Sitting across from my husband at our kitchen table, I was watching the “Boondocks” and shoveling Chipotle into my craw when I say to him…”Do you think I should shave one side of my head?” He contemplated for a moment. My husband and I have many times had discussions over whether or not I should shave my head. He isn’t the type of guy to tell me what I can and cannot not do with my hair because I am a grown up woman and I’ll do what I damn well please and he respects that. However, we talk about how square my face is and we decide maybe it isn’t such a good idea.
But suddenly, he looks at me contemplatively and says to my utter surprise…
“Wait until Halloween and then shave it and you can be Furiosa and I’ll be Mad Max for Halloween.”
So I shove a little more Chipotle in my mouth and after I finish that last forkful of Tex Mex goodness, I go into our closet and pull out some old photos of 25 year old me.
She shaved her head. She rocked it, despite her young adult insecurities.
There are a few things to contemplate before such an adventure again. Mostly dealing with the comments from strangers (as with anything like this, especially where I live) draws attention and I’ve always been a weirdo magnet.
But we’ll see.
I think I’d make a wicked little Furiosa for Halloween. 😉
I made a banner. It’s simple and I’m using it. It’s challenging making this stuff but still fun. This is what I have wanted to do for so long now. I know I’ll get better over time. 🙂
Practice, practice, practice. Here is my second attempt at illustration. An angry cupcake. We won’t talk about how long it took me to make this. 😛
It’s not much to look at but it was my very first attempt EVER. I used a tutorial because I have no clue what I’m doing. I like how it turned out and I will practice more. I used Adobe Illustrator. It was super fun to do! Can’t wait to do more!
It’s been awhile since I posted. It’s been a rough couple of months. HOWEVER, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and part of that light happens to be the above.
I am super excited for this! I have my husband to thank for it. I wanted to squee with delight and throw up all at the same time! His response was for me to follow through. I’ve downloaded GIMP to get me started since I have zero clue what I am doing with editing software. I also started looking into Adobe products. I can’t wait for the weather to get better so I can have some adventures with my camera.
My husband says my calling in life is to be a writer. After seeing this terrible piece, he might be on to something. 😛
It was a good day. There was a terrible movie, cuddles with the pups and ramen. 🙂
Have a good week!
Finished my little paintings for the bathroom. They aren’t the best BUT that’s what this whole year and blog is about practice! Acrylic on canvas.
