Every 6 month there is a major Solar event that I dedicate a great deal of my thoughts and efforts to: Solstice. Solstices punctuate my bipolar nature swinging from too much darkness to too much light. To celebrate this awareness I make greetings cards, sometimes more than just one.
This December I drafted 8 of those Merry Winter Solstice cards, 6 of them you can see HERE.
But 2 of them I had doubts about and consulted with my Inner PR person.
- Too phallic, - she said about one. - In this political climate golden balls attached to a golden penis is the last thing people want to see.
- This is too dark, - she said about the other. - And what are those little hairs between the legs? Too suggestive of pubic hair. It will upset parents and will ruin your reputation. If you publish this you may never be able to run another successful Kickstarter campaign.
So I didn't publish them when the Solstice took place.
But the effort that went into making them kept nagging me. Now when my Inner PR person sleeps on her soft nest of laurels I am publishing the drawings for you to judge if they are too dark and too suggestive. What do you think?
