STILL YOUNG ON THE INSIDE

Today, while doing some sketches, I looked in the mirror to see what face stared back. Then I let my subconscious take over the drawing. The inner vision goes with my fresh haircut, but my outside feels a little old and tired. Maybe all my self-portraits will reveal some of the true me, as I … Continue reading STILL YOUNG ON THE INSIDE

Oh, I’m Not Sure About That

This feels like the face of uncertainty. It could be that person who always seems so certain that whatever you are saying isn't completely true and suddenly fills you with the most frustrating doubts. Not my favourite person the the crowd. This might be why I feel like punching this guy right in his bothersome … Continue reading Oh, I’m Not Sure About That

IT’S ALL GOING TO CHANGE NOW

I let my subconscious draw this one and it feels very much like how I feel about a family crisis I'm going through. Whatever comes next, it will be different. All life is like this, but some situations seem to impact this realization stronger than others. See more at Arts M.Perron: http://www.1-mario-perron.pixels.com

Distorted Happiness

I noticed that in many of my drawings, the face appears to be smiling, however it feels like a forced smile. As a reaction, I chose to make this face more grotesque to match the true feelings behind the forced smile. This isn't a face of bliss, but rather a face of hidden pain. This … Continue reading Distorted Happiness

Looking Down On Oneself

Another self-portrait? Not entirely. The figure is decidedly choosing the perspective from which it is looking at itself. Removed and from above, it can safely criticize itself and feel simultaneously better than the subject and worst about themselves. it begs the answer to the question "are we ourselves?" This odd figure, with its Ichabod Crane … Continue reading Looking Down On Oneself

Self-Distortion

I'm lead to believe from all the books I'ver read on self-improvement, that most of us really don't see ourselves as we truly are. This self-distortion emanated from us, and influences how others see us, thus authenticating our self-perception while further concretizing a corrupted self-perception. It's a vicious circle that always starts from within us, … Continue reading Self-Distortion

Thoroughly Unimpressed

At first it was a copy of thickly painted oil painting, and I was getting frustrated at the great details in the original. So, I decided to let go and just doodle it. What came from it was a simple, even silly expression on the new face, that I am not sure was intended on … Continue reading Thoroughly Unimpressed

Rough Selfie In Anger

Dark moods are occasionally hard to control and I've been swimming in one hell of a dark mood lately. Talking about it isn't giving the relief. Working out isn't either. Writing helps momentarily. I just feel really heavy in my heart and feel angry about not getting out of this mood. This doodle feels close … Continue reading Rough Selfie In Anger

The 10th Step on The Ladder of Awareness

Highlights from the previous week:  Last week we dove into the imagualization process and found a focal point from which my truth can be accessed. I use that point in meditations now. It connects me to the universe. Here are a few of the things we learned during the process. Hope is a shared concept … Continue reading The 10th Step on The Ladder of Awareness
