These are my cathartic doodles to deal with my fear of spiders. My terrifying, exhausting, all consuming, irrational, debilitating arachnophobia. The art is primitive, but I like to think of it as primal. Primal as a terrifying etc. arachnophobia. Do I really think I can depict 99 ways in which I am afraid spiders will kill me? The real question is can I limit it to 99. If you share with me a blah blah blah fear of spiders, let the cute and nonthreatening art soothe you and I am here if you want to talk (about spiders). My shoulder is yours to lean on readers.
