Craving for Drama - I have drama for tortured and suffering, while manifesting this trait as rebelliousness.
OCD - I created 50 rows of 50 pinpricks on top of this drawing while counting each one. During my creative process, I have problems letting go of perfectionism, which can sometimes interfere with experimentation and discovering side projects. Conversely, I sometimes use this trait when the art piece involves repetitive actions or multiple objects.
Anger and Rage - I created this drawing by roughly scraping paint straight from the tube. I then crumbled it up and used the drawing as a stress ball.
Sheer Energy - Late at night, as I settle down to sleep, I will suddenly get a vivid creative vision that I then must sketch or make notes. Although I cherish the trait of imagination and creative energy, it can feel like getting caught in a whirlwind. In my studio, I will sometimes experience this as a tornado of spinning energy, thus the tangled and spiraling thread on the drawing.
