Been in a creative dry spell lately (weeks?months?) can't figure out anything I want to make. And it perpetuates and i start to psych myself out and become afraid to make anything!! But I spent this morning coloring and Not thinking and designed my dream bathroom full of spaghetti and flowers and it filled my head with new ideas and endorphins... reallllly gonna try and color/draw more & try and find that flow!! Also this toilet is subconsciously inspired by @decorhardcore pin lol
1 more photo of the snail's dream room made w @artbabygirl (they stayed here for hours absorbing lettuce and eating cucumber pillows lol) PS we are responding to everyone tonight about details for the Chicago art baby @soft.center pop up shop - thx for reaching out 2 us!
Today I woke up incredibly anxious and overwhelmed (ambiguous mix of love and pain!!) I am taking this morning to write to myself and get my thoughts in order. Try and start making a plan for myself in order to take the power from yesterday into next steps/actions. There is So-Much-To-Learn and Unlearn. I keep thinking Freedom is a constant struggle (Angela Davis) and that this fight is long and uncomfortable, slow process with a lot of moving parts. And a LOT of gaps. This really is so big! I felt such power from the women's march and seeing ppl show up all over the world- this int'l protest for women's rights is overwhelming. It gave me hope. But I keep thinking about how 53% of white female voters in this country voted from Trump- White women need to do this work & start having (or continue having) hard conversations w/ other white women to open up the conversation and make this fight for all women, not just some. We need to work hard to keep an inclusive, intersectional movement. Stay committed, stay critical, think globally. I am feeling LOST to be honest my head is spinning. But I am here for you, I am listening, I will stay working hard
I am so excited for this!!!!! Feb 11 is @artbabygirl's first solo show "Remember Me?" at @soft.center • We are also having a Pop up shop that day so if you are a Chicago-based artist we would love to include your prints/zines/art objects etc!
