So huzzah! Art! Drawing! Oh man, it's been ages since i've drawn anything with everything going on, but I finally managed to get something done! It took three evenings, I don't actually get on my laptop most of the day when i'm in the hospital, since my parents are here and there's doctors and nurses and procedures always happening... So I don't get on until later in the evening after everyone has left and stuff has calmed down and such. So it took time. But i'm going home tomorrow so i'll have more time for art again! I plan on doing as much as I possibly possibly can in the time I have left :)

In any case...this is a pretty emotional piece in a weird way, mostly because I drew the whole thing knowing my life has been shortened to a matter of weeks. But I'm determined to live every single day to the fullest, to enjoy the little things, to spend time with family and friends and creating beautiful things :) I think I impressed a few of my doctors and nurses...not with the quality of the art (though they did make me blush with their lovely words), but because in the midst of everything happening and everything I could be drawing? I drew this. Which I think surprises them a little, lol.

I'm just too optimistic for my own good =P

Anyways, off to doodle some more, later peeps!

EDIT: I can't believe it...a Daily Deviation? I never EVER thought I would ever receive one, not in a million years! And I admit, never for this piece. But it holds so much meaning to me... For those of you unaware of the full story, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Liver Cancer on the 2nd of January and given 4 to 6 weeks to live. This is the first piece I drew after getting the news. I wanted to show everyone that I was okay, that I don't plan on giving up, and that I have ever intention of living every day to the fullest that I can. I want nothing more than to leave the world a little brighter and more cheerful :)

Getting this DD...I know a lot of people will say that it's not worth one. I know some people will think it's a waste. But for a dying girl who dreamed that she would ever receive one for anything she ever did? I'm sobbing in happiness right now. Thank you guys so much for helping this one little dream come true, I'm incredibly honored and overwhelmed in the best ways possible. Seriously thank you sooo much~!!

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-01-21
This little piece of art is a statement, one that tells: "I'm going to live to the fullest and enjoy life as much as I can for as long as I got" - coming from a fellow deviant who doesn't have much time left. May her positivity be an inpiration for all of us!

I came back through Alie's art tonight, reminding myself at how brilliant and talented she was, and I just wanted to leave this message and say that she's missed.

Just came across this again in my favorites today, read the comments & latest journal, and let the tears come to my eyes. Cancer is bullshit. I never knew you, Alie, but you have touched my life. Thank you.

Oh my!! This is so lovely! Such energy in that piece and so much positivity coming out of it. I just discovered it (a bit late) but it made my day!! So amazing in its simplicity... This hair... with such great volume :D This dress, reminds me of my childhood. I had almost the same, with slightly different color tones <3 Absolutely stunning piece of art Clap

Oh, and I just read your drawing statement.... My God, girl!!! Stay strong! You can beat all the evil that's happening in the world with such positivity and optimism! You can certainly beat this illness, which took some of my favourite people away from me (including my beloved mother). Be the the MIRACLE!!! I believe in you Hug Heart
