Artist Uses Drawings To Capture How Awesome It Is To Be Single

at1:00 pm | By

Valentine’s Day is thankfully done. For single people like me it can be just another day. Or it can be a day to reflect on your love life, past, present and future. That can lead to sadness and loneliness for many; but for others being single can be a breath of fresh air. My favorite parts are that I decorate my place the way I want it, walk around naked, and I don’t have deal with someone else’s mess.

Mexican artist Idalia Candelas creates illustrations that are simple, beautiful and poignant. She did a different drawing everyday for a month, calling it Inktober. This series is on why she enjoys being single. Browse her art and find comfort or justification on being single.

So you might not be a smoker, but it’s the idea of doing what you want where you want in your own home.

No sharing the bed and naps whenever you want. You have your own personal space, which is invaluable.
