I was suddenly inspired to experiment with color and Pop Art. You could say that in this phase of my artist career, I am exploring my inner Andy Warhol.
This piece was done in the middle of my moving from Chicago to San Diego. It turned out to be a month and a half ordeal, with a great amount of time spent in Colorado with my family. Though the move was exciting, it was incredibly stressful physically and emotionally. So much change was happening in such a short amount of time, and ultimately I was taking a leap of faith moving to a city across the country with no job and no apartment lined up.
This piece reflects the four mental states I was cycled through for a month a half.
Panel 1: Excitement at the idea of having more creative opportunities.
Panel 2: My anxiety and nervousness about moving in with a partner. Going from a long distance relationship to moving in together.
Panel 3: Feeling myself grow and evolve into the next version of myself. An oppertunity to reinvent, reconnect, and mature.
Panel 4: The crippling self-doubt that this move is a total mistake and everything I have worked towards is going to come crashing down. Fear of failure and the unknown.
(Update: the move was very successful and I am beyond happy with the outcome!)
