I always hesitate to post sad personal art because I never know how to handle the reaction I typically get from it... Like, I appreciate the concern and offers of help from people I don’t know... buuutttt (and this is probably just a personal thing) I tend to shy away from and kinda dread those comments. I’ve had a very hard few weeks mentally and my upcoming art will most likely reflect that, so I’m already bracing myself for the responses that make me uncomfortable (strangers DMing and asking if I want to talk, prodding to see what happened that made me upset, etc). I’d honestly much rather hear comments about the art itself, or, if it strikes a chord with you, how you’ve been affected by anxiety, depression, etc, or even just any advice you might have.
Right now, I’m fine, and I want to make it known that I don’t ever post personal sad stuff as a cry for help. Does that make sense? I’m proud of the art, and so I just want to share it. I hope that doesn’t come off as dismissive or rude, I really do appreciate the kindness, but I wanted to put that out there for anyone who frequents my dumb artwork
Hope y’all are doing ok 🌸 Today’s my first real day off in weeks and I’m gonna draw my feelings damnit
