This drawing is inspired heavily from the book "Ojibway Animals" by Jason Adair that I picked up at the Art gallery. While Ojibway is probably the most prevalent of our various types of indigenous background, I hadn't done much exploring there for some reason. This book inspired me to think about that part of our culture a bit more. I was struck to by the similarities of this art style to the west coast styles of animals. I really like the pictures in this book and the colors were very inspiring. It is a baby book and would be fun to share with a little person as well. I think I will try to create a fabric piece using this inspiration. I guess I just got caught up in plains styles. Moose teeth all the way.
Have been reading Bustle.com lately and find myself a bit surprised by the mix of celebrity gossip and moments of thoughtfulness. I wanted to share this article on body positive/feminist social media personalities to follow. I liked this one where plus sized women shared their most body positive picture of the year. I was thinking of this article as I was at the pool in my bikini not feeling too bad about myself. I also enjoyed this article talking about plus size privilege. Always gotta check the privilege. I have also found a number of new to me plus sized stores through browsing their articles. I guess there is a teaching there. We are all made up of moments of the sublime in between gossip and everyday worries.
