Yet another appropriate theme for me to illustrate.
I've been trying to teach myself the art of detaching so that I can stop being so sensitive to what other people say or do around me. Maybe detach to save myself from being hurt or heartbroken.
A piece of me to stay whole, and the other to escape.

If I detach too much... what will I sacrifice?

IF- Sail

Luckily, for once, the obvious didn't seep into my head when I put my pencil to the page this week.
Sailing to me, lately is a mixture of freedom, but with freedom comes a price. My body feels free to sail wherever it wants, but it seems I'm still tethered to the ground by my mind.
So this is what Sail means to me this week.

Colored pencil and graphite.
(Although, I think the original looks better than the scan)

I was really sad when I put this one together, its a bit of a self portrait. OK, it's an all out self portrait.
You get the idea.

I love love love paper dolls!
