For approximately the fiftieth time, I came across something on Tumblr (queue a unanimous groan) that I want to share with you all - Before I discuss it, I just want to urge all those in need of some inspiration, laughs, anything to make a Tumblr - Even if you don't want to post anything, it's a great way to see art, fashion, news, whatever you're into. However, do so at your own risk: It's an addictive hobby, if that's what you could call it.
Anyway, my latest artsy obsession is these wonderfully weird doodles: Some are rather simplistic in form and look a child's drawing/anime hybrid, whilst others resemble some tripped out henna designs. The sketches are often accompanied with a small piece of text: I've found in a lot of cases that this text is really simple and perhaps a little petty or immature, but paired with such strange and abstract drawings, they give off a feeling of vulnerability and/or deepness- or is it just me?I don't know, I may just be reading into things a little too much.
For a while I had no idea who was doing these drawings, although I very well wished I did. Only last night did I find a Facebook link to one particular creator of these incredible drawings: Her name is Beverly Salas, and I was delighted to find even more of her work on her page. I think it's fair to say that I'm in love with her work, and that she deserves a whole lot more recognition for her wonderful talent! I envy anyone with such talent to draw and draw a full page of flawless trippiness in such detail - whenever I try, it turns to a lopsided mess and I run out of ideas of what to draw next. Kudos!
