Flux: Flow of Energy

An illustration for The Menteur magazine on the topic of ‘Flux’

“Flux: To be in a state of continuous change (mental)”

With this illustration I’m representing the continuous state of flux we all find ourselves in emotionally: moving between states which we might define as “strong” or “weak”, “confident” or “anxious”, “competent” and “incompetent”, and so on. The point I am trying to illustrate is that actually none of these states are fixed, as we might perceive them to be, and therefore neither is our sense of self. We can fluctuate between different emotional states, flowing between them, and sometimes existing in what might feel like two contradicting states in the same moment
