Anger, frustration by akirakirai Anger, frustration by akirakirai
It controls
Can't hold it in
Throat is swollen, chest tightens
Can't let it pull me down
I refuse

It's not supposed to be beautiful, anger is not a beautiful thing.

edit (Sept 8 2012, 9:55pm PST): fixed to make her look more..believable angry.

Your art is therapeutic...oh my gosh, I'm not even kidding! This resonates so much, as does all of your other work. So raw, and captures emotion perfectly. Thank you so much for sharing your talent and pieces of work with us!! Heart

I absolutely love this, it really captures the essence of the feeling! I especially love how the spastic background melts into the foreground and looks like it's trying to take her over. Love it!

My friend ran into you at Aki Con, and I stalked your DA. xD

I am not sure what to say about this picture Akirakirai. The first thought that came to mind when i saw this picture was Suffering, and i asked myself why? I looked at your other drawings to perhaps answer my question. Distance, trapped. The Mirrors reflection. Another You perhaps. Was this creative thought, working its way, or perhaps something more? These black and white pictures. to me, show change.
I like this one, because at some point in everyone life we feel like this. And you have captured that feeling Perfectly.

Thank you, Akirakirai, for giving form to what was once was thought. I will be looking forward to your future drawings. Color is great to have in pictures, but for the struggle within. I think black and white does it well.
