Neverlasting Hope

I’ve been in an artistic slump for months; I have two series of images I need to complete but the creative juices are not flowing. Instead of trying to conform my art to the two options, I decided to just draw. This is the face of a character who has been with me since I was a teen. She has seen many transformations as my styles has improved and grown. She is the voice of my inner depression; how fitting we’d meet now, at an artistic low. Perhaps I need to revisit her a few more times before I find my voice again.

About DySwann

In my personal projects I work with concepts like numbness, bitterness, and/or depression; all states of being I know well. A goal is to raise awareness about the dangers of living in these places—and hopefully help others make better choices than I did. I always believe in hope, even when it seems there might not be any. If there is hope for me there is hope for others; and there is.
