This piece is very near and dear to my heart. I drew it for a very good friend who has always been there for me. She's the kind of friend that we don't talk every day, or even every week, once it was years...but when that text pops up it's like no time lapsed at all. This Demon is within all of us. He's goodly scary, maliciously kind and harmfully supportive. I had no real vision in mind as I started to draw. It was automatic, and if you believe in Automatic Writing, then you may believe that The Devil herself guided my hand. I don't believe in any of that nonsense. Satan is a Christian concept and they can have it. My religion teaches no hate, preaches no recompense and fosters no fear. I have always been drawn to the macabre and horrific. Perhaps I too "am strange and unusual." Look closely at this guy's essence. He is bold in appearance yet awkward in application. He can't open a door without scratching the knob. But does he intend this destruction or is he simply unloved and therefore ungroomed to navigate his way? My friend and I dissected our feelings with such filters. I drew this to remind her keep the course. We're all delicious and sour. Everything is medicine and poison, the difference is dosage.
There are multiple mental-health benefits to journaling. I write daily. That's why I developed a line of dot-grid journals with covers featuring my original art. I modeled the manuscript after my format of choice. The journals are available in hardcover and paperback exclusively at Amazon! My goal with this series of books is to help you find yourself through self-exploration and documentation of thought. Record and recognize your patterns. Your greatest investment is in yourself.
