After Anger“After Anger”

Lingering, bottled-up anger never reveals the ‘true colors’ of an individual. It, on the contrary,becomes all mixed up, rotten, confused, forms a highly combustible, chemical compound the explodes as something foreign, something very different than one’s natural self.” ― Criss Jami

Anger is a natural emotion. Of course, it can cause pain and stress to you and those around you. Sometimes it takes over our minds–either slowly building up because of an agitating inner dialogue or bursting forth like an unpredictable, massive volcano. This emotion can be so hazardous it could require therapy or anger management classes. Unresolved anger can cause an array of health issues such as heart attacks, insomnia, stroke, and high blood pressure. What can we do to lessen, or even eliminate, our extreme bouts of anger?

Artist’s Statement

I’ve been experimenting with iPad art programs like Brushes and SketchbookPro since I was 11, and trying to find ways to improve my digital art skills. I had a hard time understanding layering and manipulating techniques until I did a class project in 7th grade. In the class project, I had to work with multiple students on a music video, and we decided to use the app, Brushes 3, on my iPad. One of the students taught me multiple techniques on layers and how to use them to create more details. I took this and decided to test it on some of my own comic characters from my WIP fantasy book, “Whimsy”. I was using it for designs of the characters for the graphic novel version, and my digital art immediately started improving. I decided to apply it to my favorite animal: foxes. Throughout ‘the Kitsune series’, I manipulated the colors of the backgrounds on the foxes, and their shape and form. The first one I did, “Shintaro Fox” is a character from my first comic series I created at 9 years old. After doing this one, I realized what I could do with other fox drawings.

Kitsune in Japanese folklore are seen as sacred creatures who protect the land from “kimon”, or demon gates. They guard the demon gates to the northeast of Japan to ward off evil beings. They are messengers of Inari, the god of foxes and rice. They protect the god’s shrines and whoever works,lives near, or comes to the shrine for help. They are full of honor, but have minds and morals of their own. The significance of kitsune and their beauty and backstory inspired me to create the “Kitsune Series” as well….

Promise yourself…To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. -Christian D. Larson, “Your Forces and How to Use Them”

Occasionally, there are days where I feel exhausted, frustrated, and just plain upset about a situation. During those times I find it helpful to remind myself of our vast universe. If someone looks out from space, and observes our planet, signs of life forms can’t be seen. If you look closer, we all look like tiny specks, almost like little ant colonies.

I realize from this observation that we are all just tiny creatures with fluctuating emotions. I’m able to let go of that pointless argument, an extremely rude person at the grocery store or even the person who breaks an important promise. Despite these irritating situations, I’ve discovered we should just live, and move on. There is so much more out there. If we dwell on negative thoughts it only causes stress. This thought has helped me let go of anxiety and stress, because I realize we are such a small part of the universe…
