I got into one of two vaults. Each one had its own name. Nightmares and Dreams. I got into the Dreams vault and then somehow, I was walking in this busy street with shops on both sides. I found my parents and my sister in the crowd, except, my sister was the little girl from the Hunger Games, the blonde one that Katniss volunteered for, but I didn’t question it whatsoever. I walked up to them and they looked at me like they didn’t know me. I thought they were joking, but they literally just walked away. I tried to stop my little sister and cried, begging her to remember, telling her that I’m her older sister, but she looked at me like I was talking about rocket science, or something. I woke up and I was back in the vault I entered. I walked outside to see my best friend freaked out and worried about me. She told me that there was a mistake, and the vaults where actually swapped. So I got into the nightmare vault. Next thing I know, I woke up for real, this time.

Since I did this old piece of scenery painting already a few years ago, I always looked back at it with great fondness. This was the first "serious" piece of artwork I created using Procreate and iPad Pro that convinced me to do my creative painting away from my computer and Photoshop. Some parts of that image were even done at a cafe too!
Recently, I decided to try to replicate that free and a bit fantastic-looking style of painting in a project that we are conceiving together with Kana. I based this picture on some photos that I took myself, trying to mix them enough to create an entirely new place.
To see how I painted it, you can watch my recent live streams on YouTube, where I documented almost the whole process live!

Filed under: Things I've Gotten That I've Yet to Post
The Luna Defense Keychain ($19) and Love Potion Keychain ($20) from Alyssa D. Silos Art (@Alythuh on Twitter, same @ on Instagram).
I'm certain that some of y'all have heard of the self-defense tip that when you're in an area that you don't feel safe, you could hold your keys between your fingers as tools to protect yourself with. First, I've heard a warning against this because the keys could harm you when you move your hand since they'll be unstable (allegedly, you should hold them in a tight fist like you're ready to stab with them), and secondly, these keychains are just for that. Slide your knuckles into the two open slots, and you're armed.
My fingers are tiny, so with some finesse I can slide Love Potion down to their bases, but can't get Luna past my knuckles. So, I don't think these would be good buys for people with much bigger hands. However, although my hold on Love Potion is sturdier, Luna has the sharper point (which I assume is because it's newer designed). Luna also has its self-defense function camouflaged much better to me than Love Potion, but it's not like I'd be advertising these anyways, so I doubt anyone would know what they really are until I use them. Thankfully, the points do feel sharp enough that they'd hurt when swung or slammed with pressure, but they don't slice my hands or prick me when I'm casually admiring the keychains as art.
Of course, please don't let items like this substitute proper self-defense instruction. Nothing is ever a guarantee. But, I do believe having some form of protection is better than none at all.
I'm very much looking forward to the tasers this artist wants to put out as well. And the matching safety alarms. I'm really grateful that the artist is prioritizing designing everything with a nonthreatening look.
(Also, the packaging everything came in was so so cute. Each collection (Luna was part of "fairy tale," Love Potion another) comes with safety tips! I wish I didn't have to throw them out, but I didn't have use for them lol.)
Stay safe, y'all!
