So this is a couple months old, it was a /r/sketchdaily piece about daily annoyances - in the past I have struggled with dermatillomania (compulsive picking) and it is definitely a daily annoyance! My old computer crashed and I thought this was gone - then I remembered that I had uploaded it before (: Unfortunately I only have this small version.

Hi, I'm writing to ask if I may include a dermatillomania-related art piece in an assignment. I'm a Master's in Journalism student, (I also have dermotillamania) and I'm  working on an article that explores the lack of awareness of dermatillomania by the general public and even some medical professionals. I would be happy to reference your blog, or reference you in any way you'd like. This article would appear on a WordPress site. Thank you for considering, Jessica.

Hi! It's probably far too late but yes, this work is under the Creative Commons license so that's totally fine!

My back is a little like this. But I have a lot more scar marks.
This looks great! I think you captured the feel very well :D.

Can I use this for a poem I'm writing?

It's not too small.  I wish I could get my drawing to upload this size -_- But good job!

I have been trying hard to stop picking but sometimes I don't even realize I'm doing it... Right now my back is ok but I still have lots of scabs I keep on removing so nothing is healing fully. Hopefully I can get my back to heal fully eventually.

Haha, it's quite funny , there was an advert for skin care products at the top of the screen when I was viewing this, just thought I'd share the irony.

Oh man, that is funny. It's like they know...
Also, my back was this bad when I drew this pic, but right now I only have one spot! There's no silver bullet but if you combine things like a better diet, less stress and giviny your hands something to do, they really add up and make a difference (:
