Follow me on:
I have finally gotten round to getting my Zodiac series onto Society6. :happybounce: 
So now you can purchase prints as well as phone cases depending on your Zodiac sign :D Thank you guys once again for all your support.

So what do guys think? Do you have an account on Society6? If so let me know so I can follow you ;)Huggle! 

Here's my account:
  • Listening to: Ego by Milky Chance
  • Reading: The Sun also Rises



So here's something different from what I usually do... I've been listening to Brikkuni's new album 'Rub Al Khali', which if you haven't listened to yet, I suggest you do so.

This is based on one of the songs from their album 'Ċpar', which I find has beautiful lyrics.

I also wanted to use this painting as an opportunity to draw attention to bird hunting. Something I am highly against and believe should be done away with.

I included the quail and the finch as they are two types of birds which can still be hunted/trapped in Malta.

Enough ranting from my side. Here's an excerpt from Brikkuni's song Ċpar (Translation below):

Abjad libbes l-asfalt 
Dgħajjef dwalijiet 
Li minn arbli għoljin kmandaw it-triq 
Widnejk trid tiftaħ biex tara
Mill-wied erġajt smajt l-eku t’armi 
Jisparaw fuq it-tajr li bħal dan iż-żmien ipassi 
Ħsibt li ċ-ċpar kien ser jagħtihom nifs mill-qilla tal-porvli 
Li kilbet kaċċatur f’dat-temp ma setgħatx ħlief tbatti 
Iżda ħadd u xejn 
Mhu ser jidħol bejn 
In-namra u n-namrat''
- Ċpar by BRIKKUNI

Translation (DISCLAIMER: I am in no way a translator or claim to be in any way.)

White dresses the asphalt 
Low lights 
From the high poles that command the road 
Your ears you must open to see 
From the valley I have heard again the echo of arms 
Shooting on birds which migrate during this season
I thought the fog would give them a break from the gunpowder 
But the hunter's desire did not dwindle in this weather
But nobody and nothing 
Would come in between
Passion and the lover''

Women for the world
Diversity inspires and women strengthen us.

Diversity is a beautiful thing, that needs to be celebrated and embraced. Diversity should not create walls. It should inspire us to learn and appreciate one another. Together our differences make us stronger.

We should all fight for equality and frown upon any disparaging talk against women...which for some reason our society cannot seem to grow out of. Women should strive to work together. It's about time society realises the strength of women.

Ok. I'm done rambling now.
Finally finished after a month I think I've fainted. 
Materials: Van Gogh and Rembrandt watercolours :heart: and 300gsm paper
I drew each portrait individually and then combined the whole thing using Photoshop to create the design and patterns.

You can purchase prints and other cool items, such as tote bags, phone cases and mugs with the design from my Society6 shop.

You can also follow me on Instagram and Facebook, and let me know if you have a page :D (Big Grin)
