Momma Writes

Working and parenting win! *falls to a heap on the floor and sleeps*

Me & Babe working away!

Managing to catch a few minutes here and there to “work” has been a lifeline. Any new parent knows that it is ridiculously hard to do anything AT ALL. I look at these pictures of myself, and they make me feel good, that I was lucky to catch 15-20 minutes of work time to get shit done.  Being a new mom is frickin hard, but I have never been so in love, creatively challenged, out of the comfort zone, inspired, awed, transformed and so many more verbs. It has been the best thing that could ever happen to me, for all the normal, obvious reasons, but, because I am writing on my art blog, I want to emphasize what it has done for my work.

Sleeping babe? Bust out the keyboard and work!

While everything takes longer to create, I respect the time so much more. I write more freely, read more non-fiction & short stories, study, learn, absorb & focus so much more than before. I have made more digital art than ever before, and I think Bebe has made me MORE creative, using bold bright colours (babies apparently see bold, contrasting colours better) & making collages like I did when I was younger. That was something I never expected to happen, mostly cuz I AM SO TIRED.  Here’s to being a parent!!
