Bit behind in posting about an exciting new project that I am working on.
I have spent a lot of time since I lost my best friend to mental illness trying to build a life on purpose or one that has meaning. One that can help people like himself realise the amazing person they are and the incredible talent and light they have inside of them. It is a hard world we live in even when your brain is on right and you don't have the battles with your own thoughts to contend with every day.
I have already been speaking with Batyr, an amazing company that helps young adults realise it is ok to seek help and its ok to fess up to not feeling 100%. That the best thing you can do is seek help, have the conversation and find out whether you need help or not. I share my own experience with mental illness with uni students and senior school students. To help give hope and to give a voice to the elephant in the room.
MonsterMondays is a creative initiative of sharing an artwork every Monday of a Monster and the insights gained from drawing this Monster. Which is really a meditation into my own Monsters.
I will share more over the coming days. For now check out the two videos below for the launch of MonsterMondays and be sure to check my instagram @ptelling for all the launch images and fun that will be coming from Halloween!
