Above is a recent illustrated poem I have created which will be another page in my poetry book that I am working on in my free time. And this is another reason why I won’t be a regular writer anymore for Yogi Approved or Bad Yogi. My writing is going in another direction and I’ve grown as a writer that I want the freedom to write what I want and how I want. My illustrated poetry book will hopefully be published through amazon and will have about 50 poems and prose inside plus illustrations and collages by me, making the book a real feast for the eyes!
This particular illustration holds a lot of symbolism. The rose represents Aphrodite the goddess of love & beauty and the arrow is symbolic of Artemis goddess of the hunt & the moon. The mermaid represents the darker,sensual and wild side of the feminine.
I’m feeling very creative at the moment and I’ll be working on some new dream catchers to show soon as well and a few more articles to write up before our holiday in Bulgaria at the end of this month, so stay tuned for all to come!
The two sketches below are cute mermaid doodles designed onto bookmarks for two friends. I like making these and will probably do more just for a bit of fun and who knows, it could turn into a children’s picture book?
