Unlike before, people now are starting to accept depression as a serious mental health issue. This is perhaps due to the growing number of suicides, with the latest victim being Linkin Park’s vocalist Chester Bennington. Interestingly, an artist who also struggles with said issue found a way to use it to her advantage. Or at least, it is where she gets ideas for her art.
Alice De Ste Croix, or better known as DestinyBlue, is an artist on DeviantArt and she has been posting her work on the platform since 2004. She is widely known for creating vivid and thought-provoking illustrations.
The interesting thing she does with her art is the way she injects emotional stories. Known as “Blue” by her fans, the self-taught artist crafts her masterpieces using Photoshop CS6. Take a dive into DestinyBlue’s imaginations and feel the loneliness she is trying to convey.
