    Taking time for your art is taking time for yourself. - Lana Del Rey Arts school student. I love fashion design, drawing, singing, reading, flowers, anime, ball jointed dolls, music, photography, movies, shows like F.R.I.E.N.D.S and New Girl, gothic and baroque architecture, Eruri and Jeanmarco. 

    My brother killed himself
    on the twenty-eighth Thursday of last year
    and I missed four days of work
    and my mom wanted to know ‘Why’.
    My brother
    he was always a fan of beauty
    but what he did
    was not beautiful at all.

    And last week I got the news
    that one of my good friends from high school
    had overdosed
    (again)
    except this time
    she’d gone too far
    and now she was gone.
    And I had a hard time falling asleep at night
    and her mother
    hugged me tight
    and thanked me for coming to the service
    but I did not
    want to be there at all.
    This is not
    beautiful.

    The girl down the street
    would’ve turned 21 last year
    and I can scarcely imagine
    the wild times she would’ve
    (should’ve)
    had.
    But she is buried six feet deep
    after falling nearly 300
    and she did not leave a note.
    This is not
    beautiful.

    My freshman year of college
    and my roommate was beautiful
    and how I wanted to be just like her.
    But she wore herself down
    till she was
    almost invisible
    and if you blinked
    you had to go and find her all over again.
    So now her parents are no longer supporting her college tuition
    but are paying her hospital bills
    watching their daughter crumble.
    This is not
    beautiful.

    So y’all can take your narcissistic
    romanticizing
    and glamorizing
    of self harm and eating disorders and committing suicide
    and shove them as far up your ass
    as you possibly can.
    Starvation is not beautiful.
    Killing yourself is not beautiful.
    Sadness
    is not beautiful.
    This note I am writing
    is not beautiful.

    But you
    you are beautiful
    and it’s about damn time you start believing it.

Model reading music in evening gown by Charles James, 1950.
James looked upon his dresses as works of art, as did many of his customers. Year after year, he reworked original designs, ignoring the sacrosanct schedule of seasons. He is most famous for his sculpted ball gowns made of lavish fabrics and to exacting tailoring standards.

    When I’m a parent I’m definitely going to ask my child often “are you okay?” I never want my child to be crying their eyes out when I’m peacefully sleeping under the same roof and I certainly never want them to feel like there’s nobody there for them. Because I always will be

    Intricate Handmade Fantasy Creatures by Ellen Jewett

    on Etsy | on deviantART

    Born in Markham, Canada, Ellen Jewett took to shaping three-dimensional forms naturally at a young age. To Ellen, sculpting has always been about life, biological narratives and cultural statements. The tedious hours of labor act as the mysterious foundation from which each of her sculptures’ personality springs forth.

    In 2007 Ellen completed her post secondary education with a degree in Biological Anthropology and Art Critique from McMaster University. She had already started Creatures from El in 2005 and upon graduation plunged into it full-time.

    Ellen continues to supplement her knowledge with professional courses and apprenticeships. She aspires to pursue graduate work in anthrozoology whilst maintaining her life as a studio artist.
