Happy Birthday to the most incredible, hardworking, dedicated, thoughtful, kind, breathtaking, and bold woman I know. Traci Hines is a beautiful human being inside and out and I'm so honored to get to know her! I discovered her on YouTube 6 years ago from her Thinking Of You by Katy Perry cover. I immediately was drawn to her magical voice, and after hours of marathoning her videos I knew I was hooked! It's so amazing to look back from then to now and see how much she's changed, and see the proof of all her hard work paying off. Traci has been my muse for the longest time, and I find pieces of inspiration from everything she does. In honor of her birthday I decided to make this drawing of her, encompassing some of her favorite things. Of course, the drawing is her as Princess Serenity (Sailor Moon) from her music video for Carry On. However, I wanted to do something different by adding a few touches of Ariel. (Starfish instead of a moon on her forehead & her gorgeous red locks!) And the last detail is kind of subtle, but can anyone spot the second star to the right? ;) Anyways, thank you Traci, for all that you do! You give me strength and inspire me in so many ways and I'm forever grateful for your kindness and friendship. I love you to the moon and back. 😁🌌🌙❤👑🎉
