EDM #4--Draw your cup
Here is my EDM challenge, draw your mug or cup. This coffee cup drawing does not do the original a lot of justice but I will get better over time. The original has a drawing of Alaskan life on the river.
This is one of the many cups that I got when I was living in Alaska. Anica is the name of a village I THINK, but I do know that it was the name of a grocer in Bethel where I lived for 18 months.
I miss living there, the people are oh so different and live at a much slower pace of life. The big factor that will keep me away from there are the 8 to 9 months of winter. It is extremely icy and dangerous.
The natives still do a lot of living off of the land, and are always helping neighbors. It is another world compared to Atlanta. The Yupik Eskimoe are a people anyone would love.
They are a bit slow to warm up to you, but once they do they are a friend for life, unless they feel that you have wronged them, then they will not have anything else to do with you. They are bad about holding grudges.
