"Never"

I did not write the word.

I did not own a pet.

My subject did not change.

My subject was "change."

The word would symbolize defeat.

So I will not write it, ever.

An old fogie in the picture, but seems young in the panels. Does this mean something in symbology? :?

The dream began when he was young and it never changed, while he grew old.

The rat is a symbol of death, and I had it hit a little extra hard having the rat take a bite out of his dead body.

I wrote a lengthy description.

And I bet YOU saw it in person. At the time I called it "the most depressing picture ever" I think.

Woah, this is some deep stuff! I take from it that you likely feel like youll be pressured to make tfs until the day you die. You try to retire, but your fans wont let you.

You managed to do something well done in both appearence and story

Not from fans. From myself. It's who I am. It's my choice, despite the laws of the universe saying it probably won't happen. Those pictures on the wall weren't done for a fan - they were done for me.

I'm not a psycologist but it sounds almost like an addiction, especially if you feel trapped by it. Do seek help if you feel like this. I may like your art but if it's tearing you apart you should stop

It already tore me apart. This is a picture of the wound. I'm better now.

Thats even more intense

Well, you have to love your own art. You can't count on other people to appreciate it. It's nice if they do, but you can't go into being an artist thinking you'll make people like you or anything.
