“IT’S PLAYTIME :)”
time to let go
“If only letting go of bad habits and fears, was as easy and as fun as letting go of, and popping, these balloons …
This Affirmation highlights beautifully the problem with Perfectionism, and the Struggles of Letting Go.
Big Sophie wasn’t going to release this one, Not Good Enough she kept saying, but I forced her to, because if you keep waiting for tings to be perfect, you’ll never release anything; so we both know this one isn’t perfect, but because it isn’t … it kind of is :)
Sometimes you’ve just got to see where the wind takes you, and accept, that it’s Time to Let Go.“
days 27 to 31
I talk about Days 27 to 31 of Inktober 2018, where I Inked Seven Anime Characters, turned Seven Videogame Characters into lilSOPHIE’s and realised I maybe Sacrificed too many Important tings, aka, I need a rest :)

REALISTIC PENCIL DRAWINGS
“CAPTURING FEMININITY IS WHERE MY HEART IS.
I started Drawing in 2013 just for fun; sketching random scenes from Anime, or trying to bring my favourite Videogame Characters to life. However, before I knew it, I found myself going down a more realistic route :)”
You can view more of my Art on my INSTAGRAM @Sophie.Lawson
“In 2013 I had the idea of a character called lilSOPHIE … in 2017, I finally started to bring her to life. She’s a bit cheeky, but I’ll let her take over from here.
My creator, Sophie Lawson, calls me lilSOPHIE; so I like to call her big Sophie :) My little page is a bit like me at the moment, not fully formed lol, but soon, once big Sophie gets off her fat arse, I’ll be sharing some of my daily affirmations with you … and maybe a little bit more, eww, does that sound rude?” *hides face*

This weeks lil episode could be the last one before they put me in a Mental Asylum lol It starts out talking about how I think I need to go back to basics with my Art, before I bounce all over the place asking questions like: What are we Doing here? Are Introverts Aliens? What is Rest? Is the Subconscious an External Source? Are some Thoughts other Peoples Feelings? … I also talk about AI, Virtual Reality and Out of Body Experiences, as well as this weeks lil Art Tip, which is how to Grid a Pencil Drawing without putting any lines on your paper.
