Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves, and of course, for each other. If girls dressed for boys they’d just walk around naked all the time.– Betsey Johnson (via flaews)

"boy i’m in a great mood!"
"oh, please. you can’t REALLY be in a great mood. there are people out there who just got raises. people just got married. people are being reunited with their families right now. how dare you say you’re happy."
The equivalent of someone saying you can’t be sad because other people have it worse than you.
Americans can’t be sad because other countries have it worse than you.
Mental health problems are, y’know, health problems. Treat them the same way, or shut up.
Greyhounds, referred to as ‘Galgos’ in Spanish, are commonly used as sporting dogs in Spain. They are most commonly used to hunt hares and other forms of small game. According to the World Society for the Protection of Animals, tens of thousands of Spanish Greyhounds are cruelly hanged to death every year at the end of the hunting season. Dogs who had more successful hunting seasons are reportedly rewarded for their talents by being hung higher up or with shorter ropes, allowing them a quicker death. Dogs who performed poorly during the hunting season are commonly hung on longer ropes, so that their feet just barely touch the ground, forcing them to suffer a prolonged and torturous death.

Guys, seriously. Signal boost. I needed this the other night, and a few weeks ago I was talking with someone who needed it. This is the best freaking thing ever.
For years, mental health professionals taught people that they could be psychologically healthy without social support, that “unless you love yourself, no one else will love you.”… The truth is you cannot love yourself unless you have been loved and are loved. The capacity to love cannot be built in isolation.–

The Real Monsters are reborn!
Upon getting so much attention for my previous designs, I wanted to redesign the monsters and develop the concept a little more. You’ll notice most of the monsters have subtle alterations and the descriptions have been changed to better reflect my original concepts.
Over the coming weeks I will release more (never seen before) monsters and will also release concept sketches and developmental work for each monster shown here- So stay tuned! (They may also be little animations…)
Disclaimer: The artwork is not at all intended to make light of these conditions but instead is intended to give these intangible mental illnesses some substance and make them appear more managable as physical entities.
