I know that March is all about St. Patrick’s day and spring, so I should be decked out in florals and greens.
But lately I have been so obsessed with red.
Like everything I usually choose yellow, or green, I have been make it red. Nail polish, accessories, lipstick (I don’t wear green lipstick) but seriously, I want it red and I would also like that red to be shiny.
Maybe it’s because it hasn’t stopped raining in California and I am jonesing for a color I can’t get right now, as every single thing in my day is coated in gray.
Or maybe it’s because I’m doing what I want to do and I feel powerful?
Or maybe it’s because I got a new coat that is the color of the most delicious strawberry?
Maybe it’s all those things.
So Friday seems like the day to celebrate it.
And also a great time to celebrate my new markers and eraser.
It’s the little things that make the day fantastic!
Today’s drawing challenge was one of my own choices. I’ve always wanted to be a constellation. So, that’s what today’s drawing challenge is
Your canvas is the sky and just all the possibilities are just how you arrange them. It would be so delightful to see the galaxy from a different perspective.
At 6 am my sister told me that one of my all time favorite people who have ever made a melody on this planet passed away.
My reaction was, as always is in this situation… “no.”
It was just his birthday.
He just released an album on Friday.
But then I checked my phone and had like 6 different people telling that it was true… that David Bowie was gone.
Now, like many people I never met him in person. But I feel like I knew him on a different plane. He was such an inspiration to art (not just my own), to color, to vibrations. He was really something else. And I’m so glad the world got to experience the reaches of his imagination down to his last day.
Thanks David Bowie for all the magic, and all the inspiration,
I feel like since I have been working in retail design that now I have an official opinion about fashion.
And because I saw seasons of fashion just thrown into a junky room full of screens for like 9 hours a day for like… every weekday I can say things with an authority or something.
I will never wear a see through skirt to work. I am not Bridget Jones. And I do not work with Hugh Grant. See through skirts = creepy notes on linkedin… from guys who don’t look like Hugh Grant… or Colin Firth for that matter.
And I don’t want to wear overalls. I get really bad flashbacks of all the clothes on “Full House” that DJ Tanner used to wear because I can’t chance my loose drapey overalls falling off showing that I own an embarrassing amount of polka dot underpants:
I don’t want to look like I mugged Indiana Jones on my way to spend a night out on the town
And I definitely don’t want to look like a snake:
Because then Indiana Jones will never ask me out to the Spring Fling Dance.
Merry Christmas Internet!
I’m like up to my eyes in presents and glitter!
I hope everyone out there has a happy holiday and just feels so happy and lucky to be wherever they are right now!
