The world’s most perfect creature is a decade old today. I love this old lady more than I have words for. Swipe through for some 🍁Maple Appreciation🍁 including a photo of her delicately eating a birthday cookie at last week’s celebration AND the very first ever photo I have with her from when I met her in her foster home years and years ago. #oldpuppy #pittyparty #maplesamazinglikethestarsinthesky

My little siblings made me feel like a dang queen this weekend. I’m real awkward in front of a camera and don’t take a lot of photos of myself, so this whole experience felt both really playful and luxurious. Photos by my ridiculously talented 14-year-old brother @mitchell.mckays.photography and makeup by equally upsettingly talented sister @carlymckayart. Only thing missing was @mrscmack singing 💖
It feels like it’s been one hundred years since I’ve made anything with my hands, I miss it something awful and am trying to get back to a healthier balance again. I was so grateful to spend the afternoon yesterday playing with wax and ink in my childhood backyard with my siblings by my side, couldn’t ask for a better way to spend the day. much love to @lu.mckay @carly_j_m and @mitchell.mckay 💖

some recent dailies, part 1/2; animal tracks, shells, fish, houses, leafy greens. the 10 switched to a less daunting 5, and while dailies aren’t always truly daily, the practice is steady and true. I’ve invited some pals to take on this challenge with me, accountability goes a long way. thanks pals, you’re real nice.

adventures in terrible hiking footwear: Cuyahoga falls edition. (snapped by a very patient @brantleyreally)
it was a fine weekend.
big wedding feels, big photo dump, big tears big joy big love. I spent as little time with my phone as possible this weekend so I have very few photos, but I’m so glad I snapped these couple of sweet moments. so honored to have stood with you @cathm14. and Fonnie, so thrilled to call you my family now.
My little sister’s getting married in the morning, and I am absolutely cherishing these moments of calm before the swarm of activity kicks in. my mother and co-maid-of-honor-sister spent the afternoon assembling bouquets and boutonnières in the basement of the family home, right on top of the old pool table we’d spend our summer nights around, singing along to old love songs while we worked. this is going to be such a beautiful weekend. huge huge waves of feelings over here, hug your sisters everybody.
Ten things a day, every day. Days 6-10: Birds, spoons, dragons, boots, beetles. Give me some ideas for the next ten! #draweveryday #illustration #micron #drawing #artdaily #practice
Ten things a day, every day. I just finished up Day 10 and am feeling like I’m really starting to get somewhere. Here’s Days 1-5 (the order got scrambled a bit, whoops). Cats, cups, hats, leaves and mushrooms. This has been such a gratifying exercise, rebuilding skills that had atrophied, rebuilding practice, rebuilding discipline. #draweveryday #illustration #micron #drawing #artdaily #practice

Meet the Mack’s! I made these portraits and frame for my sweet sister and her soon-to-be husband. We toasted the couple last night at their wedding shower, and today we steal the bride away for her bachelorette weekend. Can’t wait to celebrate this girl ❤️ #coupleportraits #handmadegifts #linocut #handmadewedding
2018 - year of the moth.
the second annual first-week-of-the-new-year drawing, I hope this little tradition sticks.
