Challenge 90: Healthy: Progress is Not Linear

It probably won’t come as a shock to you that I chose mental health as my focus for this challenge. I wouldn’t consider myself very successful in the other realms of healthiness– being perpetually out of shape my whole life, and giving into cravings rather easily. But since mid-way through college, back in… geez, that was like 2010, so seven years ago (shit, I’m old now!)… I began the long journey of therapy. It has helped me grow, mature, gain strength and wisdom about myself and others, and I know I’ll continue the journey for the rest of my life. But most importantly, it has always been filled with both ups and downs. Sometimes you need to fall a little first, in order to step someplace higher.

Challenge 91: Science: There Is No Planet B

When Emily announced this challenge theme, I knew instantly that I wanted to create a sign for the Science March on the 22nd. I carried this, printed at 18 by 24, with a whole bunch o’ other nerds, fighting for this planet– which we should respect much, much more than we currently do.

Challenge 97: Subway Card Art: Unified Train

Barely squeaked this one out in time– it was way more of an undertaking than I realized, and I also procrastinated last week a little bit. Wrong challenge to do that on! haha :P 

Trying out a new style I’ve been playing with– the goal is to eventually also use color with it, but I had to scrap that part because it wasn’t looking right. I’ll practice it a little more, and then show y’all.
