Drawn reports in the form of the portraits - war in Ukraine. July 17-23, 2023.

July 17-22 2023. Days 510-516 of war.
This week is special: our conversations started on video and continued in person! I’m visiting my parents in Croatia: meeting all the cats, identifying flowers together, catching cicadas and lizards before it gets too hot, and talking, talking, talking. I’m using this opportunity to draw my parents in profile and get more practice in Ukrainian. We walk, watch the news, call friends and family, and cook together. Trying to hold on to good things and not fall apart from the hard ones.
