Rise from Ashes

We will rise from the ashes!
Well.. this phoenix seems to rise from hot chocolate too ❤️

I'm hosting a 20% off sale on everything in my store with code BLUECHRISTMAS until the end of today (plus free shipping)

I'm late as usual. Things have been a little, um, turbulent recently. I've been dealing with bronchitis and it's after effects for the last 3 weeks, as well as other stuff. Which has not been super fun.

Hope you enjoy this sketch I polished up a little. I wanted to create something warm and wintery without using Christmas tropes. The symbol of the phoenix means a lot to me, as I feel I have risen from the ashes and was given another chance in life, as well as on a more literal level - there has been some phoenix related activities in my life recently 😉

Hope your Christmas season is going well! Have you put your tree up yet?

Peace, Love and Living Again,
Blue x

Considering all of the art you've made showcasing your emotional struggles, a Phoenix seems like the perfect symbol for you, Destiny. Keep rising up and inspiring others to rise with you.

I've been away from DA for quite a while, but seeing art from you still makes me really happy, even if its (almost?) spring time now.
It's not only beautiful, but meaningful too (and I'd be p confident in saying that goes for the artist too) ^^

It's amazing, seeing the phoenix fills me with hope for the future; I live in Italy and we are fighting against coronavirus, but there are really bad days and I can only pray that soon, very soon, the situation in my beautiful country will improve. Art, your art in particular, made this day better, thank you! :heart:

Well, that's what happens when you mix up Phoenix Ashes with Coffee Granules :P

Dumb jokes aside, I'm dissappointed in myself that I didn't get round to faving/commenting on this sooner. It's a really uplifting and encouraging message behind this piece, one that many of us really need, considering that when this was uploaded 2019 was coming to an end. I can only hope that said message reaches a lot of people, yourself included (Instagram hasn't exactly made me motivated to use it, but I have seen your latest news :( ).

Really hope you're doing okay and that this new treatment you're undergoing works for you. :hug:

Love and best wishes, from the scruffy dude who bowed when I met you at MCM London last October :heart:

Dissapointed in myself that I didn't notice you'd posted this sooner.

Happy to see you back and posting :D 

Another beautiful work as always.

I believe its actually from that hot tee, you know. Sometimes it gets so hot, you cant hold a god damn cup.

Anyways, I'm impressed as usual. I really like your work, just keep it up!
