Non-photo blue pencil gone over with a 3H graphite pencil before inking and lettering.
My cancer team suggested they find someone for me to speak with someone about the trauma of cancer impacting my brain. It wasn't a diagnosis but my oncologist's assistant spent some time with me and used acronym PTSD as a possibility.
From our conversation, I learned that mental health (anxiety, trauma) in relation to cancer is something medical professionals do not know a lot about (yet). There is still much to research and learn...so, whatever is going on with my mental fatigue, strain, forgetfulness, clog, mood swings, avoidance behaviors, etc. is impacting my day to day. I share this because there is the direct dealing with the cancer (cutting it out, immunotherapy/medication, etc.) and there is also the addressing the difficulty our brains experience in processing and recovering from from terrifying intense emotional and physical experiences.
I am hoping to have this inked and posted sometime over the weekend so I can continue forward with the next sketches....
