Volume 1 | Drama
Art gave me the power to hit back. These figures began appearing in my head, so I flushed them out onto an empty paper. They spoke to me, taught me a lot about who I am as a person and artist. Art is a process of problem solving in itself, so I think of it as a metaphor for how one handles the larger scale struggles of their day to day life.
Through my drawing I was able to translate these raw emotional responses to aspects of my life I didn't know how to deal with into visual representations of coping. Through my art I was able to come face to face with my demons, who actually turned out to be my angels.
