i'm not referring to the haunting of ghosts or other paranormal activity.
i'm referring to the way the past haunts the present,
the way it can possess you and suck the life from those around you.
the way it can make you into a person more guarded and terrified than you were the day before.
it writes your chapters for you, and it tells the tales in the worst way.
i guess i'm not so mad about the way the story ended,
but moreso at how the plot seemed to thicken against me at every turn of the page.
ugh ugh ugh. ok. i'm sorry guys. this is just a small piece... and it's eerie and creepy and YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS - something's on my mind!!
as per usual, bad feelings transfer well into creepy drawings, but i had to keep this one delicate. personal reasons, i guess. too much gore would feel dishonest for what i was trying to convey.
and i apologize for the lack of completeness/quality, but i just had to get this image out quickly. spending too much time on it was bringing up feels. yuck.
just another way to release some of the stuff clouding up my mind. honestly i wasn't feeling too bad when i sat down to draw this, but a while back i had an image for this drawing - the perfect way to release these thoughts & memories. and i just had to get it out.
i could go on for ages about this, but i'm past that and life is incredible and things have been taking backwards nosedives all over the place. LIFE IS GOOD!
it's interesting, because i made that forgiveness
image a while back, but i really feel like i was accepting everything that happened this past year, forgiving the universe and giving thanks for the state i was in post-everything. i don't think i have forgiven the accusers just yet... but i'm trying.
alright, i'm sorry, hahah i'm being way too open of a book right now! but... i mean, that's what art is about... and even if this isn't the purest representation of my feelings or skills it helped me move on, and that's what i want to share with you all today.materials: mechanical pencil, photoshop
critiques are more than welcome!
