My older brother got me this sketchbook. I didn't realize it at first, but this book was something that I needed. It tells an internalized narrative and delves into how I've felt about myself and my place in the universe. I've spent my entire life so far trying to figure out who I am, who I'm supposed to be, where I'm supposed to be going. It's taken a while for me to understand what any of that means.
The concept of being an artist is where I've felt most at home, ever since I learned what the word "artist" means. I've taken the things I've loved, wondered, considered, hoped for and wanted throughout my existence and implemented them in as much of my art as I can. I take my love for the universe and place it in my work with care. I've been obsessed with the things we can't see or touch or reach, like skulls and bones and outer space; there's something incredibly poetic about interstellar things and unseen parts of ourselves.
I'm exceptionally grateful for the opportunity that came with this sketchbook. I hope that people look through it and see me as someone who cares a lot the universe and dreams of leaping into the unknown.
