So Depression...

Is a funny thing with me and my art. It fuels most of my current work but it is also the reason I struggle to create that very art. I find in my darkest times art is what brings me out. Not often my own art but others. Seeing someone’s work in person or exploring a new website and even one very low period just coloring in a color book. I try to explore my feelings after the fact with my art. I am trying to reconcile with them. And it’s difficult because I can’t often understand why I felt so awful at the time and then at other times I empathize to the point, that I realize I am depressed again or still. The things my brain says to me during my lows are so illogical but yet sound so true in the moment I can’t argue with myself.
