vertigo

Wednesday night I came down with a fit of vertigo (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) if you’ve had it you know how disorienting and distressing it can be. I had it once before in 2006 or 2007, so at least I knew what I was in for. Friday was the worst, but by Saturday I could feel it subsiding. Saturday night I drew two pictures simultaneously. The thing with vertigo is that your eyes tell you one thing and your inner-ear balance systems tell you another thing, making your brain go back and forth between two competing realities.
While I was drawing I thought it would make sense to “double expose” the images when I was done. So the first image is a combination of both drawings, and the other two images are the drawings. johnotterart125BOTH.jpg
