Where are my banana dessert fans?? 🙋🏼♀️🍌💗 #sneakpeek at the cake that’s coming your way tomorrow 🙌🏻 ...
For #the100dayproject I filled up an entire sketchbook with pencil studies of #100endangeredspecies Sometimes it took quite a few attempts to get the right feel for the shape and character of the species. Here you can see how my illustrations developed for the Amazonian manatee and pichi armadillo. Have a relaxing Sunday folks (I may head back to bed!- been up all night with a poorly dog 😓- but I did get to see an amazing starry sky at 2.30am 🌟) ...
Someone pinch me 😭. How is this even real?! This feels unreal. So many happy emotions and thoughts running in my mind right now. Brb as I cry in a corner *happy tears only* 💛
This week, I got to finally see, touch, & smell my book that took over a year to write.😆 It’s finally here, done, and ready to officially launch next month. This totally feels unreal and I have that butterfly feeling in my stomach 🦋 I just cannot believe it’s here, next to me, in my studio, on my desk. Ahhh💥 .
Real talk. When I saw this package arrive, I ran to my door with so much freakin excitement. As I grabbed the package, I took a deep breath before opening it. Suddenly, so many thoughts flooded my mind (hence the photo ;)). I was thinking this is it. All those sleepless nights, staying in at the hotel while traveling, so many sacrifices all poured into this book.💛 .
Writing a book was so not easy & so time consuming, but I wouldn’t trade any of it. I learned so much during this process and learned so much about myself. I doubted myself so many times during this process, but I did it. Anything IS possible as long as you believe in the process and yourself. Make those dreams come true! ⚡️ .
& I cannot wait to celebrate with you in September at @m.lovewell at my book launch party. 🎉 Link in bio to RSVP! This book officially launches on 8/27. 🙌 Preorders are still happening and during this preorder campaign, I’ll be sending you tons of freebies if you preorder before the launch date. Link in bio for more details🌟
