They Are Still Heavy
8” x 10” archival print on Moab Lasal Matte paper. Even when the monsters are asleep, they are still heavy.
I made this drawing thinking about how sometimes my anxiety and my depression are more dormant than other times. But they’re always there. You know? I can be picking flowers and be in utter awe that such beautiful things exist in this world, and still know there is a heavy weight on my back. Sometimes I wonder if the weight is making me stronger and more appreciative of those simple, beautiful moments; sometimes I wonder if it’s just making those moments harder to see. None of it is linear and it changes all the time. The weight is heavy.
