My first submission to IF is based on my overwhelming feelings of anxiety and depression at the time of creation. It is a digital, collage/assemblage piece created in Photoshop. It started with digital photographs I had taken and background images by nevermoregraphix and irisb477. The font used is Sketch Rockwell by ARTill.
My phone is buzzing, I don’t answer. The sound grates on my nerves. Bzz bzzz. Bzz bzzz. Missed call. Voicemail message. How many now? Three? Four? I don’t bother checking.
I should appreciate that I have people in my life who care about me. I do care, just not today.
I don’t want to hear their voices, “Where are you? Why haven’t you returned my call? Are you OK?”
I know I should be a better friend. There’s a lot that I should do. I should work on my portfolio. I should clean the house. I should take the dogs out. They haven’t had a walk in weeks. I don’t even want to leave the house. I’m tired. I slept all day, but I’m still so tired.
The phone is buzzing again. It’s my mum. She’s been calling all day. Why can’t I answer? Another missed call. Another voicemail message. I want to go back to bed.
Illustration Friday is a weekly illustration challenge. A topic is posted every Friday and then participants have all week to come up with their own interpretation.
