I am an artist who works to give mental health awareness a voice as I portray various mental and social issues through little doodles of stickmen in an ongoing project called the Stickmen's Series.


Show Full Text

I spend a lot of time alone with my art and have gradually learned how to express my emotions through rough, hastily drawn doodles of stickmen.

I scribble down a stickman or two whenever I experience strong emotions, ideas, and/or thoughts, and it goes from there as I transform the tangles and knots in my head into tangible visuals. Nothing helps me help myself more than these little doodles do, and I am grateful to this day for deciding to put them to paper and give them life.

Art was once my only friend, and art is now my best friend. And now, I am ready to show my friend to the world.

Rain, rain, fall on me; help me grow into a tree. Beauty's often born from pain so let it rain, let it rain.

Creep

That moment when you close your eyes is when they start to creep and rise. When you try to wake, you'll find they don't just live inside your mind.

Slap on the smile and hold it tight. Don't let the tears fall into sight. For if they do, remember this: they'll all judge you for your weakness.
