Can't believe it has been two years since I made a sticker sheet. Here is a new one. I have been working on affirmations for a decade as a gift for people, to myself, and to just share my type drawing skills. This one I made as as a reminder to take care of yourself. I need it to remind myself. Please hustle, do good work, fight for whats right, stand up for your rights, all that. And....take good care of yourself because the world needs you.
This is a short I've been wanting to do for awhile. In fact, I drew this sketch over a year ago and never put the final touches on it until now. For those that don't know, a Haenyeo is a word for Korean women who dive off the coast of Jeju island. No time for a history lesson but what they do, many could not at the age of 20 or 80.
Check out Marcus Books in Oakland if you have not already. If you have, please go back there and support again. You can not only find history, psychology, memoirs, novels, children's books, graphic novels, non fiction, and fiction. But, you can also request books and they will order them. And when you buy it from them instead of through online giants you're helping to keep the dollars in this store and the Black community of Oakland.
