don't look back

Thinking of starting a sketchbook series of hand drawn inspirational quotes. Here's the first entry.

Process work for my monster project; depicting mental health issues as beasts or monsters. This one is for schizophrenia. This monster is based on crows, spiders and snakes. The heads are based on crow skulls. Crows are very intelligent, and talk to each other and gossip. The crow skulls are symbolizing the voices one hears when suffering from psychosis. The spider eyes all over the skulls represent paranoia, or the fear of being watched or under surveillance. Still mulling over this visualization of schizophrenia, thinking it might look a little too "nice" for this mental disorder.
