Life in the Fast Lane

This here’s my newest 8×10 drawing from my Saving the World series. I am an addictive multi-tasker, so this drawing needs to be tatooed on my arm to remind me to stop doing so many things at once. It’s one thing to try and expedite the process of cooking dinner, but the other night, I was chopping vegetables, grilling peppers, and refilling the dog’s water bowl, all at the same time. My boyfriend said quite plainly, “you’re trying to do too many things at once.”

What is it about the world we live in that makes us feel like we aren’t working hard enough if we aren’t trying to do ten things? Maybe it’s just me, but there never seems to be enough time, so I end up trying to cram in a bunch of activities or tasks at once. What I’m beginning to learn is that this behavior leads to many half-done or half-appreciated things. But learning is a slow process, so I need to make many notes and signs to remind myself!

Prints of this “Slow Down” drawing are now available in my Etsy Shop as well as the lovely set of 5 x 7 prints of my Dream drawings/paintings below.

    My boyfriend and I are like the tortoise and the hare. Guess who’s like the hare?

    That design would make a great t-shirt!
