Every Day is Halloween: Doodles from My Goth Days
Fall is here, my favorite time of year. Lately, I have been reminiscing about my adolescence, who I was back then, and what I learned from those experiences. I saved some of my doodles between the ages of 17 and 18. The bulk of the images were primarily drawn during class. Many of these doodles were also made during my year in public school (I attended Catholic high school). It was a troubling period in my life, filled with intense love, heartbreak, confusion, and angst.
Gothic: Gothicism, 1990. The poem excerpt that is cut off is by Oscar Wilde. It reads: “And the wild regrets and the bloody sweats, none knew so well as I, for he who lives more lives than one, more deaths than one must die.”
