Your twenties are really weird. Like, about up to the age of 22 I sort of didn't really think about what and where I was going to be when I grew up. I was just going out, travelling, working a bit and drawing as much as I could. Suddenly at 25 it all got a bit silly but serious all at the same time.
Now I have this strange pride at staying in on a Saturday night baking muffins and major remorse over going out until 5.30am the previous night. However that Friday night will be one of the best nights out of my life and I loved every second of it.
It's a strange place to be in, and lots of people write about this confusing period in a much more literate way than I'm managing to (Sloane Crosley is a favourite for this kind of thing.)
I find myself wanting to learn to fix my broken shelves, throw sophisticated dinner parties and thinking about money a lot, all at the same time as texting my best friend for the location of a party with free food, buying "just one more" cocktail and arguing over which X-man is the coolest (FYI it's Nightcrawler).
Anyway the point of this ramble (other than people seem to prefer to read things on facebook than on my blog) is that I seem to have come across an illustrator who perfectly depicts this odd in-between time.
Mouni Feddag has popped up on my radar before but it was only after I delved into her truly impressive website that I realised her work shows not only cool grown ups throwing dinner parties, but also cool not quite grown ups hanging out together and figuring it out.
I've kind of completely fallen for Mouni's work which is why I've shared so much of it. I hope for the other mid to late twenty readers you get what on earth I'm waffling on about and relate to Mouni's work as much as I have.
