the waves of depression have suppressed me, once again.   
i was manic and busy for so long this time, it was great.  i was dieting and exercising and drawing constantly - but now i'm binging and staying up all night.


i've been working on a big project called "the rosey throats club" - this is its facebook page: www.facebook.com/RoseyThroats
it's my first full-colour book, and has some pretty awesome guest artists in it.  

good bye.

the zine is called "wash your hands & repeat" and is an art zine (no articles).  all illustrations must be OCD/anxiety themed and must be in greyscale to fit an A5 white portrait-sized page.  it can be as fucked-up/insane as you want.  i prefer that you have some sort of anxiety disorder, too - but i can't inforce this.  

i'll give a free copy to everyone to submits, too!  if you want copies for other people i'll have to ask for a paypal money to cover printing/postage cost.

so tell me if you're interested in this journal and then e-mail the picture to wowphilip @ gmail.com.  in the e-mail also tell me your name and the website i should put in the book.  the sooner the better on the submissions, as my distributors are waiting (a week at most).

i've never done this before so i'm really hoping it works out.  

philip dearest.

i feel painfully close to being able to draw again - like there is something about to explode inside my throat.  it's a feeling like you've forgotten what you were going to say, but you know it was brilliant and would change everything - except with art.  i'm still just twiddling my thumbs until it eventually comes rushing out.
  • Mood: Not Impressed
  • Listening to: bright eyes.
you know it's bad when you're too depressed to play video games and just end up staring at your torrents download for hours on end.  

i have also, strange enough as it seems, quit smoking.  albeit, i've not drawn in months.
