In this series, I capture personal observations of my family snuggling. As we all adjust to life “sheltered-in,” I have become more aware of the ways we self-soothe to comfort ourselves in small, overlooked moments of rest. My drawings include my sister cradling a book, my dog napping, and toes curling around each other. My choice of a series around this theme is to highlight the beauty in our natural inclination to snuggle. In doing so, I had the opportunity to draw some of the most important people in my life. I also enjoyed developing my understanding of charcoal and proportions.
In the future, I look forward to further exploring the medium of charcoal, and continuing to embrace this unique time “snuggled-in” with my family.
