The Gift of Understanding by BattyeChan
The Gift of Understanding
Contest entry for the Give the gift of Art competition

Tools used: Pencil, Liner pens, Sai, Photoshop and Wacom Bamboo Tablet

When I first started mapping out ideas for this contest, I was thinking of giving something materialistic to someone I love. I thought of many people; my mum, my nan, my four sisters. The person I decided to draw this for was my partner, Joe.

I met him when I was 16, my first partner and still is now at 21 years of age. When I first met him I was giddy, after a year I was depressed. We were always butting heads. I didn't want to throw it away, I wanted to work hard for someone I love. He had lovely qualities; caring, funny, loyal. His attention to detail was admirable. However he was also inconsiderate, hot-headed and simply didn't care....or so I thought.

As I got closer to his mother, she revealed to me that Joe had a form of Asperger syndrome, a type of Autism. I found out that this was most of the reason he found it hard to communicate with me on a deeper level. Socializing or trying to get a conversation out of him was tiring and sometimes upsetting. The way he spoke to his loved ones was confusing...until now. This is why he would do things that would hurt me, without even realizing it. I confronted him about it, and after that, things didn't magically turn into rainbows and lollipops, we had just moved past another stepping stone in our relationship and I was able to understand him.

Joe was always a target for people who didn't understand, and many people would automatically assume he was weak or an unpleasant person, when actually it was the opposite and now he has me to support him.
The next few years had been a roller coaster of emotions, not only as a couple but Joe as an individual had improved with his communication and people skills, and even though the changes may not be great, I am SO proud of him.

If I could give a gift of anything to someone special, I would give the gift of understanding to Joe. Understanding how people think and feel the way they do, and the social and environmental indicators that implicate why.

Thank you for reading, I have provided a link about Asperger Syndrome below.
