430-432 of 642 Things to Draw

IMG-8160I enjoy drawing these each day while sheltering in place. 🙂  It’s interesting to see what I am excited to draw and what I dread…but I never let myself off the hook. I’m not skipping any. I believe persevering and working consistently will improve my skills even if I’m not happy with results.

 

Who Gives a Crap?*

My friend Karen knows everything. I bet you have a friend like that. She knows the most eco-friendly companies, the best recipes, the most delicious and exciting restaurants…well, she posted pictures of her kids building toilet paper moats around her on Instagram. When asked where she got her TP, she shared that she buys from a company called Who Gives a Crap.

They use 100% recycled paper. Because Karen was a subscriber before the pandemic, she has received her supplies on time without any interruption. Who Gives a Crap donates 50% of their profits to providing toilets and sanitation improvements to developing countries around the world.

If you visit their webpage, you’ll be met with this splashpage:

But no worries, they’ll replenish soon.

What The Bird Told Me

IMG-7955

There is a mockingbird that likes to perch outside my bedroom door each morning and squawk mightily. This, despite that it’s 6 am and, due to the pandemic, I can sleep in. This bird does not care.

I noticed that on some mornings, I am grateful and happy to hear the bird.

Other mornings, I am annoyed and flirt with the idea of shooing it away.

Same bird. Same noise. Same time.

Different me.
