Resiliance by astraldreamer Resiliance by astraldreamer
I was trying to think of a way i could represent a way i feel about my fibromyalgia. I had this image of a face trying to lift her chin above a black swirl, trying not to be engulfed by it, trying to keep her spirits up.

This is what resulted.

Perhaps the patterns in the circles are a bit too pretty - but they do at least have lots of barbs in them ... lots of sharp bits that could stick into her.

Done in ink on paper, but I had to do a bit of fixing up in Photo shop as the blacks don't scan all that well (little reflections of white come out as white spots).

You can still see the influence of :iconjaewalker: Jaewalker here. I can't seem to get away from the circles at the moment.

I think what's great about your art involving Fibromyalgia, is that looking at it almost makes one proud to have or proud for having put up with it as opposed to feeling shame.

Great work!

I think I'm proud for the efforts I put forward to live as normal a life as possible. It still prevents me from working full time, and I'd be more than happy not to have to deal with it ... but yeah I congratulate myself every morning I manage to convince myself I really do have to get out of bed.
