Brooke Mackay: The Rainbow Hart

????????????????????????????????????

I wrote a post about Faith Galvan’s and Gemma Whitby’s commission a wee while back, and my next one has arrived in it’s new home safely…. so here is AFP Patreon’ Patrons Commission three! Sorry it’s taken me so long to post sweetie!

For those that need a wee reminder….. I’m a member of a completely wonderful facebook group, set up for the Amanda Palmer Patreon’ Patrons. It’s beautiful, and real, and the best community I’ve ever been a part of.

So full of love…… I wanted to do a thing.

I’m really excited about my current Zendoodles, so that was the thing I decided to do. Give away three commissions, to anyone who liked my picture. Oh, and while I’m here I’d really like to thank everyone who liked my page, and to everyone who liked the picture but didn’t win…. fret not! I’m planning on doing more of these giveaways in the future…. stay tuned!

This one is Brooke Mackay……. a colourful girl who is running with the deer!

Fuck Your Stereotype of Beauty

????????????????????????????????????

Inspired by one of my original Thoughts

8. My hairy legs make me growl like a bear (11.11.2011)

This little Zendoodle is fighting your perceptions of societally constructed beauty…

Hairy Legs

What do you think of her?

Ooo and you might be interested to know I’ve started up my Thought For The Day posts again. I’m doing so from Instagram… and if you’re feeling wonderful I’d love it if you’d give me a wee like over there :) @InkedThoughtForTheDay

The Silversmith’s Art

The other day we popped along to visit The Silversmith’s Art exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland… it was stunning!

This ground-breaking exhibition celebrates the exceptional creativity and skill which make Britain a world leader in modern silver. The Silversmith’s Art features 150 masterpieces made by 66 acclaimed silversmiths between 2000 and 2015.

I would thoroughly recommend a visit if you’re in the area, jeweller/silversmith or not it is a worthwhile nosey.

The design and craftsmanship is exceptional… and just seeing so much silver in one place is highly gratifying.

This next one was by far my favourite. The work that must have gone into this piece is immense. I am truly captivated, and in awe.

Incredible right?!

I always leave glorious exhibitions feeling ecstatically inspired… and woefully dejected. Will my work ever be that amazing?

One can only wish… and work really hard!
