Dear whomever takes the time to read this,
I am here to ask for help as I am in a sticky situation and I want to help myself out of it slowly but I can’t without help.
My dream has always been to become an artist and I tried my best to make it come true but it was always hard for me to keep trying and not giving up as I struggled with depression at a very young age, and also tried to take my life at the age of 13. Because of my depression and anxiety it is also hard for me to land a job that doesn’t involve me talking to people since I have break downs if i’m told that someone else did something wrong and if the blame was put on me or if a small issue was complained to me I just can’t help but break down. My mom which no longer lives in the same household as me always complains to me when she takes me to school since that’s the only time we see each other, she always complains that I need to make money and stop being lazy but never sees the side of me that fights to get up and continue trying and the side of me that wants to do art for a living. And I want to prove that to her that I can with my dream.
I love drawing and always have but throughout the years that I’ve been drawing, I have never able to find my own style in art. I am very good at looking at an image and trying my best to replicate but I know I can’t get far in the art industry copying others styles. So this is where i want to begin my new art life.
The money that will be donated to me will be used for a Screen Drawing Tablet which is $289.99 currently on amazon and a drawing software which is $49.99. With the drawing tablet and the software I will try find my own style and design things I love which is stickers. From there if I do well ill continue my dream of opening my own online shop of selling art and save up for a wacom cintiq and continue on doing something with my life.
Thank you for your time and i hope you can consider helping even with a dollar or two.
