Shapeshifter

Sunday, June 5, 2011






The older I get, the more I feel how I've been shaped and shifted by the people I've met, the more I realize that I could never go back, could never occupy the same space I once did. But when I think of who meant the most, who marked me most irreversibly, I only think of you - Meagan Morrison

Hello Lovelies,

Happy Sunday to you all. You have no idea just how much I've missed you and our conversations. Today's post incorporates some of my final class sketches from fourth semester. I had wanted to post them earlier but felt, much like I did with Petal Pushers, that these works needed just a little something extra. Susan's stances in these illustrations made me think of shape and opposition, how an object can force us to stand differently, shift our weight. I guess between the images themselves and my excitement over summer, fruit got tossed in the mix :)

The word Shapeshifter kept playing over in my head when thinking about this post. I like how the figures seemed shaped and shifted by the lime slices and blackberries. But most of all, I love that in life we are shaped and shifted by the world around us. Now that I've officially graduated I can't help but look back on everything that has lead me to where I am today. I'm reminded of my 20th birthday gift in which someone very special bought me books on moving to New York as if they knew all along that this is where I was meant to be.

Shapeshifting might only apply to having the ability to change your physical form at will. But I think I'm being shape-shifted every step of the way by the people I meet who touch me dearly.

Lots of love,
Meag xx

  1. LOVE THESE. Like the idea of shape-shifter you have been playing around with. Your girls seem to pop out like something in a 3-d movie because of your color choice and the lime and black berry shapes. This is really REALLy neat.

  6. It has been a while since I have been here. Love these!

    Happy how far you have come.Much success! Similar thing happened to me, two great people encouraged my move to NYC. Some things are just meant to be. You are meant to do great things and inspire others along your way. :)

  7. Love the backgrounds you've chosen for this series and the Petal Pushers one ;)

    And yes, I agree about being "shape-shifted" by the people we meet! It's amazing how the little actions of other people can affect us personally.
