Hey,

I'M MARYAM MEHDI

Digital artist and Network Engineer

I am from Hillah and I love creating concept art and designing characters. I studied Information Technology at Babylon University so I can also code and do networking engineering and installation. 

In this art, I wanted to reflect the calm that is experienced after war. Whether mentally or physically, you always need to be armed for war. The small fish represents a responsibility we have; something that you need to protect and keep alive no matter what.

This is my first published digital artwork. Once I finished my training, I decided that this work was worthy to be seen by others. I drew it all in black and white and only coloured one section where I wanted to catch the viewer’s eyes. His eyes and the expression are all of a silent man with a lot of words in his head.

I usually represent the feeling of sadness with a calm, expressionless face. People who are depressed or sad know very well that words are useless to describe their pain. So talking about it is pointless and looking sad or crying will only make others ask you questions that you cannot answer. This artwork was featured on MrSuicideSheep’s YouTube Channel for the song “When You Need Me” by Silent Child.

This is one of my favourite art pieces that I have ever made. If you focus, you’ll notice a man standing next to a grave. The loss of a loved one is the hardest pain anyone can go through. It is difficult to express this pain. The stars have always been my personal representation of death. This artwork was featured on MrSuicideSheep’s YouTube Channel for a song named “Depressed, Stressed, but F**k it, i’m Blessed” by joegarratt. 

The girl in this image is frances-Bean Cobain. This artwork was featured on MrSuicideSheep’s Youtube Channel for a song named “Killer” by Valerie Broussard. 

I wanted to represent a mixture of a bad reality, yet holding on to a piece of your childhood or ‘innocent self’. This is represented by the teddy bear. The artwork was featured in MrSuicideSheep’s YouTube Channel for the song “The Money” by NICOLOSI.
