Happy Independence Day

Hi friends 👋 wishing everyone a safe Independence Day! Did a quick animation of Betsy waving the USA flag while fireworks are in the background 🎆 🇺🇸 GIF was made using FlipaClip! Had a lot of fun using their app on my iPad 😊 be sure to check out their Instagram page!

Out of a whim, I went out to visit the New York Hall of Science to check out the Above & Beyond and Connected Worlds exhibits. A fun experience with the family and plenty of opportunities to learn some cool stuff on science and nature.

A great way to spend the day! What are your plans for the holiday?

Namaste,

Mother’s Day

It’s been a while since I did a comic. Been experimenting with different styles and ended up making it colourful with a bit of a pastel / retro aesthetic.

I decided to create the comics on Procreate since it was easier for me to do the shading along with adding the text. It’s quite a different direction, compared to using Comic Life by plasq.

I created Betsy and baby Betsy for this comic, inspired by my Pillow Pet plush animals. They’re always together, no matter where they go 🐮

Mother’s Day has been quiet, but filled with plenty of sentimental moments since I decided to stay home and celebrate with my family. It was also a dual celebration since my son’s birthday is this week. Can’t believe he will be turning 4 and starting Pre-K this year! How time flies 😨

While I’m grateful & fortunate that I’m able to spend time with my family, my son and being able to speak with my mom – I know that Mother’s Day can be a difficult time for others.

For those who are struggling and doing their best to cope – I want you to know that I’m thinking of you. If you ever need to talk or want to share your experiences about Mother’s Day, I am opening this space for you.

Namaste,

Diana

Happy Diwali

Happy Diwali everyone! May Lakshmi bless you with abundance, joy and happiness.

I’ve had some fond memories years ago when attending the Diwali functions. They were vibrant, happy and fun. These days, I usually cook at home with some simple meals and sweets.

Here is my artwork for the occasion. My cow is holding a diya in its hands. Artwork was done on Autodesk Sketchbook. Added a gold confetti animation using Lumyer app.

Namaste,

-D.
