Day 3 of #Recovery: Today, I removed the bandage from my neck... the scar doesn't look to good (in my opinion)... It kind of looks like what the pain feels like, actually it looks less painful than how it actually feels. I've been wondering how long it might take for me to fully recover, and at the same time, I've been reminding myself that I can't answer that question... It's all up to GOD. So, I'll just roll with the punches and pain, and maintain the faith. It'll all be over soon. Thank God.
Day 2 of #Recovery, still painful... However, I was able to sit down and actually draw a little. My wife bought me some colored pencils yesterday and a sketch book... I figure, why not get right to it. Since most of the pain now is in my neck, front and back, I wanted this piece to reflect what's going on inside of my body. Screws, Titanium, Pain. But all is love. Thank you for viewing.
Today I was discharged from the hospital. The surgery went fine. I'm currently in pain, but still plan to uphold my word to create art however my strength allows. They removed a small chip from one of my spine disc, cleaned it all up and reinforced it with a small titanium plate. I've had a lot of support through this. It outweighs the pain. So, here's my first installment, tomorrow, is #Recovery Day 2.
Here’s a project that I decided would be good for me to do during my recovery from an upcoming spinal surgery. I have been a freelance designer since I was a kid, and since then I have very rarely had time to do artwork for myself. I’m going to take the recovery time from my surgery (whether it be 2 weeks or 2 months) and design some sort of art piece everyday. This will be my way of translating my #recovery through design, photography, doodling, or whichever type of media I decide to do at the time. I hope you all enjoy.
