I've had some requests to convert my blog into a tumblr because people found it hard to share and follow my blog/work!
Here is my new tumblr link: http://heimav.tumblr.com/
See you all there, I'm doing my exams currently and still posting the old stuff on my tumblr just to start it up BUT I AM working on some new stuff so stay tuned x

Sorry for not updating in a while! In the spirit of a new year, I have decided that I am going to put 110% more effort into my work to really figure out where I want to go with my style and techniques. I want to keep getting better and better at my work.
I have also created a tumblr to post my work more regularly on there. I thought it would be easier for you guys to follow me on it rather than blogspot. But I'm still going to use both, so no worries.
If you find something I posted on tumblr, feel free to reblog it and please do not remove the source. It would be great for my networking and for other artists to see it as well, as there may be collabs in the future.
I will add a few more links to make this site more easy to navigate. I have some other stuff to post so stay ~* tuned.
I've also gotten really interested in astrophysics/space in general lately, and I'm thinking of doing a coloured series of different interpretations of space (see first picture). What do you think about that?
Started the new year at school lately. Not many big projects happening right now, but I do have some work to show you. My last year's project was my painting of two kids in my classroom.

I used oil paints
Next is 1/3 of my collaboration with Georgiana, it will feature 2 more panels like this of people I find inspirational and empowering. The first panel is of Lupita Nyong'o. I drew Lupita, scanned it, and then sent it to Georgiana who did the amazing, vibrant background. Once we're both finished with the other two panels, there will be a whole post focussing purely on our collaboration together.

This surely is a more colourful post than I expected.

My friend Rupa saw my 'Sad Eyes' drawing. She loved it and requested for a few drawings! Apart from that, I am overwhelmed by the unconditional support from my family and friends. My internet best friend of 3 years, Dani, my photographer pal mentioned me in an interview with The White Pepper. She has always tried to promote my work and always encourages me to work work work! We are discussing a collaboration which will ensue soon.
On another note, a friend named Jolene loved the 'Sad eyes' drawing as well. She wants to get it tattoo-ed on her wrists/foream though it hasn't been decided yet. I am so incredibly excited for the day when she gets it! More information on that soon.
These are my two dear friends from my art class: Isaac and Jack. I drew them in preparation for my final project. Previously, I had taken pictures of them in the photo studio and then I drew them later by 'blind drawing', my favourite drawing technique.
I don't usually post my old things, especially if I don't find them very impressive. I decided to post these because they were a part of my developing stage a long time ago. The first is song lyrics copied and layered over eachother in a motif-like pattern. I basically took a page from my experimenting sketchbook and etched down every phrase I heard while I was listening to the album 'Dye it Blonde' by Smith Westerns. That album is so dreamy and fun that I really wanted to make some sort of work from it.
The yellowed drawings come from the same sketchbook, but I did them last year on the plane to New York. I watched countless movies on my trip (typical me). There were stills that really captured me in its unmoved charm. I quickly whipped out my sketchbook and started sketching out the paused movie scene with my fine Artline pen.
The last drawing is an experimentation with a more minimalistic drawing style. The sad eyes belong to a girl on my cover of 'Norwegian Wood' by Haruki Murakami. I did it late in the night.
