so busy not to write or you just got bored. Raise of hands.. okay, I feel I am the only one.  I feel that the above quote does apply to me in so many ways sometimes I feel when I wait to long to post especially during these Holidays I am loosing an audience. So what I do instead is tell my audience of my plans to satisfy this feeling but they all fail which is quite sad because they are all so good and original content! Well, I have learned something and that is not tell people my plans but show them the results!  Yes, I want to be a film director but speaking all day and not showing it will not get me there! I will loose motivation and will not make it. Instead I need to surprise people! Plus there are jealous people who want to eat off your success so be careful you are just opening up a door for another person.  Adding on, when you release dreams, ideas, plans to a crowd of people they tend to have less respect for it because they do not know who you are(sometimes) or they just don’t care. I still wonder if it is a good idea to post goals/ New Year Resolutions to your audience? Will you still have that high interest to achieve them or not? I want to hear what you think? Comment down below.
