to all the people out there romanticizing the fuck out of mental illnesses and especially mentally ill artists: kindly fuck off.
it’s not romantic to be depressed and an artist.
depression (or other mental illnesses) doesn’t help creativity.
quite the contrary.
i usually draw two to three pieces a week on top of multiple sketches, even with my work for school.
my depression and some other not fun stuff have gotten way worse since december and guess what?
i didn’t create more.
i’m having trouble doing the simplest things on photoshop or on paper. some days i can’t even think of drawing without having a panic attack. i’ve been working on pieces for weeks, pieces that usually take me a day to complete.
the artistic part of my brain is literally buried under depression, anxiety, dissociation and morbid thoughts.
so fucking stop with this.
