OTM #8: Daydream

Hi all! We’re almost to the end!

Sorry for the simpler sketch today, I’m currently sick in bed, trudging through this final week like it is my last week on earth. My motivation as of late has been a childhood classic, my dearest circle friend Kirby! The soundtrack really takes me back to my childhood, where all I ever needed to think about outside of school was beating the bosses in each game. I’m telling myself that once the semester ends, I can buy the new game and fully get in touch with that side of myself again. I haven’t been able to really enjoy a video game in so long; I think that’s a strange adjustment with “adulthood” I’ve faced, where suddenly something as simple as a video game feels like a concept I’m no longer allowed to engage with. Suddenly, if I have down time, I feel as though I should be going to see friends like every other student.

But, no, today I’m not allowing that idea to prosper (I also quite literally cannot since I have to quarantine). I am forced to relax, and this relaxation has taken my mind back to what brought me joy in the past. I think it’ll benefit us all in stressful times like these to remember a simpler time, to daydream a little! I’ll leave this post with a track from Kirby Super Star Ultra that really defines my headspace at the moment: https://youtu.be/PLKRbL41wWA

I hope you all have a lovely week, thanks for reading!


Hello, I'm Katelyn Sliwinski! I'm a senior studying communications with a minor in writing, but I previously was studying digital illustration, so I'm happy to be sharing my art with you! I want to use my artwork to appreciate the mundanities of daily life; it's improved my mental health tenfold to just stop and look around once and a while, so I seek to capture that joy and show it to you!
