I saw this photo and was really drawn to it. Then I saw the title and was like, oh! of course I would! PTSD here.

I think you really could express your anxiety.

Is there any way that I could get in touch with the creator of this piece of art? I would love to use it as the cover for a story I'm writing. It's about the anxiety that human beings face in day to day life and how we generally deal with it. This artwork is perfect for it, but I don't know whether there are copyright claims regarding this? Therefore I'd love to talk to the creator :). Thanks in advance,

I really like that you chose a white background for this. And I think you captured not only the disorder but the general anxiety that people get very well. The fire effect and the paint are used very well as well. 
Really cool work there :)

Epic fucking win. Can you do one for Bi Polar, PTSD or ADHD? (I'm cursed with all three)

This is just wonderful. From my first look it demonstrates perfectly the feeling of anxiety, It shows how you're burning inside and how much you are afraid of it or rather How you are afraid of it. Then I read your story about this image, and I almost get the meaning of it. Also the story struck me, because I'm going through a very similar moment right now and it gave me more courage to deal with my problems and to continue my life in a better way. Bravo beethy, to you and to the model too! You have a new great fan now.
sorry for the bad english.

This isn't just any anxiety, this is a rich, existential, not-chemically-induced, personal anxiety! Good on ya! 10/10

I think this would work AMAZINGLY well for our "MELT" issue of East Coast Ink. Let's talk? Also, VERY interested in a print.
