Yet another one about love.
sumi ink and watercolor on 140lb watercolor paper, 9x11in.
“Long Legs”: I remember, while still a “kid”, examining my limbs and being in shock of how my body seemed to be growing ahead of me: thinking these legs were too long to actually be mine… so, that’s what this is about.
I was also thinking about body dysmorphic disorder; while usually associated with eating disorders and low self-esteem – and, as a disorder, being negative. Not being a psychologist, I’m unsure whether there is a variation on body dysmorphia that is not so overtly harmful – merely, an incongruity between one’s self-image and what others agree is reality. For example, thinking your arms are long enough to entirely wrap around someone else.
These stickers are now in the etsy shop!
The simple pencil drawing “hug” is now available as a print in both 5″x7″ and 8″x10″ on le etsy.
Printed on soft, heavy watercolor paper. This is one of my favorites, because it’s so simple and so to the point.
I’m really bad at writing about love. But I’ll point you to this guy -> http://pleasefindthis.blogspot.com/ who doesn’t seem to have a problem.
