They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts. It’s kind of hard to count when no one can see your insides.”
Step inside my mind palace
Stroll to the seat of my vision
Watch scenes flicker by
Plastered to the backs of my eyes
Things I’ve never done
See what I see
Dream what I dream
Plug into me
(If only I could spell “please” right. Sorry, right eye, old pal).
Week 4: Four-Legged Friend
Yes, yes, I know. I’m late on this post. It won’t happen again! (That is a lie). Anywho, we all know the term “four-legged friend” typically refers to an animal, but of course all I could imagine in my head was several of my friends with an extra pair of legs protruding from their bodies. Here is my rendition of my four-legged Kerri friend.

So, I’ve yet to share any of my YouTube videos on here. I don’t know why that is, but here is one I’ve recently made. It’s a video about me. I’m not making it public until tomorrow, so you guys will have a bit of a sneak peek. Enjoy.
P.S. If you like the content on my channel you can like my Facebook page for updates and such.

Week 3: Plant
This was a simple one. So, I decided to draw Monsieur Cacti Esquire XIII with a top hat, monocle, etc., because I believe plants have lives too. Fancy ones, nonetheless. Perhaps in their own little plant lives they throw little plant parties while we’re all turned the other way. Rock on you fancy plants.

My eyes roll open, it’s a new day. New possibilities in store, new ideas to come. There’s something scratching at the back of my brain. Nagging at me. Addiction. How could the first thing I want when I wake up be to waste away on the computer? There’s a vast, beautiful world out there, and the first thing I want is to plug into virtual reality and simply sit for hours on end.
The sun beats down on my pale skin, caressing me. Finally, outside. I lay there, grass scratching at the small of my back. A gentle breeze kisses my face. That’s when it happens. Of course that’s when it happens. I see it, unbelievable. I see the most extraordinary thing in the near distance. I sit up. I feel it; the urge, the addiction. I need to photograph this, film it, something. Only, I’ve forgotten my camera. A punch to my needy gut. I can’t even relax without a hint of craving for technology.
My knuckles rap on the plain door. My friends invited me over. Typically, when asked to hang out, I imagine people go out to do lovely things. My friends like to stay inside, do the same thing each time kind of thing, which I am okay with. Anyway, my friends are all waiting for me when I get in. It’s cold inside. The artificial chill nips at the back of my neck and reaches my toes. I tell them to pick out a movie (standard routine) while I go grab a blanket. I make my way down the hallway and pick out the fluffiest blanket with a big tiger printed on it, my favorite. I head back to the living room, blanket in hand. They’ve already started a movie and I notice they all have colorful, chunky somethings resting in their hands. I see lights flickering from their little screens throughout the movie. Oh, phones. They don’t even acknowledge, or maybe they just don’t notice, the remarks I make during the movie. They each appear to have molded a sort of strong, physical connection between their hands and their phones. It appears unreal to them to detach from technology while merely watching a movie.
Technology on technology on technology.
“Alright, so that was interesting. Actually, I rather enjoyed that a lot. I’m not much of a writer, but I thought I’d try something new out. Free writing isn’t so bad. This subject has been kind of nagging at me for a while; the constant addiction to technology we’ve all grown. So I thought I’d give it a go to make up these stories on how I feel about it. Ohh, this love/hate relationship with technology kills me. Constantly wanting to smash my computer into tiny, little pieces, only to realize that I can’t possibly get anything done without it. How do you feel about technology nowadays?” ∞ △ Ever Fawkes
Week 2: Self
Ooh, this one was quite challenging for me. Be it drawing, painting, etc., people are just not my strong point in art. As you can see lips are definitely not my forte. But that’s the whole point of this challenge: TO CHALLENGE MYSELF. I’m hoping by the end of this yearlong test I will have improved skills and possibly my ability to draw people will improve. I’m always open to any constructive criticism, so let me know what I could do to better my people-drawing skills! ☺

Week 1: Your Choice
This week’s drawing was originally inspired by some shapes I saw and eventually turned into this character that I call Sia. She’s a bit mysterious. In a way she is a reflection of me, or rather, what I strive to be. She is at peace, she is free.
Time for a new challenge!
Hello there, lovely people!
So, I’ve been craving chocolate chip cookies for a while. I went on a search for a recipe that fit my vegan needs. I came across this recipe that seemed pretty simple, and they looked delicious! I found it here, but if you’re one of those people too lazy to click on the link I’d gladly instruct you on how to bake said cookies. Plus, I’ve tried to simplify the instructions and added pictures for your benefit. Alright, let’s begin!
The end product:
