Week 15 - Quirky Animals with Tam
Do you remember last year when I shared the series of Quirky Birds that I had done as part of the Life Book 2013 classes?
Well that was such a popular lesson, with quirky birds are popping up all over the internet, that this year, instead of birds, we did a series of quirky animals.
I love drawing stylised animals. Besides my big eyed girls, it is one of my favourite things to draw, (check out my alternate alphabet). And I have been drawing stylised animals since I was in high school. (Mainly because I couldn't draw then realistically!)
In particular, my lion, (Lionel) has graced pencil cases, diary pages, folders, sketch pads, paintings + friends arms.
If you have know me since I was a pimply faced teen, you will probably remember Lionel!
So it was hugely fun to choose animals, which mean a lot to me spiritually, emotionally, physically. Some who are new to me + some who are old friends
So meet my quirky animal team:
- The Monkey - because I need to remember to play more, have fun, life is not always serious.
- The Zebra - because although we may all look similar, we are all different, unique + gorgeous creatures
- The Koala - Because I really need to look after myself more + get more sleep. Candle burning both ends here guys!
- The Deer - Because I am a sensitive + I need to be reminded that my intuition is almost always right. Trust in it.
- The Elephant - Because I need to just barge through the road blocks + obstacles that I put in place to obtaining my dreams.
- And Lionel, my lion - a reminder to be constantly brave + grab my courage + let go. Also, he is the freaking king + no one talks shit to him, so a reminder not to take any shit - no matter how well intentioned.
So there you have it, my animal totem.
Do you have an affinity to a particular animal? I would love to know which animal speaks to you + why that animal is so special.
