I used a fountain pen to illustrate this. I feel an intense amount of pain and e anxiety in my day to day life, but I use my art to find a way to let that out. This drawing is about art as coping.

I’ve never drawn with fountain pen, that sounds like a nice medium to try out! Incredibly well done, it portrays a lot of emotion, and it’s good for people to know they’re not alone. Thank you for making this.

i love these hands! i love that knife!! most people can only draw one kind of knife (cough cough undertale fanart cough cough) so the fact that you drew a different sort makes the fact that this is a knife instead of a knife in a drawing like 20x more prevelant (if that makes any sense lol) awawawawa ur art is so pretty

This piece is beautiful, It really portrays what message you're trying to give to your viewers
(To everyone who reads this I'd like to send out this message to those who are struggling)..

Your skin isn't PAPER so don't CUT IT
Your face isn't a MASK so don't HIDE IT
Your size isn't a BOOK so don't JUDGE IT
Your life isn't a MOVIE so don't END IT
