Why We Bleed Art by Satyros Phil Brucato

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

My talented author friend wrote this article about the plight of true artistry. I have vivid memories of reading it a few years ago, and when it comes along my newsfeed, I don’t re-read it very often. It’s powerful stuff, and sometimes I don’t want to cry and feel all torn open and understood. But if that’s where you are today, if you’re an artist wondering why you bother or what drives you to continue slamming your face into the cement to live your life on your terms, and you’d like someone who has been there to blow your fucking doors off, this is the article for you.

Why We Bleed Art

The Real Monsters by Toby Allen

Character designs based on mental illnesses.

The artwork is not at all intended to make light of these conditions but instead is intended to give these intangible mental illnesses some substance and make them appear more manageable as physical entities. РToby Allen

An utterly amazing ongoing project which I’ve no doubt has and will help many, many people. This is what it’s all about!
