Drawings for June
Thank you for reading!
Hi everyone, I’m almost 40 and still trying to find the “perfect routine” I can reliably stick with. Instead though I should be working on accepting that I will never ever keep a routine – I try things for a few months and then it’s on to something else. This propensity is in conflict with my desire to be organized have everything buttoned up. I can’t STAND when folders are disorganized, to-do lists and notes are in different places, and I have a million half-filled sketchbooks going in non-chronological order, and I have a million safari tabs open to deal with “later”. But also I can’t keep up with the organizing so I let it go. Anyway. Here’s a drawing about something I think a lot about:
(Specifically, I think as individuals (mothers) we do too much, and as a society too little (for each other))
1. These past few months I was taking an anatomy and physiology class that consumed my life (or what was left of it after my young children consumed their share). Here are some of my flash cards. I love that this class has kept my drawing practice alive. We covered the nervous system, the cardiac and circulatory systems, and lymphatics and immunity. Exciting!
2. It’s been a few months since my book was published, and I deeply appreciate everyone’s support! It means so much that you preordered and or made the trek with babies in tow to a real life store to find it.
3. Finally, I wanted to share a few (of many) window drawings from 2021. “Window” comes from Old Norse “vind” (wind) “auga” (eye). An eye to see the wind. To see but be sheltered from. Things have changed so much so rapidly lately, pandemic-wise, that it’s hard to remember having to stay home all day every day. These drawings are from that time.
That’s it for now. As always, thank you for reading and I’d love to hear from you!
