When she stood she stood tall.

I finally got some sleep last night after a long time without. My back is really hurting me yet again, I never even realized how much I avoid having to bend because of the pain now. For months I’ve also had this weird thing where if I bend my neck it hurts the very bottom of my spine too. At first it would come and go but now it’s constant. As you can imagine it makes drawing really hard sometimes. I have to watch how I position my head even more than before. Boo.

I’ve been listening to the song below consistently for months now and still haven’t gotten tired of it! I usually put it on when I’m in a solemn or sad mood. It’s beautiful.

I realized that I never post any of the pictures in it on here so since I haven’t been doing any new drawings (working on the children’s book instead) I think maybe I’ll start posting a few.

I take this book pretty much everywhere with me, just in case I get bored or need a distraction. I’m pretty used to people asking to look in it (I still have an invisible panic attack every time). Obviously I know there’s a chance that if someone sees me drawing in it they’ll get curious so if I was too worried about it  I would make sure not to take it out in front of people. I don’t put anything too personal in it, like the drawings I do when I’m moody or upset or in an insane amount of pain. Not that they’re horrifying or anything, but it’s a lot like letting some one read your diary, even if other people don’t realize it. I have a separate sketchbook that stays at home and I keep it to myself. That way I can vent my feelings without fear of having someone judge them.

I think this drawing is from a few months back. As you’ve probably noticed I particularly like drawing people (eyes are my favorite, hair is clearly not). That’s not always what I draw, those are just the drawings I prefer to share.

  1. You do have such an amazing talent dear Katie, one of these days I need to commission you to draw a tattoo for me. Atlas. For my chest. Another conversation I suppose.
    Cheers and night night fatigue has me so I’m giving in.

    • That sounds like an awesome tattoo! I’ve been scouring my mind for my own new tattoo ideas too but I haven’t been able to decide what or where.
      Sweet dreams!
      P.S. you have the same amazing talent! Your art is wonderful.

    • I’ve always wanted to keep a regular journal to write in everyday but whenever I start one I stick to it for a few days or weeks and then abandon it. Aside from blogging, drawing seems to be my preferred method of letting my thoughts and feelings out. :)
