This is based on an old cat named Willow. She was a pretty great cat, and kept our house free of mice and moles. When my nephew was born, we discovered she didn’t like children. So she ended up on a farm with a nice couple that didn’t have kids, and lots of mice. In a way, I’m glad she left us, because I never had to see her grow old and die. Even though she probably passed years ago, she’s still on a farm somewhere in my mind.
Drawing has become more of a relaxation tool for me these days. I’m having fun with it, and its been a bit of a journey for me in trying out some new things, loosening my grip, and still seeing myself in the work. I find myself looking at some of my old art and thinking “but do I want to do that 500 times?” And that question helps me simplify the process quite a bit. it also helps me be more mindful and intentional in my mark-making.
Have a good weekend everyone!
