I’ve mentioned before that my spacing out is often due to imagining things I am too embarrassed to share before. One of these things (that I did confess to my roommate!) is imagining articulated buses as accordions. Sometimes when I’m on a bus, I like to try imagining what kind of music it would be making. Which is silly yes, but I also began to imagine what kind of people would be able to play a bus accordion, they’re so big! So while watching a movie I made a drawing of a very long armed, bus accordionist.

I’m quite fond of this little doodle, mostly because of the friend I was thinking of while drawing. It looks nothing like my friend, but I feel like this character is somehow familiar. It is also a slightly more realistic drawing than what I usually make, but still quite cartoonish & I feel it still fits in with my normal style. I don’t really want to be stuck doing the same thing always, I love ugly birds, but we don’t need a million identical ones!

It’s been quite some time since I updated about, “Love & Letting Go“. As I mentioned before, while this project is similar to “Plant Collectors in Bolivia” except instead of piecing together bits of words from years & years, it would be an edit as you go, one year project. The name was chosen in May & is proving to be an accurate theme for the kind of year I’ve been having. When I chose the title, I didn’t know I was going to move yet, I think I was still seriously considering online school because of the cost factor. But here I am & I find myself needing to let go of a whole mess of things in order to get on here.
Love & letting go are so linked, they are part of each other. I, like many people in the world, am prone to falling in love. Not necessarily in the romantic relationship kind of way, that has only happened once, but rather in every other way. I fall in love with the world, with someone’s laugh, with the way the light is coming in at that window over there, with the wind, with the way certain books smell. Nothing is forever & these tiny things that are so easy to fall in love with are gone quickly. My heart is broken a thousand times a day, but it isn’t something to be sad about. We all love, we all let go, we do it constantly, every day & I think that is the most endearing & wonderful thing we can do.

Doodling & playing with paint is fun which is why I recommend keeping a journal in which to do these things. A place to play, to not worry about things looking nice or interesting or even remotely creative, but to just have fun! I no longer have access to a scanner 😦 so I am having to take pictures of these pages which doesn’t look quite as nice, but whatever.
