Much Love Monday; Heartbreak Songs

 

 

 

Man, today isn’t such a Much Love Monday for me.  If anything it’s a big Heart Break Monday.

I think today I am going to post my Sad Girl Playlist of what I’ve been listening.  I hope it brings some joy to you as well :)

 

 

Happy Heartbreak Monday!

Your Name, My Heart

Thought I would break up posts about my art and talk about some other beautiful art on my mind today…

 

Last night I went to see the Japanese Anime Film, “YOUR NAME”, and i feel like my heart is still beating fast from it. On top of being just a completely beautiful masterpiece of art and animation, the story line will make your heart race, your stomach jump – it was just so good.

And by the end I couldn’t help but think of a work of art I had the pleasure of seeing back in 2010.

It was a piece called “LURE” by the artist Beili Liu.  I remember seeing it in real life, as I walked by the empty room that took up half a city block, peering in the windows from the sidewalk at night.  It literally took my breath away.

In Beili Liu’s statement for the piece, she talked about how each red string has two disks representing that everyone has a soulmate in this world, even if you don’t know it.  You are not alone.

This is a theme in the story of YOUR NAME as well, and i found many similarities between them.  I hope it inspire you to go out and see it :

 

 

 

The WONDER WOMAN Pose

I know I haven’t been submitting much lately, but I just finished a project I’m really excited about.  I think that it’s something that every woman (and human I guess ;) should know about to support building confidence and self-esteem.

Everyone deserves a chance to wield their golden lasso!

CRUSHING IT

I’m keepin’ it rolling – I want to try to post something at least once a week – trying to get my life back!

Here is a comic I drew back in April about our former long-term sub teacher at work, who I followed around gawking at for months.

Spring in Love

HELLO OLD FRIEND

Holy MOLY it’s been a long time since I’ve posted on here. ITS BEEN NEARLY 5 MONTHS PEOPLE.

Why?  Various life events + no time + nothing to draw + too many commissions + my student spilling coffee on my computer and it being in the shop waiting for parts for 4 months.

BUT LOOK!  IM HERE!  IM BACK!  YAY!

I am hoping to get things going again regularly.  And guess what folks – I just turned 30!  Shit is gonna get real.

Im ready.

SO without further ado, let’s welcome each-other back with a new debut comic, the first comic of my 30’s :  I CAN DO ANYTHING.

(based on actual events…)
