Pinned toot

Hello, my name is Joanna. I love to paint and draw because it helps me to relax and focus on my personal goals. I'm struggling with depression, which is why I am also struggling with being productive. But I'm trying my best to keep going.

Depression is getting worse lately and I struggle to focus. I try to draw something, barely able to stay awake, and I’m afraid that my condition won’t change for the next weeks. Brain fog has been an issue for years - I tried working out and taking antidepressants, but it never really helped me to lift that dark cloud from my brain. I feel tired every single day. It’s hard to accept this condition if you want to be very productive and growing :(

I'm in therapy for years but my avpd makes my life a living hell. I feel like I'm trapped in a trauma-loop of avoidance and fear.

I just needed to get this off my chest...


ILLUSTRATION PRICING SURVEY RESULTS... In this survey I looked into a number of factors which influence illustration fees. I also gained some really interesting insight from commissioners of illustration too. Hope this opens more discussion.


I'm learning to simplify color and form. So I painted with a simple hard brush. Inspired by Algenpfleger's studies :)

I’ve had this picture in my wip folder for over half a year I think, but I finally managed to finish this after all this time. Anyhow, hopefully you like!

I need to read more books about academic figure drawing - I feel that I keep making the same mistakes over and over again :/ I still struggle with figure shading as well.
