Harlequin Life by KilowattKatie Harlequin Life by KilowattKatie
My entry for the Lysaght Watt Trust Art Award. Theme: Daily Life

My description: "MS affects my daily life. Mixed signals play tricks on me in different ways from week to week, from one side of my body to the other, and everything in between."
Medium: Traditional pencil/digital paint (entered as a print on canvas).

EDIT: I came 3rd in the People's Choice award! Big thanks to everyone who voted for for me.

Did this back in April. I would have liked to approach it differently; make it less self-portrait-ish and more painterly. I might try this again at a later date for funsies... :D (Big Grin) - my t-shirts and prints and stuff

Dang, I love the loading symbol in the word bubble. Very clever!

Thanks!! There was a time when the words were there in my head, but my mouth wasn't along for the ride. I found that the loading symbol was the best way to represent that.
Thankfully, that side of things is better now (touch wood). 
And I always love your stuff. :-)

Thanks! It was at a time when I was having trouble with my speech and getting words out - so the loading symbol summed it up nicely. No worries - it meant I got lots of hugs from kindly strangers! Anyway, it is better now (touch wood).

I always thoroughly enjoy looking through your gallery too. :-)
