The Mind is Time, The Mind is Space


Completing this self portrait put me on another level technically as well as personally..
This piece means so much to me that I have it displayed on my bedroom wall where I can see it every morning.
I felt trapped, crazy, and insane when creating this. I dont know if its a normal adolescent thing, but I honestly belived that I was out of my mind, Hence the Screaming.
I'm a relatively quiet individual; interpretting lessons of life during lunch breaks and class hours.
Around this time I was consistanly reading on Nibiru(Planet X) which is supposedly a planet that will orbit into our solar system in 2012 and cause armaggeddon. "Why does this has to happen??. Everything that I've pursued or dreampt doesnt matter. I wish there were a way to stop this", hence the Straightjacket and Planets.
If you can see, There is an akwardly placed planet right above Earth; which I am staring directly at. This is 'Planet X'.
I also have my astrological sign 'Scorpio' patterned behind me.
As you can see, it's very dear to me..
