Deer Girl

I’ve been drawing loads of these lately, and I don’t know why. Drawings of young girls saying goodbye to an animal that they look like in some way. I’ve done deer, birds, and I’m in the middle of doing a wolf right now.
I don’t really know why. I was thinking about what they might represent, and I kind of thought that it’s like, that there is a part of you which only one other thing understands, this spirit of play and imagination. But then when you grow old, you lose that spirit and you are left alone in the world being this strange creature because the only thing which understands you is gone. Also there are little faces in the trees which are kind of like people watching. I dunno.
Don’t listen to me. I’m just crazy, ok?
