I made doily wands with my info on them. They are sort of magical. There are also a few dolphin wands.
Things to do for the future:
I just graduated with my master’s degree and for the first time in twenty-four years I can no longer identify as a student. The structure that has been set up in my life for so long has just collapsed. I feel like I am watching more TV these days.
I am also drawing more. I fill up pages with funny dolphin stencils and doodles and glitter. The absence of school has given me the ability to start having more fun in my work and it feels much more honest now. The pieces are sad, funny, nostalgic and hopeful all at the same time.
I use sheet ghosts a lot in my work to represent my friends and myself. When I started drawing ghosts they were full-sheeted figures. I always thought sheet ghosts were the scariest kinds of ghosts. However, I eventually found myself identifying with the ghosts and realized they were my way of placing myself in these made-up fantasy worlds. The ghosts soon evolved and became fashionable girls that are still in search for their identity. As my friends and I all find ourselves at this place in our lives we rely on each other to figure out who we are and where we are going next.
