Hi, I'm Becky, 18, living in the UK. This is my fandom blog, My personal blog will be linked here soon. My fandoms include Sherlock, Doctor who, Hannibal, Merlin, Supernatural and many other that would take all day to list.
In my spare time I draw, sing and play the ukulele aswell.
Ivorylungs started this brilliant movement called “bad art is good art" to help encourage the newbies out there who have just come into themselves as artists and who are struggling against harsh criticism and hate on the web. (I’m a little late to the party but you guys have no clue how deep into my closet I had to venture to get those damn oldies okay? Seriously… I got fucking lost back there. It’s really dark.)
Despite popular belief (and I have no idea where it came from), talent doesn’t happen overnight. It’s cultivated, nurtured, and practiced day in and day out, sometimes for many years. Artists aren’t born talented either, but I believe that we are born with a brilliant sense of awareness of what makes the world beautiful and we strive to be able to capture that ourselves.
One thing my professor said to me my sophomore year, and I’ll never forget it, he said: “For every good drawing, there are 100 bad drawings”.
You’re all amazing. Just keep practicing. Believe in yourself. Draw every single day. And don’t you DARE let anyone’s artwork or words convince you that your passion isn’t worth fighting for because it absolutely is. The journey might be rough, but GOSH is it ever worth it. Don’t give up.
The Pope for people who don’t like popes strikes again.
HE WAS ALSO A BOUNCER AT A NIGHTCLUB
Pope Francis has also shed the trappings of wealth that generally accompany his position (golden cape, ornate throne) in favor of white threads and a simple wooden chair. He’s also the first Pope to wash a woman’s feet, insisting that it’s what Jesus Christ would have done. Even if you’re not religious you can appreciate that this is a genuinely good man, and a wonderful leader of the Catholic Church.
If only this would spread like wildfire through people’s hearts. He is a very nice light in a time of darkness surrounding the church and its people.
