Everything Has Become a Little Too Serious Here

Everything has become a little too serious here in my head, in fact my whole life has about as much vigor as a car insurance advert, and as much scope for something more than this as my drawings portray. A 25 year old in 2009 isn’t likely to have the jollity of a 22 year in the boom days of 2006, but still, this is pure cardboard. I was sat behind an old man on the bus, who was bitter and angry at everything and everyone. My god, I  thought, I cannot let myself become him – what a nasty old man, he could have played Hitler if he was but a little younger and leaner. But at that moment I saw in myself how such bitterness to life emerges (it creeps up without warning).
Anyway another serious storyboard…

About John Ledger

A visual Artist, eternal meanderer and obsessive self-reflector by nature, who can’t help but try to interpret everything from within the tide of society. His works predominantly take the form of large scale ballpoint pen landscape drawings and map-making as social/psychological note-making. They are slowly-accumulating responses to crises inflicted upon the self in the perplexing, fearful, empty, and often personality-erasing human world.
