Am I normal yet

Welcome back to generation why An Arty Feminist brought to you by An Arty Feminist.

For English homework o had draw a character from a book I’m reading/read and labelling what they look like so here’s what I did.

I chose the book Am I normal yet by Holly Bourne which is absolutely amazing and you should read if you want to read about mental health as it’s amazing! It’s a story not often told and I found it eye opening so if like to share some of what I wrote in my homework with you.

First of all I drew her (which by the way I’m so proud of!).

I then wrote some stuff about her on the next page.

“In the drawing her posture is stiff and awkward in a way as she doesn’t want to touch anyone. She feels like she does at fit in and is out of place. She’s also in constant pain from all the stress and the constant cleaning.

Her face is sad and also stiff ,it seems slightly like a call for help, her eyes especially calling for help. Her lips are dry and cracked from not drinking much, her cheeks sunken in from lack of food and nutrition. There’s bags under her eyes, due to lack of sleep, probably up all night panicking and stressing.

Her right hand is covered in scratches over washing until she bleeds, converged in her jumper to hide them. The other hand is behind her back so that it’s hidden, she doesn’t want both exposed.

Her body shape is skinnier than it should be for a fourteen year old girl due to lack of eating. Her jumpers and jeans are a bit baggy so she doesn’t look as thin as she is.”

If you can I would quite like Holly Bourne to see what I thought of her book so pls repost this to her, thanks!

Choni drawing

Welcome back to generation why An Arty Feminist brought to you by An Arty Feminist.

I’m sorry I said I was gonna post everyday, I did not realise act all how busy I actually was!

Anyway I drew a a picture of Cheryl and Toni (choni) from riverdale. I absolutely love the show riverdale, it’s AMAZING. I also really like choni so I decided to draw them and I’m really proud. I’m gonna do a series of ones of them and then move onto bughead!

I personally think their adorable and it s a completely different style than I usually do so they will improve but here it is!

Saturday 30th June

Welcome back to generation why An Arty Feminist brought to you by An Arty Feminist.

Saturday 30th of June

The first day of Summer. The first full day of Summer. Yesterday was the last day of p7 and it was fun because we had half a day of Summer. We went to McDonalds for lunch with a friend and Cosmos for dinner with another friend. But now for Saturday.

I woke up at 7 but I was to comfy to leave my bed so I stayed there a while. When I finally decided to get up I got some watermelon for breakfast-which was very nice and watched the first ten minutes of Brooklyn nine nine before we left for the train station! Exciting-I know.

ON the bus we then realised I forgot my jumper which was just great. It was actually okay though because it was very warm in the destination-a surprise, exciting!

I decided to bring my pencils with me on the train and drew this eye. I’m really proud of it as it was a very shaky train and it actually turned out really well. I copied a tutorial I found on Instagram by @shierly_arts.

When we arrived in Glasgow (surprise) we went straight to the comic con (surprise!!) to get my comics signed for free (SURPRISE!!). There’s nothing better that free book signings at comic con. Generally free stuff is good.

I got Black Canary signed by Annie Wu who drew the cover and a lot of the drawings. We also got some of her other stuff signed.

We went round other stalls and got a FREE pride flag sticker and bought a unicorn with a pride flag, a fat bee and another unicorn but holding the lesbian flag for a surprise guest.

I went to a stall selling comics for 15 pounds and the owner was talking about the runaways and how nice Kris Anka was. We decided to go check him out and asked how much the comic was and it was apparently FREE!!!! (You know me and my free stuff.) So that was awesome.

I bought many other comics and 2 books- Simon vs the homo sapiens agenda and The opposite of okay which I’ve started to read and so fr is very good.

After we saw the whole place we went out for lunch at Tim Hortons where I got an iced hot chocolate, a cinnamon and raisin bagel with cream cheese (THEY WERE OUT OF EVERYTHING BAGELS) and ten jam timbits.

I took my retainer out and it ended up getting binned which is just great but I didn’t realise until three hours later when the trash ahd been taken out. This was just amazing.

After that we stopped by a live hip hop performance done by three kids and their which was amazing.

Then we went to Paperchase (one of the best stores on Earth) to get my summer journal and some glue which we found in the first ten minutes but we spent an hour in there because its paperchase-so it was just a quick visit.

We did some looking at the Lego store and that was really fun. There was some really awesome sets but they were SO expensive. In the end we just got some Lego Batman mystery figure packs.

It was around then that we realised the retainer was gone and I cried for the whole walk to Pizza Hut (surprise). We had some time to kill brfore we met our mystery guest so we went to Waterstones where I calmed down (mostly cause I was surrounded by books).

We then went to pizza hut went to pizza hut with (drum roll) Claire Heuchan AKA Sister Outrider. Dinner was delicious and I had way to much to eat and drink as usual but it was delicious so I was fine with it.

We took our train home after that and apparently there was an on foot police chase that Claire saw (I was oblivious to the fact that this was happening even though apparently my mum saw police?)

On the way back I read my book- The opposite of okay, which is really good and funny.

PROLOUGE

Welcome back to generation why An Arty Feminist brought to you by An Arty Feminist.

It’s the summer of 2018 and I need to write! I’m setting a target for myself-write every single day of Summer. Every. Single. Frickin’.Day.

I’m very bad- like horribly bad- at fulfilling my targets. Great at setting them but horrible at keeping them. This summer will be different. (I hope.)

Everyday I’m going to write a detailed desccription of my day into my new Summer Journal (which I bought at paperchase obviously), no matter what I did or how. Boring it was. And I’m going to post these on my blog, but if I say a friends name in my journal, when I type it up on here I won’t say their name.

I will stick in things, like drawings, stickers and postacrds if I got them, drew them or their just relevant to my day.

I don’t have anything else to say so lets get started.

Procession

Welcome back to generation why An Arty Feminist brought to you by An Arty Feminist.

On Sunday I went to a procession marking the anniversary of when white middle class women got the vote in Britain.

I say middle class women because that’s the truth. Other women didn’t get the vote in Britain until later.

We went to the meadows and we got our scarfs (either purple, green or white) and we marched in order of colours. It was organised incredibly well and from above you could see the colours.

People had made these amazing banners and flags with all these amazing cutouts and quotes.

It was really fun and we marched from the meadows to the parliament.

The only thing wrong was that it was clearly marked online as a female only march. That’s because it’s an issue that women want to celebrate with other woman.

But men decided that they needed to come as well. As they say said they were fighting for equality they ignored the fact that it was a woman only march. They decided that they needed to be there as well. They decide that there privilege was more important at a woman’s only march than the women who fought to be there.

Eye improvement

Welcome back to generation why An Arty Feminist brought to you by An Arty Feminist.

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in quite a while but I got logged out of my account.

I’ve been doing a page of eyes for about a month now so I’ve decided to post a picture of it. I’ve done ten eyes on it.

Please post in the comments your favourite eye and what you think I need to improve on. I would love to hear what you think. But if your going to leave criticism remember to say it nicely.
