Inktober Day 17 – “Graceful” + Day 18 – “Filthy”

These two are from a short story I made, Immaculate, which is about as close as I’ve ever come to “vent art.” It was my way of conceptualizing the desperate phase in severe mental illness, when you’re expending every ounce of your energy to maintain a facade of normalcy to those around you even as you can feel yourself rotting from the inside out.

I’d like adapt it into comic form, someday.
