drawing

Off to the post

Sharing has been tough. I’m not sure why. My anxiety is creeping up again as I write. But here goes.

My version of a post card. I was pleasantly surprised.

I sent a post card off to a friend today. She offered to send a drawing to anyone who wanted one. I signed myself up to receive and to give. I figured it would be good to swap art since I haven’t been drawing lately.

I designed her post card last week and sat down to draw it last night (which I’ll share once she receives it). Coincidentally, I received her card today: a drawing of a bottle of Cholula hot sauce. Brilliant.

And the best part? The “bonus content” she sent me. There’s something beautiful about insignificant sketches and color swatches; they’re my favorite part of drawing. Never mind the finished result. Show me the doodles of how you got there. My friend knows me well.

Thank you, L.E., for taking the time to draw and send these to me. It pushes me to keep going and to have fun with it—thank you.

The land of 100 mailers

It’s been a rough start to the week. I’ve been in heavy thinking mode these last couple of days and feeling what feels like grief? Music, family, and friends have been my consolation so far.

I took a long walk, talking to a friend as I did, and came home to the box of mailers that I ordered last week. I’ve been wanting to mail some of my sketchbook pages out to friends but didn’t have the right size of envelope nor the right kind.

So today they arrived, all 100 of them. My studio (the desk area in my bedroom) is now the Land of 100 Mailers. Let’s see where they’ll go.
