fathers-day

shout out to all those struggling with Father’s Day today. 

whether because you lost your father and it hurts how much you miss him. 

or because your father has hurt you. 

or because your relationship is damaged for whatever reason. 

or because you look up to your father but get nothing in return. 


for whatever reason, if today is tough, my thoughts are with you and please take care of yourself today.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely mothers and mothering people out there who take care of us. Mother’s and Father’s day have already been happening elsewhere around the world, so here’s Father’s day too since I like seeing them together. I had loads of fun with this, even though the holidays have a bit of potential to be controversial. My intention was to take a very lighthearted and universal approach in hopes of just reminding everyone to celebrate the sometimes unsung heroes who care about us. You can see some of my process work [here!]

to everybody without a father, or not close to him: it’s okay. you don’t have to feel bad becasuse it’s Father’s Day. today is a day just like any other one and you’re still as strong as ever. you’ve made it this far without him, and you can make it through today as well. you are not alone. I love you. I’m proud of you. you are so strong my love! so strong
