About the Artwork:
“We’ve all fallen victim to being trapped in the proverbial “funk.” Sometimes the funk gets so bad and stays with you for so long that it feels like you were born with it. This has been me for the past year or so, with the new pressures of fatherhood, a fairly demanding day job, and just the general state of the world, I’ve had many days where I’ve woken up just thinking, “What’s even the point.” Luckily, I’ve been trying to work on myself lately by joining a gym, eating better, and just trying to gain a little bit of my identity back. All of which has been slowly helping pull me back into reality. I’m hopeful that within time, I’ll be back to my normal self with an added sense of insight.” – The Chung!!
