Hey all! So, this time last year, I stopped updating for a while. I ended up having a nervous breakdown over harassment, and fled my house out of fear of people making good on threats to hurt me and my family. My friends were being doxxed. My friends then were being intimidated into not talking to me anymore. I shut down my Discord server to avoid them being harassed, and I isolated myself in order to avoid them getting hurt more. It didn't work. It never works like that. It's only ever about hurting others, so when I left, they were still trying to hurt people around me. People who had done nothing except exist in my space and enjoy my art.
It took several weeks to recover and decide I could keep going and keep posting, and this time, we came together and made art pieces about our fears, anxieties, bad feelings, and everything in that family -- in order to express solidarity as a group, and to stave off creeping isolation that can crop up when you feel like no one understands you or what you've been through.
I don't want anyone to feel like they're alone, but it's also a challenge to help people work out their emotional problems that cause them to feel isolated. Creative expression is an excellent medium for it - and I'm stoked to get to show off everyone's pieces.
Here's the link to the Patreon post where you can download it! (Warning: there is some body horror and artistic nudity in this! Please be warned in case those things make you uncomfortable!)—glitchedpuppet
