i was in the tattoo shop the other night & one of the tattoo artists had this sticker on his laptop of this sketch that caught my eye & i found it so intriguing. i had him write down the name of the artist. i went to her website & she is incredible. here is a little bit about the artist. go to her site & check it out as well. . .
Nanami Cowdroy was born in Sydney, Australia with close bonds to her mixed Japanese-European heritage. Growing up with such contrasting cultures and surroundings, has greatly influenced her style of art and creative expression.
By intertwining complex characters and highly detailed objects her pieces reflect a juxtaposition between foreign and familiar entities and environments. Her imagination is illustrated through works which are elaborate and exotic. She is drawn to subjects, which may on the surface seem delicate or fragile, but are given strength and depth through her pen and ink techniques, intricate hand generated style and mixed media compositions.
Her signature detailed style reflects a refined monochrome pallette with her name 'Nanami' (meaning 'Seven Seas' in Japanese ) stamped in red. Fluid line-work, watery creatures and Goldfish are some of her favourite subjects, and distinctive forms which are featured in her artworks.
what an extremely amazing day in the history of our country & even in our world.

Well Well Well. . .
shall i introduce myself to you world?
- - - > i shall.
my name is, as many know me. . . Leah LaBelle.
i am 22 years young & i am experiencing life.
i have lately been searching for something deeper to feed my soul & my mind.
i am an artist. a musician. a writer. a soul who is simply living in the presence of the body God blessed me with.
i found that recently i haven`t been inspired the way i know i should be.
i have a brilliant friend who first showed me the world of blogging in her incredible conquest for more, so i then decided to look a little deeper into it.
we all know Kanye West & his superb blogs, but i have also grown to LOVE the miss Solange Knowles & hers as well.
she reminds me much of myself as a young artist molding herself into a strong woman.
WITH THAT SAID . . . . . i started this to become more inspired. to start looking at the world & all that`s in it in a different light. to then share & enjoy it. giving myself a source to let go - to escape - a canvas for my experiences :-) i need my passion back.
in this journey i will include you in much of what i see & things that excite me, that i may hate, make me laugh, cry, music, fashion, so much. . .
here & there i will also post some of the video`s i do on youtube to update you & please feel free to to check them all out at. . . www.youtube.com/misslabelle1
tell a friend to tell a friend ;-)
WELCOME ON THIS JOURNEY DOWN DISCOVERY. come on.
. if you wish to experience the blogs i mentioned feel free!
