Have you ever had so many tasks or pieces of work to do that it just freezes you? When you have one thing on your plate, your mind is able to rationalize it and complete it. However, when you have multiple things on the go, you can become overwhelmed and not no where to begin. When this happens, for many of us, nothing gets accomplished as we fall under the pressure of what seems like a daunting pile of never ending work. I just got nervous thinking about it 🙂
This week’s submission for ‘Roller Coaster Moods Trapped In Cartoons’ by Felicity Tse is called ‘At The Root’ and here’s her artists statement. Enjoy!
“When you fix/gain control of one aspect of your life, something else always seems to pop up that needs maintenance. When you look at the drawing from the top – down: Its easy for little things to go unnoticed, but once they pile up it makes us not want to tackle anything at all. It’s hard to see the end results until we actually get to that point (and there are no easy ways down). When you look at the drawing from the bottom up: its easy to take things at face value, but people are multifaceted like a house with many floors – the first floor is always the best-kept and most welcoming, but as you go deeper, things aren’t as they seem and never as straightforward.”
We hope that for all you mental health warriors out there are inspired by Felicity’s work and if you want to contribute to our site in the future, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
