Sunday Finds #009
Feels good to be back on the blog. I am really struggling to balance my full time job, the blog, art, and friends/family. Seems like the blog always falls by the wayside, which I'm so dissapointed in. My goal for September is to create a better work/life/passion balance. How about you, do you struggle with the balance of life and work?
Anyway, here are some finds to help you start your week off right.
+ "5 Easy Ways to Ease Your Eco-Guilt" I am always looking for more ways to be environmentally friendly. I only have one caveat–it has to be easy and seamlessly become part of my routine. As aforementioned, I only have so much time in the day and adding more intensive ways to reduce my carbon footprint (such as zero-waste) requires precious time I do not have. So here are some simple ways to do better without loosing your time and energy.
+ "Motherhood in the Age of Fear" by Kim Brooks from The New York Times. I am not a mother, but this article had me hooked. It made me question my gut reaction to a mother leaving her child alone (even for a few minutes, as my parents did with me as a kid), taught me about "free-range" parenting, and made me further question sexism and peculiar law enforcement tactics. A must read even if you're not a parent.
+ "4 Easy Ways to Make Your Beauty Routine More Environmentally Friendly" Speaking of simple steps to adding eco-friendly habits to your life, here are four steps you can take to reduce waste in your bathroom.
+ I love Laura Callaghan's work. Her use of detail has always floored me. And, if you check out her instagram stories, her process videos are strangely captivating and calming.
I was recently commissioned by @unboundbabes alongside fellow illustrators @cosmicsomething @kliuwong @robineisenberg & @yokopium to help illustrate their first subway ad campaign, positively depicting self love. Unfortunately it’s been rejected by the MTA for containing ‘offensive sexual material’ despite featuring no nudity or overtly sexual imagery save for a few discreetly placed sex toys 😡 See all the images over on @unboundbabes #WTFMTA
