Yesterday was the 10th of October, what is known to many as World Mental Health Day. With this in mind I wanted to draw something different, dedicating it to the people who battle mental health on a daily basis. This artwork is for the warriors, the brave, those who push forwards, often putting others first.
I think we all know people who suffer, struggle or battle with internal demons. The world has evolved, we talk more, there is easier access to information and support. So our awareness and understanding of mental health has certainly changed.
It is crazy to think that mental health problems affect one in four people! Be it depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bipolar etc… Mental health comes in many different shapes and sizes, with varying ways to cope. Now I am no expert, but I know every mind is different, and there are different perspectives to consider. Stuff is also relative, I don’t know your mind, as you don’t know mine.
So… if this artwork got you thinking, or if you can relate to it, then please talk to someone. That is my advice for today. Listen and learn from others who have walked down a similar path, you are unique but not alone!

I guess I was thinking about “The Creation of Adam”, this is some famous artwork by Michelangelo, two hands almost touching. With COVID being front page…Read More
On Friday afternoon enough was enough, I’d had Snowdon on my to do list for too long, it was time! Sadly a combination of friend cancellations, bad weather and a UK lockdown resulted in a few trips being cancelled in 2019-2020. But… this weekend the forecast looked good and lockdown v2 had not happened yet….Read More
