HOW TO lettering my single mothering

For single mothers, we are to prioritize our children’s lives above all. My days are filled with working and maneuvering my children’s activities. What comes first? pokes through the anxiety of my solo mothering.

Drawing letters is to acknowledge that my role as a mother leaks through all parts of me but it is not my core. I started relating my mothering with my individual sense. Instead of finding this work-life balance, I live my mothering and caring through this act of drawing letters that allows room for what I aspire as a designer, to communicate my voice, and to always take up space.

Jessica Robles designs lettering and more with the background of the green mountains of Vermont, and three growing children. She plans to be an educator, and currently enjoys working for her design studio, Sumak Kawsay.
