Friday Finds #9

Typing this as I work from home today. It was 32 early this morning and raining. Within an hour it had dropped 10 degrees and was snowing. Which means ice under snow. Not my favorite driving condition. Those conditions resulted in a totaled car 20 years ago. So, I'm in yoga pants and a hoodie, sitting at home listening to one of my dogs growl at the postal worker from the second floor bedroom.

Of course, this evening was the first session of my class this semester. This will be the third semester of teaching female superhero course and I've completely revamped it. I'm nervous to see how it goes, but I guess we will rip that bandage off next week instead.

I started working through the lessons of Mari Andrew's Drawing for Self Discovery class on Skillshare and love it. If you keep a journal, you might want to give this class a try. It doesn't require amazing, or even decent, drawing skills. It's all about expressing yourself in a new format. If you are familiar with Andrew's work on Instagram, you know that most of her art is filled with text rather than images.

Have a great weekend!
