Sheltering-in-Place: Day 100

Sheltering-in-Place: Day 100

Image of a woman standing in front of amorphous, shifting shapes in gradations of colors. She's waving, her hair is wrapped up, she's wearing a long skirt and a shirt that appears to depict organs as cute kitty cats. The text on the image reads  Well, the world is still on fire.

Well, the world is still on fire.

100 days ago, I made my first daily drawing in this series. It was my first attempt at using my swanky new digital drawing screen. It was the first time I tried to draw a human in many, many years. (We are not shaped like rhinos. It's weird.) And there was a small ball of flaming Earth near the bottom of the drawing.

Well, now I'm more willing to stand inside the flames instead of lamenting that they exist. It's kind of pretty in here with all the changing hues and sparking shapes. I don't know that this is progress, but I feel better. 

Also, I love this ridiculous shirt. It reminds me that even though I am soft and vulnerable, there are claws mixed in with my defensive cuteness. And don't mind the hair wrap. Part of increasing and changing my self-care from here on is that I'm redoing my hair. It's about 1/3 of the way through the process, so, I'm not ready to share it.

I have to rest more and work differently so that I don't burn out. So, this is it for now! 100 days of a drawing a day, with a hiccup here and there because I'm human. More and more people asked about making these available in a book or other format. I'm going to work on that. I'll let you know how it goes and when it's done as I pop in sporadically.

Thank you for coming along on my oubliette-avoidance journey. It made a difference.

Wear a mask. Black Lives Matter. End police brutality.
