‘You Done My Brain In’ – mixed media – torn laser prints, ink and brush and Parallel Pen, A3. This is my piece about depression and trying to cope in the lockdown. I did two ink drawings on the theme ‘Mindless’ https://www.instagram.com/p/B3HjcL1H3cD/r https://www.instagram.com/p/B3HkRpTHgMl/ nearly a year ago. This seemed a good way to update how I am feeling by making laser prints of these, ripping them up into a collage and adding blue ink in waves to show how lockdown, isolation and depression has affected me. The title is from a Bonzo Dog Band track! Because depression has indeed ‘done my brain in’ combined with this lockdown, especially also being asthmatic, another invisible disease that makes me high risk from the virus.
