This started as a phone doodle while I was chatting to my friend Taylor. By the time I’d finished he looked so happy I wanted to paint him.
It was kind of an automatic/semi-subconcious doodle and I remember looking at him when I finished the phone call and wondering how and why I had drawn something so damn happy when I was so pissed off. Guess I just forgot to be pissed off for a few minutes! (thanks Taylor) šŸ˜‰
I looked at moonhead and stopped for a while to think of the beautiful area I was living in (Mt Glorious, hence the mountain) and realized that in that moment, without all the everyday crap rolling around in my head, I was unbelievably happy. So I startedĀ taking those momentsĀ more often, and it got easier. Even when I only had a moment before throwing myself back into the shitstorm at least I knew that happy was hiding just under the surface.
