Persephone by Kate MacDowell
As someone who lives with mental illness, this hits me like a ton of bricks. Proserpina helped me come to terms with my mental illness at its worst. It’s a dark place, but it’s not all bad. It’s a place I have to go sometimes. And it can be terrible. But it’s a part of me. And there’s always a Spring after the Winter, always a dawn after the darkness.
I like the OP’s perspective and Kate MacDowell is an amazing artist.

Hello! Even though we’ve only talked through internet, thank you for saying nice things when I’m depressed. Thank you for giving me compliments when I’m in doubt with my skills. Thank you for being ready to listen. Thank you for noticing that there’s something wrong with me when no one else can. Thank you. :)
This is very powerful.
“Perhaps death is not the hardest thing in a painter’s life… Looking at the stars always makes me dream, as simply as I dream over the black dots representing towns and villages on a map. Why, I ask myself, shouldn’t the shining dots of the sky be as accessible as the black dots on the map of France? Just as we take the train to get to Tarascon or Rouen, we take death to reach a star.”
Starry Night Of Starry Nights of the Day: One evening when cloudy weather put a halt to his astronomy research, Harvard Ph.D. student Alex Parker was inspired to get creative — so he uploaded the top 100 images from the Hubble telescope into a mosaic-making program and recreated Van Gogh’s iconic 1889 painting.
No big deal.
So, here’s the weirdest thing I’ve drawn in a while.
My wife and I have been watching some classic Disney movies and it got me thinking about the short-lived gigantic final forms some of the villains take. Maleficent, Jafar and Ursula in particular spend seconds as massively destructive titans. It got me thinking about what would happen if they were able to spend days, even weeks as apocalyptic monsters. Then I started to wonder what would happen if you had to deal with all three at once. You’d probably want to limp away and wait until they finished one another off.
