I've done 4 drawings today, probably more than I've ever done. Unfortunately, all of them came with some family comments: Am I REALLY that fat? Is the bottom of my chin that big? I look like I'm 3 million years old! That looks terrible, I can't believe it was supposed to be me, I don't like it at all. Looking at your drawing makes me feel really bad about myself.
Only my little cousin Mimi said she loved it and tried to tell everyone else that the drawings were fine. Thanks Mimi!
Tomorrow means more family more drawings more comments, hopefully people will be a little less self-conscious.
well it's raining again and i have a million errands to run before tomorrow's craft fair. walking's out, and i'd rather save the $2 bus fare for buying more grossgrain ribbon, which i'm burning through at $.5/yd. solution? a little oilcloth, a coat hanger and some string. (just make sure the hanger is secured at 2 points to the frame so that it doesn't fall down onto your tire). About to take it for a ride...
i've been sewing up a storm these last few days, and I need a new blade for my serger. a little research into the matter shows that the nearest sewing machine supply store to my house also specializes in tarot card readings. go figure!
