Prozac, Thorazine, Zoloft is a group of hand latch-hooked pillows. These soft, oversized anti-psychotics and anti-depressants provide a different kind of comfort than their prescription counterparts. The time consuming nature of the latch-hook process provides a sufficiently mind-numbing effect. Latch-hooking is a simple but tedious craft that has traditionally been used to depict idealized and romanticized images from domesticity and nature.
My ceramics class is obliterating my hands
They call me coffee cuz I grind so fine
They call me coffee I keep you up past 2 am
They call me coffee because I’m really bitter and most people don’t like me without changing some aspect of what I am
Can I just pay someone to cuddle me and let me kiss their chin and hold them and tell them that their problems are insignificant and that they are important?
"I finally understood that great works don’t begin as great works. They begin as rough ideas. I realized that creation is a process. I thought if I can understand the first step I can learn the next step. I was fully aware that I had much to learn, but I was confident that I could learn it.
Here’s a rough sketch of my own. This is the sketch that later became the cover for The Bad Beginning”
