moleskin monday: pink haired and broken

I just have time for a quick Moleskin Monday post, and as a result I'm even cheating, as this sketch doesn't come from a moleskin. Eep! This little girl resides in a regular old nonmagical sketch pad. She'll have to do, though.

Her page is bent and imperfect, but I don't really mind. I'm thinking of just tacking her to the cork-board above my desk and letting her hang out there for a while.

I have this new habit of writing whatever comes to mind all over a page in cursive because (I'm practicing. I CANNOT write in cursive) and then drawing over top of it. It's like sealing off the thoughts I had, keeping them private and packaged within the drawing. So she's a consequence of this.


  1. I really like your idea of writing then covering it up with a picture! It must be nice art therapy :)

    I used to do something similar to vent to myself, by writing whatever I was feeling (which was usually angry haha) in a one inch spot or so and just writing over top of itself until it became an unintelligible rectangle of scribble. I usually felt better afterwards.

  2. Yessss crazy writing is so good!

  3. I love this idea...sealing your words with a drawing. It's really very beautiful!

  4. Awe, thank you. I love it, too! Very therapeutic.

  5. Very cool. Sweet blog. :)
