I drew this about a month before school was over. I was in my bed, on a school day either crying or on the verge of crying. Summer felt so far away, and I was reflecting on things that had just happened to me, and how my whole 9th experience had been. I definitely “grew through” things, and out of things this year. 9th grade was a pretty hard year for me. This sketch has turned into a really popular design lately, as I’ve started to offer prints of it. I grew as an artist using what I was going through. I think it’s so cool how this quote, is actually true and happening my life right now. I am selling more art than I ever have, because I put my negative energy into something productive and something I was passionate about.
