I never understood how butterflies received their name. I always thought that flutterbies were more appropriate.

Hey everyone, this is Alana Marie! I'm 19 and originally from Boston. I love stars, freckles, glitter, and a whole myriad of bright shiny things.

The majority of my work is pointillism, but I love painting and illustration as well. If you ever have suggestions for people I should draw or want to do an art trade, just message me :heart:

Also, I only post my final pictures here on DA. To catch updates on my artwork or see how they progress day to day, check out the following links!

Hello beautifuls, it's definitely been a while.

Thanks for staying with me on my borderline hiatus this summer, I know I was pretty inactive, but life got pretty crazy. I've definitely been having a lot more artist block problems that I have in the past, which is unbelievably frustrating. Especially with the collaboration that I've been working on with :iconw-out: , which had basically been at standstill since early July. In fact, the portrait I just finished and posted of Jake Jones (… ) was a product of my procrastination on every other project that I'm supposed to be working on. I'm very very happy with the way it turned out, but I know that I still need to wrap up my other projects as well. 

On a brighter note, I've been experimenting with my collaboration piece and tonight I think I figured out what direction I want it to go, which you can check out here:… . I tried to approach this piece by assuming that I would make my drawing and completely overlay it with :iconw-out: 's gorgeous painting, but I think that this new take has a lot more integration, which I think is my goal. Anyways, I should have it done in the next week if everything goes as planned.

Another reason I was unproductive this summer was because I went to Italy with my soccer team (!!!) I had never been to Europe before, and so it was such an incredible experience. I've posted the photographs that I took on my flickr, so feel free to check them out:… . Some of them might also make an appearance on here, but I haven't decided yet.

I really hope to get back in the flow of creating art again and getting in touch with my inner creativity, so hopefully this year will be a little more successful as the fall and winter approaches. Thank you again for your continued support, and I'll do my best to be more active in the coming months!

Wow, jesus, sorry that I totally overlooked this. I've definitely been having inspirational problems as well here. I recently attended an environmental conference and took a bunch of sessions on environmental art and advocation where people are using photograph to document the protests, or making artwork that shows the destruction of our world, and it really moved me and made me think a lot about my own work. I feel like I've become very familiar and comfortable with drawing inspiration from musicians and drawing people I find beautiful, but in the end I've realized that this is a kind of superficial attraction. And I really want to change and adapt my artwork to reflect more of the things that interest and inspire me, particularly involving the environment, but it's been difficult so far.
