I-F: Mask



Another quick one but quite a poignant one I must say. It's pretty much how I feel right at this very moment. I think we've probably all felt this way sometimes. I've mostly shied away from personal stuff on this blog because I've wanted to keep it mostly about illustration, but really, where does art come from but life. So. purge about to happen. (click away now or forever hold your peace.)

this has been a hard year. It has been an amazing year, but a hard year.
My illustration work has totally taken off; I got married; We're planning great things for the future.
my father-in-law had a stroke; I never see my husband cause we are both so busy; the year has slipped away.

it's a lot of ups and downs really... the ups are great. the downs are harder to deal with! Right now I am a bit down but I know it will pass. I guess I tend to focus on the positives since that's the kind of person I am. I suppose I find it easier than dwelling in the depths of sadness. Having a good cry is a good release though, so is painting, hence the illustration.

so... on the positive side... I have just finished some major projects (which I will post about very soon so stay tuned) and I am extremely excited about that. It also means I can get back to Illustration Friday a bit more regularly now. Yay! I have also been tagged by Jules! My first tag! So I'm going to do that before I go to bed to put myself in a good mood for sleep. (see next post)

hope you're all well out there in cyber-land. xx

Your Illo is sweet & poignant.

Everyone feels like that now and again. The first year of marriage is often rough, hang in there though. It's worth it :)

I can relate to your feelings, and I like your illustration. At the end of the year I always write a list of what I've accomplished - seems like your list would be good this year (no need to write down the bad stuff, that we want to forget).

U r right, Lil Kim. I bet everybody can say that have experienced a moment like the one u've illustrated.

Life is hard, but beautiful, as u said... specially when we realize that we r not alone.

There will always be ups and downs for all of us. I guess the downs help us appreciate the occasional ups we get that much more.

Great illustration, and I hope you get to enjoy more ups than you have to suffer downs.

Love the girl's expression. Looks like she's been eating some of those sour gummy worms that makes you cringe.

Wow...this is perfect, and how I've felt this year too. It's been one of the most difficult years of my entire life. Very nicely done.
