Art Description

Drawing: Pen and Ink on Canvas and Paper.

This has been my journal for the last 12 months. Slowly it began for form a picture. It has thoughts and feelings that have shaped me. Many from the day I would have written them and just as many from my past. Some are just one word and some are paragraphs but slowly the words formed a falling man, a metaphor for my feelings of this year of feeling helpless and stuck in a downward spiral leading me where I did not want to go. Some sentences are shocking, some funny, some basic but all utterly truthful. I attempted to create the most truthful selfpotrait I could, if you would like to see the scale of the writing you may message me to my inbox and I can show a zoomed in version focusing on a section of the face. This is possibly my most stunning work and has been incredibly well received and is highly desired.
