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.

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

Runaway Girl Series: Shameless Promotion

Graysface

Hey Unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and may I say happy Friday! I hope your all having a wonderful Friday because I am feeling me, doing me and being me..if that makes sense. I want to know what you did today in a sequence you know because I want to interact with you guys and get to know you better.

On today’s menu I am going to be exploring two things which are Maya’s video and also an artist I am so addicted to this year.

shameless Maya

Laovaan

Mayas video

If you are boo or part of the boo challenge then you might as well as know Maya’s World! I mean who doesn’t ..I will give you a brief introduction. She is an amazing, talented, inspirational Youtuber, and I also heard photographer who gave out the challenge for talented people sitting on their dreams to do something! I mean how cool is that! In her video below she explains how shy she was or “ashamed” keeping in mind that she was bubbled up with her creative ideas.  She give that a stop and decided to go shameless!

“What would happen if I shamelessly promoted myself for 365 days?” was the question and social media experiment marking the start of Maya’s online self-discovery.

Laovaan Video+thoughts

What is art? Why do professor call Manga, fashion designs or anything simple that does not connect to Van Gogh ..Picasso or simply “art”. When you enter an art class for the first time the teachers would always advice you to connect to your life so that you may apply that to your artworks but sometimes our love such as Manga may not be exceptional. Well his video is similar to this scenario above but it did not end in high school it continued in University too. He needed to divide his work into pieces for university and pieces for him[ I don’t really know how to explain this but I hope you understand]. I wanna know what you think?

Let me say I have joined an art competition and lost. I left with my ballet art and closed the doors of the competitive world! It’s a shame that they were looking for new ideas but I will never understand them. Maybe at that moment it was time for me divide my work with the competitive world. Who knows????

 

My thoughts

I am bubbled with these ideas in my head. I mean, how many opportunities have I closed down because I feel I am not good enough. Plus, I am working on so much perfection that I have grown so much- if you have been following my journey. From finger art which looks so bad towards sketch and learning how to blend. I was going through a journey! You know what I realized? I have not been honest to myself and you guys throughout my journey but now I have decided today I am going shameless!

what would happen of I shamelessly promoted myself online?

Well, I am tired of judging myself I am going to take these opportunities that have came across my path and do me. I mean yes, I will fail but it’s better to try something and fail than sit there and do nothing at all.

I choose these two videos because I realized that something in my journey was not just right! Here I am joining these communities trying to look for opportunities while there sitting right there. I am closing too many doors and it’s time I start opening them and being me. It’s time to be the Medusa that I have created and be fearless!

I wanna know what you think Unicorns? If you are boo I want to connect how are you?

Why minorities hate cultural appropriation?

Grays World - Drawing 10-956757293

Why many Black women, Native Americans, Asian Americans and other minorities hate cultural appropriation and exactly why it is damaging?

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.

Grays World - Drawing 12-1705848683

My understanding:

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.

Why is it so important?

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.

Grays World - Drawing 13-1387287513

How do I feel?

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?

Runaway Girl: Stress

I have just realized something while trying to complete my homework and that is in a couple of days I’ll be sitting down writing the so called ” International Exam”. Weather or not I’ll pass or fail will depend on how much I study and so far I am heading no where..Oh, I forgot to greet..What’s up unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow and let me just say Happy Monday and WOW aren’t I on schedule! Yes, it is that day of the year whereby I bluff all about my life and help others through stress and depression.

One of the worst moment  I am  currently facing  is trying to complete  high school and enter University. I feel like I have been through this life and it gets boring every single time I continue. Today which is a Sunday  I set down and  watched some movies ..adventures for the inspiration of creating my fantasy magazine. I did get some bright ideas but I had to think about how am I going to make this a success while suffering from trying to have a study habit for the exams. I realized  how stupid I am and yes, I am still pending two unfinished homework which I hope to finish at 3:00am on a Monday.  Don’t blame me, I am quite lazy these days even my performance in school shows it. I mean the first time  I started again high school for another two years I was quite excited and even had the quotes pasted on the walls. But I slowly  became bored because the motivation stopped. I am not gonna lie the problem is not being in a Christian School but how boring school is. The worst part is people are saying how University is difficult  but I thought your doing something you like so therefore your -more -engaged in what your doing? #doyouboo

Thought wrong.

Let me say this is not a diary entry but just a life Journey: 
Runaway Girl Season 1 aiming to go to Fashion week in 
London, Paris, Milan let the journey begin
