Oceans

I’d found a home in a distant land. A home that I called mine for a blissful few hours on a sunny day.
Away from everything but not, sheltered away, I found a place which allowed me to become whole.

The waves crashed in on my legs. Enveloping them as my heart poured out into the ocean.

My insides danced with glee as I playfully skipped through the cool water.

My footprints embedded in the sodden sand, as sudden as the waves lapped the shore once more, the past imprints that have shaped me are taken back into the waters.

And in that moment, as I watch the shapes dissolve into the great vastness, I feel the emptiness inside me fill with warmth.
I exude happiness and I am engulfed by the power that resides in the ever changing faces of waves. 

I am energy. Ever changing and powerful.

I am free.

Free from hatred, pain, fear and jealousy. Free to be a continuous work in progress. Free to feel what I need to feel. Free to walk away.

Free.

I am nothing but a vibrant current sweeping through the great ocean that is life.

Illustration of the Day 


My love for simple and messy line work is up there with coffee and yoga. I have a nostalgic kick every so often and get the urge to draw old photos. Give them a new lease of life and a different memory perspective. It’s interesting to me when I do these drawings because I seem to have a knack of switching off the perfectionist button when doing this style. I especially like this style when I’m on public transport and other awkward drawing moments. Always fun and unpredictable. Usually resulting in simple but effective attempts at rectification. 

This is a rather old portrait of my one of my best friends called Nelson. He is an amazing artist amongst many other talents and awesome attributes. Have a look at his Instagram @killingtown and his Facebook page Nostradamus Artistry for some of his work. All the colours and vibrant characters that make you curious beyond belief. His mind is wonderful and his art gives you a fractional glimpse into the emporium that is his mind. 

Hope you enjoy! 

Love,
