This is the first time I’ve tried to do any art since my grandpa died last month. It’s pure happenstance that it came together; the whole process was aimless and I kept realizing that I was doing exactly the opposite of what I meant to accomplish on the canvas.
This is what I did with the fugly crap I posted last week.
For anyone new: Last week’s post was a set of reddish-brown /black images with some splatter and grunge on them. They weren’t all that remarkable. I worked with them a little and got some designs that totally reflect my style and helped me process what was going on with me emotionally.
I never tell people to “look for lessons” in their pain, but I can say without a doubt that if you walk through it, your own refusal to give up will bring transformation.
So, I lost my mind last weekend. Broke down crying (No reason. All the reasons.) Couldn’t get my shit together all day. Kept crying, screaming, what-have you.
These are some process-art I did while trying to get through that.
I suppose most of my friends would recommend written journaling but it doesn’t work for me in those situations and just causes more exhaustion/emotional distress rather than any kind of cathartic “healing” event like people say.
I’ll show you what I did with these in the next couple of weeks.
I’ve said before that my “art journaling” is more like a digital sketchbook charting the progress of things than what most people think of, which to me is “collaging” and doesn’t give me any sense of emotion.
