Nina, the story of an imperfect mannequin


 

‘Throw her out with all the unwanted parts,’ a factory worker said to another. “No one is going to use a mannequin with a missing arm, legs and eye.”
They threw her in a fenced area behind the factory where there were many others like her.  She was relieved that there was a place she could fit it.
“Why is everyone here so sad and gloomy,” she asked.
“What’s there to be happy about when nobody wants us,” they answered.
“I’m sure there’s someone out there who wants us.”
They all burst out in laughter and mocked her.
“It’s good to have dreams, just keep them to yourself.”
Filled with disappointment, she dragged herself to a corner and cried until nightfall.
The stars and moon, shinning in all their glory, heard her crying.

Summer dress challenge: Week 1



Flower power!
Last week I decided to create a little challenge for myself called the 'summer dress challenge' where I am supposed to design and post four summer dresses a week for the next two to three weeks.
I am so behind on my  challenge, I should have posted the first two  dresses on Tuesday but I was down with the flu. Good thing the week is not yet over, here are my first two sketches with a flower theme. I did not want to overload on the flowers, can be a little over powering.





Two down, ten more to go ♥♥♥♥
which one would you wear?

Summer dress challenge

Hello beautiful people!!
So last night I stayed awake because I was determined to get my sketching skills from about four to a perfect ten. Well, I didn't exactly get close to a perfect 10 but there is no doubt at all that I have improved. I can even draw a face! Ladies and gentlemen I can finally draw a face!


Summer is finally upon us here in the beautiful Country of Zambia. Although its my least favorite season, I am a little excited about it and praying that I will not be stung by the lazy bug. So I created a challenge for myself, The Summer dress challenge. From Tuesday the 16th of September to Friday, the 3rd of October, I will design and post sketches of four summer dresses a week. who knows, I might just design your next favorite dress. Wish me luck.

Fashion mosiac

Happy Tuesday!!
Over the weekend I got up to a little art project that I have wanted to try out for a while now. It didn't come out as I had imagined it but I think it looks pretty cool plus my sketching is improving. For the mosaic part, I used African print fabric and bits from safety foam.

White Summer

 
 
 



 Summer is around the corner here in Zambia and I am already excited about it which is odd considering I am not a fan. The one thing I do love about summer are summer dresses and adorable sandals. I know I am no Hayden Williams when it comes to sketching but hopefully you are able to make out the design of this dress. During summer I like to be as comfortable as possible in my dressing. I think this dress would be good for summer, its pretty simple but still has a stylish-effortless edge to it.
