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??

Namibian Art Vlogger on Youtube!

Issue 2 with love

How is Life?

Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very rainbow and Happy Friday! There is so much to talk about and yet I feel like everything so not important. Lately I have been changing the format of my blog and trying to find out what best fit on this blog. Yes, Runaway girl series is one of the most interesting posts that a lot of you unicorns like. So, with special love I really want to change the Runaway Girl series into graysbygrace because I really want to continue the magazine format. What do you think unicorns? I also want sassy Taco to be a thing right now because unicorns are everywhere so I really want a special name to identify all of us. Do you agree? Would you join the sassy Taco crew?

Why I have not been blogging?

A lot has been going on from moving to Namibia, new school, exams and University. I am really excited to say that I am Uni- student now..okay maybe not..but lets think positive now! I am still waiting for the results to come out because in Namibia what they do is publish grade 12 and 10 results in the newspaper. I may say all the studying and stress has ended but I mean even if you feel you have put your best there is still that sense behind saying you have not made it. I am nervous but I am positive! If you are reading this and have written your year 12 exams and waiting for your results. A certificate can not explain how extra-ordinary you are. Apart from exams, I have been waiting for my camera to bring the best content and a lot of you guys can see that I have been filming with my computer camera and results are not bad.. I am not really mad(Youtube). But yeah, I have got a camera and plan to bring all of you sassy Tacos the best content. Obviously from great content comes creativity which I have been stressing on in 2017 . Being inspired by shameless Maya and the artists that I have met across the social media platform ..  so, what I have decided to do is work on my short films which I have failed to do because of not having a camera but yeah, I am ready! That is why I decided to start a youtube channel… I mean, Film school was the last option( not even thought about because of how useless it is seen from one person perspective) for University ?.. So I needed another alternative so here we are. Going on, this Friday I am jotting and exploring ..most importantly drawing..drawing!

What are you guys planning on Friday? How was your week? what are planning next week? Who is your celebrity crush? Okay, who watched the new season of KKW? Oh gosh..something random..idk..idk okay…

Check out my Youtube Video and give advice I will appreciate it! oh, comment below if you have a youtube channel

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.

Runaway Girls: Black girl magic

 

Rihanna

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!

Am I growing?

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?
