"i/we miss you"
I am kinda into animal guides. I try not to be, but I get wrapped up in the idea that I could have some sort of connection (be it illusive or not) with an animal. I kinda liken it to always wanting to be my grandmother’s favorite grand-baby. Thinking throughout my childhood that I was her favorite and special. Adolescence brought along with bodily changes, the notion that everyone thought they were her favorite too. And as a teenager my mind could only wrap around the idea that favorite inherently implies one. One and only.
This drawing is both for my roommate, who always loved the wolf-man and for my family. We even went to see the somewhat new movie on Valentines day, you know the one with BENICIO DEL TORO as the wolf. (side note- benicio is very sexy ugly, so much so that wolfman, or not. i’d date him.)
Duely a reason for me making these cards is that when I was in Minnesota last week, the image of us(humans) as being pack animals kept coming to mind. You could say that I had an awakening, that may have been as a result of bb-my dog- getting his teeth pulled, of how short life is and how much I need to be around the people I love. And it was father’s day too boot.
Anyway, this one is titled, “i/we miss you.”
