I created this short  narrative a couple months ago, but I finally feel ready to share it with you. Despite its length, making this was a laborious process and took me quite some time to put together.

(media: charcoal, graphite and digital)

This story is personal to me, but you can interpret it whatever way you please. 

 Bernadette the Brave

Bernadette gets lost and scared in a crowd when life is too much. She imagines that the swarms of people around are a forest of trees to cope.

As she walks through the imagined trees, she sees they all have unique faces like the people in the crowd.

Bernadette comes across one in particular with a doorknob. It beacons to her with a golden light. She opens the face and climbs inside.

There she finds a golden world. 

This world is wonderous, as if it was made just for Bernadette. It is a place of serenity, safety curiosity, and beauty. 

However, back in the forest of faces, danger awaits. Another has found his way into Bernadette’s mind. The danger wields an axe and finds the tree with the golden world. 

As he takes his axe to Bernadette’s tree, everything within her world splits, including her body. But from her body comes the source of the golden light. Bernadette holds the power to fight back.

This is your world. You may be small, and It’s okay to be afraid.  But know that when fear is crippling and invades your heart, you hold the ultimate power to fight back and conquer.

Red? I think it’s red. 

I basically did this once and it’s how I got pink eye.

I can’t tell if you’re making a pun or if you’re telling an actual story.

Either way, I’m still laughing.
