Dreaming In Color
Art, Heart & Words

lol so I’m a bit embarrassed but I’m going to write about my entire thought process behind this drawing anyway. This is not only not my first drawing of this color palette, but it’s not my first sad Myoku drawing, and it’s also not my first featuring Fall Out Boy lyrics. But like, I love […]


HI GUYS! I thought I’d post about what I’ll probably be up to for the next while. I can’t help it and I’d better just admit that wedding planning has completely overtaken my attention. Tonight, I happily crafted my little comic bubbles for my table markers while making my fiance help me. Didn’t even think […]

I’m pretty excited for this random product. I think I was browsing a generic shoujo blog on Tumblr and saw this tiny gif of someone paint bucketing a pair of shoujo girl eyes black to create a classic manga look. I saw it and I was all OKAY THIS NEVER OCCURRED TO ME, and then […]

I haven’t had any big serious projects to work on since “For Life,” but I’ve been making digital doodling a fairly regular part of my daily living lately. Here’s a collection of what I’ve kind of finished. When Ryan coined the verbage “Nerd Girl and Big Boobs” for me and my bestie, I couldn’t help […]

Well, my first full illustration with my new tablet is finally complete~! I think I started working on this the last week in July, and between transitioning into a new job, and fully committing to a rendered, detailed digital painting, this shit took foreeever. It came to me on my drive home in rush hour […]


So today was my Grandma Stewart’s funeral, and it was tearful and emotional and yet made me proud of my family. But in a very bittersweet sort of day, I also decided to use some extra money and my increasingly stable financial situation to UPGRADE my digital art life. With the help in many ways […]

I’ve been trying to wait till I finish my current digital coloring of a drawing I did during Super Stories this week, but it’s taking forever so I’m going to post what else I have instead. That can be its own damn post. Maybe then I’ll actually shade it too. In light of the murder […]

  If only it weren’t so perfectly transparent when it’s summertime and I start using pale yellow in ALL my pictures, hah. I bet you my color choices are actually seasonal though. Cool blues or dark reds for winter, warm pale yellows for summer, and sometimes heather pink. It’s teaching season right now and I’m […]


I really didn’t mean to go into blog hiding! It’s just weird when I’m in a graphic novel phase because all my artistic efforts go into pages which obviously get posted at http://cadence.melizabethart.com instead of here, and then I look silent and distant but I’m not. Here are the illustrations I’ve been working on in the last […]

I know it’s been forever since my last blog post! But it’s because I haven’t been doing illustrations since I’ve been busy WORKING ON CADENCE!!! AAAAAHHHH!!! It feels so fabulous to say I’m back at graphic novels. I’m making full use of all the extra time I have right now; the only thing I have […]

2016 has been a crazy, and somewhat unrewarding year so far. A big part of me couldn’t be surprised that after everything that was accomplished in 2015, 2016 just sort of…arrived. What’s worse, I stopped being particularly good at handling the stress of paying rent (for the first time), working full-time (which recently went through […]

Here I am! I’m back! I knew I’d guilt myself into a full blog with that last post. I’m at work, I’m putting together just the art that I have on my phone, and I’m realizing just how many art projects I’ve gotten done. The difference this time around that is actually pretty unique and […]
