Balloon Head. An attempt to chronicle a mixed statePosted: October 18, 2013
Mental health cannot be reduced to a sentence or a picture. Having a shift in your mental health is like having a shift in your perception of everything in the universe. It is as if you are seeing colours that you do not have names for and that your brain struggles to process through a complete lack of reference. I seek to make sense of this by writing and by drawing. Not drawing the things I experience but trying to draw something that raises a similar emotion in the minds of the viewer. Not something that lets you see what I see but something that, for a millisecond, might let you feel a shadow of what I feel.
