Sinking, 2013 (NSFW)

Sinking is a comic about depression and anxiety, drawn in 2013. It has been collected in my zine I Don’t Like My Hair Neat #2, which you can purchase from my web shop which is sold out now, sorry! You can read a review of it over at the FPI blog. For some more context, here’s what I originally posted to go with it over at my old blog:

Here’s a new comic. Short explanation: I’ve been struggling with depression and anxiety over the last couple of months and it’s been frustrating as nothing I was feeling, or rather not feeling, made any sense to me because I was quite certain that I liked my life before that hit. I know that’s not how depression works but it was incredibly frustrating nonetheless. I was thinking of writing something educational about it, auto-bio style. You know, I’ve been suffering from this and some people think it’s this but it’s really like this and blah blah blah. Then I thought there’s enough of those on the internet and I don’t want to do that kind of thing anymore, so instead I sat down and this came out. I have, at this point, absolutely no idea how I feel about it as a piece, as my state of mind has changed considerably since I’ve drawn it (I feel a lot better now!), but maybe you’ll like it. It’s colourful!
