What message are we sending when we tell a community that they are included, but that inclusion is not visible in pattern pictures or in the designer’s social media feed? How will they know what the design looks like on a fat body? They will just have to make it to find out, I guess.
If you’re tired of looking at the walls of your home, I encourage you to get outside and find some art! Of course practice social distancing, and try to go when you know it won’t be crowded. Are you unsure of where to start? Use google to locate the art so you won’t be wandering aimlessly.
I get asked about my creative process often. If I had to describe my process in two words, it would be “follow through.” Today I want to talk about what following through means for me in this season, and also, what it doesn’t mean.
In order to follow through, my creative process has 3 parts: idea, plan, and create. The process is not always smooth, nor is it linear. I tend to “go with the flow” to create my best work, but even that requires some preparation.
