Dark Passengers by DestinyBlue Dark Passengers by DestinyBlue
We carry them with us, wherever we go, invisible to others, ever present to ourselves. They are our Dark Passengers. Our troubles, our fears, our anxietys. You don't know who travels with them unless they wish to tell you.

They manifest when we go though tough times and weigh heavy on our shoulders. But it's not hopeless; we can harness them.
As we get through the hard times and come out the other side, our dark passengers turn to light. Our light passengers stay with us to give us hope that there is sun after rain, they give us knowledge that things will get better and appreciation of what we have.
This image represents the transformation of the girls dark passengers, while they're not completely light yet, there is a strange beauty about there transformation. She is getting better and holding onto hope.

I explored a similar concept in my piece. You become stronger rather than weaker by getting through tough things.
I am pleased to have many light passengers now, but this is only because I have had the dark. Drawing helps me transform mine, and all the support I get when I post art here is wonderfully uplifting. I always enjoy realising concept like this :D

I haven't seen Dexter, but he calls his inner darkness and urge to kill as his 'dark passenger' as well :)

And this has to be "my" art:P From the August... it's weird how it somehow all fits, but guess it's just that kind of coincidence that works for everybody more or less. Anyhow :P everything you say and write is inspiring
