I don’t have much of an explanation for this one except: thank goodness the semester is almost over. I have my last critique in about 55 minutes.

Please, Just Let Me Sleep Forever
By: Alyssa Trop
Please, Just Let Me Sleep Forever is a personal narrative following a sequence of surreal events that I’ve translated from my experience with depression. My attempt was to convey my intense feelings of emptiness as well as the desire to only sleep so that I could escape that emptiness. I used a hand-drawn animation technique for this piece that includes pencil, ink, and acrylic paint.

I can just picture it now, the beauty of the situation. Five years down the road, all of these high school classmates/Facebook friends will have their snotty little kids and the husbands they regretted marrying after a year of poorly constructed dates, and I’ll just be sitting here with Jake and all of our wonderful animals, laughing and laughing.
