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

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
