I liked the theme of disconnection. I wanted to show how in the modern world we are disconnecting ourselves from human contact with others, our dreams, traditions, childhood wonder, how we present ourselves to society at large, the belief of relationships and soulmates, and eventually, ourselves. But we still have the ability to disconnect from the path we are on and run toward our true selves. I wanted all the drawings to be in graphite and the use of color strings to emphasize the disconnection. This experience for me was a way to break a habit of hoarding my art. By knowing it had to go out in the world for other people to see, it helps me overcome my fear of rejection of my art as a whole. Art is my passion and I love every aspect of creating art, from the idea to the inception, from the feel of the pencil on paper to finally sitting back and seeing what I've done. It's that "Holy shit! Did I draw that?" moment that I live for. My passions and interests are reflected more in my color drawings and paintings, but I feel the lack of color in the sketchbook adds to the feeling of disconnection.
