Yes, yes. I dream of guns and daggers and knives at night. Sometimes, my art is the direct manifestation of these visions .
I’ve spent the last few weeks coming out of my own personal dark night of the soul. So, it was finally time to allow a bit of that darkness to revive the ferocity inside me. If you follow my work, then you’lI know that I’ve been working on recalibrating significant aspects of my life .
Ironically, as I feel myself shifting into a better mental and emotional space, I’ve also become increasingly scared to lose my edge - that wild, untamed side of my identity I used to rely on for survival .
Thankfully, I recently discovered that side of me isn’t dead... it was just dormant for a little while. As I evolve my paradigm of the world, I’m able to leverage it even more effectively these days. And of course, there’s no better place to direct this vicious energy than onto a blank canvas.
If I could somehow personify the lessons I’ve learned over last few months, she would be it. A modern day warrior, she is willing to go to war against the resistance of her own mind. She has the strength and fortitude not necessarily for external battles, but rather - the internal ones with her ego, and all the things that provoke shame and fear. She ferociously owns all her weaknesses and flaws, carefully weaponizing them so no one can use it against her. And she’s unfuckwithable because she fearlessly puts her soul on full display, everything from her vulnerabilities and insecurities to her fucking power .
You can’t hurt someone like this, and she is precisely the kind of badass I aspire to be.
