#inktober day 16. Fat This morning I thought it was a nice moment to do Inktober again. So I looked up the prompt list again and I saw the theme for today was Fat. I was a little startled, that word brings me anxiousness. Since a young age I’ve been remembered by all kinds of people that I’m not the skinniest person. In high school I’ve been bullied daily with my appearance, they called me pig and spitted in my face. A very easy target I surely was, as that tiny quirky dressed girl, refusing to follow the big crowd. Drawing was my escape, I drew girls, skinny girls. I always wished I could transform in one of these drawings. Not only the high school losers damaged my self image, my parents would tell me several times I would look better if I lost some weight. I don’t think they were conscious of hurting me, but their words surely did. Over the last years I’ve lost weight, gained it, lost it and gained it again. There is a lot of anger in my head, how can I be such a failure, a miserable and weak person. Still everyday there are words going through my head, telling me that I’m not good enough. Still everyday I am worried and overthinking of how people will see me. But I feel I’m growing stronger by day, stronger in my own beautiful body and vanquishing the harmful thoughts. Because is someone really a weak person when they are following their passion, working hard and are surrounded by beautiful people. I don’t know who I am writing this to, but I am sure that there will be people out there struggling with similar issues. I want to tell you that you are so much more than the size of your tights, the form of your hips and the label in your clothes. Don’t hurt yourself they way others never should have done. β™₯️ β€’ β€’ β€’ #lauraliza #illustration #Inktober2017 #fat #fatshaming #bodypositive #selflove #woman #boobs #curvy #freethenipple #fountainpen #illustrate #sketching #creativeart #creative #inspiration #sketch #drawing #painting #callforart #illustrationart #watercolour #ink #myart #instaart #artcall #illustrationartist
#inktober day 8. Crooked The pressure is high, the mind is overflowing. Never is anything enough. How can we still be proud of ourselves when we are only looking past who we actually are. πŸŒ™ β€’ β€’ β€’ #lauraliza #illustration #Inktober2017 #ecoline #fountainpen #illustrate #sketching #moleskine #moleskineart #spokenword #creativeart #creative #inspiration #lettering #sketch #drawing #painting #artcall #callforart #illustrationart #watercolour #ink #myart #illustrationartists #instadraw #instaart #blackandwhite #lineart #artwork
#inktober day 7. Shy On some days I wish I could disappear with the wind, that no one would have seen my weird appearance, heard my strange sentences, to just disappear with the clouds in the sky. On some days, I can be that shy. ☁️ β€’ β€’ β€’ #lauraliza #illustration #Inktober2017 #ecoline #fountainpen #illustrate #sketching #moleskine #moleskineart #shortpeopleproblems #creativeart #creative #inspiration #lettering #sketch #drawing #painting #artcall #callforart #illustrationart #watercolour #ink #myart #illustrationartists #instadraw #instaart #blackandwhite #lineart #artwork

#inktober day 4. Underwater Today is the theme underwater for Inktober, but it’s also animal day in Holland. See what I did there! And please, don’t eat an animal today, thanks!

#inktober day 3. Poison πŸ”ͺ We are all poisoned by the eyes of others, eyes who are not looking in the same direction. Eyes who are trying to take you down, jealous eyes. Those eyes are blind for true compassion and honesty. Let us be stronger than the poisoned eyes, let us be strong enough to open the eyes of the blinded. Let us be the antidote. πŸ‰πŸ’‰ β€’ β€’ β€’ #lauraliza #illustration #Inktober2017 #ecoline #fountainpen #illustrate #sketching #moleskine #moleskineart #monday #creativeart #creative #inspiration #lettering #sketch #drawing #painting #artcall #callforart #illustrationart #watercolour #ink #myart #illustrationartists #instadraw #instaart #blackandwhite #lineart #artwork
#inktober day 2. Divided πŸ‘Ύ The first attempt of this illustration didn’t worked out so well, the paper was picking up the ink really badly (as you can see in my story). So I picked up my trusty Moleskine aquarelle book and made it again. This also made me think of some goals, because I always have to make things a challenge for my self. As I am not sure if I’m gonna keep up with Inktober, I still want to try to make an illustration everyday and make one with a different color palette, shapes and subjects. But also give myself the space to stay in my comfort zone on lazy days, because I’m still doing this for fun πŸ’©πŸ“―πŸ–‹ β€’ β€’ β€’ #lauraliza #illustration #Inktober2017 #ecoline #fountainpen #illustrate #sketching #moleskine #moleskineart #monday #creativeart #creative #inspiration #lettering #sketch #drawing #painting #artcall #callforart #illustrationart #watercolour #ink #myart #illustrationartists #instadraw #instaart #blackandwhite #lineart #artwork
