Before you focus on how well someone else is treating you, ask, “How well am I treating myself?” Your answer has a direct impact on the person you attract. When I mention self-care, people think I’m talking about manicures or man caves. But that’s not taking care of the essence of who you are. Do you have a fitness practice? Are you eating well? Are you meditating? Are you meticulous about the people you allow in your life? If you are not caring for yourself in that sacred way, you are not going to find anybody else to do that for you. You also have to let to go of past hurt. Unpack the baggage you’re carrying from last relationships, of slights experienced or [perceived]. The next thing is working on your ability to receive support. As supermen and superwomen, we don’t know how to ask for, or accept, what we need most, which are expressions of love. Embrace a compliment. Say yes to assistance. Let the person who wants to support you do it. Last, learn how to communicate in a manner that your partner can receive.

Batgirl (2014), original artwork.
Ever since I’ve had some serious life changes in the past few months, its been a struggle to sit down and find some time to draw a fully complete illustration.  And its been sapping my energy in my art downtime to see people stealing my artwork for various purposes, some of which was to make profit off of.  But I put that all aside to finally get this finished.  Its been sitting as a sketch for the absolute longest, and it feels good to finally get one done.  
If you would like to purchase this as an awesome 11” x 17” print, you can do so at illumistrations.storenvy.com!

Untitled, original artwork.
I drew a quick sketch and thought that I could throw some quick colors on it while I was at it…and that didn’t go as planned.  So, I just used this as a practice exercise for future stuff.  Plus its sort of fall inspired, and you can’t really go wrong with fall fashion.

To put it simply - you have disoriented me.
Falling in love with you was like being thrown into an ocean at night.
It kisses my skin and it engulfs me, and I’m so light it feels like I’m flying, but I’m left with nothing that I need.
I don’t know which way will give me the air I need and which way will send me down further into the abyss.
Everything is chaotic
Everything is soothing.

The sky is not the limit for African astronaut Mandla Maseko

by Melissa Jane Cook
It is an extraordinary dream come true. Like music to Mandla Maseko’s ears, this part-time DJ will blast off into space, literally. No-one in Maseko’s family has ever stepped outside South Africa, but now the 25-year-old is preparing to rocket into space in 2015.
Maseko won the global Axe Apollo Space Academy competition for an hour long sub-orbital trip of 62 miles, or about 100 kilometres. Handpicked for the trip on the Lynx Mark II Spaceship, Maseko is one of only 23 civilians from around the world to win a seat on the space mission. He saw off a million other entrants to emerge victorious.

Before we are led to believe that every professional football player is a monster, let’s take the time to remember that many of them are attempting to use their wealth and fame to become someone’s angel.

Warrick Dunn Gives Away 139th Home To Single Mom
by Quierra Luck
The NFL has been having the summer from hell but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other players, past and present, who aren’t being positive, take for example Warrick Dunn. I did a story not too long ago about veteran NFL player Warrick Dunn and his foundation, Warrick Dunn Charities, who help single mothers in their efforts to raising their families by providing them with homes. Today Warrick was able to provide house number 139, to a mother today.
