As we’re (hopefully) approaching the top of the pandemic, spring is in full bloom and the temper is extra optimistic. Whereas my sourdough baking days are over, I’m nonetheless “baking” a brand new drawing every day. For the reason that begin of the pandemic, drawing has been an effective way to take care of stress. As a silver lining, I’ve rediscovered drawing once more. After a protracted day of infinite zoom conferences, it is refreshing to work on a small inventive challenge.
I get impressed by actually something: a rest room paper roll, speaking to family and friends, on-line procuring, scrolling Fb, or when studying the information. My authentic collection was “earlier than and after” centered on how our lives have modified through the pandemic, however since then, I’ve explored a number of extra ideas. One new theme I have been enthusiastic about is inanimate objects that may speak to one another, for instance, what if a face masks may complain to a rest room paper roll about its job? Or what would a chair say to a butt? I discovered that these objects are excellent metaphors for every day life (or perhaps I’m shedding it from being within the lockdown for too lengthy.) I additionally like drawing foolish charts and puns.
