// my body is aching all over today! 😩 why is my body 102 years old... anyway, I’m finishing off this beauty today, really pleased with it! 🌈 I’m thinking of exploring a few more similar to this maybe on a smaller scale ✨
2 more sleeps until my Exhibition & Im actually that excited to share with you everything that I’ve been working on ♡ It’s amazing what you can accomplish under pressure!
But just quietly- I think I’m even more excited about the idea of having the free time to surf again and wash off all these cobwebs ❃ ... It’s actually been so long and the restlessness of being studio-bound when it’s sunny and offshore has got me a little stir crazy at times. I’m just so grateful it’s been spent doing something I love so much and gives me loads of energy in return.. Cannot wait to celebrate with you all Friday Night! See you there,
Love Meeks xox
📝 I’ve got a small selection of illustrated notebooks here...each one has a watercolour pattern on one side and a wash or wash and print on the inside 📚 luxury plain paper thick enough for sketching, spiral bound for essays rippage and turning and a thick textured card cover 📖 I’m thinking a super cool secret Santa present or a gift for a budding artist and notebook lover 📓
Scene is set *courtroom of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz, the "Zanan Khana"* Mumtaz: *asks to go to Meena Bazar*
Shah Jahan: Request denied.
Mumtaz: *is sad*
Shah Jahan: *gets 58 slave girls to set up meena bazar inside the palace*
Mumtaz: *is happy*
Buuuttt apart from the quick overview of what's happening in the painting (tru story), interesting fact is that this painting has a shade that's not just golden, its GOLD. This is a miniature painting that you have to see properly through a magnifying glass, which by the way the painter did not use while he made the painting.
It's called Fresco work and its kept at the Fakhir Khana museum in Lahore.
Goudroze koraal vandaag! Woensdag kan dus nu al niet meer stuk met al die knal kleuren! Vandaag ga ik aan de slag met patronen tekenen voor kleding met de stoffen die ik heb laten drukken. Heb een hele zwierige rok in gedachten met ruitvormige panden ♦♦♦ 😍😍😍
Creativiteit AAN! Wie weet kan ik hem aan met oudjaar 😁
Ga jij vandaag ook iets creatiefs doen?
“In order to find yourself, who you really are, you got to be with yourself; you got to hang out with yourself.” -Post Malone • finally finished this drawing of @postmalone and I am ecstatic with how he turned out! I included a few progress pics...interesting people make the best subject matter • • •
The term “friendship” has been sterilized by our society. Friends aren’t acquaintances accrued by social media popularity. They can’t be numbered or removed from your life with the click of a button. Friends stain your soul; for better or worse. They leave an eternal mark. They comfort and console. They challenge. They argue and bicker. You give and they take. They love and you ignore. They grow and you grow in other directions. Friends meet you at a crossroads on your journey; they travel with you until the next fork and part ways. Friends stain your soul. •

Identity manifests as a result of circumstance. I am the product of joy, isolation, effortless love, tragedy, and experience. There is no wisdom without suffering; no growth without devastating pain and unyielding mirth. Be kind when the world is not. Be hopeful when surrounded by catastrophe.
