There’s two types of Autumn:
- the bright, colorful, happy autumn with pumpkins, apples, candles, and great food
- the dreary, dark, creepy autumn with overcast and rainy skies, scary forests, cool temperatures, and halloween
And I love them both!
My moon face, autumnal lipstick and a nice necklace and that. Had my fringe trimmed since, though.
Last thursday, waiting at the bus stop, I was holding my Sammi maquette (a sculpture of a character I created that is very fat and curvy) when a girl came up to me and complimented me on her. I thanked her then she returned to her friend. Shortly before I got on the bus, I overheard her say to her friend “See, that’s what I mean! If I ever asked someone to make art of me, I would want it to look like (she gestures to her large, curvy figure) me!!”
Representation is so important. People who are not white, skinny, straight, etc, need to see characters that look like them, it is imperative for self-esteem and self love! I don’t ever want to hear someone say ‘You need a reason to include a character that isn’t white’ Our lives are not circumstantial!
