This series was never planned! It started as just an experiment of this style of drawing out of curiosity. I sort of gradually found out that it was helping me as a remedy for my anxiety attacks.

Then, whenever I was having an attack again, I started to draw. I drew what I feared and what gave me relief. I drew myself helping me!

I saw this one as representing layers - sort of like one for each aspect that forms our anxiety.

Reminds me if the time I knew I’d drown if I nobody heard me calling.

I see a few things in this one. I see lots of cymbals - the worst sound in the drum kit and I want to thrash them all in an attempt to release all the tension I’ve got built up. The old cliche about feeling like a mushroom and everyone feeds one nothing but s@#t. A whole lot of barstools but still the one loner at the end of the bar trying to drown in one’s drink.

I love looking at a starry sky a long way out of the city where so many more can be seen. It gives me a sense of peacefulness that sometimes helps me find some inner calm to quell my anxiety.

this one is so fantasy-like, and reminds me a lot of a story I'm writing

this is me now. I used to be a people person but now I prefer to be alone or spend time with animals.

I see this as God reaching to help me in the mysterious ways He uses that I often don’t recognise until after the fact.

Though there are things that will always haunt me, I’m thankful that eventually I can somehow reach my little island of inner peace.

Here I sit trying to compartmentalise every different aspect with the hope that each on their own will be much less overwhelming. Maybe I’m trying to make life the big picture and split all the turmoil into little pictures that are seen less often perhaps in the way we walk through a gallery - only able to see or sense a limited amount ar any one time.

Yes, yes, it's like trying to get the air you need to breathe, not knowing if you will make it.

I truly honestly relate. I draw when I'm in an emotional state, and usually when my double depression kicks in, the drawings get extremely dark and creepy and sometimes scary

We do become attached to the things that hurt us and keep us oppressed. I think it’s because we live with them so long. The monster is less and less harmful though…or is it?
