Kristina Webb is not your typical artist who loves to work with color pencils. What’s unique about her style is that she uses everyday items lying around the house and incorporates them to her color pencil drawings.

What’s outstanding about her work? The 20-year-old New Zealand-born illustrator became an Instagram sensation when she started posting her drawings to her account in 2012.

In the two years of sharing her work on the social media platform…

She has gained 1.5 million followers, and a lot of her pieces went viral.

She played around with water and this is what she gets.

Her drawing skills were first discovered when she was two years old.

Speaking to Wildpair Blog, she revealed that her mother was teaching her older sister how to draw.

You know how little kids like to imitate older people around them?

That’s how it started for her.

Her inquisitive self picked up the pencil, and that’s how it all began.

At 14, she did her first viral piece.

The young artist admitted that she posted her art on Tumblr without including her signature.

She then posted the same piece on Instagram, but everyone found it hard to believe that it was her who made it.

Until she posted more and more drawings that you can really find a distinct style to it and tell that they are hers.

But Webb’s art is more than just pretty and vibrant color pencil illustrations.

She also includes controversial issues in her drawings, just like this one.

When asked why she does that, she responds:

Well, it sounds kind of bad but I like getting people riled up! It’s good to get people talking about important issues; it helps to spread the message about gay rights, suicide or body image and stuff like that. When you have such a big following you may as well use it.

Now that she’s gained a lot of followers and has been an Internet sensation for quite some time, Webb admitted that it is her dream to be featured on The Ellen Show. With a brilliant mind and a set of creative hands, she definitely deserves to be on the show.

Men are from Mars. Women are from Venus. No matter how much both genders try to understand each other, they never seem to decipher each other's oddities.

Nonetheless, imperfect men and women find a way to connect perfectly. We guess real love is not about sticking despite the negatives, it is about accepting those negatives for the sake of the person we love.

Below is a cute and funny illustration of what boys think (and truly love) about their girls, who seem a little too naive at times.
