10th Jan 18′ – Sorry I’ve Been Quiet!


Mood : Good, productive and thinking clear.

Apologies, I have missed a couple of daily entries. I don’t know why, my mood has been a bit up and down but not terrible. I ALWAYS lose interested in projects/hobbies so this is one that I am trying my hardest to keep up. Forcing myself. Anyway, I have a new idea (not technically mine).


Someone I spoke to on here does drawings to accompany posts about mental health (get in touch if it’s you and I’ll credit you :D). I’m not committing to doing these everyday because being realistic I just won’t have the time & energy. What I am planning on doing though is letting my mind do the drawing so it should be an accurate depiction of my mood. I guess some of the drawings might be difficult to understand drawing this way so I will try to explain them in the post or you can always ask and I’ll answer!

Question for people who put their drawings/art online – How do you get them onto your computer? My first thought was to just take a photo of the drawing and upload that but that might look garbage. I have a scanner…Is that the way forward? Thanks.

Just a stranger writing about their life as a mental illness sufferer. I hope you can relate to the content on my site :)

  1. My scanner was shit quality, I take pictures with my phone. I did a 30 days of daily drawing in October, the “Inktober” challenge and it was awesome. Tiring too though, to keep doing something daily like that. I remember dragging myself to do it some days, but once I started drawing, I felt awesome.

      1. It is more about practice than talent. Keep drawing daily and use references. I use references for all of mine, be it a picture or someone else’s bigger piece of art.

      2. I’ll keep that in mind 🙂 I want to see what just comes out of my head rather than let myself be influenced from others. If it’s utter shite I’ll definitely be referencing 😂
