Monomania began from small photograph-like paper that i found laying around the library. it was done over the summer of 2016 and it was during a very simple and humble time of my life. I was surviving with very little monetary support, yet i began to be struck by the simplicity and life of small things. Snails, pebbles, raindrops, pennies, tears, all these things rushed themselves unto these small pieces of paper and immediately i found myself exploring many themes, it became a gateway to explore an urgent emotion in a very short amount of time. During the progression of each pieces i became much more Grateful. Focusing on such a small scale gave me the ability to concentrate on what truly matters when composing a drawing, eventually that same ability would transfer onto my external life, it allowed me to become ever so present in the now, dealing with only what truly matters. I am pleased to share this very humble set of drawings with you all, i hope that they serve you as a reminder that life isn't all that serious. Play and celebrate all the small and big things in life.
The only thing you ever have is now.
