“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 :)
also includes an Inktober 2018 YouTube Video :)
SO FREE ART PODCAST
This weeks lil episode is more about the tings, as I talk about Interpreting Dreams with Automatic Writing.
There’s also the Book Book, which is Understanding Dreams by Keith Hearne and David Melbourne, and for a bit of arty tings, we have the lil Art Tip, which is a super easy way to create the effect of squinting when working digitally.
Hope you like this one :)
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*

“As an aquatic animal, the otter is a symbol of life. Why? Because the prime symbolic meaning of water deals with the divine feminine, which is a major life-giving energy. Water (and otters) are symbolic of creativity, fluidity and transitions.”
