Motherโ€™s Day

It’s been a while since I did a comic. Been experimenting with different styles and ended up making it colourful with a bit of a pastel / retro aesthetic.

I decided to create the comics on Procreate since it was easier for me to do the shading along with adding the text. It’s quite a different direction, compared to using Comic Life by plasq.

I created Betsy and baby Betsy for this comic, inspired by my Pillow Pet plush animals. They’re always together, no matter where they go ๐Ÿฎ

Mother’s Day has been quiet, but filled with plenty of sentimental moments since I decided to stay home and celebrate with my family. It was also a dual celebration since my son’s birthday is this week. Can’t believe he will be turning 4 and starting Pre-K this year! How time flies ๐Ÿ˜จ

While I’m grateful & fortunate that I’m able to spend time with my family, my son and being able to speak with my mom – I know that Mother’s Day can be a difficult time for others.

For those who are struggling and doing their best to cope – I want you to know that I’m thinking of you. If you ever need to talk or want to share your experiences about Mother’s Day, I am opening this space for you.

Namaste,

Diana

Why you should leave an introvert alone

It’s not you. It’s me.

Well…that depends on the person and the situation. Still, I’m selective on how I like to spend my time ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Being an introvert is not about purposely pissing off folks just to be left alone. A lot of times, we just want that solitude to recharge our batteries. I’m pretty sure there are other folks that I’ve declined invitations wonder as to why I don’t want to mingle and socialise.

I’m content living at home, doing my activities and tending to my personal businesses.

Betsy, on the other hand…well, she makes sure to have her boundaries in place ๐Ÿฎ

Introverted peeps – let me know in the comments on how you cope with situations like these.

Namaste,

Diana
