Fire Eyes.

  

Fact :: I have solar retinopathy from looking at the sun for too long during an eclipse as a kid. I remember where I was standing during this eclipse, on a lawn of the elementary school grounds… with my class + teacher. The sky was blue. I took off the glasses and thought I ought to be able to look at everything here, on Earth. Why not?

This past week the dots in my central vision transformed into a triangle (a symbol for fire, when equal + upright). I had a migraine from weather changes, and the ocular fun has yet to fully rescind. Naturally, I accidentally created this doodle… and by ‘accidentally’ I mean completely unintentionally. The simple matchstick actually looks like an eye with eyelashes when turned on its side. The sun got me – fire + eyes.

Planets.

  

Fact :: I never know where I am going with these drawings, but ever since I found my carnelian necklace – wrapped by my friend Sunshine (her birth name, seriously) – I’ve just wanted to draw more. In this random art, it looks like the Earth + Moon are hanging out as a sunflower. Jupiter, Mercury, and Mars wanted to join for some reason… which I am sure I will learn about “why” in some random way tomorrow. 😂
