This drawing is part of my first attempt at a visual poem all made by myself. The brain-shaped crown expresses how my mind is always going on about death and how I try to fight it and fill it with beauty. My lockdown experience started not very badly because as an agoraphobe and a freelancer I am mostly used to work from home. however, it also made me think about this feeling of being trapped in claustrophobia because at this point I really wasn’t free to leave the house. In the end, what I am feeling the most is my depression settling in and that’s what created the need to express these feelings on my own. Drawing resulted in kind of a survival tool.
