WRECKLESS - NEW ILLUSTRATIONS!

Good news, I'm drawing and sketching again. I'm happy to feel the inspiration slowly coming back to me. I decided to publish some of my work on a new Instagram account that will only feature some of my artistic creations. You can check it out here. My main inspirations are mostly skateboarding, the 90s era, some girly characters, pastel colors, etc.

RAD COLLECTION INSPIRED BY THE SKATE SCENE

There are a few clothing brands I will cherish forever. The Ragged Priest is one of them. They're always on top of the latest fashion trends and all their pieces are super fun, unique and original.
Sometimes I felt like if they read my mind and then released a collection that I was secretly dreaming of. And this is basically what happened with their new lookbook!

MEET THE SKATER GIRL : MARISA

I've been thinking of doing this new segment on my blog for a while now. Having to deal with some health issues along the way made me put all of those ideas a little behind. While I'm still working on feeling better, I was able to work on this project here and there and I'm so glad I did!

So here's the main idea: I thought it would be interesting to feature some rad skater girls on the blog. I follow a bunch of them online and find them all so inspiring! It's basically like a small community out there; everyone follows each other and encourage others who lands a new trick or it gets us all pumped to try a trick we saw online, etc.

The first shredder to be featured on the blog is Marisa Garcia. She's such a sweet girl! Not only she's a rad skater but she's also a super creative mind. She likes to make art by designing shirt graphics and also creating some pieces of clothing! Check out the interview I did with her :)

'IT'S NOT ABOUT PRETTY' A BOOK ABOUT RADICAL SKATER GIRLS

In case you don't who she is already, let me introduce you to Cindy Whitehead. She became one of the top ranked professional female pro vert skateboarder back in the 70s. Step by step, she slowly made her place in this male-dominated sport. Being fierce and confident, nothing could have stopped her. To this day she's the only female to have been featured in the centerfold plus a two-page article in a skateboard magazine. This is huge y'all!

Over the last 25 years, she worked as a fashion stylist for various sports companies and athletes.
In 2010 she created her own brand named ''Girl is NOT a 4 letter word''. She signed with the largest company in professional skateboarding and designed a skateboard specifically for the female market. Not to mention that she was introduced into the Skateboarding Hall of Fame on May 13, 2016, with an introduction by legendary rock'n roll icon, Joan Jett.

NEW E-POLETTE GLASSES TO PROTECT MY EYES + GIVEAWAY

I recently decided to update my eyeglasses for a brand new pair. It's crazy how changing your glasses can make you feel like just got a makeover! It has the same effect as going to the hairdresser for a complete transformation! Right? Anyway, I found a cute thin and delicate metal frame on Polette's website. Most of the time, I usually tend to go with the plastic frames but since I already own two pairs, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and go with a metal frame. These vintage looking glasses are SO on trend right now and I find them so original and pretty.

So these glasses were part of the e-polette collection. This means they're non-prescription glasses with lenses that have a light-yellow filter that will protect my eyes from the blue light emitted by LED-screens.
