I drew this image a while ago but recently came across it in a sketchbook. It made me think of the strange times we find ourselves in these days, where keeping your distance from someone is a real thing. It looks to me like these two silly characters are eyeing each other up from a distance. They’re kind of wary, sizing up the situation, not sure how close they should get, or how the other person feels about it. I’ve been there! And I’m guessing you have too at some point!

All of the fabrics used for the prints are vintage or reclaimed fabrics that are sourced from a magical fabric sale that happens once a year in Calgary organized by the charity Ujamaa Grandmas. Donated fabric fills the basement of a church, with most fabrics going for $1/metre, and all proceeds going to the charity. It's honestly one of my favourite days of the year and has lead to me having a large and cherished collection of amazing fabrics. Because they are purchased second hand, I cannot be sure of the fabric contents.
