I drink tea to spare those around me.
I hang out with cats because they can read my mind.
I read gigantic books because the real world doesn't have dragons.

"What I’d Rather Be Doing" by Kjersti Faret

A personal piece. Watercolor, gouache and ink. 

This was created because I was feeling stressed. I needed to make a picture about what I’d rather be doing than preparing to graduate, doing tedious written humanities homework, seeing the buildings outside my window, etc. (Sometimes I feel like I’m a country girl trapped in the city)

Also, hello color. I haven’t seen you in a while.
