The other day my 6 yr old son said to me, ” I wish I was a girl b/c then when I grow up I don’t have to work”. I almost fell over, and believe me while others in my family have found it amusing & hilarious, it’s actually been a source of sleepless nights for me. So allow me for a minute to stand on my soap box….
For a wile now I’ve struggled with labeling myself as an Artist, Illustrator, Designer , Stay at Home Mom or none of the above? And for this reason I’ve come to dread mtg new people and the inevitable…. what do you do question? The sad part is my first instinct is to say “NOTHING”!! I realize I only say this b/c to so many people (including myself) I am not really working unless I set my alarm, get suited up, grab my Starbucks and drive off to my cubicle. I am not sure why I think this way, especially considering that I am about a million times more exhausted at the end of each day in comparison to when I had a corporate job. The truth is, I (like so many Mom’s), am all of those things, and rather than being so concerned with labeling myself as a “Working Mom” I should just be content with knowing that I work my ASS off everyday!
To that end, here are a few shots of some of my recent hard work, including some new city prints and a pictures of a Trunk Show that I did this past weekend.
