I made this drawing as a postcard for a friend, along with the birthday gift of a set of clamps. She’s a master of DIY, making her own furniture and stuff, so clamps are an actual gift to this woman. But her boyfriend is more of the kind that prefers to buy ready-made stuff.
And to be honest, I can relate to him.
As much as I value DIY projects and I try to un-teach myself to use the word ‘buy’ every time and in stead replace it with ‘make’, ‘borrow’ or ‘find’, I have to admit that buying stuff is still quite a strong reflex.
But looking at these storks we would have to admit that it a rather unnatural thing to do, right?
