My new artsy blog header

Hi everyone! I’m really excited at the moment, amidst the chaos of another full semester at Uni, I have chosen an art class to help keep the stressful workflow under wraps. Truth be told it’s likely to make things harder, but if it’s something you love then it can’t possibly be work, right?

Part of our final grade for this unit will be judged on our newly created art ‘blog’. You can probably guess my reaction to learning we had to create one. face-palm oh, no! Not a blog! 😛

Honestly I was so happy to hear it was part of the class, one, because I can’t paint to save myself and I’m going to need a grade boost somewhere, and two… well, you know… casually pointing around this site. Cough. I’m pretty darn addicted to blogging.

I decided it was best to start the website with a header image that was unique, but also simple to make. Time is certainly not my friend, these days. So, I went straight for a drawing I already had. You might remember my illustrated wings. The self-portrait is new, although now I have realised I draw all my ‘people’ in the same way. I guess its my… thing. 😮

Now here comes the sad part ya’ll. I’m going to have to apologise to you all in advance. It’s difficult to say whether I will have as much time as I have had, to update Beautiful Kayekie while school is in. Between family, work, four classes and now a new blog, I’m afraid I’m going to have to slow down.

But don’t eat an entire tub of ice-cream in tears just yet! I will share (the best) art posts from my new project, and beauty-goodness as often as I can. Hand on my heart. 😀

(something tells me I’ll miss you all too much, and will be back blogging at regular pace lol)

      Aww thank you beautiful, you are too kind. I thought about it, but honestly it is so boring! I have to post things like mixed colour tests and talking about the ” subjectivity and objectivity” of art lol! Really yawn worthy stuff 😉

      But! When my paintings are finished ill share them… So long as they don’t look like chewed up dog food. lol!
