Come do it with me. (Not sexually.)
Y'ALL ARE HERE. I'm literally a little teary right now. I love you guys so much.
Your colouring book brings me comfort.. although I was scared to write in it because it's a book you can't f***ING write in a book...
I think you're a psychic on top of all your other gifts, Jenny, because I really needed a motivational/creativity kick in the pants right about now and it's like you KNEW. That's a bit creepy, but soooo helpful. I can't wait to see your new drawings. I love your coloring book (and so does everyone I've given it too). Your drawings are beautiful and moving and I can't wait to see more.
I’m in - at minimum commitment but maximum cheering level. I can’t art but I can color
Your coloring book did me so much good! And I still have the markers I bought for it, let's see if they're all dried out :) I can update you all on my knitting, which is the art that makes my brain happiest.
These are beautiful. I knew you were a great writer- I didn't know about the art. Have you thought about illustrating a children's book about Beyonce?
I spent half of the summer doing what I called "My Summer of Mediocre Art" to try to get myself to make art regularly but then stopped because I got in a funk again. I love You Are Here so much and am hoping that you trying to get yourself to make art again will inspire me.
I am here! I don’t know how any of this works either but if there will be pages I can print out and color in, YES PLEASE!
This sounds like it's going to be loads good fun and maybe some good trouble as well. 💜
This is perfect because both my stepkids are now at college as of last month and my husband is on the other side of the world for a few weeks as of today so I should probably art and not be self destructive
Perfect timing Jenny! It’s about to be Rosh Hashanah and I’ve been meaning to do something like this for ages! So grateful to you for what you put into the world and how you cultivate this community!
You’re blessed with gifts of writing, drawing AND the sense of humour I wish I had! It’s almost unfair; I guess I’ll just have to settle on developing a fantabulously outrageous menagerie of fur-babies.
I needed this reminder tonight, to do things that bring me joy, and also that life is just a continual progression of doing shit without understanding how any of it works, fucking it all up, repeat until dead. But we make such beautiful disasters along the way, and these beautiful disasters bring such joy to those who witness them. So I’m taking an hour tonight to enjoy my beautiful disaster of a life. …And while I’m thinking of it, I’m going to book a weekly appointment with myself in my calendar “enjoy my beautiful disasters” because dammit, time is slippery. I also make “REST” appointments with myself so this isn’t unusual for me. Self care is hard work yall. Seriously
SHUT UP. Thank you for your kind words and link, MY GOODNESS! What a totally unexpected thing to discover while my husband is asleep next to me--I had to put my hand over my mouth and silent scream! This is great, too, because WOW do
I make some weird “art” and lately I’ve been thinking about these weirdo things no one knows I make. I can’t wait to show you. 😜 Yeay! What a great idea you have! ❤️ Way to Substack!
I'm here for all your craziness, Jenny!! Your art is an inspiration and I want to put more good into the world! Let's do this!!
