I’ve been enjoying the 2009 vs 2019 art posts people have been sharing on social media and had to have a look back at my own. The first thing I noticed was my outfit drawings so I updated one of mine from earlier this year to compare. It’s so cool to see how my drawing style has changed and improved.
I had to include my new Rilakkuma plush as I’ve needed a lot of emergency hugs this year. I drew him completely freehand for realistic wonkiness and it was fun to make the outlines more fuzzy too.
2009 didn’t feel that long ago but this drawing takes me right back! I realised my life has changed so much for the better since then (though I still wear those Birkenstocks). I’m much happier to be living in Helensburgh and never having to go to that post office again. That was the last time I had long hair too, though I’m much better at not just tying it up all the time.
I was going to do some product comparisons too but I already did that for 2007-2017, which is pretty similar.
