When I was little I never knew what to say. So, I drew. Since I was very, very small I’ve kept a small sketchbook with me. I take it with me everywhere. I draw the world, and sometimes I collage pieces of things. It’s never been for anyone else, my sketchbook. It’s just how I survive in a world that simple isn’t designed for me, an Autistic person. Because drawing is transformative. It’s meditative. This is a visual essay of what I experience when I hyperfocus on art, something only people like me can do. Drawing is the purest projection of my own soul.
