Hello! I’ve been very awol on here while I’ve been unwell, and I know the timing of my silence has not been great. I’m really sorry ❤️ I haven’t yet shared anything on my grid in support of the black community, and I want to be totally clear. I support Black Lives Matter, and I’m committing myself to being anti-racist. I’m committing to learning and unlearning, now and going forward. Right now, I’m working on taking small daily actions. In @moemotivate’s “How to support black lives” video on her IGTV, she describes anti-racism as ‘an active, daily practice’. Active. Daily. Practice. Those three words are what I’m telling myself when I’m not sure what step to take. There is so much I have yet to learn, but there are so many great educators and advocates to learn from, and I am going to keep taking steps forward, and keep practicing.
My completed #SixFanarts eeep! I had so much fun with this challenge 😊 My final character is the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (and her sidekick Tippy Toe 🐿)! Swipe for a close up! Squirrel Girl is my favourite Marvel superhero! But most people don’t even know she exists, so I was surprised and delighted to receive a suggestion to draw her. Thank you @hello_krat! 🥰🧡 She has the proportional strength and speed of a squirrel, and can also communicate with squirrels, which makes for some super creative and entertaining crime fighting. Her comics are funny and empowering and just delightful 😊 I’m slowly getting back to some drawing as I’m getting a little more energy. Still not feeling totally myself, but I think the iron is starting to work it’s magic ✨ Still taking things nice and slow. One day at a time 😌
Cozy autumnal details ☺️🧡 Slowww swipe! We’ve been putting up our autumn decorations this past week, and filling the house with fairy lights and candles. The days are getting a bit greyer, it’s getting dark earlier, and I’ve been needing lots of naps lately, which has been making me feel like I’m not seeing much daylight! But twinkly lights really help so much ✨ I haven’t had much energy for taking photos and videos, so these are some of my ones from last year 😊 I got a blood test done last week (major victory 💪), and it looks like my iron is just low, and that’s probably caused the tinnitus and everything! So hopefully with some iron, I’ll be feeling much better soon 😊 In the meantime, I’m leaning into the hygge, and taking things super slow. How has your week been friends? What’s been helping you? ❤️ [ID in comments]
My 5th #SixFanArts character is Barbara Novak from Down with Love! 💕 A lil bit less famous than my previous characters, but I couldn’t resist this one! Down with Love is one of my favourite films 😊 If you haven’t seen it, I recommend! It’s a spin on the 1960s “no sex sex comedies” that Doris Day and Rock Hudson starred in - and it’s zany, brilliant, feminist, and so much fun. It’s such a visual feast too - all the costumes and sets are outlandishly over the top vintage gorgeousness 😍 And THAT MONOLOGUE 🤯 Peter MacMannus also makes me laugh til I cry in the apartment swap scene, every time 😂 Thanks to @bobgaudio for today’s character suggestion ☺️ Have you seen Down With Love? 💖
Swipe for a lil collection of joyful things! ✨ How are you doing my pals? ❤️ I’ve been struggling along a bit the past few weeks, which I know I’m not alone in at the moment! I haven’t been feeling very well, and I’m not sure what’s up yet. But I’m hanging in there and doing my best to be suuuper gentle with myself 😊 Week three of @being_change’s #createshiftchallenge was to connect to things that bring you joy - and although I am a few weeks late making a post about it, I’ve been compiling and savouring these moments over the last couple of weeks. I hope looking at them brings you a bit of a smile too! That photo of Babs with my mum makes me giggle every time I look at it 😆 What a silly kitty! She’s a never ending source of joy ❤️ [Image description in comments]
Anne of Green Gables 🌿 Today’s #SixFanArts character is for my lovely mum, @carolinebindon, who is quite likely the biggest Anne fan of all time 💚 I spent a lil bit more time on this one! I wanted to try and capture the awe Anne has for the beauty of the world around her ✨ I’m not sure which character to choose next, you’ve made so many great suggestions ahhh!! It will be a surprise for us all 😆
