Think Less Drow More 10th Anniversary
Think Less Drow More project is a personal and creative journey that I started on the 8th of April 2009.
I drew this picture ten years ago. It’s a drawing of myself as a frustrated pianist and it inspired my alter ego for Saiko Comics. Music was my first love but I never really felt good enough so I gave it up and turned to drawing.
In my early 20s, I was writing songs and making music to deal with my depression. At 25, I was drawing comics to get through my quarter life crisis. Today, 10 years later, I am drawing about different experiences, travel, family, friends, love, life – both mundane and extraordinary, and things that inspire me. Every once in a while, I still play the guitar and piano… I still love it.
I feel a strong sense of closure. This project has fulfilled its purpose and it’s time to move on. Drawing has taught me to think less and just live – that’s all I ever wanted, really. To be free to do the things I love and to share it with the people in my life. It hasn’t been easy getting here, everyday is still a challenge. I’m still the same person but I’m learning to be kinder to myself.
I don’t draw to be the best artist. I draw to become a better person. After drawing my life for the past ten years, my greatest achievement is that I am no longer afraid to live.
