New comic: what is it like falling in love

I have’t been drawing much the past year, but sometimes I have something I want to express – and share it with the world.  Lately I have been feeling lonely and anxious, but there was a night where everything just felt perfect…

Sleep Comic

It’s good to be reminded sometimes that everything is ok.

In other news, today also happens to be the day that when I got my CCS acceptance letter 7 years ago :)  Must be something about May 7th…

Mystery Comic…

K so… im going through papers and drawings and sketchbooks as I organize my home office, and I find this comic.

I can tell that it’s mine, and it’s not a bad looking comic but.. I have no memory of drawing it, what it’s about, when I made it… ?!?!? No clue 🤷‍♀️

Mystery Comic - variant

 

It’s kind of weird.   What does mean?  What was I thinking and feeling when I drew this?  WHEN did I draw this?

I literally have no clue.   Strange, huh?

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 :
