I love butterflies. I think they are fascinating and beautiful, and I love their representation of rebirth and renewal (appropriate for Nov. 4th!) This little guy is a drawing from a small art book I am working on that is loosely about my relationship with NYC, my new home 10 days from now! It has been a really cool project as the meaning of the pictoral story has completely changed as I have changed my way of looking at it. When I initially created the drawings, it was because the city made me feel trapped and overwhelmed, but now they seem so full of hope and creation and life and remind me that change is exciting and an opportunity, even if it is at times scary!
