WHAT WE GAIN FROM MADNESS ILLUSTRATIONS
Deeply intimate and painstakingly honest, What We Gain from Madness, was birthed from the personal yet universal themes that find us as we navigate through the mystery of life. It explores the madness of wonder, self-loathing, pain, wandering, discovery, becoming, and love. This collection displays what it feels like to know we will survive until the next moment, but we’re not sure we want to. But it validates that we all feel like this, and that living is much more glorious when we’ve experienced the broken.
This book serves as inspiration that we are all human, beneath surface-level differences. And that we all have busy minds and eyes that cry and hearts that love. What We Gain from Madness beautifully weaves through the adversity of simply living and welcomes the vulnerability and honesty that often remains unsaid. This book celebrates life in all its charm and wickedness, and above all else, the people that continue on.
I'm thrilled to help Emma bring her poetry to life with minimal art.
