Let’s be real for a second: I am not the most confident person in the world. I have days where I believe in and love myself very much, and then, you know… some days I just don’t. I don’t think I’m terrible or anything, but sometimes I’m just not exactly who I want to be – and while that’s normal, and it’s great motivation to never stop trying to be a better person, sometimes it also makes things rough.
I often question myself, or my decisions, or my choices. I wonder if my blog offers value to anyone, I wonder if my attempts to inspire actually make a difference, I wonder if the colorful art I make is actually something people like, or if they’re just being nice. Self-doubt is a familiar friend to me, one that’s kept me company for longer than I can remember, and one that’s not always actually welcome – but hangs around anyway.
The point to this ramble is that sometimes, doing something as simple as promoting myself, or my shop, or my art, feels really difficult to me. It feels self-serving, which I guess it is, but with more of a negative connotation than I want associated with myself – even if only to myself. While I fully support my friends and other creators promoting themselves, and while that doesn’t seem skeevy or lame to me when I see it, something flips when it’s me doing it, and it turns sour. I know this isn’t rational, and I know it’s something I need to work on – so that is exactly what I intend to do!
Remember that thing about never stop trying to be better, and to be the person you want to be? The person I want to be is confident in the things she makes, and in sharing them with people – regularly! So that’s what I’m gonna do! And I’m gonna start right now, with this little blog post that will essentially turn into revolving feature that showcases some of the things I’ve created or have to offer in my shop.
Thanks to the people who read my blog, and share my posts, and buy my art. Your support means so much to me!
What’s in the Let’s Get Galactic Art shop? Today I’m featuring…
Wednesday Addams & Lydia Deetz Inspired Portraits and Bookmarks
I made these prints & bookmarks based off of two of my favorite creepy girls in pop culture – Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice, and Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family! Both girls are quintessential “teen goth girl” goals, and I probably couldn’t choose a favorite if I wanted to. (Okay, maybe Wednesday, but only because she’s more sarcastic, and I’m a sucker for a snarky attitude lol).
The portraits are sold as prints for $6 each, and are laser printed on quality card stock, ready to be framed or displayed however best suits your decorating style!
Each of my bookmarks are $5, and are laser printed on even thicker card stock (for durability through use while reading!). Each one is double-sided, with original watercolor art and quotes on one side, and original acrylic rainbow art on the other!
All of the above are eligible for free shipping, so don’t miss out! I also have lots of other prints & bookmarks if spooky pop culture girls aren’t your thing! 😉
