Well it’s pretty hard for me to paint and draw happy things...Art helps me to express my emotions and prevents me a little from self harm.
The left is inspired from Junji Ito's Tomie and what is the other drawing inspired from? Great art also! I envy the artists on here... It makes me a little jealous that I don't have the skills to do it.

Yeah my painting looks similar to the one from Junji Ito but I never thought about that. The picture describes how I feel when I’m overthinking. I close my eyes, there are too many voices and bad memories in my head. It’s just a mess. I can’t think straight. I’m fading away and in the end I feel empty. I painted the 2nd picture when I was in psychiatry. It’s made out of red wool, structure paste and acrylic paint. I always have the feeling that everyone is watching me even when I’m alone. It’s like it would be a part of me. That’s why I wanted to create a flesh kind of look. I was inspired by the paintings of the swedish artist “Kim Jakobsson”. He’s a genius. Everyone can paint. Just try it. When I paint I don’t think about it too much. Just let your hands do the job. Listen to great music that will express your feelings. When I paint I mostly have the impulse that wants to break out like anger or fear. And the important thing is: Don’t compare your art with others even if it’s not that easy. It will take some time. Francisco de Goyas art and story is also really inspiring. He was criticised for his dark paintings because he was different and he saw what was really going wrong in the society.

The blood is from my upper limb.


Life Cried - "I'm Sick"
"Wrong, wrong, screaming, dreaming
This time I'm falling, bleeding"





Black Tongue - "Parting Soliloquy"
"And I hope to god the next passage on the waiting raft is mine
Please, don't leave me here
Between life and death and time
Please, don't leave me here"



I love Black Tongue so much, saw them live, one of my favorite band.

I'm not artistic at all. I can't draw a stick figure, and my pictures lack composition. I cook and I do crafts... or I used to. I'm great with a glue gun or a skillet... Please tell me this counts!
Beautiful work! I LOVE FOOD AND WHN PEOLPE LOVE MAKING IT THAT'S EVEN BETTER!!

some edginess from my vent journal, based on the song Suicidal Failure by Suicidal Tendencies.

Okay so of course, I wrote a big long thing and posted a bunch of pictures and it deleted them. My focus is atypically beautiful things[ugly], the things and make them ugly are the things that make them survive, also landscapes because they have a specialalso landscapes because they have a special relationship with yours relationship with the earth its the only good relationship I have left. Oh yeah and dead things I do things with dead things

I love them all, especially the tardigrade and that landscape in the end is pretty impressive.

I love the colours you used and the contrast with the reds and beiges and the beautiful blue in the eyes.
