Here’s How Fans Reacted When Camila Cabello Vaguely Promised To Use Their Doodles During Her First Solo Tour

Within two days of announcing the concert dates for her “Never Be The Same” tour, Camila Cabello’s first solo tour has completely sold out. As a way to show her appreciation for her fans, Cabello has asked everyone to submit their doodles, which she describes in a Twitter post as “anything that makes you smile, any messages you want me to see every night when I sing these songs to you.”

In response, Camilizers across the internet have submitted the most detailed and artistic doodles. Here are just a few of them:

Many of these illustrations stem from the love fans have for Cabello.

The details in this illustration are amazing.

Now that Cabello has opened the door for creative content submissions, fans are taking advantage and are bringing back Cabello fan art they have created in the past.

Can all of this art be printed on apparel and be made available for purchase please?

A repeated element you see in these illustrations is the butterfly.

I am in love with this.

For this fan in particular, the butterfly stands for hope.

Love that this doodle represents how this fan relates to Cabello on a personal level. Tbh, a lot of us can relate to the immigrant life.

Some of these illustrations are drawn with colored pencils.

So few people can create art like this with the most basic tools.

And others are drawn with highly pigmented markers.

These are so beautiful.

In addition to drawings, Camilizers are also submitting songs they have written that are inspired by Cabello.

It is clear that many of these creative illustrations go far beyond just a doodle, which is defined as a rough drawing or scribble.

Perfection. ✨

But even the drawings that are in fact doodles, still come off as beautiful album art.

Can’t wait to see how Cabello will incorporate these art pieces into her first solo tour. ?

It looks like Maluma has hope the U.S. will get the COVID-19 vaccine situation under control by September. If all goes according to plan, his Papi Juancho World Tour will kick off on Sept. 2 in Sacramento, Calif.  

“I can’t believe I’m finally announcing my tour!” Maluma said in a statement. “I couldn’t be more excited to return to the concert stage – it is what I have been dreaming about for months – and we are going to celebrate like never before. I am planning a brand new show full of surprises for my fans and lots of new music off my last two albums, Papi Juancho and #7DJ.”

These Terrariums And Fairy Gardens Are A Lil’ Homies Dream Come True

These Terrariums And Fairy Gardens Are A Lil’ Homies Dream Come True

Lil’ Homies are one toy that we all remember. They little figurines were so much more to us than little toys that we got from toy vending machines. Adrian Ortiz is using them to create something magical and giving people a non-Eurocentric take on terrariums.

Adrian Ortiz is giving Lil’ Homies their own terrariums in which to flourish.

Ortiz understands the cultural importance of Lil’ Homies because it was one of the first times he saw himself represented, like so many of us. The toys were a welcomed moment of representation for Ortiz after spending so many years seeing so many white narratives in the media and toys.

“I started making terrariums with Lil’ Homies in them as the figures because I noticed how traditional fairy gardens were always representing white/European figures,” Ortiz told mitú. “I thought about how perfect they were in size. I wanted to dedicate my art page to the idea of people of color existing and participating in nature.”

Ortiz feels supported from his followers as well as his boyfriend. His art has been a welcomed breath of culturally relevant plant art in people’s social media feeds.

The ongoing pandemic gave Ortiz a chance to dive deeper into a hobby he already had: plants.

“I have always been into plants and nature since I was a kid and I began making terrariums and fairy gardens in the past year to deal with the pandemic like so many others,” Ortiz says. “There is something super special about making miniature tiny living worlds. I wanted to make fairy gardens but I ended up with something halfway between terrariums and fairy gardens but with cholos. So I created the ‘Brown People Indoor Miniature Gardening TikTok’ series on my tik tok account.”

Ortiz’s TikTok account, aptly named @botanical_homie, has more than 7,000 followers showing that people are really into the idea of Lil’ Homies living their fairy garden dreams.

The terrariums are another chance for people of color to be represented in the world.

Ortiz was in an arts school for middle and high school. In that time, the school fostered an understanding of racial injustices and introduced Ortiz to the concept of artivism, art as activism. It was, according to Ortiz, a moment when he realized that he wanted to dedicate his art to BIPOC.

“I grew up and live in Colorado and have seen the lack of access BIPOC have to outdoor activities like hiking and mountain climbing,” Ortiz explains. “These are white-dominated sports and activities that some POC never get to experience. I want to create a world where we can be anything and do everything, even if it’s miniature. A utopia for us to take back what is also ours.”

Ortiz is making the terrariums for everyone, even people who struggle to take care of plants.

Covid quarantining has forced so many people to think they make perfect plant parents. Yet, taking care of plants is something that doesn’t com naturally. Ortiz had to spend time trying to figure out what plants are the best for everyone.

“Part of my challenge in creating these terrariums has been figuring out what kind of plants people can keep alive. They all have different requirements so getting plants should always depend on your space and lighting,” Ortiz says. “I come from the generation of YouTube so I always say do research, it’s part of the fun. The biggest thing about having plants that people don’t realize is that you just have to pay attention to them, often. But again it depends, some plants are indestructible.”

Ortiz is happy to be able to create this art and hopes to make them more accessible.

“If you want to support me and my art work you can contact me via Instagram about commissions,” Ortiz says. “Shipping these pieces is not easy or ideal so I appreciate everyone’s patience as I learn and evolve. My goal is to work on larger installations and I’ll be putting out DIY kits in the near future.”
