Since the artist reception for "To Color America" has wrapped, I'd like to thank everyone who came out to show love and to everyone who left with a piece (prints, earrings, and more) from DomoINK. I'm happy to say I sold some original artwork as well. I've spent a lot of time and invested a lot of energy into these pieces. I haven't counted, but I was able to create these 30-40 pieces over the course of a year. It is exciting to see the fruits of my labor. Thank you all again!

Art in place of fear
Art in place of insecurity
Art is a love language
Art is a gateway drug
Art is a valid and valuable career
Art is the expression of personal traumas and truths
Art derives from the Latín word meaning skill
Art is an avenue for change
Art is change itself
Art is an extension of the artist

🚨Long post alert!!! 🚨

Hey everyone! I’ve been going through so many changes lately- in myself and in my art. I turned 27 this year and suddenly found myself feeling the shortness of life peaking its head through the cracks of my mind. I’ve struggled for YEARS on which direction I thought my life should go in, always falling into the same pattern trap combo of putting things off and coasting.😒

For the longest time I was terrified that I had no true ambition because I’d always get stuck in the planning stages of things never acting on anything. A life of always being told what to do, when and how to do it turned me into the a huge people pleaser and honestly diminished my passionate spirit. I graduated with a BFA in Illustration without the hope that I’d ever actually succeed. •
All that gloom aside, I think I may have found my creative calling. I kinda love photography you guys. 🙌🏽Never in a million years would I have thought I’d feel the deep satisfaction that comes with capturing that perfect moment. 😍 I never dreamed that I would pick up a camera with the intention to create something beautiful, shocking or thought provoking. I’ve found a way to express myself through another form of art that makes me feel like ME. 📸

I’m so excited for the future y’all, and I am so excited to see the woman I become. I’m in the portfolio building stage right now and will be posting my most recent work here whilst finishing up my website. DM me and let’s create something weird and awesome together!! 💃🏽

If you made it to the end of this novel, I just want to say that you are amazing and I hope that anyone out there struggling with their own identities knows that you are not alone! Keep holding on and keep pushing forward because YOU are worthy. The world needs you and it needs👏🏽 your👏🏽 art! 👏🏽

/On Anxiety & Self-care - part 2/
.
Ever since I was young, I’ve been able to create from my anxiety. It was a way for me to explore my thoughts through a looking glass. The anxiety never really went away, but it became so manageable that I could breathe. I was never bullet proof, but I was protected.
.
A few months ago, it became clear that art was no longer the tool I needed to handle my anxiety. I spent the better part of the spring witnessing my anxiety expand, without any tools to protect or even distract myself. I would call it a void because it wasn’t replaced by anything. It was as if I had stopped subscribing to my home-made self-care plan. I realised that my art is now about empowerment and that for the past few years, my art has been about strength, politics and change. My art isn’t just about me anymore and in that, the safety of pouring my anxiety into it disappeared. This is exactly where I want to be in my expression, it just doesn’t offer the same release anymore.
.
So, I had to look for other methods of self-care. Anything that could replace what art once was. I started to look closely at my relationships and distanced myself from anyone that didn’t contribute to my wellbeing. I prioritized this because it would eventually allow me to build surroundings I was safe in. I started to address the root of the anxiety and not the symptoms. For all these years, anxiety has been a cloud in my sight so I’ve had a hard time addressing actual trauma. My main focus with self-care is to liberate my mind but before I could do that I had to be honest with myself, and the people around me. I started to set limits around my discomfort and forced my mind to stay within those limits as to gain some control over my thoughts. Now, self-care has become all about listening to myself and allowing recovery to happen naturally, in whatever form it chooses to take.
.
It took a lot to get here and the set-backs are constant. Still, I feel strong as fuck and braver than I’ve ever been, and that makes it worth it.
