On Weddings and Catholics

Just a thought: How horrible is it, that an event that is supposed to be one of the most beautiful and happy occurrences to any human being- the announcement of their engagement and wedding, the solidification of the fact that from the entire world’s populace they have found the soul that matches theirs- is marred by the dissent of a group because of the involved parties’ genders? 
This is something that is plaguing me. E has been very excited and focused on what our wedding will be like. As much as I want to whole-heartedly fling myself into the bliss of planning, every time she mentions it, my stomach sinks through the floorboards. Why? Because I can already hear the issues and I can see the despair in my father’s face and the tears in my mother’s eyes. “But we worry for your soul,” they say. Well, can they not see that they are crushing that very soul with the politics of their religion (the religion that once used to be mine, but slipped away from me because of the realization that God was no longer an entity that felt real or warm to me) ? I want to be happy. I want to be able to dream up what sort of dress I might like. But I can’t help but see the empty pews/chairs, or- perhaps worse- the looks of disgust on my family’s faces when my bride kisses me. 

I am so upset over this. And I don’t even know how to breach the subject. I haven’t spoken about the status of my relationship with my parents in a very long time. They don’t know. I’m too frightened to tell them. 

What this comes down to is a complex ball of emotion care of Catholicism, and it is ruining something that should make me happy. I feel so guilty, because I want to be able to talk about something that is making E so excited and happy, but I hate thinking about it. I feel ill even typing this. Things shouldn’t be this way.

Cover Design for Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh, done for my Portfolio class. Had so much fun! Happy to be designing things more. Pictured are Charles Ryder and Brideshead itself. Not Bridey. He isn’t an English country house. If you don’t know the story- seek it out! It is completely worth your time.
Medium: Ink, Pencil, Digital

THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING. -E

Dear E, Time Keeps on Slipping Into the Future.

Life without you here has been kind of weird. I’ve had some great days- hanging out with mah buds and talking over food. But, between those good days, there’s a whole lot of me just getting accustomed to sleeping alone, walking the streets of Philadelphia with no hand to hold- basically, going back to the freedom of Freshman year, but with this empty spot in my chest. 

Things have been pretty cool, though. Everyone’s art is amazing in my class and I’m starting to feel better about mine. The internship is incredible and everyone is impressed and worried about how I commute to New York from Philadelphia and still manage to get to the office by 9:30am. I’m learning a lot about publishing and it’s nice to do work that’s relevant to my interests. 

I’m super jealous of all the face time you’re getting with Charlie. I miss her so much. I’m also jealous of all the time she’s spending with you, since I miss you one heck of a lot too. 

Keep me in the loop. It seems like we’ve been texting less and less and I hardly ever get to hear your voice- that hurts the most. Forgetting your voice.

I love you. -A

It’s hard to not hear “Closing Time” playing when I look at this. Personal piece.
Medium: Ink

I’m just really happy with how this came out— and that never happens.  -A

The bear and I sleep together, and we don’t care what you think, E. 
We comfort each other in our times of loneliness. We are lonely often. Long distance relationships are hard since the person who normally cuddles you is not there, so we cuddle each other in your absence. 
These are our bedroom eyes, since the bear never leaves the bedroom. (nor do I, honestly.) You could call us friends with benefits, I guess. -A

The redhead. 22. Born and bred in the Philadelphia suburbs, currently hanging out in Brooklyn. Spends her work day in Manhattan designing cute books for kids. Enjoys using her drawing skills to make comics revolving around queer people, flouting her strict Catholic upbringing.

Likes admiring hand drawn typography and producing her own, the fine illustrations of JC Leyendecker, the works of JRR Tolkien, mens' fashions of the early 1930's, drinking whiskey, super campy BBC programming, and anything that involves Stephen Fry. Very into classic rock and chinese food. Gryffindor.
