Hello! My name is Shawnalee Anderton. I am a mother & an artist. My daily drawings are a commitment I made almost one year ago. Each of the pencil drawings has to be close to 2" square, and the titles begin with "I am..." Each drawing idea takes me anywhere between 1-3 hours to complete.

Up until now, I have been inspired to do small drawings either from daily personal experiences, thoughts, or news. For October, however, I decided to challenge myself further by incorporating a Halloween theme into each drawing.

I am excited about this one-year project. As a mother, it has been incredibly rewarding to complete something tangible every day. I think this is probably one thing that other moms can relate to. It has helped me get back in touch with who I am - another thing that can get lost along the way when you have a family. Now I feel like I have the best of both worlds: an amazing, loving family and a developing creative world of my own expression.

Believe it or not, Slavery is actually legal in the United States as punishment for being convicted of a crime. 13th amendment.
