I drew this flying zebra in November.
It is to be one in a series of three zebras.
I ended up using it for my holiday card but
that was not my original intention.
that I realized that I had drawn it facing to the left.
That in itself is no big deal really. I can flip it in Photoshop.
However I have discussed with my sister, who is an art therapist
how people who are depressed, dying or those types of situations
will draw with a direction of left. Sort of like the last photo
my Dad was working on before he died was a sunset.
When I was almost done with this I discovered a lump
in my breast. It was confirmed with a biopsy to be cancer.
It may be silly but the drawing scared me as much as the cancer.
I had a mastectomy December 21st.
Before my surgery I drew my second zebra facing to
the right. I finished it two days before my surgery. I
felt very compelled to get it done before surgery.
