The human brain is an organ of the body that I'm highly fascinated with.
Again, if you've looked at my other anatomy drawings, you'll have picked up on that I did a series of studies, looking and observing the body in order to understand human anatomy and physiology more.
I work with people in recovery from addiction and overdose, and this study of the brain (which can easily be found in anatomy textbooks and online searches) was a way to explore my understanding and expand my knowledge of the human nervous system.
I identify as someone who has had a dynamic relationship with my brain. I have had a, for lack of a better word, roller coaster ride with my brain. I consider my brain to be my best friend, and I find it to be a very powerful instrument for my soul to interact with the physical and other worldly realms.
The brain has been and I know will continue to be a strong source of inspiration as I continue to work with people in recovery, and also work around my own behavior and energy levels.
The use of color pencil was a blast in conveying this brain illustration because of all the shading in the grey matter, which, in in this image, became colorful.
