In the lower right hand corner, Brandon has written, “It’s too late”…This drawing was hanging on the wall of his apartment along with other drawings and was confiscated by the police as his “suicide note.” Maybe…maybe not. His death came in the middle of an argument with his wife. He wasn’t in a dark room somewhere contemplating his death but I do know that at times when he was younger he did. He was a writer and an artist always compelled to do both every single day. He was dedicated and driven.
I guess as a mom who is grieving the only comfort I find in this drawing is that it is a picture of hope. Can you find the hope I am talking about?
