How I Make Quick Illustration Patterns

Here are two illustrative patterns from my new video that you can check out below! In this video I thought it would be fun to show you guys how I create these quick watercolour patterns :) they by no means tile properly (that's a slightly different method) but it is a fun and easy way to make a decorative piece.

New Office Space!

Greetings all! So for a while now I have had a little room that I normally do my work in. It's a great little size however there's always been an issue with mold (the bane of my life!). Due to this, I feel it's time to not only repaint it with a paint that is made for more damp environments but to also redesign it with fresh new colours and newer storage areas. Redecoration time!!

I've been playing with the idea of pastel colours which includes some sort of graphics. My main thought is to use stripes to elongate the small room but also allow me to use the wall as a feature for my new YouTube channel! I can't wait to get started but first I need to look around at some furniture stores to see exactly what it is that I want to do. So the table above isn't actually my work station, that my friends is where I do my hair and makeup, but these are the designs that I'm considering and I kinda like the middle bottom, what do you think? My working area is actually on the opposite wall but I wanted to see how the room looked in my potential 'video wall' area. Mint green is so beautiful *o*

If any of you have any ideas for my office- let me know in the comments!

Emma Draws: Reinvent Yourself!

Good Morning! Another day and another 'Emma Draws' video is up! I find that reinventing yourself is a very common thing in today's society, changing hair colour, clothing style, eating habits, lifestyle choices (and I have a love for pastel colours!) so I felt I wanted to do an illustration based around that idea. I haven't painted or inked this much hair before and it took some time but i'm very happy with the outcome. If you would like to see how I painted it, check out the video below on my new youtube channel: come say hi!
