Hey guys! This week has been a very busy workweek which feels good. Don't have a bunch of drawings to share this week since I have been painting totes instead of doodling. Its been fun painting totes and I am planning on releasing more of my "you are strong" design onto totes and more shirts in the coming month. I am making a full transition on how I use my instagram because it use to be a place to show off friendships and how hot I looked to impress people who don't actually care. Now it feels good to separate myself a bit more from it and only use it as a means to grow and find new inspiration. Its an easy social media platform to start judging and comparing which is awful but true and I know its playing a role in why our generation has social anxiety. I have honestly been feeling the same way and its something I am working through. Our actions of how we handle things are in our hands and now that I truly understand that its made letting go of old friendships that were stuck or no longer fueling either sides easier.  I have always been seen as someone who forgives people but sometimes in life you have to know your limits and put yourself first if it means maintaining a better balance of life. I know for myself that I am an emotional person that really wants to care and listen to what most people have to say because I see the greater good most of the time but I was losing touch with who I was and only having a very superficial presence. People will always read you differently than how you see yourself and once you realize that and start just being who you are making choices for yourself get easier.  Which is probably why I have become more of a hermit these days. Anyways here are some drawings I have done this week 

 Been inspired by skateboard videos lately. As a teen girl I always dreamed of being like the guys at the skatepark landing sick moves. It feels good to get in touch with that side of me again. All my life I have wanted to be a part of all the boys club from hockey to skateboarding to comics... honestly a lot of things are boy clubs and I am ready for that to change.

 These anxious doodles started after I made the mistake of getting involved with politics on facebook and feeling tender.
