I know I’ve been MIA on here 😅 I also know that it’s been forever since I’ve urbansketched because my hair is sooo much longer now! I’m feeling a bit rusty these days. I’m hoping to make time on my day off to get back into it. ✨

I’ll get there 😊 ✨ #CharsMoodBook
I’ve been going through a lot of mental clutter for the past few months which made it difficult for me to focus on my art. That’s why I decided to take a step back to clear my headspace and to recollect all the things that matter most to me. ▲▼▲
As some of you may or may not know, I’ve been on this journey through Minimalism for four years now. In the beginning of my journey, I documented and shared my process with decluttering my stuff, curating my own capsule wardrobe, etc. Four years later, I have less stuff, more space, and I’ve been focused on becoming a better ME. I believe that this journey is ongoing and I still have A LOT of things to learn, but the one thing that Minimalism has helped me realize is who I am as an artist/illustrator.
With that said, I’ve decided to combine my passion (art) with my lifestyle (simple living/minimalism). This idea may or may not resonate with you but I realize that I’m not creating content for others, I’m creating it for myself. If you enjoy it, than that’s a plus. If it inspires you, than that’s a huge bonus! ▲▼▲
This concept will be going into my YouTube as well. Not sure when I’ll be creating new videos (currently struggling with time management 😅), but send me ideas!
I’ve been wanting to make a zine for a few years now but I just didn’t know what to make it about 🤔 Send me some fun ideas/topics because my mind is going blank lol.

Working on a part 2 of an illustration I did a couple years ago. Do you remember?
Moments I crave. ☕️👥
My current obsession: Cooking ASMR videos. One of my favorites is @cooking_tree and I wanted to draw their No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake because... ❤️😍 Not only do cooking ASMR videos reduce my anxiety and calm my mind, everything looks delicious and the video & audio quality is just AMAZING ✨👌🏽
Today I ate at a seafood buffet, caught up on some much needed sleep, made iced coffee and now I’m recharging my mind, body and soul. I’m easily drained when I’m around so many people, so an evening of silence and creating in my studio is what I truly need right now. ❤️
