It's All In Your Head Kickstarter!

It's all in your head is the definite collection of my inktober illness and armor up series all in one hardback book.

And it's live now!

Featuring over 175+ pages of art and never before seen insight on my inspiration on such a stigmatized subject.

Help bring this to life here: kck.st/2sD0rI6

" 2 years ago I created 31 different mental health behaviors for the annual Inktober series (where every October, artists draw a piece of art in ink for each day), having no idea that those images would completely change my life. With every illness I posted, people from around the world reached out saying the artwork described how they felt when their words couldn’t, and for a moment, the art helped them not feel so alone in their battles.

Mental health professionals from the US and Europe now use the artwork as a way to help speak to their clients, and I couldn't be more honored. By creating art that focuses on our hidden, but universal struggles, I too have been able to open up about my own battles with depression so that others won't feel so alone. With this book, I want to help bring comfort for those who need it on a larger scale, and I can only make this happen with your help. I want this to be more than just a book of art. I want this to be the first step for many to start a movement using darker art as a way of communicating how we feel.

The book will feature all of my mental health and human condition art with descriptions as well as the inspiration for each piece giving fans a never before seen look into the process. I want to remove the stigma around mental health so that we can all begin the healing, together. I hope you’ll join me . Armor up, and battle on."

Arachnophobia
This year for inktober I decided to tackle phobias. On Nov 1st, I'll be releasing a book of all 31 fears, and you can get it at www.amnclothing.com


As many of you probably know, I rarely use this site. Occasionally I'll feel like posting but the whole dA scene just doesn't do it for me anymore and seems more littered with amateur porn and furries. I frequent more on ig : ShawnCoss and facebook if you'd like to keep up to date with my work!

I'll be at all of them!

Connecticon will be the first convention that I'm selling all amn clothing and merch along with the explosm brand. Hope to meet some of you.

Heyo just wanted to say hi and let you know some things.well one, i've got to say you are without a doubt  one of my favorite artists of all time, and my favorite horror artist. I saw the illustrated mental illnesses and they were so cool! I myself have multiple mental illnesses (generalized anxiety disorder, ADHD, and an unknown emotional disorder) and really bad insomnia and i gotta tell you the anxiety one and the insomnia one i can confirm was super accurate ^-^. The illustrated phobias were super rad as well, anyways, yeah i just wanted to let you know how much i admire you and all your work.
