A new lil spook for ya!
Your boys been in hiding again but we got some time coming up next week if you wanna get weird with it 🤙🤙
I really don't like doing florals because quite frankly when I'm drawing... I'm litterally just screaming "BAGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!" In my head like it's a fucking heavy metal breakdown the whole time because I'm a crazy person and this is how I expresssss myself 😊 So this is the closest ya get to a flower, a pretty delicate little flower thats SCREAMING BECAUSE BUDDING SEEMS EXTREMELY PAINFULL AND HARD TO DO!!!
Hit me up @inkandwatertattoo to come let your freak flag fly and come tell me about your pollen allergies 🤘
Dot Day ‘19 was one for the books! Lots more photos to share, but I just had to throw out a few pics from today. All of the kids had a ball ‘making their mark’ on me, parents were so supportive and helpful, and I so appreciate all of the excitement of the other teachers who brought their classes to Dot Central!
We started our dotted room, fashioned after #yayoikusama and it is a HIT! I can’t wait to see it at the end of the week. We are going through stickers fast! If you have any colored, plain, circle stickers that you’d like to send in, that would be helpful!
If you’re wondering why we celebrate International Dot Day, here’s why:
A super cool author named Peter H. Reynolds wrote a book called THE DOT, about a little girl who thinks she can’t draw. Her teacher encourages her by urging her to ‘make a mark’ and see where it takes her. She gains confidence and creates and creates! Later she is able to do the same for a little fellow who admired her art and thinks he can’t draw. It’s such a special book, reminding us to just ‘give it go’ - no matter the task. I think it’s a book for the ages and for any age!
Over ten years ago, an art teacher decided it was so important that it deserved a day, and the movement began.
We had a blast today and will continue working on the dot room through Friday - it’s such fun to see the kids so excited!
