I finally picked up Milk and Honey (Rupi Kaur) and also Lang Leav‘s poetry collections: Love Looks Good On You. Needless to say, it was the boost I needed to start working on my second poetry collection! There are so far 60 short proses and poems in the draft, and here is one of them.
“Have you started bleeding?”
“Of course! Last year!”
“Wow. How does it feel?”
“Oh, you know, just a bit bloody. Not too bad.”
Why hasn’t mine come yet?
Is something wrong with me?
Where could I have gotten more information
Other than the other girls’ conversations
Why was there no education
No open communication
On something so important
As our menstruation?
For more of my poetry, you can check out my first poetry collection: A Season of Poetry at the shop. Thank you for your support!
Here is the digital art commission, and the artist is Laurentia Prisca.
Get to Know the Artist
As usual, curious me asked the artist some questions so I can get to know her better.
Airin : How did you learn to draw?
Laurentia : Self-taught from tutorials! And also seeing references which is similar to my style.
Airin : What attracts you to making digital art ?
Laurentia : I saw some of my favorite KDrama illustrations on Instagram, so I got interested to try it out, but not seriously. When the lockdown started, I was so bored being at home all the time, so I decided to refresh myself by working on the digital art.
Airin : What do you do for work ?
Laurentia : I’m a geotechnical engineer.
Airin : (at this point I am highly impressed) I bet you have other hidden talents! What are your other hobbies?
Laurentia : I enjoy singing, and I watch a lot of movies.
