Finished illustration based off a grouping of the words: sweater, luggage, telescope, rowboat, docks, portholes, chimneys, and steep hill. The limited pink, yellow, and green color palette was hard to navigate at first, but it was super fun once I got the ball rolling!!
Also with dumb sharks!!!

LOOK AT HOW CUTE ALL THESE DANG LITTLE SHEEP ARE. WINNERS.
hey mcad friends. and other friends. just friends, in general
I was thinking, I beat myself up a lot. It comes and goes in waves. And lately, with graduation coming up soon, and me not knowing what the hell I’m going to do, I’m doing a lot of that. And I was thinking, I know a lot of you do that too. Thinking about the future makes me feel scared and worthless and insecure.
But then I was thinking, I know I have friends who feel like that too, and I would never want any of you to feel that way. You have worked really goddamn hard, and you are talented, amazing people, even if you can’t see it in yourselves, other people see it in you. I know you wouldn’t want me to beat myself up, because I would never want any of you to do it to yourselves.
So if you’re freaking out and senior project is killing you and you’re worried about the future and every time you take any sort of break you feel guilty about it, well, I know that feel. But I value you. And it helps me to value myself when I think of myself as one of you.
in summary: you are good. let’s all try to be nicer to ourselves.
