Story

I have a story to tell that is in the works. For now enjoy this artwork that reminds me of my story. It might be commissions others have done for me or simply artwork that suggests a similar theme to my story. I'll be sure to share more about this story in the future.

Please note this is NOT my artwork.

'Vhat' is Your Center?

*NO spoilers for the film are in this journal*
((Well, possibly a minor spoiler. Only a minor))

Rise of the Guardians is such a great film!

This might be where I start to differ with people, concerning films, but I do try to see the message the film is trying to give. Once I determine what the MESSAGE is I decide whether it's something I believe in. I figure out if it is something that I should add to my life or not. I don't do this for all films because, let's face it, some movies are simply for entertainment (ex. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation). However, in this film I believe I discovered a message that I find noteworthy.

In Rise of the Guardians the message is for people to try and understand what they have to CONTRIBUTE to the world. North asks Jack Frost, "What is your center?" He simply meant what was at the core of Jack's soul? What was Jack's purpose? *Slight spoiler??* Jack discovers that his reason for existing is to make people have fun. By doing this he helps people feel brave even in the face of fear! He is an enjoyable character and reminds me of one of my brothers, in terms of being a type of dare devil.

As for me, I firmly believe my center is to celebrate LIFE and make it known to others! It is so easy, so simple, to celebrate death. It is so popular nowadays to focus on the sorrow, pain, and horror at the end of life. I find it quite rare to focus on the very start of life! The innocence of a baby's birth, the limitless wanderings of a child's imagination, and the endless wonder that life has to offer. Horror movies or anything that involves zombies, vampires, and/or werewolves tends to be very unpopular with me. However, I will not bash on them because the purpose of this journal entry is not to stir up an argument. I simply want you to know that I love to celebrate life and I wish more people did the same.

So 'vhat' is YOUR center? What do you think it is? Have you always known? Have you only recently discovered it?

I'm out of state for a week. Will be back in July. Maybe another daily drawing challenge?!?
Just discovered Avi from Pentatonix has his own Youtube channel. I'm intrigued.
This is a good song:
The thumbnail makes it look like the video has been taken down BUT if you hit play it WILL work.
I haven't listened to the original, but this remix is very cool and I can't stop listening to it!
This had me laughing. Hope you watch and enjoy. Also, wouldn't this be cool to do?!?

FIRSTLY, thank you for visiting my page. My goal, as an artist, is to create positive illustrations and stories that celebrate life. I find such a goal rare so I want to be the change I wish to see in the world. I hope to 'leave footprints on the sands of time' as my favorite poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, puts it.

SECONDLY, should you wish to strike up a conversation I would suggest the topic be about movies. I am a visual storyteller and I have great respect for films. I'm usually attending movie theaters and following films on IMDB. I grew up watching Star Trek (the original), The Rifleman (I love the 1940s and 50s era of film and television), and The Wind in the Willows (children movies/television shows are also a popular topic with me).

THIRDLY, if you send me a LLAMA then I will give you one back AND leave a COMMENT somewhere in your gallery about your work. I understand how difficult it can be to get comments on your work so this is my strategy to explore new artists and new art styles. I would love to have you people comment on my work as well but please don't feel pressured.

I continually strive to become a better person at everything I am gifted at. Hold me accountable to that. I appreciate feedback and critiques.

May you have a blessed day.

Live long and prosper!

Muse! Thank you for the message. I have been telling myself to reply to this but things have been surprisingly crazy over here. I do appreciate the check in, though.

Easter weekend came and went with way too much candy then I care to count. I'm not much of a sweet eater but I will enjoy a bag of Reese's Pieces every once in a while.

How are you doing? Your latest piece that I liked is from My neighbor Totoro, am I right? I have yet to see that movie but I keep hearing its really good. I love Studio Ghibli films.

Hi Bekah! :giggle: No worries. I am the queen of procrastination!Procrastination  I'm a firm believer in replying to things when in a good mood. Sometimes that means it may take a while, though. Blush

Mmm. Reese's Pieces sound really good right now. :drool:

Thank you for asking! :backhug: I'm doing a lot better now. I'm drawing again and I'm started to get excited. I hope to keep my momentum going for a while. :aww:
:happybounce: I'm so lad you liked it! Yes, that's the movie! Totoro Umbrella for Erichan  I highly recommend it. It's one of my favorites. Although, I want to warn you against the dub because the voice actors are absolutely awful. The original Japanese audio and subs are part of the magic. :D ...Two-Cents Animated

I am so sorry I haven't replied to any of your comments! It's been a busy and somewhat emotional month for me so far so I haven't been that present on Deviant recently.

I am happy though that I could sprinkle some joy on you! I've always been a fan of flowers, they look so pretty. However, when it comes to gardening I have never been able to keep anything alive. Haha! So I enjoy nature from afar.

I find your work a breath of fresh air as well. I'm so used to seeing drawings and works of fantasy on here that it's a nice break to see photography and drawings of realistic subjects. If you know what I mean?

Thank you for sharing and I hope life treats you well!

No worries! :huggle: Sorry to hear you've had a hard month.
I have a tricky time keeping up with my account. Most of the time I feel like I'm drowning in notifications. ;p
You definitely did! :happybounce: Hehe that's funny! I've learned I have what I call a 'brown-thumb'. If I have an established plant I can take good care of it, but starting it from a seed always ends in tears. ;p
cute blush that's so sweet of you to say! Panda Emoji-32 (Happy Blush) [V2] I understand that. I'm personally weary of seeing photo-manipulated water drops and flowers. The first ones I saw were impressive and nowadays I can't help but think "another one? seriously"? :p

You too, Bekah! :heart:
