dizzylittledotty Spending hours in the flowers in Kobe. Japan takes such pride into planting, growing and tending to the greenery. How lovely x 6h

dizzylittledotty A lot of curious creatures have been asking me about the tools behind my artwork & creative process.
Any concept designs are sketched down in my little black book (see a few posts back). My rough drafts are drawn on paper and scanned onto my Mac. Sometimes I draw the whole design straight into Photoshop, depending how I feel - But I think it’s important (for me) to keep the process semi traditional, and putting pen to paper changes my mood completely when it comes to creating. I use my Large @Wacom Intuos Pro to draw over the scanned draft with & colour in Photoshop. And that’s how my drawings come to life. :)

dizzylittledotty I love that the little houses over here are covered in greenery. There are bicycles everywhere and crazy vending machines everywhere. After walking in 40 degree heat through Kyoto, I completely understand why there is one on every corner <3 3w
  •   discoverbrisbane Awh cute 3w
  •   ben_hoad Such a weird sight to see a vending machine juxtaposed against such greenery :D 3w
  •   dizzylittledotty @abi_stro girl you gotta go! Seriously everything is lovely here. They prize themselves in putting beauty in minor details. I saw a gentleman clipping flower petals with mini scissors the other day in a garden near the road. He a council worker removing the rotten leaves. How crazy! 2w
  •   dizzylittledotty @discoverbrisbane I wish the picture was landscape - to the right of this was a dad and tiny baby girl getting a drink from the vending machine. They were so cute! omg! 2w
  •   dizzylittledotty @ben_hoad It's a bit like that ay. Like you'll be walking through the streets with all these old business buildings, and suddenly come across a shrine or temple. Crazy. 2w
  •   dizzylittledotty @ben_hoad ALSO SO MANY THINGS MAKE SENSE THIS TRIP. It was 40 degrees with 100% humidity the day I took this photo, and I was like 'it's so damn hot' and as I pulled a drink from my bag realised it was boiling. So went to the cold vending machine and threw my money at it. Totally understood why they have them on every corner, and why Fans are a Japanese icon too. They all knock about fanning themselves. 2w
  •   ben_hoad @dizzylittledotty maybe they're constantly fanning themselves due to the ever-present beauty of their surroundings. It's the only way to survive the constant retina stimulation. 2w
  •   ben_hoad @dizzylittledotty I wonder what "I do believe I have the vapours" is in Japanese. 2w

dizzylittledotty Kyoto you are a super humid, lush place and I loved exploring you. Everything in the countryside is so green in the Summer 3w
  •   dizzylittledotty @eirrynflouch oh my word thank you miss! I'm blushing like a tomato <3 3w
  •   dizzylittledotty @makotokoji omg woman, this place is just magic. Seriously. I'm going to be so sad when I come home haha 3w
  •   dizzylittledotty @ben_hoad can you plz make a trip some time. You would love it! 3w
  •   ben_hoad @dizzylittledotty I shall and I will; but that might be the last anyone sees of me <_< 3w
  •   makotokoji I hear you - every time 3w
  •   alan_alan_alan If you get the chance visit Kyoto Ninja.
    It's in between two super cool, winding shopping arcades full of secrets called teramatchi and shinkyogoku :) 3w
  •   dizzylittledotty @alan_alan_alan darling I'm so sad I missed your advice ! I would have loved to check out the arcades. I actually launched into this holiday without asking advice or planning too much, and I forgot the time before this I went and did all the things based on helpful tips from cool guys like yourself. GUH. That arcade sounds amazing. #heartbroken 2w
  •   lushynska So peaceful place 5d

  •   dizzylittledotty @sammy.lavoie1 @pickledpixels @cloe_vick you guys, seriously, they have a whole Ghibli section at Kyoto and I dropped so m much money there on really really cute things, I literally can't even. I saw the post cards and pacer and added them to the mound. I'm wishing I spent more tbh. It was heaven. 3w
  •   dizzylittledotty @maddiejaydee oi I can't wait for you to come over here and love everything. Seriously, they have manga museums and stuff! I'm kind of thinking about seeing Attack on titan this week! Do you think they'll have subtitles for foreigners like me? #probsnot. Aaaackk I should have packed you with me <3 3w
  •   dizzylittledotty @meohmygirl cheers mate. Took me 10 attempts to put 5 images into a frame and make them look pretty. Flat lay life is hard. 3w
  •   dizzylittledotty @jonicafrancis oi you plus your mate dave should come over for a holiday! omg #DOIT 3w
  •   maddiejaydee Ohhhh of they do have subtitles you should totally see it! 3w
  •   jonicafrancis We want to soooo badly! 3w

dizzylittledotty What a whirlwind of a time. Last week, I was kicking it at Splendour In the Grass creating live drawings to accompany artists’ sets in the Mix up tent with @kennylowdown // @strictlyandlow. Like a true doofus I didn’t get enough photos. Fact: I drew all the images with two fingers on an iPad and an app similar to snapchat. 4w

dizzylittledotty Cute little envelopes I decorated recently to put all the pretty orders in.
Because bills should be boring, presents to yourself should be fun.
Thanks so much to everyone who picked up a little somethin’ somethin’ recently too. It honestly blows my mind every time, that people want my creations on their walls.

Merci <3

dizzylittledotty Fun fact : I cart around this little book every where I go. Ideas will appear then vanish from my memory because I’m so forgetful. So this little diary keeps all my concepts, thumb sketches, secrets and little words. Pretty much everything you see online this year was birthed from these pages. 1mon
