As we are (hopefully) approaching the end of the pandemic, spring is in full bloom and the mood is more optimistic. While my sourdough baking days are over, I am still "baking" a new drawing each day. Since the start of the pandemic, drawing has been a great way to deal with stress. As a silver lining, I've rediscovered drawing again. After a long day of endless zoom meetings, it's refreshing to work on a small creative project.
I get inspired by literally anything: a toilet paper roll, talking to friends and family, online shopping, scrolling Facebook, or when reading the news. My original series was "before and after" focused on how our lives have changed during the pandemic, but since then, I've explored a few additional concepts. One new theme I've been excited about is inanimate objects that can talk to each other, for example, what if a face mask could complain to a toilet paper roll about its job? Or what would a chair say to a butt? I found that these objects are perfect metaphors for daily life (or maybe I am losing it from being in the lockdown for too long.) I also like drawing silly charts and puns.
