A sleeping cat is one of the easiest things to draw. Try it yourself 🙂
Now that there’s a pandemic, we spend more time alone, we see our friends and family less often. And yet, some days, I still feel like this:
My new design:
I drew it after reading this. I recommend you read it if you have trouble saying ‘no’ as I have. Now that I think about it, saying no — and, as a result, disappointing people — is a complex issue, and I will write more about it in a separate post.
The other day I was at a hairdresser’s, and a woman sitting next to me was complaining about everything, and I mean everything. That she had to cook dinners and it took a lot of time and she hated it. That it rained too much. That these were difficult times. That it was too hot on sunny days. That women were shallow and cared too much about their looks. That men preferred those kinds of women.
Real-life situations often inspire my designs. I had to suffer listening to all that, but at least I knew what I wanted to draw when I got home:
That reminds me of an article I once read: “How Complaining Rewires Your Brain for Negativity”. It’s worth reading, but in case you don’t read it, here’s a relevant quote:
Repeated complaining rewires your brain to make future complaining more likely. Over time, you find it’s easier to be negative than to be positive, regardless of what’s happening around you. Complaining becomes your default behavior, which changes how people perceive you.
It’s so hot outside. Here’s my most relevant design:
This is not a popular design — it has just reached $100 in total sales. That’s not much, but I like this design, it’s so pleasant to look at.
“I will sleep until my problems disappear” is my new design, and I will add it to my new store soon.
I am experimenting with different colors. Most of my designs used to be black and white, but in my new store, I plan to have more variety.
