The Consciousness Series: Fluidity


I've fallen a little behind on my art schedule and I know I've been MIA, but life is busy. I found a Wizard of Oz puzzle on Amazon, as a lightning deal and I couldn't pass it up. It sat on my desk in the box for about a week, until I popped it open. It's a 1,000 piece puzzle, but I figured it wouldn't take me more than two days to complete. I was WRONG. 

That shit took me almost a week, but it was well worth it!


I hung it right above my computer, so I can glance up at it and be reminded that life is a lot like a puzzle, in the sense that you have to find the perfect piece to become one step closer to happiness. The funny thing is how frustrating that might feel, even when you're trying really hard to succeed. The pieces are literally hiding in plain sight, but the more you connect, the farther you'll ascend down your yellow brick road :) You have to be aware that everything will fall into place if you're making moves. 

So because this took me about a week to do, I fell off track with my art schedule. I'm expected to complete my newest piece (psychedelic, alien vibes) by June 3rd, but I've only outlined it. 

You know what's been keeping me really entertained while drawing? Podcasts! My coworker Janine finally persuaded me to listen to S Town and I was hooked. Rabbits was the second podcast that I caught up on and I'm about to start listening to Tanis. 

Rabbits is by far my favorite of the two. It's about a girl who begins searching for her best friend, who mysteriously disappears. The quest to find her missing friend leads the protagonist down a twisting rabbit hole. IT'S SO FUCKING GOOD! 

You can listen to it for free on iTunes under the podcast tab, or on their website. The story is only six episodes deep (each one being an hour long), so you can easily catch up. They post a new episode once every two weeks. 

Without further ado, here is Fluidity coming to life:


This photo (which happened to be the background on my phone for months), played a significant role in the inspiration behind the piece...

She's a Pisces and I'm an Aries, which I thought was ironic. 

Lastly, here's a cute little candid shot from the Fluidity photoshoot:


Much Love!
