Artist's Description

This is Monster #3 in my Monster Mondays series.

Monster Mondays is an initiative I started after losing my best friend to suicide. He fought the monsters of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Bi-Polar and Depression. Mental illnesses that are very hard to treat and hard to talk about due to the stigma around Mental Health and Ill Mental Health or Mental Health Disorders.

After dealing with my mates suicide with grief counselling I came to realise I was battling my own Monsters and decided I needed to do something about it and about the stigma.

I started speaking for Batyr an organisation that helps teach kids that it is ok to not be ok and you can seek help. This only made me keen to do more and hence the Monster Mondays were born.

Each week a new monster is released with an insight for managing your own mental health, some cool videos too of the creation of the artwork.

The Monsters are one way that I manage my own mental health through creativity and self expression. Getting the emotion out so that I can think clearer and do things other than sitting in the emotion and going to bed!

So this is the third monster Week 3 a monster Ryan the Rhino, Is obviously based on Rhino but made more monster like by his squashed and warped face and big teeth and too many horns. I particularly like his deep set eyes that show that there is so much emotion behind there. Like many people struggling with mental health, he is fighting so many things in his head you just can’t see them. So please treat him well!

I hope you like the images I should also mention that 10% of all sales will go to raise money for Batyr so they can run more programs and get kids asking for help so they realise that there is hope that you can get through the bad times and become what you want to even though you may need to manage the monster along the way!
