In April 2015, Little Rock Illustrator Sally Nixon started an art project called "365" in which she had to create one illustration per day for a whole year. As it was not that easy to think of new drawing ideas so frequently, Sally started to search for inspiration in her own life and simple routine moments that she's going through. The artist wanted to show the natural side of real women besides staged Instagram selfies, Snapchat filters, and all the other forms of social media that rule our world.

The women of Nixon's beautiful drawings are captured doing their casual everyday life things like taking a shower, eating in bed, brushing their teeth, walking around the house without pants, and having lazy TV time with their friends. In other words - women when nobody's watching.

"They don’t have perfect bodies or perfect habits and that makes them relatable,” she explains to TL Andrews. “The scenes I create around them are everyday places: a bathroom, a restaurant, a messy bedroom. However, my goal with each drawing is to elevate the seemingly mundane girl problems to something special.”

I've heard of people doing this, but I have never done it. I brush before bed and in the morning... fully clothed.

She should be squeezing pimples on her shoulder. That would make it more relatable.

IF that's how women look when they meet up to spend time together, then me and my friends are weird - we laugh, enjoy ourself and definately don't wear a "This is such a waste of my time" or "Honestly I will kill you, or myself in a moment" expressions.

Why all the girly books? I'd usually be reading Stephen King (my favorite!) and eating junk food when no one was watching.

This would never happen b/c 1. as a fat kid, i never waste food, this is crazy to me. 2. if i put my plate on the floor, the cats would be all over it. 3. i'm never to tired to not eat.

Isn't this just "things people do sometimes, sometimes while alone, sometimes in company" just pictures of the mundane and I do not understand how the activities pictured are exclusive to women?

Nikki
Community Member

It's never implied that they are exclusive to women. And if you read the artist's description of the series, it's more like things most women wouldn't show on social media.

So baisally women do nothing but eat and watch movies in a variety of places and ways when no one is looking. Cute drawings and everything, just kind of a sad commentary on women. After the first 10 I would have liked to see some of the more novel aspects of what women do in thier downtime...

If, instead of food, there would be a book, remote controller, joystick, or snacks (to keep it faithful to the actual picture), then I would relate more.

Accurate! Then when dry, you run your fingers under relatively warm water and the polish on the skin around the nail is easily pealed away.
