Hi. Your art brought me to tears. It's beautiful.. and so sad. 

I've written a song called flying colours, and I've put together a promo video clip. 
I would love your permission to use this image in the clip. 

Alas I'm broke, but I'd be more than happy to include your name in the credits. 

You can find the (unadvertised) clip on my draft website:

If you go to 'albums' and then 'regaining colour' you'll see it there. 

All the best to you. I hope to hear from you soon!

Hi. I was doing a work on depression for my school and I found your drwaing while looking for a picture for the front page. I just stopped by to let you know that I am very impressed by how you represented that terrible illness. Hope you continue doing great pieces of work like this.

I really like your drawing the way you made the tears the colors leaving the body was vary creative. I have depression and normally I don't care about a lot of things but I really like this and I hope you make more in the future. Keep up the good work. <3

It's beautiful, I found this in a article with 100+ illustrations of depression and none of the artists were credited :P but Google is my friend so I found my favourite one aka this one.
