first of a series of drawings I'm thinking about doing, where I take lines from songs/books/films/etc. that I feel some sort of connection to and draw whatever picture comes to my mind thinking about them.
This one is from the song Sleep Patterns by Merchant Ships.
If you're not familiar with this band, I highly recommend checking out at least this one song :) https://youtu.be/rrcpzPpo8_Y
WHY WE SEEK #COURAGE ~ and don’t stop until we find it.
Let’s not pretend. #Citizens and residents in smaller #American towns do not typically enjoy questioning #authority. Many of them don’t even dare to #vote. The response can be nasty.
But day to day problems, fears and discomfort — no matter what we do and especially when we always try to do the right thing — weigh heavily on our moods.
The news is depressing.
One of the best cures for #depression is speaking up and out against #bullies and unfairness. If we let the most unpleasant people we know take control of our lives, we are going to suffer needlessly from #hopelessness and #helplessness.
At the end of the day, it’s very hard to feel “depressed” if we respect who we are, what we know and how we use the information we have.
First of all, my window is not in perspective which makes me mad. Everything else is really metaphorical. First of all, before anyone gets mad at me, the scratch marks on the walls are not from the person with mental illness, they're from the demon that hurts them (man in the window). They are also there to make the room feel unsafe. It makes them feel like there is no real safe place for them.
The reason that the cross is being drawn toward the demon, is to show that the demon is sucking up all of the light in the room. In stead of really having a light source, I had a point that eats the light. I tried to show this by having objects near the window darker and places shielded from the window, lighter. Obviously, I didn't do too good of a job at it but I tried to draw aight shadow in front of the person. I guess the person is the light source in this drawing because areas further away from them is darker.
I'm currently working on a drawing that depicts what happens to birds in hurricanes. It's macabre, so I'm not quite sure what that says about me? But I know there's purpose behind this study. I'm seeing a few parallels. #creepy or #insightful
