I’m having a hard time reminding myself why I bother to keep going, I’ve suffered with depression most of my life, lost my job and my health went downhill, sitting here alone, after years of therapy and trying, I’m just feeling defeated.

I Drew A Picture Of Depression

I’ve always imagined my depression as a sort of creature that hangs around, and when it gets bad it’s trying to scoop me up. So I drew it.

Depression

This painting is meant to depict depression. The raging sea represents anger; and the dark skies and use of only blue and black, sadness. The lighthouse is barely visible in the darkness and there is no beacon, symbolizing the absence of hope and happiness.

#70 Move On

Move On

Everyone of us suffered, lost loved ones, got harmed, felt betrayed, had a depression… In the end we are all human and nothing builds us better than suffering. However, to enjoy life, one must let go of the past; he must move on.. he must sew the wounds in his heart.. for only that makes us stronger, and so we see life in a different aspect.. We will easily overcome…

Aneurysm

Things haven’t been going as planned in life and as I sit and dwell on them I only drag myself back into a hole of depression and continue to bury myself within the hole with more worry and more bullshit.

Inside

The best way to make art is not to create what people likes, or what people wants, or what people expect from you. The best way is to create whats inside your soul.

Bureau Worm

This is about this convulsing urge, this deep push, that hits you from behind, like a big hammer and knocks your motivation, your ability to move, think, talk completely uncontious. sometimes, this depression is born from the work itsself, sometimes it comes from behind, sometimes, it just waits and never really hits…

#99 Guilt

Guilt

January of 2011was an intensive month-long art class dedicated to a single goal -depicting my subjective experience of depression while appreciating that it’s not unique. I wanted to help explain the overwhelming experience to those that aren’t depressed, especially the friends and family of a patient.
