Katie  I like drawing things, wearing things, eating things, & complaining, in that order.


What a wretched weekend it's been. Here's some art.

In these photos: me trying to pretend I wasn't feeling super awkward all day about not wearing a bra. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Dress, shoes, bag: @lulavintagemn

This is Zosia.
When I was a kid, I wasn't allowed to have pets until I was in 2nd grade. My dad is allergic to cats and didn't want a dog, so as a child and teenager we only ever had hamsters, mice, and gerbils.
When I was a sophomore in college, I adopted my first cat, Sheba. And through owning her and the subsequent cats I added to my little clowder, I realized just how much I love and value animals.
Cats have a weird reputation. They're associated with the feminine, with unpredictability and capriciousness. They aren't "man's best friend." Yet I can honestly say that my cats have been the single best decision I've ever made for my mental health. I've seen people doubt whether cats are capable of loving people, but in my mind there's no doubt at all.
Now I have 4 cats. No doubt that puts me firmly into "crazy cat lady" territory. But I don't care. I love them and they improve my life. Having the ability to make sure that their lives are full of love and contentment is something I'm deeply grateful for.

More graphite work.

Take me back #tbt

My hair is Very Blue again.

Been rediscovering my love of graphite lately.

I see you. I support you. Your lives matter.

First day back in the US and first day I've worn a full face of makeup in a week = clearly time for a selfie, right?

It's a humbling experience to be reminded that, for hundreds and thousands of years, people have lived their lives much as we do now.
