About the Despair Series

Artist Profile

Michael Townsend is a West Coast writer. Despair is one vignette from his Stickman series - simple figures illustrating a story or parable.

Artist Statement

Our lives reflect the eternal truths of the earth, of the stars, each day in what we do and what we think. My work tries to discovery and distill these truths. I usually focus on common, ordinary activities we all do and reproduce them in stylized multi-media prose pieces.

I started the Stickman vignettes by doodling figures to act out an imaginary dialogue I was having with myself on morning. I like the stickman. They add another expression dimension to concepts I am articulating.
