eyeseelife-deactivated20100922 asked: Hey, I found you on the Eat, Sleep, Draw blog! Your work is so raw and haunting, I absolutely love it. I actually wanted to major in Fine Art as well, but I changed my mind and decided that Illustration would be better for me. I'll be attending Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA starting September 11th. Have you heard of it? Anyway, thank you for the follow! My name's Elyn, and it's nice to meet you Elise :)

Hello Elyn! Thank you, that really means a lot that someone other than the people I went to college with and my family actually enjoy my work ha. That’s fabulous that you decided to go to school for what you’re passionate about. You’re going to love it. My first year was difficult but then it’s so rewarding. Good luck! i’ll be checking in to see what you’re making :)
