Destruct to Create.

New on going project I’m working on where I take photos and manipulate them to recreate a classic work of art. With the same color scheme and elements. So excited for this one.

First painting of the series is Van Gogh classic painting Starry Night an oil on canvas that he created June 1889.
The painting of which indicated later that he must have suffered of a disorder called Manic Depression or Bipolar.

It’s 1 am. It’s definitely still cold. I’m listening to Slowdive. It’s been a while since I shoegazed my night off. But today I have a good reason to. I woke up this morning and straightened my hair and wore a black velvet top with slim strabs, a leopard print jacket, a choker and a high wasted black shorts with black leggings and black boots. I didn’t notice the 90’s vibe until I looked in the mirror! I loved this look so much so I decided to revisit some of my favorite 90’s music and movies, naturally shoegaze was the first to come to my mind, I’m also planning to hear some Ride, Sonic Youth and New Order. But right now I’m enjoying Souvlaki. They are back together and I can’t wait to hear their new album I am praying it would be released some time this year! Haven’t heard a good shoegazey album in so long! Well except of course for My Bloody Valentine’s  m b v and few bands I discovered about two years ago. Bethany Curve, Alican Blue, and Tamaryn would be the highlights, beautiful songs that come to my mind now are Frozen Sleep,  Ann Illusion , and Violet’s in a Pool. Although Tamaryn 2015’s album was a huge disapointment cause I was so excited to hear a follow up for Tender New Signs that was extremely shoegazey and gorgeous, I dig it a lot and instead they released a mediocre pop-ish album that wasn’t bad but I  just really didn’t care for at all. I’m still on my plan of watching at least one movie everyday this year. My favorite movie this week is Roman Polanski’s The Tenant. I knew I’d enjoy it but damn! I REALLY DID. Still thinking about it days after I watched it. Same surreal and terrfying elements as Repulsion, it didn’t top it for me but it was absolutely amazing. Anyway! I am downloading the new Tarantino movie and will be watching it in a few hours, heard so many great things about it. But right now, I’m finishing my abstract/ pattern self-portrait illustration. I wanted to do it right away on illusrator but ended up grabbing my sketch papers and going about it. I like doodling though so it’s alright. Trying out these new pens I got. Loving it so far the ink is flowing perfectly and the tip is pretty good. Maybe I should inveset more in these brand. Have been sketching a lot lately. This year I tried Leuchtturm plain sketch notebooks instead of moleskine it’s actually much better! Though I still sticked with moleskine’s planner. This week has been great so far, I dropped a bad habit but I’m afraid I will replace it with another. I have been dying for a cigarette the past few days. God help me. I’ve been wanting to go back to working out because I haven’t been lately. Will start tomorrow cause I just cut two jeans to shorts and I need to wear these bad boys!! Studying is going well, still reading my history book and ordered two more books from Amazon a week ago should be expecting them in a mail in a couple of weeks. Can’t wait to read them. I will be starting my Logo Design class soon too so Logo Modernism came in handy the past two weeks. The movie just finished downloading. I’m off.
