Finished this piece up 4 years ago today! It's still one of my favorites. This was back during a time where I might finish one or two pieces a year, and that's it. I was in a very weird place mentally, and my art struggled. After working with a great therapist I'm finally at a place where I can draw daily and it comes naturally and doesnt feel forced. I feel mental illness is a big struggle among creative individuals of all types. Don't be ashamed to ask for help, it can definitely change your life and help you achieve the things you've set your heart on. I've always wanted the mental freedom to just draw without restraints. Mental or otherwise. And I've finally found that freedom. Some days are easier than others, but when I look back at old pieces like this one and see how far I've come I can't help but feel pretty good about it. I never thought I could do it, but here I am. Don't ever give up.
