No Hope by Emma Bagley

Is art cathartic for you?
Oh yeah. I zone out and meditate on my breath or whatever I’m listening to. Music is really important to my process. I’m always listening to something and sometimes it really shapes the piece that I am working on. My favorite band to listen to while I draw is Dawn Of Midi. I spend my time while I am at work and in the world tracing shapes with my eyes.  Nothing feels better than putting those shapes onto paper and embrace the possibilities of a blank canvas. I’m genuinely happy when I’m drawing.
