Fragments from my brain
My MS gives me even more reason to draw.
by Randy J. Huling
My name is Randy J. Huling, aka Random Ran. I’m an illustrator/artist/music maker based in Northern California. On Sept. 1, 2016, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. I had an MRI done to see why I was losing vision in my right eye. They found lesions all over my brain and then a week later, in my spine.
I have a severe case of demyelination of the nerves. To help me cope, I draw. I’ve always drawn, but getting diagnosed with MS gave me even more reason to draw.
Painting or drawing helps take my mind off my mind. When I can’t draw, I try to make music. I produced a song about my diagnosis with the help of my friend Overturned Big Rig to help me cope.
Randy J. Huling was diagnosed with MS in 2016.
