Here and There

Space and Time

______I'm glad that most of you enjoyed hearing about my dream in that last post (and I seriously had a nice time reading all of yours, as well!).  I think it's tons of fun to write down dreams and reflect on them, and sometime this summer, I'd really like to start illustrating mine.  I think that'd be fun--drawing something that you barely remember and all.  Sometimes, I'll only recall snippets of dreams, such as how last night I was a secret agent on a mission in a post-apocalyptic hospital and ran into my partner agent dude who warned me about the swarm of earplug bees that were on their way.  Thanks for the warning, fellow secret agent bro!

______Bahaha, but alas--my dreams have yet to be illustrated anytime soon.  However, until then, here's a little collection of some drawings and such from my sketchbook so far this year.

You know you're, like, REALLY good at art, right? Cause man, it's SO apparent to me! From your photography to your painting to your quick sketches, I am just as in love with these posts as I am with your outfit posts! :) You're just so creative--and it's nice to see that side of ya haha! :)
My favorite is the one of the guy falling. And my favorite from a few posts ago I remember when you said your art teacher made you cut up a picture you'd made. THAT was cool! So yeah, you basically rock and STICK WITH THAT ART GIRL! One of my best friends is an artist who's graduated from college and she sells a bunch of her stuff on Etsy. She's the one who I always do photoshoots with-not sure if "Echoing Waters" rings a bell but thats her! And she has etsy shops with paintings too. And shes a photog! You should seriously consider selling some of your stuff--you're talented Ali! XO
p.s. i gotta go check out that "dream" post-I wanna know about your dream! I'm making my way back in my bloglovin so I'll get there eventually haha :)

You are soo good! I love all your little hair styles, that is so cute.

Illustrating your dreams sounds like it would be a lot of fun, and clearly something you'd enjoy since you like surrealist art!

Wow, your art is amazing! Brilliant idea to illustrate something you barely remember. I should try that. :) Also, it sounds like you have the most epic dreams ever! You're always going on missions, I'm jealous!

I seem to have the tension to only remember nightmares, but sometimes I have amazing dreams I remember for days or weeks. Dreams are so inspirational, right?

Right, so I'm sure I've said this before're AMAZING! And just because I'm saying it again doesn't mean it's any less true. I'm continually impressed by your talent Ali! You're a true artist - you have an eye for it. Its like Rory said...we can see from your photography, to your drawings, and even in your fashion sense! Haha, and I love showering you with compliments ;)
Anyway, that'd be the ultimate dream journal. Forget writing it down - illustrate it! :D
