‘I shall never be a morning person, for the moon and I are too much in love.’

I think this drawing totally sums up how I’ve recently been feeling – a gothic soul giving off hippy vibes. This mindfulness project has all been about my journey in reconnecting with myself, my art and my inner peace. I feel that it’s not so surprising then that I’ve reached a time in this project where some reflection is in order.

When I was a kid, back before I discovered black as a teenager, I had a dark blue bedroom with glow in the dark stars stuck to the ceiling and sun and moon print bedding; so I find myself so happy that along with my tie dyed t-shirts and other grunge apparel, it all appears to be back in fashion. It all seems to have grown together with a huge revival of interest in the occult which is particularly apparent in alternative fashion. Perhaps it’s fortunate timing, perhaps I would have found my way here on my own, but I finally feel like I am connecting the dots and rediscovering me. That’s what this weeks drawing is all about. Finding the balance of all the things I love about nature, love, life… and finally being able to express that visually through my work.

So this week I will not be dissecting what I like and don’t like about this drawing, what’s worked well and what I could improve, but rather offering it to you simply with love. Aware that this weeks offering means much more to me than you, I would like to encourage anyone who’s enjoying this project or is on their own journey, to come forward and chat with me. Leave me a comment or direct message me your thoughts.
