Not A Starving Artist

Hi I'm Melly Lee. This is my personal blog to hold myself accountable in becoming a stronger visual artist + to prove to my friends back home that I haven't died yet.


Wowza! I feel so honored to have one of my images turned into a illustration! 



I drew Abraham Lim of The Glee Project : Season 2. Did it straight with pen, so, yes, it’s not totally perfect and there are imperfections. Don’t be too hard on me, I’m still practising =)

He’s been a great inspiration and I love how he stands up for himself, what he believes in and most of all, for his fans. He taught me a lot about loving myself and overcoming difficulties in life. He is a fighter. Oh, I could go on and on. And, this guy looks good in ALL his pictures it’s crazy! Robert Ulrich is right, he does photographs well, very photogenic. 

All in all, he is a beautiful person who never fails to put a smile on my face, make me feel good about myself and continues to inspire me as well as others

Abraham if you do come across this, do not change who you are, not for anyone else. You are perfect just the way you are. =) Team Abraham all the way!

On a side note, I noticed that my drawing “skill” is, not quite as good as it used to be so I’ll probably be doing a 30 Day Drawing Challenge soon to “practice more”. So, stick around.

Oh yeah, it was this picture that I drew.

This is amazing. Thank you so much. You’ll never know how thankful I am for fans like you.
