Thinking about Summer in Sydney while I snuggle up in chilly Germany. Honestly the only time of year you should be visiting Australia is in Summer!

'Flowers I gave myself (and forgot you'd given me, too)'. Interpret as you will- thought I'd just share a page of sketches rather than a finished work for once ☀️

This is the 23 year old girl from Australia you have supported throughout 2018 with a like, a kind word, a follow or a purchase. I know that my Instagram account is mostly about my illustrations but there is a real human being sitting here typing this out, and you've made her so happy. Thank you so much for supporting me this year, I love creating and sharing my illustrations and life with you. Let's keep killing it in 2019 ☀️

I made this 3D artwork and a bunch of stuff for my room- been a long time since I've had a permanent set up and it definitely feels nice to nest and decorate as I please. In other news, I will be reducing my IG usage until Feb while I take a long self-care stint. Happy holidays!

Sneak peek of what I'm working on for 2019- literally bigger and better things. It's been so exciting to start exploring a new medium and using a jig saw rather than a stylus! Can't wait to bring my illustrations to life as sets, stages and an immersive exhibition ♡ let's work together ? #martinamartianinstallations

❤ RESTOCKED ♥️ It's here! I hope this calendar is a year-long positive reminder for your home or workplace 😁 I've even included sections for you to focus on your goal for the month (because nothing is better than physically writing it and displaying it where you can see it every day) and highlighting the best part of your month (because there always is one!) 😁 12 original illustrations, including a great quote by @sahajkohli 'SELF LOVE IS NOT SELFISH'. See my stories for more details and all artworks included in the calendar ♥️

The only person you should ultimately care about impressing, is yourself.
If you're centering your success upon impressing/beating someone else- then they still win. Because at the end of the day it's STILL about them, not you. Do it for YOU, succeed for yourself, make yourself proud instead. Anyway, that's what I learnt in 2018 and it's been very freeing

3.4Billion views of my GIFs/stickers as of this morning! Unfathomable! This is one of a couple of new GIFs I've uploaded for you to use in your stories (they should go live by morning, it takes a little while)

Anyone else's laptop look like this? 😬 Swipe to peek my new Adventure stickers (Xmas gift idea?), inspired by my travels and newfound sense of adventure 😁 my brother and I run my little online store together so consider supporting an independent small family business this holiday season! All printed in Australia ♥️

'How to Create a Repeat Pattern Wallpaper' tutorial, link in bio! #AdobePartner Very excited to share this free tutorial over at @adobecreate on how to create a basic repeat pattern wallpaper for your phone using #AdobeIllustrator and @AdobeDrawing. It's okay if you're a beginner! This is just SUCH a good skill to have up your sleeve - you can turn any illustration into a beautiful pattern for your wallpaper, fabric, website background etc. The possibilities are endless. #AdobePartner #AdobeInsiders
