Contemplating A Darkness

Something deliciously evil just came over this guy's mind and we are witnessing the beginning of the smile of awareness, as well as the subtle shadow that is growing from the right side of his face. He is looking right at you with a secret knowing. What did you ask him to get this look? … Continue reading Contemplating A Darkness

Unspeakable Fear

There's a darkness inside of me these days that is only hurting myself and I wonder what it means to do. It terrifies me. I'm starting to see it over my right shoulder. What can I do? When looking at this face I have to wonder if this story of fear isn't a cover story … Continue reading Unspeakable Fear

Do You See Me?

There's a sadness that's deep inside people who feel unremarkable and un-noticed. I've felt this most of my life and work hard at changing that mindset-habit. I've been lucky enough to meet many outstanding and talented people who also feel this way and I am constantly amazed that they see themselves this way. We have … Continue reading Do You See Me?

The Happier Karamazov

The title is wholly sarcastic. The Brother's Karamazov, while a debatable excellent book, was not the happiest tome every written. The main characters may have had moments of joy, but overall this was a cold and dismal life. Ok, so this is my impression and it is a remembered impression from over 25 years ago. … Continue reading The Happier Karamazov

Oh My, The Happiness…

The simplest drawings sometimes release the purest feelings. I'd been drawing for a while where this one came out and I was in a moment of bliss. The only conscious decision was the basic shape of the face. I then let my m kind choose the mouth and the rest flowed to a happier face. … Continue reading Oh My, The Happiness…

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
