Rose's Rose - PURPLE:icontagl:Rose's Rose - PURPLE:icontagl:Rose's Rose - PURPLE:icontagl:Rose's Rose - PURPLE

In March 2017, Ceci, the artist known as tagl, took her own life. It'll be her birthday on the 19th of September, the first one she will in no way, shape or form, celebrate. But MroczniaK asked us to remember her.

Never forget
19th of September is a date of Ceci's (known as :icontagl:) birthday. She was a great artist, my inspiration and lovely friend. I always enjoyed her arts and loved her OC - Lollipop angel Ceci. And...she became an angel herself in March this year...
She is no longer with us, but she can be alive in our hearts. Let's show her and the world that she won't be forgotten. Let's show our respect and love to that sweet angel by what she and we do best - by art. For that special day - her birthday, let's draw some beautiful fanarts of her character~! ♥ I hope you will join, personally I'm going to draw something special for her.
Never forget you, Cecilia Lovera aka tagl. ~ ♥ 

And I do remember Ceci. 
I remember her challenging me to be a better artist. I remember her bold colours and mixing of traditional and digital media making me think, there are no limits with art.  I can do whatever I want! 
I remember talking to her on msn. I remember her as kind, and hard working.
And now, I'll remember her as someone who had had enough. As I went through her gallery and Youtube channel for this piece, I realised that before she took her own life, a friend of hers had done the same.

How horribly alone and guilty she must have felt, not seeing her friend struggle, and disappear. And now, with one friend less, to try and manage with the hole they left behind.

Suicide is not beautiful. Suicide is not brave. But suicide is also not something you can mock the person who went through it for.
Every single person who ends up killing themselves have felt alone, and suffered. Suffering in pain they felt either will not, or should not, ever end.
Being on the brink of suicide is one of the loneliest, emptiest, shittiest feelings in the world.

There is nothing beautiful or graceful about it. There is so much Ceci will never get to see get better for herself; there is nothing for her now.
And everyone who she left behind, everyone who ever cared about her, will just have to make do with the pain her disappearance caused.
Suicide isn't beautiful. It's lonely as hell. I'm not mad at Ceci, or her friend, or anyone who takes their life.

I am incredibly sorry for them. To have so much pain you feel you can't share or let go of, that ending your life feels like the better option.
It never is. But I can understand the feeling. 

The people who really do go through with suicide are never noticed until it's too late. So I won't tell anyone to be extra careful or on the lookout for signs or some shit. Trust me, if someone wants to die and to not be stopped, they will.
... instead... please remember this. All of us struggle. All of us have pain. All of us, any one of us, no matter how seemingly care-free, silly, happy... all of us wear masks to hide the pain inside. 
You will never know who will be the one to end it, because it's just too much. You will never know the full experience of someone's life; there'a always more than they say, show or that you see.

So always be kind. It's our empathy, forgiveness, kindness, our ability to withhold striking back, which can save a life.

Thank you Ceci for your kindness in my life.
Thank you for the beauty of your art which you shared.
Your time on this earth was way too short; I hope whenever you are, you feel better now. angel wing right

What a charming, colorful piece of work. I'm sure she would have loved to receive such a lovely piece of work from you. I especially love the way you draw the eyes, they sure look like beautifully framed jewels upon the character's face.

It's heartbreaking to find out how another young, creative and overall beautiful life is lost far too soon for whatever reason ended up claiming them in the end. I was once told that some of the souls who are born into this world are too frail to survive in this world and lose their fight no matter how hard they fight to make it through another day. But in the very least one can only hope that they can find some peace in their rest afterward. I looked at her gallery for a while and have to say she was a very talented artist. May she rest in peace.

She was a huge inspiration to me. Wasn't she murdered though?
