Lock down 2020

I’m sure everyone is in the same boat to some degree, it’s been a strange time for all of us.

All the talk of mental health has been inspiring and also heartbreaking to read. I can only imagine what people are going through.

Recently I’ve been wanting to do some more artwork that carries a message with it or at least has more of a solid concept. So the artwork in this post is exactly that.

I didn’t want to jump on any mental health band wagon, in reality I’ve suffered with mental health issues since my early teens. I’ve found coping mechanisms that keep my head level but in the last 15 years I’ve had two episodes which have left my thought processes paralysed.

I’m lucky, I have a great family around me and very supportive friends and work colleagues but some people don’t.

This is the first image in response to the topic but I plan to do few more, I’m also busy planning some other works with topics I’d like to tackle. As for the concept behind it, I feel like it’s layered the feeling of discomfort is clear in the expression but I’d like to leave the rest up to everyone else to interpret.

Stay safe
