[164] Longing by mcptato [164] Longing by mcptato
Sticks and stones break bones
but your words can't ever hold me. 

Took me a while to realize that this was going to be posted on Valentine's Day and uhhh... well apparently this is how my subconsious feels about it! Jk or not idk I came up with this concept a few days ago haha. Shout out to all them singles! We can wallow in our loneliness together!! 

BTW for the next 2 weeks, my schedule is going to be extremely busy because I'm taking a full set of classes, trying to finish some freelance work, applying to colleges for transferring (especially stressful), finishing up  my portfolio for the transfer applications, and then daily doodles. So I MIGHT miss a few, but I am going to try my best not to mainly because it's completely doable I just get distracted by the internet when I should be using that time to draw haha.

Just a heads up as to why I probably won't answer comments/questions in that time span. Apologies ahead of time! I appreciate all the support <333333!!

I just lost my dear husband of February 17... we had 23 years together but it wasn't anywhere near enough... our last Valentines Day was spent in the hospital. Your amazing piece is exactly how I feel right now. It wrenches at my heart but it is also healing to put such a strong image to my pain. Thank you for your beautiful art. :heartbreak: :cheerup:

The reason I make work, especially art that comes from deep inside myself, is to be able to speak to others in ways I never can. I am very sorry for your loss, I don't want to pretend like I know you but I do know that it's difficult and I know there'll be a lot of hurting and it may never go away. Even still, I hope that the times you shared were and still can be cherished and that your life can be just as fulfilling even in his absence. To know that my art has helped you even a little bit means so much. Hugs from afar, thank you for your comment and I wish you all the strength and perseverance in your time of mourning and pain.

I dunno why, but the expression on her face makes me want to cry and that's a good thing.

This is how I feel when I get a strong crush on a book character.

Valentine's Day for the single people. But, let's look on the bright side: at least we don't have to worry about ordering the wrong flowers or forgetting completely.

Lool can't argue with that. I dont miss the looks I used to get for forgetting the card with flower's or sometimes vice versa.

OMG, I know, right? I swear, people save their nastiest looks for the holidays. At least, that's what it feels like when you're getting the stink-eye from someone who expected a Valentine and didn't get one.

It's amazing as always, I love how you placed what people say to make up a body, and how it seems to fall apart around the edges!

10/10
