It’s probably just PMS

It's probably just PMS art print by HIYA CREATIVE.

Sometimes, inspiration for art comes from situations that don’t seem that ‘inspiring’.

You know that feeling when the world suddenly gets dark and anxiety-inducing, and you can’t get a handle on why you’re feeling so bad. Your partner keeps tiptoeing around you asking if they’ve done something wrong and neither of you knows what’s happening… until you realise IT’S PROBABLY JUST PMS. Every. Damn. Time.

Every month it takes me by surprise which is perplexing, and one of those days gave me a spark of inspiration to create a piece of art as a reminder.

And afterwards, a whole series of similar situations came through. A strange place for inspiration but I’ll take it.

What’s the weirdest thing that has sparked inspiration in you?
